SG20 is nice. I like the fact that you don't have to pressurize the tank after you take the lid off to refill. It has a chamber that keeps the pressure. Also only four pumps to reach full pressure

Shurflo - And you don't have to pump it, which is more comfortable on your arm.

I like my Shurflo electric BUT NO 4 gal backpack is going to be comfortable for any length of time. Consistently carrying 35-40 lbs on your back gets old fast.
