I have had mine for a few years now. I don't have any complaints either. I packed an entire mule deer out three miles with it and never had any issues with it. I did had to add more straps to help secure the load, but the blaze cover that comes with it works pretty well. I would recommend adding more straps though. It seemed to help a lot. I couldn't afford one of the super expensive packs either, so I did some research and bought this one... can't complain. I don't think you will be unhappy for a pack like this for the price.
