Overall, I really like this pack. The material is tough, and the construction, stitching is bombproof. The only thing I do not like are the shoulder straps. The adjustment buckles slide too easily and do not stay in place, and the straps themselves are a bit narrow, thin and slippery. A little padding with some grip material on the inside would make this a perfect bag in my opinion.
I did not purchase this bag but I am a current customer and enjoyed my other purchases.
The design of this bag includes waterproof zipper closures, but the drawstring top is wide open to rain water. I sometimes get caught hiking out in the rain and this bag needs a flap top to keep out the water. I do like the side opening zipper to access items buried at the bottom of the bag.
These bags are simple, rugged, sturdy and fun to own. We just bought our second one so my boy can lug around his stuff. He likes the side zipper where he can get in the bottom without opening the top. I like that I can sit it down on the ground without worrying about soaking up some liquid and staining it up. The first one we bought still looks new.
