Has not held up well. We got this backpack for our 15 year old son to use hauling his books, etc. in high school. It has carried a pretty heavy load every day for the past five months, but it hasn't been abused. Recently, the material has worn and ripped in several locations and now at least two zippers have started failing. Given the reputation of the brand and the price compared to much of the competition here on Amazon, I expected better durability than this. We'll try to make it to the end of the school year with this one, then start the hunt for a better brand (again).
