Pros: I have traveled with the bag twice. It holds quite a bit of gear (cloths, tuning tools and misc. items) in addition to skis, boots and poles, so it helps reduce the amount of luggage to check with the airline, thereby saving those annoying fees for a second bag and or boot bag. Plus, I have stuffed it full of gear for a week and still not exceeded the 50 lb weight limit that triggers another hefty charge by the airlines. (Be careful what you pack for additional gear, however, exceeding 50 lbs can be costly). Extra room in the boot compartments for misc. items like toiletries, etc. that cant get checked through in a carrying on is a big plus. The padding is good enough that nothing has been crushed as of yet.
Cons: Although the bag is billed as having the capacity to hold two pair of skis and boots, I can't see that being the case. I travel with 182cm boards and the positioning of the boot compartments make it a tight fit to close the bag with one pair of skis and no additional gear. I need wiggle room at the tip and tail of the bag to position the boots and skis properly so the bag closes. The boots tend to rest on the skis so a second pair of skis would most likely remove that wiggle room. Once you find the right positioning, lots of extra room.
It is also awkward to maneuver. When full, it is a loooong bag and doesn't corner easily. A shoulder strap would help, but this is pretty minor stuff.
Overall, it meets my needs, is one of the few bags I looked at that actually accommodates boots, and skis and is a solid value for the price.
