This backpack is simple and easy to use. I got two of them one for me and one for my wife. I have size 26.5 boots and they fit fine. I do keep the boot straps tight. There is alot of room in the back after the helmet is attached. This bag is perfect for the day so your hands are free to carry everything elsePros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
A great idea

I purchased three of these bags for my family of skiers and snowboarders. They are very well made, functional and exactly what I have been searching for. We actually store the helmets inside the bag, rather than outside and there is still plenty of room for extra gloves, goggles, balaclavas, etc. I like the boots on the outside and all the rest of the gear neatly stored. We used to have bins of boots and helmets that were bulky and wet/mucky on the bottom and hard to manage. These nice, self contained units mean everyone can just grab their boot bag and their ski bag and off we go, no back and forth to load bulky bins into the car. We have 2 men's size 12 boots and I worried they wouldn't fit well, but no problem! They are great!!Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Well partitioned (separate areas for helmet/goggles, change of clothes, boots). Good size (adults may have trouble fitting ski pants into main compartment, but no problem for younger skiers). Materials and construction seem good, but we've only used these for a few weeks. Nice design features (e.g. straps are wide and well padded, a rain cover can unfurl to keep your gear out of the slop). Not cheap, but decent bang for buck. Would recommend.Pros: Great design, Build quality

Bought this bag to keep all of my snowboard gear in one place. I'm a ski patroller, and am on the hill 2-3 times per week. I don't have time to figure out what the weather is like every time I'm going out. This bag is great! I debated between the Pro and the Lite version because of the size, but the Lite has plenty of room for my size 12 boots plus a helmet, nice goggle pocket, and a back pocket big enough for several pairs of gloves, a few different hats, and some snacks (with room to spare). I like that it keeps it all in one place, and that I can just grab it and go. I also like that the boots are outside the bag so you don't end up with dirty pockets inside your bag. I would highly recommend it - and the price at Altrec is the best I've found.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
