Go to Decathlon.  :pok:  :D
I forget to say that my backpack has BTWIN letters in black color, so is even better than the photo.
Good luck
Sadly, they don't deliver to Switzerland (German site, my Spanish is practically non existent but as far as I got, they don't send to Switzerland either) and even if they would, the'd probably charge 40€ for shipping :viking:

I was thinking in helping you  ;)

But with the shipping rate calculator it gives me +- 36 €  :o :o :o

I carry a North Face Surge now. I carry a lot of crap and the bag is almost "too organized," has way too many small pockets and zippers for items that don't fit too well. And I wish i could remove the waist strap, it rides above my belly button when in use.

But it is by far the most comfortable backpack I have ever used. Out of the 17 backpacks i have tried, it feels the best.
Like this, but all red in the front.

The color is hard to find, i think this bag was a transition from the Surge 1 to the Surge 2. It has the coloration of a Surge 2 but the front pocket of a Surge 1.
You can see it in the background, I carry a random assortment of odd things, a hammock, fishing kit, spotlight, mini sledge, waterproof speaker, and tent stakes. Plus all the normal EDC Goodies.

Why can't you remove the waist strap? Heck if it's that bad just cut it off and burn the ends so they don't fray.. Or if your worried that maybe you'll want it back on in the future, cut it leaving about an inch and burn it, this way you can overlap and stich it back on?

I know that one bag I've had my eyes on for a while has just simple straps and a waist, and well, I'll need padded straps, which I think I have and can simply replace the ones that come with it since the bag has those weave threw thingys on it..

Slings

Wenger: Slightly larger than the Vic one. A bit slippery on the back but has some neat compartments in the outer compartment.

Victorinox: This one sits much better on the back. But the outer compartment is all wrong and has no organizing stuff.

While I don't carry a rucksack every day any more, when I do need one it's normally this small Wenger one.  I really like the fact it's got a stow-away waist strap, so when doing something active you can secure it tightly, but for more casual use you can get rid of the annoying straps hanging down.

Ok, the one pic in the top left is what it was before I did anything,, it was a nice bag but just way to big.. So, I did a little cutting, stitch ripping, and then sewing back up! Two days later and that's what I ended up with, I didn't want anything big, but if when I'm out I find something, I can take the zipper and run it around the pack and it will give it another 4" and make it about the size of a normal size pack.. Still got to do some customizing, zipper pulls, more Velcro for patches, and some other things, but at least all the hard craps done..

Thanks, it did seam like a nice bag, I just never got to using it cause it was so big. As far as the mod you can see the bag on the bag in the top left pic, I pretty much just took the middle section out and trimmed the back and extension to size, the one thing I thought of doing is there's a little compartment for a water bladder and moving the zipper to make it like a secret compartment, but after so many hrs of stress I said screw it and just closed it up. But I still have the zipper and it's still possible..  >:D

I would like to carry a backpack daily, but it is not practical for me.  For one, I work at home from a laptop at my kitchen table.  I guess I could wear a backpack while sitting here, but my Mrs. Powernoodle might give me the stink eye.  I also do not find it practical to carry a Man Sack while out and about.  I carry enough essentials in my pocket and on my belt - MT/SAK, light, Sharpie, small pistol, spare mag, phone, etc.  If I commuted to work, I would definitely EDC a bag.

I do keep a Maxpedition Mongo in my vehicle, and carry it to church and other occasions.  Its more of a convenience bag, containing an Anker battery, phone charger, note pad, pens, zip ties, Tums/Advil/Imodium. small FAK for boo boos and bleeders, MT, pepper spray, Nalgene bottle (Hibiscus tea), larger pistol with spare mags, etc.  From time to time, it gets too heavy and I have to thin the herd and start over.  Carrying a roll of Gorilla tape, a pair of sweet Knipex plier/wrenches, etc. is fun, but the weight adds up quickly.

I own 3x large tupperware containers crammed full of Maxpedition and 5.11 Man Sacks, bags and accessories.  But the Mongo fits my current requirements most closely.


No Sh*t Magnet or zombie patches.  I like to fly below the radar.

I hear you, I'm at home 95%, and the Mrs. Also gives me that look.. I also wear a boonie hat and very light weight long sleeve over shirt in summer, so I don't get toasted, and since there both tan I get made fun of since I look like Indiana jones, since he carries a bag..
  I used to carry everything in pocket or sheath since I didn't have a bag, but now the pockets and belt are lighted since I don't carry as much, and with a backpack or shoulder bag you can just stash everything in.. The bag I was using isn't that full but for some reason it was just pulling on the neck and it sucked having to take it off/on every time getting in/out of the car since wearing a hat and having to stretch it over, And with a backpack it doesn't have to go over head! The one I just made is about 11" wide, 15" tall but only about 2-1/2" deep, that is until you extend it, then it makes it about 6" deep.. This way it will hold my normal must haves, fak, multitools, flashlights, Rx's, and other goodies, yet if we stop somewhere and get something and I don't feel like carrying it, we'll make the bag bigger and toss it in.. Plus having a larger flat front face so I can put more Velcro on(what I'm working on) and can put more pins and patches on it! Gotta show my support for mt.o!
