I've had the 2008 version of this bag for a while but it got lost in transit. I just bought this one to replace it. The split design is nice, the whole bag seems nicely put together and when not expanded really is the absolute limit for carry on size. I've had enough snowboard gear in this bag for a full weekend, including boots.
Tip, get a color besides black. Everyone else has a black bag and you want to be different so you can spot your bag more easily.
Another tip, if you have to buy something online, you can't beat Backcountry so you're looking in the right place.
