    I prefer the kitchen sink only because i like the "O" instead of the "Oakley" logo.

    I've had the AP 2.0 and the Kitchen Sink, If you don't mind the bulk, the Kitchen Sink has tons of space. The AP was good too, but of the two the Kitchen Sink wins for me, the top storage compartment if perfect for protecting your sunglasses.

    the AP backpacks are perfect with the Vests!
    but for outdoor activities i use the wet & dry backpack.... it´s better if it´s starts raining and the wet & dry have enough space to take care of a lot of stuff :cool:

    To answer the original question, I prefer the 2.0 over the 3.0. The shoulder straps are thinner than the 2.0, plus its missing some contrast bar-tacked stitching, so over time the outer nylon covering would "rotate" around the padding for the shoulder straps...got annoying. Also the icon pack 3.0 is just kind of heavy as a backpack by itself, even when completely empty. (The kitchen sink is too though)...but if you dont mind, its a decent bag otherwise..

    Also the 3.0 seems to be stitched with cheaper quality thread than the 2.0. And the nets are prone to rip/tear.

    How tall are you? If you're taller than 5'9" you're probably better off with the Kitchen Sink. It is a pretty damn big bad and you can use it for all those things you mentioned.
