    Yep................

    That looks just like the one I've had except mine was dk blue and khaki. Maybe this one is an update. The only problem I had was with the two large buckles coming undone, even with no pressure on them.

    This is one reason why we prefer the all cloth not stiff versions

    Failure was one reason why we stuck with making our own from cordura with nylon grommet holes.
    However we have been looking at roller duffels and found some good dive bags at the local salvage places of all places.

    think if you have 2 bags one to dry and store while the other is in use rotating would help prolong the life.

    If you got a bunch of cheap gear, than its ok to use a cheat bag.

    Cute advice, but I'm not so sure. The cheap bags are so cheap that they often fail in less than one trip. I had one of those bags, zipper ripped out on the first use.

    What I should have said is "you get what you pay for". I find almost everytime I try to save a buck, it ends up costing me more. First you try the cheap one, than you have to replace it with what you should have bought in the first place.
