I bought a 3 Day pass 9 years ago and finally needed a replacement. Let that tell you how durable this bag is! I decided to upgrade to the Elite version and I have been extremely pleased! The 1000D Cordura is insanely strong and I'm glad this bag is still made with the material. The shoulder straps are very comfortable and the metal back inserts make for an easier hike while carrying all my gear. I am a big fan of the 3 removable pouches and all the extra MOLLE webbing has come in handy. Being able to customize my items and use a pouch a dedicated med pouch has been very nice. After going across rocks, sand, sticks, and every other rough surface this bag still performs flawlessly! It doesn't matter if this bag is used for work, hiking/camping, military, etc. this bag will take a beating and ask for more! Great product! Definitely will be buying more.
