I'm partial to the Camelbak brand packs. I've tried a couple of other brands a long time ago, so I don't have any recent experience with other makes. I also see many shops carrying Osprey hydration packs now. The big issues I found that affected my preference were the closure of the reservoir and the design of the bite valve.
My own pack is a Camelbak Lobo, which provides a lot less cargo capacity than what you desire. I see a lot of folks with the MULE. How well the compartments are arranged can be more important than overall volume. I like having a few small to medium sized compartments to keep things accessible and wellorganized.
