I did my 5 year renewal in 2010 so maybe the backpacks are different now. IIRC, the one I got was red and blue but that doesn't mean its the same one they're giving out now. I would certainly hope not as the one I got was very flimsy. I donated it to our club to be used as a door prize and I've never seen the person who won it use it at all. In fact, I know other people who've gotten them for renewing their USTA memberships and never seen anyone actually use them.
