not as good as it looks

i bought the 38 centaur backcpack, its the same, just a little bit bigger.
i m from argentina and was going on a climbing trip to the US. i bought this pack with the porpouse of using it all the way through the trip.
at first it seemed like a great pack, very technical, very comfortable, excellent pack in all.
but after the first use, of only a day multi-pitch climbing route, it showed a lot of wear from the climb. the funny thing is that i tried to protect the pack form the edges and the wall; if the materias were a bit thougher i think i would buy it with my eyes closed.
in the middel of my trip o returned the pack and got a refund for two resos:
first i had a backpack that probably would not get to the end of the climbing trip
second, if it did get to the end, here in argentina when i go climb in patagonia it would last a single climb
