I'd recommend the camelbak Talon for a daypack kind of thing ( I have two of these and they're great packs. Easy to load, well laid out, very versatile, and they'll take a serious beating.

For backpacking, I'd recommend the Granite Gear Chief Patrol ( due to it's capacity, comfort, build quality, layout, and overall weight.

If you don't mind the additional weight, Mystery Ranch is a great way to go for a backpacking pack. The NICE frame is quite comfortable.

We use Meret bags on our ambulance and I love 'em. I was thinking about their Pro EMS Personal Response Bag, but I'm balking a bit at the $200+ sticker.

So my first impression of the Maxpedition Falcon 2 are VERY good. To be honest, I was expecting this to be anything different then your run of the mill backpack. But, SWEET-SASSY-MOLASSY!, this thing is great.

It's compact. However if you pack it full of stuff it expands and can expand to a pretty large capacity. Pockets are everywhere, and if you don't want to use them, then you don't have you since they don't get in the way of interior storage space. Zippers are high quality. Shoulder straps are VERY comfy. Everything is fully adjustable. The bottom has a thick leather-like piece of material.

I can't find any drawbacks at this time. I'm looking forward to taking it out in the field and running it through the paces.
