I have never had any problems with damage to my bag by airlines. I have had it rainsoaked before. It was raining heavily and I had a layover. I believe the bag sat on the tarmac for several minutes in a puddle of water. The bag did get very wet on the side which sat in water. I let it dry out and it seemed unaffected. To help keep down the possibility of damage, I tighten up the backpack type straps so they are less likely to get snagged on something. I also try not to load too much weight in the bag when using it for clothing.
