I bought this as a gift for a friend who works in Wildland Fires. He used it to hold all his fire gear and took it with him on all the fires. The bag has stood up to a lot of abuse and is still in excellent condition. The shoulder straps are great for carrying such a large bag. The daisy chains on the outside were useful for attaching items he needed handy. He absolutely loves this bag and got a lot of his Wildland buddies to purchase one as well.
