Ive had this pack for three years now and its durbility cotinues to impress me. When I first purchased this pack, I was looking for a school bag that would last me about a year until i could buy a nicer one. It didnt look bad so i decided to pick it up. Now after years of abuse, Im sitting down and recomending it. The varial backack single handedly changed my perpectve of Dakine. Its uncomprimising build quality and suprisingly good duraility has withstood countless days at school and multiple trips to the mountains. Even though this pack may not look as striking as some of Dakines's other packs, it holds its own against many other more expensive options.
Over all this backpack is a fantastic choice for the price, and I strongly recomend it.
