This is the downfall of this pack. I've used it for many expeditions and have learned that I have to "baby" it sometimes. Specifically if I am in a situation where I have to lower the pack or haul it up some 4th/5th class I need to be careful of abrasion damage. The outside pocket zipper on my pack is a bit beat up (still works, but now leaks) and the pocket that the stays go in has worn through so that one of the stays now pokes out. For normal use it's durable, but as I said, be careful of dragging it over rocks.

Value:43211

Arc-teryx gear in general is expensive and this pack was no exception. But to me it's well worth the cost. Not the highest gear value of pack on the market, but pretty good.

Super comfortable. Awesome cushy yet firm waist belt. Outside pocket is super convenient. Plenty of room. One of the best expedition sized packs I've ever used, rivaled only by the Dana Designs Astroplane.

Review:Despite some durability issues and a hefty price tag, this pack still gets a 5/5 from me. I've carried it for hundreds of miles and its been super comfortable and dependable. Highly recommended if you need a pack for multi week expeditions.
