What were you doing to the bag? I've had mine for 18 months and no problems yet.
How are you fastening it to the rack? How full are you stuffing it? Where do you store it when not on the bike? Has it be around solvents?
If I was doing over, I wouldn't get it. Not because it was bad, but because I now want a seat bag system instead of a rack bag system.
A couple of times I really stuffed it, but didn't like the deformation of the bag. So I started putting fleece on the top instead of inside. Think about it, it's basically just material covered foam blocks. What is deforming those block? Probably either too much pressure from the inside, or too much pressure from the outside. Only other possibility I can think of is foam degradation. That may be caused by solvents or UV.
