Did the adult backpack hold the entire trip? The recent ones they gave away the past two years tear by the end of the trip, we end up throwing them away before leaving the area.

I was told by one of the folks at ABD that they redesigned the backpack for this year to be more durable. They are aware of the quality issue. Hopefully it was a good redesign.

Not a tear in my backpack or any in our family. I used it every day there wasn't a flight. Seemed very durable. I think the only weakness on it would be the zippers but they didn't fail on me...although they could be smoother zippers, if you know what I mean.

All in all, I was quite pleased with the backpack. It was functional, light, nice looking and didn't fall apart. :D I managed to put the insert to my camera bag/knapsack into the ABD backpack so I could have a place to put my camera and camcorder while on our outings. (My camera bag/knapsack is heavy and this was a lighter alternative). This meant I didn't have to bring a secondary camera bag. This was bonus for me.

(Ours is a 2012 model)

Make that the last 3 years. I didn't like the shiny blue one last year, so I didn't use it. But my 2009 backpack was coming apart at the seams before the trip was over. I purchased a smaller backpack at REI that I've been using for over a year and it is holding up well. I carry it on trips and lately I've started putting a smaller purse in it and carrying it to work with me everyday.

The backpacks we got in 2010 are still being used. We used them daily on our ABD. We also use them for any weekend getaways, our cruise last summer, and two trips to WDW. We love them and have had no problems at all.

Enjoying looking at the swag. Our first Adventure (BSM) is in a little less than 10 weeks.
