Looks solid but belt is wanting
The overall pack material is tough and the pack is surprisingly light for it's size. Adjustments are real easy and the fit is good. However the belt does not seem to match the capacity. I loaded my pack and tested it on a local hike for 4 miles. I had a little over 45 lbs on my back. The pack felt relatively comfortable but beyond that may be pushing it. The side pockets are small too. I wish the belt was wider to help transfer and carry more weight.
