I'm looking to get a backpack for trail running and walking. Any good ones you can recommend that come with a nice small price tag?

 I'm looking for something of about 25l for a big trip I'm planning soon to occupy a bivvy bag, stove, lots of water, basha + poles, food and dry clothes. I'm a big fan of Quecha (Decathlon) gear; this one was caught my eye so far :

try the OMM stuff, its designed to be ran with. I have the OMM adventure lite (20L) and use it on my daily commute. Its extremely stable and light as a feather.

OMM and other sacks are often for sale on the Outdoors Magic website.

This one looks like it might still be available, as there were no takers: http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/forum/forummessages/mps/dt/4/UTN/31154/

I have a Salomon Raid revo which I'm very pleased with but I don't think they make this anymore. Current equiavalent is the XA 20 (I think!?) but would also recommend the Inov-8 Race Elite 25. Tried one of these recently and it was certainly as good as the salomon.

Just make sure you get something that is specifically built for running. It will be far more stable and will not rub in all the wrong places!

I have the Salomon XA20, it is nice but very small, I also have an OMM one which is slightly bigger and very good for cycling or running.

Omm pack every time. Not cheap but very worthwhile. I use the 25l pack. Wouldn't trail or fell run without it. Also use it for hill walking and over night camping. Lightweight durable and good storage. Particularly like the waist pockets to store my much needed jelly babies.

I use an INNOV-8 pack for running . Mine is 12 litre capacity, but there is a larger one (i think its either 18 or 20 litres). i like how the water bladder fits around the waist.

try this one!

Anyone used a Berghaus Mach 24?
