I'm in the market for a new day pack. I'm looking for a pack for hauling rain gear and various articles of my layering system along with other typical hunting items i.e. spotting scope, lunch, etc. This pack may also be used for packing out a quarter or possible head and cape on the first load as I have my external frame for all the heavy lifting. One thing to keep in mind is the shoulder strap, as I typically keep my rifle slung over my right shoulder and have found bulky shoulder straps to be uncomfortable.
