G NC wrote a question about Arc'teryx Axios Backpack 50 - Men's - 3051-3661cu in on October 25, 2011
I was wondering how this pack's materials stack up to it's size and price-point competitors? Ive seen one briefly in person and thought the material was thinner/slicker than expected, but recently saw an Altra, which I think is made out of the same stuff (on the body of the pack) as the Axios. I've noticed the ripstop they use is a higher denier than anything on most of the competitors, but to my knowledge they also use no cordura. So... how durable are these things, exactly?
