I like the backpack but it ripped on the first trip I went on. My last backpack lasted me over 5 years. This one ripped in 1 week.
12 Month Update: I ended up using a safety pin to close the rip for about 12 months and I chose to just deal with the problem assuming I would eventually purchase something else. That time has now come. 1 year later the zipper has separated from the backpack and is unusable now. It really is a shame... I loved the layout of the backpack. Build quality is just awful.
