Well made like all Arc'teryx stuff. I have 2 of their jackets and they are the bomb. But this back pack was a little disappointing because of size/function. The construction was awesome as usual. The reason I returned it is because of the compartment access. The two main compartments were big enough, but the zippers did not go far enough around to really open up the compartments. I could not get files in and out of the compartments well and for my use, this was unacceptable.
It may be great for some people who don't need wide access to the compartments but for me I will have to stick to a messenger type bag.
