It is a bit hard to use the zippers. You have to use a bit more force than regular zippers but that is understandable because it is weather resistant. I haven't forced the zippers as I have been careful with them. They are asking me to rate the durability of the pack. That is still up in the air. It seems to be durable but I have only used it for a month. It is a nice pack.

Works good looks good. Just wish it was easier to zip up the main compartment. I know it is to help keep out the water but difficult at times. All and all I like it and have been using it everyday for my work commute.
This backpack is great for traveling around town or commuting to work or school. I wouldn't recommend this backpack if you are looking for one to take with you on long road trips simply because it's not big enough to carry extra clothes and all of the other items you might want to take along. This backpack is very comfortable and very durable, I've had it for a few weeks now and it's seen hot weather, rainy weather as well as high winds and the zippers keep a secure hold and keep water out. The only place that has gotten wet inside are the two side pockets that have mesh. Overall this is a great bag!
Bought this backpack for my trip to daytona beach bike week and it worked great .Also two of my other friends who took the trip also purchased this backpack and was also satisfied with it.
I used the back pack in a storm and all my stuff kept dry, except the lateral pocket that have a mesh. The waterproof zippers work great. A lot of pockets inside. very comfortable.
Great pack! lots and lots of room, so many pockets and pouches could easily forget where you put something, padded back, adjustable sternum and waist straps make it comfortable even when you have a heavy load. haven't had it in the rain yet, but zippers are all sealed well.
This backpack is perfect! Good size, plenty of organizational pockets, comfortable, and extremely well made! Clean looks too! For a backpack like this, the price is even a steal!
