Everyone's seems to be going on about how waterproof this pack is but what about its durability? I want know if i can through is pack around. Get it dirty, have it brush past jagged rocks and all that kind of stuff. If i take it out for a 10 day hike and have all 4 seasons in the 10 days will the pack last a long time all up with its waterproofness still at 100%. How much does it leak through that giant side zip? if my canoe capsizes and my pack falls out and is fully submerged will it leak then.
I know this is 100 questions but i am camp leader from Australia taking school groups out 1 week at a time almost year round except for school holidays. There's no doubt i have fallen in love with this pack and reading the reviews looks great as well, it's just a lot of money, however i love owning top quality gear. Just want to make sure that this pack really is the bees knees
