Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had the 2013 Heli Pack and it works very well
I've fallen many times on my back and this bag has not yet broke on me. I've placed a bladder in this bag and it fits almost anything up to 2L. The size is great for a spare shirts a small lunch and any other knick knacks you don't want in your pockets like your wallet and keys. This bag is fairly waterproof as I have not yet had any items get wet inside and I've boarded and fell through slush

Pros:
Slim enough that you won't feel it when boarding a lift or going down the mountain to throw off your balance
Large enough to fit a days trip worth of supplies (spare shirt, thin sweat pants, snacks, lunch, wallet, keys, gerbils, guinea pigs...you name it)
Fits your board (vertically)
Fits Skis (Diagonally)

Cons:
Friends realize you have room to spare and turn into their personal cooler to hold their drinks.
Strapping in the board to carry does take more time then I"d like

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Small device and so far has lasted me at approx 10 hours on one charge on my jogs. With the coming snowboard season coming up I predict it will last approx 4-5 hours only.
Sound at max level is a bit tinny but is not enough that it sounds horrible. The adapter is smaller then it looks and is rubberized so sweatproof and seems to be good in light rain and snow. So far has not had any issues with this product and highly recommended. Using this to turn my $25 skull candy drop ins to a nice pair of bluetooth speakers for my snowboard helmet. WIll upload a photo when I attach it.
Note for this regarding volume: For androids and assuming IOS make sure the BLUETOOTH volume on the device is set to max, After the actual device can go a bit louder when you raise the volume.

I would suggest not to get these if you have
1. Boots where the toes seems to be elevated
2. You have a large boot

....If you insist on this get the flow variety with the NASTY (Active Strap Technology) so you have more room to get in or else they just mis align and you won't be able to get in.

I had these in one run and was not able to just step in and out due to the toe straps and main strap going out of place.

Let me get this straight the bindings are great the LSR are great. However keep note of the boots you are using. If the boots have a raised front such as the Burton Motos I would not suggest this. I have the motos and The shoes do not slide in properly due to the toe cap and the boot not aligning properly. It was just my first run but I'm going to try them one more time. If they give me the same issues I will return to get the NX2-AT

Bag is great. Only complaint is the zipper. If you take the zippers and they are on the top while carrying on a board they tend to undo themselves....I solved this with a carbiner clip to hold them in place :) Havent tried the bladder option but it's big enough to hold a few drinks....spare shirts wallet and even a snack or two and still be compact. I use it to store my extra go pro mounts and home made handle.
