great so far!
I use this as a bug out bag mostly. thankfully I haven't needed it for that but you never know. I keep the load in it light since the shoulder straps are not made for comfort or to carry a heavy load, not to say that is a defect, just saying I would never have over 15lbs in it. I keep mine at 5lbs not including water and its perfect! I have carried it on multiple day hikes just to put it through its paces and zero issues. i am very tempted to get one in the type III so I can use it for work. In my opinion its a solid bag!!
I want to like this bag...
I used this bag daily while stationed in South Korea, but unfortunately it did not last the full year I was there. As a previous reviewer said, the straps eventually give way. In my case, both straps eventually broke off from the main bag itself. I used it for various FTX events and it was perfect other than the delicate nature of the straps. I even took it to a tailor to have the straps resewn onto the frame which proved to be a temporary fix.
