Default Best 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?

That is a tough question to give a direct answer on. I would say go to a store or couple of them and look around and find one that might suite you best.

Go to L.L. Bean. They have a great selection. They have so many styles and colors and sizes. All of my back packs have come from there and so has my luggage. Rember if it rips for some reason you can send it right back and they'll send you back a new one.
Good luck!

I love www.campmor.com......I could look for days on this website.They have some very reasonable prices and just about everything you could ever think of needing.As for as backpacks go...I have 2 backpacks..a tradional one and then a very soft one.I love the soft one.It is more comfy to wear than the more structured backpack.I guess you would be calling this a day pack...Dot
