Its reputation among my old unit and I tend to beat the daylights of my gear. Gentle isn't in my vocab much, if it cant survive being dropped, thrown, stepped on, kicked, sat on, etc...

So its heavy, but it survived humping a 60mm mortar system up a mountain in Afghanistan with no damage and made it easier for my team member who was telling me the story.
