Default Good backpacks?

I'd like to buy a new backpack for my upcoming cruises. I'm thinking about something wheeled, for those occasions when I can do that, perhaps with a detachable daypack... but I'm open to all kinds of suggestions. Basically, I'd like something I can take on an airplane, not too heavy, durable, with a goodly amount of room. I'm leaning toward Victorinox and High Sierra at this point. Anyone have any input that might be useful?

The best backpack I ever bought (and still use to this day) was Kipling. They're expensive, but sturdier than anything I've used before, large but lightweight, and some of the newer ones have wheels too! I was going to get one with wheels for my sister, who's going to Europe this year, but wound up getting her a different Kipling bag instead.

North Face, Mountain Equipment Co-op(not sure its in the US) and Cabella's. I have or have had them all and you can't go wrong with any. All of these manufactures have outstanding warranties.
