Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
A year ago I wanted one bag that I could put my school items in every weekday and my climb/snowboard/hike/bike stuff in every weekend, and not break a zipper every two months. In the Dakine Blade, I finally have solace knowing my things are secure and organized. I use this bag literally every day, and every day it zips open and close cleanly, with tensioning straps to keep everything tight and well fitted to my body. The 38L capacity is well separated to store large insulated jackets (I think I've fit as many as 4), with smaller pockets for tools, snacks, or anything else.
