Default Backpack pattern

I'm looking for a backpack pattern for an adult. Has anyone made one or know where to find one? Most that I have found doing a search are for children and I need one for myself for an upcoming vacation to Ireland.

I made my own pattern. Figured how tall and wide I wanted it. Drew pattern out on newsprint. Decide how thick and make gusset pattern. Put zipper in top and any pockets on the outside that you want. You can use a kids pattern for hints and tips on construction and just enlarge it
Just looked at the above link. There is a tut on there that is almost like I make. Looks like good instructions

I've made this one, good instructions. It came with adult and child sizes.

Thanks so much for pointing me to this bag. I watched the video and it looks pretty easy. I'm not sure it will be large enough, but I think I'll make one and if not as large as I want I will gift it and try enlarging the pattern.
