It did survive a good thrashing on top of the jeepny during an excruciatingly long and bumpy drive (about 3 hours on a small bus packed with people and my head bent to a painful angle.
It has loads of room and is very comfortable to wear for the longer periods although my back did sweat a lot with it on.
Have used this 4 times for extended walks carrying 50-60lb. Because of the padding it is difficult to really load the hip belt as it keeps slipping down so most of the weight remains on the shoulders, not ideal over 3-4 day expeditions. Will keep using this as i need a large pack but not overly impressed really. You would expect the new product to be an enhancement/improvement on the previous version I suspect corners were cut to save on costs.
I walked the Ridgeway Trail with it last week - I carried enough supplies for 4 days and could have fitted enough for a week - it was comfortable the whole time, I had 16 kilos in it.
I would buy again and recommend to all.
The 1 star minus is for a small failure in a sewing (about 3cm(1inch)long) which we had to fix for our selves. Amazon did a great job by offering a new bag because of this matter, the new one did not have any problems at all.
All in one, a good bag for a good price!
Great rucksack, strong and durable and loads of pockets and storage.
The main compartment can be divided into 2, to keep dirty & wet gear away from clean & dry gear. There are 2 large mesh side pockets too. I felt these pockets were actually a little too large, with loose openings, and when the pack was full, often found items about to fall out of the side pockets due to how things were being pushed about by my other gear in the main compartment.
There is a rain cover included in a compartment in the lid. The lid also has a second zipped compartment.
The only other thing of note is the number of straps this bag has. It's bordering on excessive! The straps all are well placed and very useful in securing everything, especially if your pack isn't 100% full (Which lets face it, is quite likely given how big the pack is!). However, one thing to consider is air travel. Most airlines do not like having loose straps on bags going into the cargo hold. You can either secure the straps by wrapping and tucking them into the bag somehow, buy a "bag for your bag", or just chance it. I personally felt that the bag may be durable, but it wouldn't survive a strap getting caught in a conveyor belt! One other option is to use the rain cover, putting it on backwards, to contain most of the straps.
The poor side pockets, and the straps, are my reason for giving 4, and not 5 stars. I'm sure both issues could be sorted with careful planning and packing, however at the same time I also feel other packs out there don't suffer from these issues quite as much.
