I was given one of these many Christmas's ago and have been using it on a regular basis for the past 7 years. It has held up to a lot of Berkeley Hill hikes as well as all over the coastal trails and hikes around Montara, Half Moon Bay, Moss Beach, and now Lake Berryessa, the gold country, all up in the Sacramento area. I regualarly take cheese, bread, veggies, wine, water, endless yummy munchies. My daughter returns from her studies in Japan and takes it for a strenuous work out.. Burning Man and the like. Yeah.. we've sewn a few stiches to face lift her but she's a lasting. Impressive!
I purchased this for my daughter so she can use it for work. She has long work days and she can really pack it full with everything she needs. The separate compartments is very useful for keeping paper items and her diabetes meter dry. I can see this being a great purchase for a larger lunch bag, or for hiking and picnicking.
The backpack is very nice but I would have liked had it been just a tad larger and the straps been placed in a more comfortable place. Not for hard core hikers but great for a quick, romantic short mile jaunt to a scenic lunch spot. My son and his wife will like it.
