I bought this backpack about two months ago. It came with the free coffee I requested and it was great. I brought it camping one day with a lot of stuff in it. It did not rip. I went canoeing with it and my canoe capsized. I had my backpack on with all of my stuff in it and it stayed water proof. I was very surprised by the quality of this product. MLC is the best and i would buy from them again.
