Good capacity, not so good design
I bought this as a backpack for school and have taken it on some outdoor trips and it's never let me down as far as toughness and gear capacity. The only problem is when it's loaded up with more than 3 books the weight distribution is so bad it digs into your shoulder and sags in that direction so as to twist your whole back around. For the price it's just not worth it. I always say I'll never buy another bag with just one strap. If you're considering this purchase, spend the extra 20 bucks and get the 3 day assault pack.
