Time will tell.
*First Impression review* Soon to leave on a 3 month climbing/fishing/ camping trip where the pack will be thrown in and out of a truck almost daily. Duffel will be holding all clothes/hygiene/ miscellaneous. Looks tough, packs well. I like the square construction as opposed to the typical rounded duffel; this allows you to overstuff generously and the zippers seem tough enough to deal with it. I packed three pillows in it and took it outside to test water resistance. Sprayed from all sides with a hose for 5 seconds each and let sit. Unzipped a few minutes later and definitely a lot of wet through. This material appears like a vinyl, waterproof fabric but it allows water to absorb quite readily. The video is a bit misleading spraying it down with a garden hose and expecting it to stay dry. In some reviews people were using this as car top luggage and for expeditions in the elements( I.e pack trips, float trips). I'd strongly suggest looking at dry bags instead of this. Otherwise, it looks like some durable travel luggage that will function well but.... time will tell!
