I received this backpack about a week ago and have been using it everyday since then as my work bag. I have been very happy with its construction, the size, and its many features.
The bag has heavy fabric and heavy duty zippers. It feels like it has very good construction and will stand up to long term use. All of the straps are held on with sturdy sewing. The bag also has great padding on the shoulder straps as well as on the back of the bag. The portion that contacts your back is rigid to prevent anything in the bag from poking you, but it also has a substantial amount of padding. The chest strap has ample adjustment depending on the size of your chest and has a nice elastic portion for even more comfort.
The size of the bag is very good for my needs. I have a 17.3" laptop that is also fairly thick and this bag holds it perfectly. There is not a dedicated laptop area however the main compartment does have a small separation pocket that the laptop...
Like most things in life, you get what you pay for.
I like this bag, First of all, its got a TON of storage options; mesh pockets, velco secure straps, zipper pockets, key clip and MOLLE straps to beat the band. I will be using this bag to keep my fishing gear/ tackle. I expect to use it a lot and treat it rather rough. There are 2 drainage grommets on the bottom of the main compartment, which will be getting a workout. I hope they don't rust from salt water. The zippers are not of the highest quality however the material seems strong and the shoulder straps are thickly padded and comfortable. There is plenty of room in the main compartment for all kinds of gear. I couldn't find the exact volume on the company website but I would say it's approx 40-45L. That is a big bag.
If you want superior quality and craftsmanship, go with Maxpedition. However be prepared to pay over $100 for a bag of similar size.
Lasted about a year - I travel for work weekly. This bag was used for computer projector and running shoes as a carry on. The grommet ripped out of the bottom that lead to hole in the bottom all of the water proofing has peeled out from the inside. I used it everyday for $50 I would say I got my money's worth next time I will probably spend a little more and get something less disposable.
