Pros

Very aero. Infact, the wind tunnel shows that is more beneficial WITH this bottle in, that without. Due to the advantage the bottle offers, it may not be legal in all races! (Some allow it IF there is actual liquid in it, whether you drink it, or not.)
Easy to use. The bottle slides in and out of it's "cage" perfectly.
The new model comes with a "cut here for storage"line on the bottom of the bottle. Cut on this line to open up the bottom of the bottle, and you can fit all of your tire repair gear in it, as I have. Eliminating the need for a saddle bag.
Durable. as durable as you'd need to still retain low weight anyway.

Cons

The only con, to me, is that as a water bottle. .. no good. The bite valve isn't what im used to. It didn't work as well as done other bite/pressure valves I've used. it's just not the best design I'd you're looking for an actual water bottle though!
race legal. Again, inv some time trials, and major level triathlons, check the rules on this bottle.
The main con i have is that it doesn't hug my frame perfectly. There are gaps where the geometry is slightly off. Which is bound to happen, but if a had a felt, instead of my shiv, it'd fit like a glove! It still works, just isn't as clean, if that's you're bag.

Other Thoughts

Not perfect as a water bottle, GREAT as a storage kit!
