For the price, this one looks really good, it has good specs, hopefully the quality will be decent. This will be my 46th vacuum and 8th backpack, I will post a review when I get it.

Some of the floor tools look cheap nylon bristles. Can't wait to hear your quite the specs!

looking forward to trying it

I have plenty of attachments here if the ones that are included are not very good, definitely looking forward to trying it. I'm a big fan of all canister cleaners whether it's a central vacuum, backpack, or just the pull behind type. I much prefer these over uprights, uprights just don't appeal to me at all, personal preference of course.

Interesting vacuum-BUT the collaspeable wand won't hold up under commercial use along with the turbo hand tool.

Oh yes-for allergy folks the open top bags would not be good.There has to be closed top bags for this-would be better for allergies.

turbo brush and bags

I have no plans on using the turbo brush, electric brushes are always better. I already have an electric hose that will fit a backpack vacuum, and it has a Y adapter that both the electric hose and extension cord connect to. Most backpacks use the open bags, I would think this would provide better airflow than a closed bag. My powr-flite backpack is the only one that has closed bags. That's another very nice backpack except for one design flaw. Rather than having a pig tail cord the way most other backpacks do, the 50 foot cord is hard wired to the machine, I have no idea what they were thinking when they decided to do that, but it's a bad idea. Fortunately it was easily fixed, cut off most of the cord and attach an industrial plug to what is left, then use the cut off cord to build a good quality extension cord, problem solved. I already have plenty of attachments and wands so not too worried about that. Interestingly, several of the backpacks I have such as the proteam super coach, and sanitaire 535 came with paper bags, first thing I did was to replace those with cloth bags. I guess backpacks are mostly associated with commercial use but they work quite well for apartment cleaning as well. The backpack is also one series of vacuums where the hoses are mostly interchangeable, they all take the same size hose rather than requiring a particular hose the way most canisters do. Perhaps this is because they are used in commercial environments and this allows parts to be replaced faster. The other vacuums where hoses are mostly interchangeable are wet dry vacs and central vacuums. I have a 25 foot extension cord that I use with my backpacks and it covers the entire apartment easily.

Well, should have got my new backpack yesterday but according to UPS, it's delayed, will hopefully get it next week and then I will post the review. It's no fun waiting for a new vacuum, lol.
