Like many of Tamrac's bag, this one seems plenty capable when it comes to surviving a beating. Like I said before, it's not specifically an "outdoors" bag, but I sure took it outside and covered it in mud. The reinforced bottom is sturdy and sheds dirt nicely. The material itself is extremely water-resistant (I didn't feel the need to bust out the rain cover even though it rained steadily one day) and didn't get pulls or scuffs despite being dragged against rocks and trees. I did have a very hard time getting the mud off of it, though. In fact, even after I've cleaned it pretty thoroughly, it's still obvious that it used to be dirty.
