    Orion backpack is awesome. I had the Orion and Vindicator. The latter is OK, but the M18xR2 Orion is not only able to haul a ton of stuff, it is extremely well made. Vindicator isn't horrible, but it is not TSA friendly (a really bad deal for me) and not as well built.

    When did you purchase the Orion? Dell might've cheaped out halfway through production and made the bags less reliable (see amazon).

    Might explain why yours held up better than the review units posted around 2015 by amazon customers.

    The Orion is a little shorter and wider. The vindicator is slim and tall. I like both. The Orion is TSA like others mentioned. I like both.

    I think they are made by the same company and I believe both carry a lifetime warranty on workmanship/defects.
