I love the new Heli Pro but the belt tends to get annoying when just using the bag for school. I'm still waiting for the snow fall to go test it out for its sole purpose. HURRY UP SNOW!!! Still, it holds a lot of books and is comfortable at the same time. It has tons of straps and features. I don't see myself using the quick-draw ice axe holder though lol. But that's just me.
