Last year we had 2 Mariposa backpacks along for the trip to Havasu. My son recommended your product to me. Have had it since. My same Mariposa has made it to Havasu 4 times now. It has 100+ miles on it…closer to 200. No sign of wearing out or ripping. A great pack for the 5 day trips I normally do. I have also done a portion of the PCT in the Ansel Adams Wilderness…solo. (Can’t always find hiking companions up for some of my treks) Next year we are looking at the Grand Tetons area.
