I received this product about a year ago. I originally had an Citizen bag that was too big most of the time to use. In-Came the KADET. I used and enjoyed it off and on a bike. I recently used it as a pack for a Snowboarding Trip. I understand that the pack would get wet for the trip. I don't Knock it there. After many spills and mishaps learning to snowboard it's just as good at the time before it took it to the slopes. That doesn't mean it didn't have problems beforehand. The front pocket zipper came undone at one of the corners and also I tore the Bag after a bike crash. I just thought it would hold up better to abuse. It was a new bag at that time of the crash but It didn't stop me from using it. One day I may upgrade this bag to a tarp KADET. Even though It may seem like Im upset or indifferent about this bag, I'm Still able to get the front zipper to close and the hole is small enough where nothing is falling out. If you are not equipment abuser like myself or just plainly take care of it, It will do you well.
