I bought the blue one. It looks even better in person. Light, durable, an more than enough room for anything you could take on the mountain. The Camelbak compatibility is great (although it doesn't come with a Camelbak). I also, recommend buying the thermal hose so your water doesn't freeze.
Haven't had a chance to use the horizontal or vert. board carry, but it's nice to know it's there. The only thing I would add are more internal pockets to help organize the vast interior space. The fleece goggle pocket is key.
Would recommend to any skier boarder regardless of ability.
