Sharing my very low budget packing list after onebagging for months on end
​. Bag - Decathlon Forclaz 40L (less than $40). Previously I was happy with the REI Ruckpack 28L.

Sharing my silly bag problem with my fellow addicts. I gathered up all of my various bags and pouches, and it made me realize how ridiculous things have gotten. Might be time to downsize my collection. Sharing a few of my favorites and will add a full list in the comments.
I didn't need this. I had a brief gym phase, ugh. Orange REI Ruckpack (28L).
New old pack day: REI Ruckpack 28. Thumbs up!
I picked up a used REI Ruckpack 28 for a song today and I'm impressed with all the bells and whistles build into it. The only non-travel feature that stands out is the top opening, but using packing cubes and folders and the side access zippers cure most of that. I'd like to see some compression straps on the bottom sides as it is a little deep at 10". Otherwise it will haul as much as I care to carry.

Whenever I would use the water bottle holder on the outside, it would compress the inner side pockets and take up internal volume. Then I tried an REI Ruckpack, and that had a variety of issues which made it a nonstarter.
A Tom Bihn-esque bag that's not a Tom Bihn? Are there any alternatives...?
I swear by the rei ruckpack. Perfect organization for normal travel, great straps and frame for hiking.
Under 40L backpacks for a short 5ft woman, and less than CAD $230?
I have the small version (I think the other sizes are medium and x-small) and I think it more than fits what I need. But it will definitely stand you out as a tourist. If you’re worried about that, it doesn’t have hip straps, but my smaller urban travel bag is the REI Ruckpack 28 and it has a ventilated back, rain cover, fits plenty of travel clothes, and looks more blended in.

Budget OneBag brands?
They come in different torso sizes and have a frame and load bearing hip belt. The REI Trail 25 and Ruckpack 28 bags are great if you can get down to a Spartan packing list.

Looking for an EDC backpack that can double as a onebag for a weekend trip or longer. Can't decide what to get
I typically do edc/road trips/overnighters and travel internationally for any length of time with the REI Ruckpack 28L. That being said, I was recently looking at some of these bags as options and I would probably go for one of the Aer options. I just wish the carrying handle was removable, though. I think it looks a bit funky flopping about when in backpack mode.

Osprey Daylite 26 + 6 OR REI Ruckpack 28 OR something else?
I have the REI Ruckpack 28 Recycled Day Pack and love the features. I have used it for a long weekend trip as a carry-on and on the trail several times. No problem fitting under a seat. First it is light but durable.
