I have taken my Dakine Heli Pro out 3 times now and love it. It is big enough to fit all my gear, minus boots. The camel back is perfect with the hose running within the arm strap to keep it from freezing to the zipper that keeps it locked down and protected. The goggle pocket is a good addition, however I find myself using it more for my cell, ipod, and sunglasses since my goggles are usually on my head. Another benefit is the water bottle pocket that zippers closed when not in use, yet is big enough for a Nalgine bottle. My only complaints are that there are 2 main pockets with no organizational pouches to put a pen, pad, cell, keys or anything small that you dont want bouncing around.
