Very hard to beat Maxpedition for quality. But, they are not a value brand.
What do you mean by tactical, and why tactical for hiking?

I have some gear I want to mount on the outside of the shoulder straps and back and sides of the pack

I have a 3 day pack but it doesn't have any molle webbing to easily mount gear, and I want something smaller

Well then, see above recommendation. For a value brand, check out Lapolicegear brand - good pricing and I’ve been very happy with the quality for the money.

I've been using a camelback dispatch for several years now. It has held up very well to everything I've thrown at, rain or shine on the motorcycle etc. Camelback has a great warranty and make a number of different bags

+1 for the Camelback. I have an older Mule. Mole straps and set up to hold two bladders. 35 liters verses cubic inches? I don’t know.

I am not sure what qualifies as a tactical backpack in your eyes, but in addition to traditional, brand-name trail packs, I have an SOG backpack. It has a modified MOLLE panel, and is pretty well made and near your price point. It is not a traditional brand name in backpacks, but mine seems to be equal to Kelty, NorthFace, CamelBack, and Arcteryx packs I have. It is currently set up as a bugout/medical supply/emergency bag in may garage.


This isn't my exact bag (it is older, and in a super-quick search I couldn't locate it), but this is one of many they offer. Here is a retailer link: https://www.evike.com/products/83728/

The bag shown below lacks "traditional" MOLLE straps, but is compatible with the system. They have MOLLE and Velcro on other backpacks, so the brand may be worth a look. Good luck.

I have a Cannae legion day pack. Even though I'm in a government job I can't CC due to dress code (tucked in shirt) but I'm on site 90% of the time. I carry all my EDC plus more and my bag is with me all day. Right now they are running a 15% promotion so you could get it for around $80.

Not really a "tactical" bag, but I ordered this one a few days ago. Was looking for something I could put a take-down carbine, and a few extra mags in that didn't just scream 'THERE'S A GUN IN HERE!!!!'

Should be here next week. I'm looking forward to getting it.

Thats a nice looking long gun case. I may actually order one of those as well. I just put a mossberg 590 on layaway and going to be in the market to get a case for it soon.

It's only gonna work if the gun is a short takedown though. It's only 27" long, but you can't really tell that from the pic.
