I bought this pack in 2001 for my first trip to Panama. We were going to be working in extremely wet and rainy conditions, and I wanted to have my electronics protected. I did great even when it sat in mud. In 2003, while working in the rainforests in Nicaragua, our canoe flipped coming down some rapids. I found the pack about a mile downstream, with all the contents dry.
Is supposed to be a day pack, but I've crammed stuff in there for 3-4 days. I also have an RT45 which I bought in 2003, equally excellent.
In 2005, also working in the rainforest of Nicaragua, a 55 gal drum barrel dropped on the belt buckle, braking it into a dozen pieces. I e-mailed Arc'teryx, and within a couple of weeks they had sent me a new buckle. Over the years I've had about ten day packs, some have lasted less than a year. I have to give Arc'teryx the highest marks for a quality product that works on a wide range of conditions.
