Every now and then, I make a bigger trip and out the good old Quechua backpack comes. And I’m still happy with it!

I’ve been dragging this pack around the world for about 5 years now and it doesn’t show any signs of wear and tear yet. Well worth the money for me. I will use it a couple years more, hopefully.
