Weekend bag for under $200?

Anyone have any suggestions for a nice weekender for under $200?

For that matter, do you guys know of any that have an internal frame and a "doctor's bag"-style opening? Similar to this one from Duluth Trading:

And yes, right now this one is my favorite choice, but I wanted to see what else was out there, especially if there were any that were less expensive (or that came in a color other than khaki).

I was previously considering the Everlane Weekender (mainly because the navy + gray one matches my messenger bag), but damn, those leather straps look really cheap. Have they improved them since the first run?

Amazon has this Tommy Bahama bag that I really like the look of, and I like the bottom compartment (which I think could accommodate a folded jacket), but not only is it made of nylon and of a color I don't particularly like, its highlights (and handle!) are fake leather, which just makes me shy away. But I do like the compartment design.
