Honest Review

from the lack of multiple preview images and detailed product description, it appears to be exactly the same as the Nike "RPM" backpack. not quite though. even though it is advertised as being bigger (although, i question the legitimacy of the measurements for the 26L of the Nike Vs. the 31.5L of the Marana based on the overall matching designs...), it falls short in a few areas.

the is no preview of the back, because unlike the Nike RPM, it doesn't have any venting mesh. just plain Nylon like the rest of the bag. the laptop compartment padding does give the back padding, though. also, the carry handle is a single unreinforced 1-inch nylon strap loop that is folded in the middle to a strange feeling half inch wide handle. shoulder straps seem ok, there is reinforcement on the bottom of straps, but no real reinforcing at the top and no load straps. saying this though, it does have the same deep cell phone/glasses pocket that is made with a non-scratchy soft material by the handle. which is nice. inner pockets and side pockets are all the exact same. center Molle row isn't sown for some reason either.

biggest wear and tear issues that i noticed right away, without even needing to use the bag, were on the bottom. it's almost a sin to not have a rubberized bottom. which this doesn't. not only that, but the material actually feels a bit thinner than the upper when pinched and rolled around between my fingers. this will probably wear out before the rest of the bag... the bottom tension/bedroll straps are also less than 1-inch unreinforced straps.

in conclusion: i'm not super impressed out of the box. i'm replacing a 20yo Dakine "Park Pack". it was $75 at the time and, even though Dakine sucks now, its build quality was far superior to most stuff manufactured these days. Cordura makes a HUGE difference... one could do a lot worse for $120, though, especially these days... just kind of disappointing, because it should be an amazing modular backpack base, that is perfect for city skating as is, but could be converted into a great 72h camping backpack with a few add-on Molle bags. then it just falls short...
