mid-sized Rucksack

Alright, maybe this has nothing to do with cycling, but it everthing to do with traveling and maybe some of you could help me out. I'm looking for a rucksack to hold everything I need for a 2-7 day trip. I'm thinking something along the lines of a military rucksack, but I haven't been able to find one that I like. It seems like backpacks these days are either super-expensive internal-framed trekking/hiking/mountaineering packs or small super-expenive school packs and laptop cases. Does anybody know where I can find a rugged, unframed yet sizeable rucksack?

Try one of the larger CamelBAK's You don't have to use the water bladder if you don't want to.

Packs at Campmor.com

If you want a more military style pack, look at The 3-day Assault Pack. This was a pack I seriously considered to replace my current CamelBak RimRunner. I will probably get a Ultimate Directions Speed Demon or a GoLite Race Pack.

I just purchased a JanSport backpack, un-framed, soft, and not super-humungous.
It's for my son (age 12) to carry his books in.

I purchased it at CostCo for the amazingly comfortable price of about 12 bucks.

Check it out if you have any CostCos near you.
