    I just hit the local thrift stores and buy 'school' backpacks as well. A quick look at them will tell you what is durable and what is garbage, they're non-tactical and discreet, and best of all..... two or three bucks.

    Not a bad idea. The thrift stores around here have a lot of camping supplies too

    A decent empty backpack is a must for gun shows as well. Beats hauling your haul around half a day in your hands.

    I have a few of those I put on decent frames (rather than the crap one they come with). Nice pack, lotsa outside pockets, lousy frame.

    I do the same for shoes and boots. If I can get a great pair of rugged footwear for 3-5 bucks, I buy 'em, any size. Got me a whole binful now.

    LAPG.com has some pretty good packs, I have several and they hold up well. The 72 hour Atlas is probably my favorite. Autumn Creek also makes some nice packs that do not look tactical, they are not cheap however. I have a big one that is brown, it will hold more than you want to carry for an extended period.

    I don’t like to go cheap on footwear. I do a lot of backpacking and have experienced one too many blisters to skimp in that area
