    I have a whole bunch... Couple frame packs, couple ultralight internals, couple eberlestock packs with the scabbard, couple bug out bag day packs, giant custom internal for sheep.... They all have a purpose. I bet my family if 5 has 20-25 packs altogether, maybe more

    I have:
    DD/K2 Terraplane - External
    Eberlestock X2 - External Hybrid
    REI Daypack (setup as BOB)

    The bigger question is what I want next.. : )
    I like the external pockets on the back of the Dana packs. But it is a bit heavy and the waist belt has never fit me right.
    The Kifaru waist belt is hard to beat... The light weight Stone Glacier and KUIU packs are intriguing.. The Mystery Ranch packs look great, just to heavy for me to make a change. Nothing ever seems to catch me enough to drop $600 to replace what I have.. Decision, decisions.. : )
