Here is my one week review.
first off, the Eric Pollard graphics are sickening. -completely off the chain.
it is kind of small, but it is big enough for most off season uses i.e. laptop, change of clothes, skate helmet
definitely light enough for summer hiking.
It was TONS of straps and carabiner-ready loops.
I can easily strap a skate board or pair of aggressive inline skates
It has a "goggle pouch" lined with optical clothe, perfect for-you guessed it- goggles or sunglasses.
on the left shoulder strap there is some kind of sleeve, im guessing for a probe?
exactly how you strap skis in two different ways, i still have to figure out.
the "shovel blade sleeve" can be used for almost anything.
It is pretty much completely waterproof too-i tested it in the kitchen sink.
Overall, I think it was worth the money paid, and I would reccomend it to any one who wants a medium sized daypack for summer, winter and everything in between.
