Basic expedition backpack by Czech-based Boll. Large pack with lots of attachments and external pockets for budget-minded backpackers.
I've used it a couple times now. Most recently on a two-day rainforest hike from the Northern Cross-Island Highway through Fufushan to the Lalashan Reserve. This is a pretty rough trail with sections in which you have to climb under and over trees, contend with low-hang limbs, and navigate chest-high arrow bamboo. I thought the pack responded quite well considering the conditions and it seemed quite stable once adjusted properly.
Without doubt, there are better packs available. However, at the price point of a little more than $100, this strikes me as one of the better options for someone looking to save a few dollars without sacrificing too much quality.
