I bought this a few years ago but haven't found myself using it much. I bought it used for $95 so it is in great, broken-in condition. No stains, rips or otherwise. Comes from pet free, smoke free home. It is 14 feet long which I have found to be the perfect length. I'm 5'6 and weigh about 150. I haven't done much back wearing with it though so check out their website for advice on sizing.
