Kelty Redwing 3100

I have a slightly older version of this. It's a heavy duty daypack. It could be used for 3 season overnights provided you have a compact warm weather tent/sleeping bag type stuff. See what i shoehorn into mine in my sig under hiking daypack.
All the best!

Another vote for the Kelty Redwing 3100. It's a damn good pack for under $100 and works well as either a day pack or a "camp pack", as you put it.

Kelty also has the MAP 3500 that would work well, too. You have to shop around to find it under $100, though. Here's one place that has it, but it's only just a hair under $100... http://www.amronintl.com/products.cfm?pageID=5056" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ...EBay might net you better (less expensive) results.

Yes, i forgot the MAP which looks to be a military version of the redwing. The fabric is a little heavier. The colors are more tacticool. If you look at the ACU version it's pretty cheap compared to the others. You have to select the color to see the price.
All the best!

Make it 3 for a Kelty Redwing 3100. Take a look at sunnysports.com. Couple months ago they had the best deal in town on 'em. Like $60 & free shipping. You'll be hard pressed to find a better value than these bags. It's a lot for the $$.

Equip it with Tactical Tailor straps and belt and you're still under $100.

I have Kelty Peregrine 1800 that has been my school backpack for 3 years. Only last year did I use it as a day pack for a rim, river, rim Grand Canyon hike. I stuck a 100oz Source hydration pack in the laptop sleeve, loaded the main pocket up with polypro, poncho, and food. I had water bottles in the side pockets. It has a small strap for your waist and a snap that connects the should straps. It was extremely comfortable, then again I only had about 15 lbs in it.

The woman wanted an everyday pack/bug out pack and this one doesn't look tactical at all. I'll ask her if she wants this for our anniversary instead of boots.
