Few things irritate me more than buying new footwear (which happened two weeks ago). Buying a new pack is one of them.
My last pack failed in The Zipper Zone and instantly became worthless. I kludged it, knowing it'd last a month at the outside, with more zipper tweeks along the way. Don't need the hassle and I certainly don't need to be leaking gear (think, power-charging stuff and cables) which I already do with a perfectly functioning pack, So...off to get a new one.
