I say go for it. I have put mine through two years of commercial guiding, not to mention two boats flipped for a total hour. I have had no problems with my bag and more importantly no leaks for two years.
We have one, and it is tough and we like it a lot. We use it for kitchen stuff, very heavy. the only issue is it really needs to be full to stay closed. And I can't say we've tested it's dry-ness. Trash compactor bags inside are always a good idea if you are stowing critical gear, sleeping bag, clothes, etc.
