I like a simple top loading pack for hauling gear around but this one is far too fragile, the glue on several vital seams is undoing and the main fabric of the pack has small holes after just 10 days heavy use. I really don't know why it has a three way haul system cause this pack would rip open if you tried to haul it anywhere near a rock face. Its simplicity is great but it means with the thin fabric the pack does not fill evenly and must be packed very precisely to avoid weird bulges and an even shape. I haven't tried yet but this pack will struggle with a trad rack in it. I would definately return mine if I wasn't in south America for the next few months, maybe if find a stable address I'll give the returns a shot but it's too hard from here. I normally love bd gear but sadly this one has totally missed the mark.
