"I...am the proud owner of a very old, over-utilized Tough Traveler back pack. After 30 years the fabric, every single seam, and all the zippers are intact. The backpack has been through a lot of wear and tear, yet it functions like a brand new pack. I am amazed at the durability of the product. I have replaced my son's department store back pack 4 times since he entered elementary school 6 years ago. I'm done with cheapies that are practically disposable. He's getting a Tough Traveler." -- Diana Straut Voorheesville NY
Do you want an added water bottle pocket or a cell pocket on your pack? We are a factory, and generally can put one - or both - on! The charge for each is $15. Let us know at service@toughtraveler.com or note when placing your order.

"I received my Super Padre size Small yesterday, and after trying on over 50 packs at several store, THIS ONE fits!!! I can't believe it; I expected to say yet another 'Oh well...'. I carried some weight around in it today, and didn't even want to take it off! And when I did it was with great fondness that I set it down. I haven't worn a pack for 30 years.... I am so pleased to once again be able to use one..... I love it and thank you so much for your concern for the health of those of us who wear these things!!!" Kathleen DeCelle
