Re: Problem/Issues experienced with backpacks and duffle bags carried along
ZIPS ! Whatever material they make the zips from on stack packs PLEASE use the same on the back packs.
Stack pack is 7 years old and the zip is fine. I also have a cheap Euro back pack that is 20 years old with good zips. I have just discarded a 2 year old expensive Victorinox back pack with zip failure due to corrosion. This despite frequent lubrication.
I LIKE having lots of compartments esp one that holds the lappie for shore trips.
