This pack is my do-everything pack for going to work, carrying stuff, day trips, summer overnight trips etc. Mine is now about 8 years old and will be good for another 10+ years. It is one robust pack.
"Our nice, simple canvas day pack built for New Zealand’s rugged conditions. Simple construction, minimal seams, c-canvas for durable water resistance and that traditional, diamond-in-the-rough feel. The size, simplicity and all-round toughness make this a popular pack for commuters, walkers, trampers and hunters alike. Also, in a nice (and, it has to be admitted, unplanned) turn of events, the Miklat meets sizing requirements for cabin baggage – another string to this pack’s bow. An extremely versatile Cactus classic."

The Miklat replaced a Macpac that had 20 years of everyday use and abuse. The current Kakapo 35 would fit the bill as well as the Miklat.
"Sustainability starts with products that last; buy a pack that you can use year after year, trip after trip and finally can be given to the next generation to be enjoyed. The Macpac Kakapo is such a piece of kit; classic clean Macpac lines, extremely durable AzTec® fabric and a no frills set up."
