The new 05/06 version seems significantly more durable than previous years' models (identified by the blue colored G-35 fabric) with the new G-70 fabric. Pre-2005 models drew a lot of criticism for being somewhat fragile. I wouldn't make a habit of scraping this pack against rocks or sliding through slot canyons, but for normal "trail" use, mine has held up just fine. The suspension is pretty maxed at 30 lbs, so heed the design features (and mfg guidelines) and keep it at 25 lbs or less and it'll work fine.
