Military Style Backpacks

Most discussions are about well-known international makes. I'd like to start a thread about backpacks that are not necessarely recoginsed all over the world (yet) but are of good quality, available online and worth recommendation (there's no point of recommending sth that cannot be reached).

My personal recommendation is Arizzon Wolverine brand.
Mine goes in Muliticam and 50L - IMHO, the optimal capacity.
