This bag is a great size and reasonably durable. I tend to over pack them and between the weight, getting tossed and stacked in the van, and the heavy use they get I tend to need to replace them every few years, which is actually pretty good in my case. Occasionally, I will end up tearing one of the carry loops off the bag, again because I over stuff them sometimes and the loops can get caught on other things packed into the van as we load and unload. More care on our part might address that issue. At the end of the day, I recommend this bag. For the price and its durability you can't really go wrong.
