At last, sorry for the huge delay, but things have been passing me by without chance to catch a break and get back to you.
Lo and behold, the beauty arrived: Goruck GR1
I haven't been able to take it on as many trips as I would like, due to some nasty flu hitting the whole family, but it has been tested here and there. First of all, it is a great size for my use. The laptop fits in easily in its slot, if I'm biking around town. It sits well on the shoulders and doesn't wiggle around like some rucksacks can do.
The picture is from a weekend trip we had to our cabin. I forget what exactly what I brought, but I didn't have any problems fitting what I needed in there.
I didn't really know what to expect from the materials used, but it is a really sturdy rucksack. Just lifting it up by the handle, you know it is real craftsmanship put into it. And I love the "oversized" zippers - hot damn, they'll never break!
So if you are after a rucksack for everyday use, that also can go hiking, this is highly recommendable. If you should be in the far end of hiking/hunting trips, staying days out in the woods, it might get too small, but for me its perfect!
PS! The wife teases me cause I'm always looking for a chance to go out with my GR1
