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

The pack is very high quality, fits well, and is very comfortable to ski and snowboard with. The pack has several different straps on it that are great for holding down what ever load you are carrying. The contents will not move while riding and the waist and chest buckle prevent the bag from moving on your back.

I have used this pack to go back country snowboarding and it carries that weight of the board very well. The pack can easily carry anything you may need for any day trip you take. The pack has a low profile making it very easy to ride lifts are any resort.

There is a hydration sleeve that is accessible through the back opening however the largest hydration system that it can hold it 70oz. I have a 100oz system and was disappointed to find that it does not fit in the sleeve. I have an insulated hydration cover that makes it possible to have the 100oz system without the hydration pack sink into the bag. There is a zipper on the right shoulder strap that allows the hydration mouth piece to be easily accessed.

This hydration system is awesome. I have used this while snowboarding and skiing as well as on hikes in both the winter and the fall. The quality of the hydration bladder and the insulated covering are a very high quality. The insulated covering gets the job done does not let and water freeze.

When the hydration pack is full it does add a decent amount of weight but when it is used with a quality backpack the weight isn't noticed. The rubber cover of the mouth piece is larger and I could not fit it through the shoulder strap of my backpack easily. To do so I had to detach the hose and feed it into the pack and the reattach it.

All things considered this is a great product and would recommend it to anyone.

I have used this helmet several times skiing this year and has not let me down yet. The removable knit liner is very warm, I had to remove it when the temp was about 30 because it was getting to hot. I am an advanced skier and this helmets adds that extra protection needed one the dangerous slopes and on the back-country trails. I would recommend this helmet to everyone.

Other thoughts
There are several places to mount a camera to this helmet. I have a GoPro2 and this helmet carries the weight well and doesn't move around while skiing.

The vent holes at the top of the helmet (great for summer use and bike riding) prevent any logos to go on that area limiting the amount of signage on the helmet. However I did manage to find room for my backcountry sticker :).
