Pros: padding, fit, ease
Cons: It's small but that is why I bought it.
If your looking for a lightweight pack that also has excellent padding it it, this is it. this pack fits great, holds all my junk, easy to open, ski's attach super easy. It's not big enough to hold my ski boots, but I knew that when I bought it. I use it at resorts and will use it in the backcountry overnight trips as a day pack, (it attaches to my overnight pack), I really can't say enough about the padding and how you can't tell its there, nor can anyone else.
