I have had it for a little over a month so I can not say if it will hold up for the long haul (3 + years). The size to me is perfect as well as the weight. It's just big enough and just small enough (6 foot tall 178lbs) and looks great. I don't know if the buckle clasps will hold over the long haul but everything about this product seems solid for the most part. It holds all the necessary things I carry day-to-day like my iPhone 11, keys, and magpul wallet with room to spare. The color is great as well! I use this nut ruck 5-6 days a week and it goes through the normal wear and tear, nothing crazy. Simply put pick it up. It is versatile!
