Pros: Well thought out rolling details, excellent accessibility both upright and flat, durable construction
Cons: Lower volume than a 7-day bag, takes up a fair bit of room when empty.
This bag is an absolute breeze to roll. Why don't all duffel bags roll this easily? Why do other duffel bags require full hand strength to keep on course exiting an airport? Why do they fall over 15 seconds after you tilt them on end when waiting in line? Why do other duffel bags have zippers that have to strain against the full weight of the load just to keep the bag shut?
If you wanted a bag that doesn't tip and sway at each direction change, that sits up and stays when put, that hasn't got its entire reason for existing dependent upon the durability of one load-bearing zipper, then this might be the bag for you.
If you already carry your ski boots as carry on luggage, that is. This bag is *small* for a 5 day trip, and the "boot" compartments take over most of the interior volume. The 5-day estimate is really being generous, and assumes the traveler is clever and talented at packing.
