Hydration pack freezes, "goggle" pocket too small

Pros: Looks cool (I got the blue one) and I get a lot of compliments on it because it looks cool.
My 16" laptop fits in it, but I don't take that skiing with me
Good size bag if you don't want something bulky.
Easy to carry skis, poles, and boards. Comfortable to wear.

Cons: I mainly got this bag so I would have water while skiing. The Hydration tube froze within 2 hours at Stratton in February. I started skiing around 9:30 and it was frozen before noon. It was sunny and in the mid 20s on that day. I kept it zipped in the strap the whole time.

The goggle pocket won't fit any of my goggles. It's too small for Oakley A frames, Crowbars, in addition to my smaller Spys and Dragons.

The inside mesh pocket interferes with the "goggle" pocket. If you have things in both of the pockets, it looks bulky and affects what you can fit in the main compartment. I also wouldn't recommend putting your goggles in the goggle pocket (if you can fit them in) if you're carrying skis, since the skis will damage the goggles, and you also can't have much in those pockets if you are carrying skis.

The side pockets on the belt unzip very easily so I haven't been able to use them for anything. The video advertises these pockets as camera pockets...wouldn't recommend that.
