This backpack is okay if you are not going to expose it to harsh conditions or doing lots of outdoor. For that price you indeed get what you pay for. I would seriously encourage to spend a bit more money and then you'll get a backpack which you can intensively use at multiple climatic conditions without wearing off that much the parts of it. I find this one has a perfect size to do some easy trekking, traveling lightweight (without much rain). It is a pity this one does not include a rain cover, and the quality of the zipper is low-average (I get the impression it would not endure intense use for long before breaking open) and as the zipper area have no cover, under rainy conditions it lets some water get thru. Also very easy that someone gets on it while wearing it as zippers are quite visible and possible to be open in both directions.
