Pros: Everything I need for a week or two fits in there and I mean everything...well at least camera related equipment. I actually have the Computrekker AW PLUS which is practically the same thing just a little bigger. My bag has been with me all over the world, Europe, Canada, Alaska and I'm writing this right now in Hong Kong after a week and a half in Shanghai, China. The bag has never let me down, I just get overzealous with stuffing crap into the bag so it gets a big heavy. My Loadout for this current trip is; 1 x 1Ds Mark II 1 x 1v Hs 1 x 16-35L 1 x 70-200L IS 1 x 50mm 1.4 1 x 50 macro 1 x 100 macro 1 x 2X Doubler 1 x 580EX 1 x Sekonic 558R 1 x Gitzo Carbon Fiber Mountaineer II Filters, Cleaning Supplies 40 GB in CF Cards Like I said I get overzealous when packing my bag it's been heavy as hell but everything fits nicely in there and it's a Lowepro so I know my stuff will be taken care of inside. I also have my Apple 17" Powerbook in there and 3 batteries and AC Adapter. All in all the bag distributes the weight great even with a load out nearing 50Lbs+.
Cons:
The zippers get caught on themselves sometimes and I've had to send my other Computrekker AW PLUS in when the zippers ran off the teeth. Customer service was great though and got me a new bag within 48 hours. A little too big at times and the size encourages you to just keep stuffing it with crap.

Pros: Light as heck, Great Student Purchase Program, Beautiful and great construction, did I mention light as heck and the weight VS. load ratio isnt half bad either. The legs go in smoothly with the gas back system and prevents damaging the legs.
Cons:
None other than the center collum could have a sturdier feeling, but thats just me all my friends that own it don't have a problem with it.
