I love mine. I don't carry a ton of weight in it, but it works out really well for me and I carry it all the time. I could see if you wanted to carry quite a bit of weight how it would be a PITA for extended trips (10+ mile treks) but It isn't really designed for that. The weigh constantly shifting, uneven load, etc would get old REAL fast. Guard duty bag, weekend bag, range bag, daily tool bag, etc etc it is awesome. BOB would suck, use as anything over a 48 hour bag would also suck.
