    Are you looking to sell or just telling me to put more into my listing?

    while none of these are barter sites, they may have what you want which may help tighten your search parameters
    some military style, some backpacker style

    woot.com had a few
    backcountry.com has a wide variety of backpacker packs
    fieldsupply.com has usually lots of Browning ones and sometimes some other brands
    dvor.com often has tactical/military packs on sale
    lapolicesupply.com have lots, often a knock off brand but i do have a few of theirs, and they have stood up well if only in the back seat of the truck, though they are often cheap ( not internal frame) but they do have a few good features

    The more info you provide the better chance of getting what you need in either info or items

    They're not worth selling. Old and beat up things that have seen a lot of hard use. In your listing you might seek a lot of pockets, back bands in good condition, a hold open bar to make it easier to pack and unpack, and enough external rack for your sleep system and tent. Firm shoulder straps and heavily padded waist belt with quick release. A back pocket for maps etc is a good thing to have also. Hope this helps.

    Look for a surplus ilbe pack. With some searching they can be had very cheaply.

    Military packs ar never comfortable. They'rebuiltfortherough and tumble. Civilian packs are far more comfortable, and equally fragile, but lighter as well.

    i may have a spare pack, non military, in good shape.
    I think it was bought from costco, and i think it is a swiss army brand.
    If you want to pay the shipping, i can fire it off to you.
    PM me if you want a pic etc
