I can't give it 5 stars yet because I have not tested its durability, but it seems to be very high quality. This pack is huge, but somehow I have it stuffed to the brim with only 45lbs of weight total with food and no water. This thing looks ridiculously huge and I cant figure out how I filled it up. I've gone through it multiple times trying to reduce load, different packing methods, etc. It remains stuffed to the max no matter what I do. I was very surprised with that. But I suppose the age old rule applies, If you have the space you will fill it, haha. Anyways, It is very comfy to hike in, load doesn't shift, and I don't look like a junk show anymore with gear hanging everywhere on the outside of my pack. I like it!

This is lightweight and sets up very fast! Everything looks sturdy and well made. I have only had it out in a light drizzle, but so far its dry inside. Vestibule is tiny, but that's fine with me as I store my pack inside the tent. 2 people can fit, but without gear in the tent. I got it for just me anyways. Overall, I like this tent a lot so far!

Sorry, maybe this was in the wrong section. Also, I dont use bladders because they always fail. I only use bottles on the trail. I have a dromedary for base camp, though, that i hang from a tree. But I dont use it in a pack because smashing and squeezing them causes failure. Bladders are just unreliable in a survival situation.
