These cubes are great! Right up until they fall apart.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Misti from Colorado on Monday, September 7, 2015
I have owned MANY of these cubes over the years--all from STP. Admittedly, I abuse them. I stuff them full of heavy stuff and carry them around.
I leave them in my car all year round so subject them to intense temperature variations. I use them as drop bags for ultramarathons, and who knows what abuse they are subject to when I am not around to protect them. So I am not really surprised when the seams start to rip--and rip they do. They are reparable, sometimes. But sometimes the seams are so blown that they require rebuilding rather than repair. At that point, I replace them. And at STPs prices, especially with a good coupon, I don't mind replacing one or two every few (or every many) years. I suspect that the ones that end up at STP are "seconds" or have some sort of manufacturing flaw to start with because I have never had durability issues with any other Mountainsmith gear. I only gave them 3 stars because they do wear out so readily. But in terms of functionality and versatility, I would give them at least 4 stars. If they were waterproof? 5 stars without hesitation.
