Just returned from a trip with a Grey Ghost Griff Pack. No issues. Nice comfortable pack. BUT, a new LL Bean Continental Rucksack just showed up in the mail! No zippers and a good amount of room. Will try on the next trip. Now if only RYP or DPX would come out with a backpack.....

Took a Grey Ghost Gear Griff pack on the last OCONUS trip. It performed well. Just got an LL Bean Continental Rucksack. No zippers! Will try it next. Now only if RYP would make a DPX backpack...

Quick update:

Bag still performing well as my daily carry. No rips and the threading is holding up well, slight fraying, but not too surprising after all the times it's been slung around, thrown into cars, onto cargo pallets and aboard RHIBs. The external tie downs STILL like to catch on any exposed hatch, doorknob or other jutting protrusion. Still haven't cut it off, I must be a glutton for punishment.

I'm really loving my 5.11 All Hazards Nitro, built like a brick shithouse and very comfortable. Been stuffed behind helicopter seats all up the West coast of Africa, my go-to carry-on all over the place, been hiking and bushwacking through South American and Caribbean jungle, and is great as a laptop bag for work. At first I thought there were too many pockets but I've got them sussed out now.

One more shot with way too much DPx stuff hanging off it.....
