Cons:

I got this bag as a Christmas present and it's been great. Its slim enough to stay out of the way snowboarding and padded enough that most falls won't mean death to your lense collection. The should straps are also well padded so you could carry this bag all day without any discomfort. So for its intended purpose it works well but I doubt you could fit all the gear you needed for a backcountry ski trip in along with your camera gear. There are plenty of small pockets for random things though so many be you could make it happen if you got creative.

In day to day use its great. People don't expect you to have a camera in it which in my opinion is even better security than the back only access. People ask me if I modified the bag myself. The down side to that has been that on occasion when I've foolishly left the bag laying around people have tossed it aside like a book bag which is always a scary thing to see out of the corner of your eye.

Overall, I've been very happy with this bag.
