Not bad for the priceI have had this pack for a couple months now. I have not had any major failures. One of the zipper pulls came off on the bottom. This is not an Osprey or other high-end packs and is comparable with other "made in China" packs of the same price range. I did not use the hydration bladder, as it leaked at the tube stem when compressed. It's not terribly heavy and is fairly comfortable over long miles. If you are hiking on a budget, it will do the job. Bring a needle and some dental floss just in case, since the stitching seems a bit sketchy. I've had 35lbs in it with food and water and it held up. So good so far.

Unimpressed with the gearI have purchased countless Magellan brand products, and never fails, something always breaks or tears with first use.
