Pros: For me, the bag is the perfect size (except for the waist strap) for all the gear that I have and am likely to have. plenty of pockets, and good straps. I like all the side pockets and the mutliple attachment points. Very well designed
Cons:
The padding and the grade of Nylon that was used to create the bag are repreatative of the price--low-cost. The padding is substandard compared with just about all other bags I've owned or used. The nylon seems strong but I'd be affraid that the weather proofing they put on would come over easily and the bag would just take on huge amounts of water--you can tell this by the material's level of fexibility. Also, the cross-chest harness is held in place by two loops, they don't actually stay in place when you take the pack on or off--something you'll do often. Also, the waist harness (like most bags of this site) comes accross my stomac, not my waiste. Finally the the main compartment zipper has a covering flap that points back towards my bag instead of the other direction (like all other bags). This means that when the sholder straps are loosened up a bit the bag leans back allowing rain to accumulate on the zipper which easily makes it's way into the bag. not the best idea. The bag is nice, I just wished they went a few extra steps (i would have paid for that). As a result I'm returning my bag and going for the LowePro Minni Trekker AW.

the pos/cons pretty much say it all.
