I don't see the 5 years being a worry at all. I hardly think the bags are engineered to fall apart after 5 years and a day, and if it magically did, I don't think Voodoo is the type of company that would let it go just because "the warranty expired." My Karma is about a year and a half old and shows no signs of wear at all. I play at least 2x a week, sometimes in the rain. No color fade, no loose stitches. I take care of the things I purchase (especially higher dollar purchases) and anticipate my Karma lasting well beyond it's 10 year warranty. I don't doubt their backpack will outlast it's 5 year warranty by a good margin.
