    I have some experience, and be able to help. However what is your price range??? Not really sure what your idea of "Lass" than a fortune is.

    I've no experience with PALS since I don't do tactical gear...however, as a professional river guide I've used for the past decade the NRS Pargon Portage Pack with great success to which I've posted comments about on at another thread...

    here's a link for pack....

    I've been to gun shows where someone is usually there selling bags to carry weapons like to a range. These bags are usually top quality triple strength nylon webbing, super strong, seversal internal pouches, just a damn fine bag. The price was over 300 bucks but worth it. I didn't buy it because I wanted it as a carry on bag for flying and as it would have been a great fit the price didn't add up to the use it would have gotten......I don't fly THAT much.
    In short, get to a gun show or look for bags on gun sites. I've also found in Army surplus stores and online bags used for tank repair tools, a little too small for me though.

    I have a Rush 5.11 24 for a work bag and two 72 for GHB/BOB bags. I am greatly satisfied with them. I shopped around on the internet forums and found both 72 bags for just a little over $100.00 new with tags shipped. I have had no complaints at all with my bags. I used a Blackhawk STOMP Medial Bag for a while, but retired it back to a medial bag for which it was intended for. The yoke shoulder straps are comfortable and easy to get on and off on the Rush bags. Hope this helps.

    I'm pretty happy with my medium alice. I have made several additions to the basic pack but with frame, pack, additions, i'm still sitting less than $150 spent. Plus it is very versatile in that I can take it off the frame if I want a light day pack for hunting trips, frame it up for multi day hikes. I have added four coyote IFAK pouches on the sides to allow for more stowage.

    Check out Condor Outdoor. I have been very happy with everything that I have gotten from them.

    A very good pack that will hold up with loads 130# to 200# is going to start at $700.00 and could go up to $1,400.00 with two different rain covers.

    I just got a medium alice with frame for $46. I spent another $20 for extra pouches. Assembly will be later this week, but I can tell it'll be a good pack.

    I bought a sierra designs Prophecy 35 liter a while back. Have been very happy with it. For me its the perfect size. I have some larger ones but they just don't do it for me like this one. The way it zips open and closes is the key. You can fit just about anything in it. They are showing 169$ on backcountry but you should be able to pick one up for around 100$ on ebay. It is super tough material and very light.
