I ordered the RIG 710 in the last product offering, and it seems like it's well made. There is one thing though that I found troubling. My pack is marked with a black X on the inside, and after a quick examination I found that one of the internal zippers was stitched in backwards, causing the pack to fail a quality control inspection. Because I'm saving money and it's a relatively minor issue I don't ultimately care, but if DROP is sending factory seconds or refurbs and not being transparent about it, it makes me second guess the ethics of this service. Buyer beware.
