Pros:

2-Phase Expression: Pump In Style breast pumps have exclusive 2-Phase Expression technology that mimics a baby's natural nursing pattern.

Suction/Cycle functions: An adjustable speed/vacuum dial lets you choose the most comfortable setting. This also helps you select a setting that helps you express the most milk in the shortest amount of time for your body.

Cons:

Weight: At 9 pounds The Pump In Style with the shoulder bag is quite heavy.

Convenience: The pump does not detach from the bag which makes the system slightly less portable than others on the market.

Membranes: There are some complaints about the membranes tearing where they connect to the valves. If you go with this model, just handle the membranes with care.

Collection: The pump comes with 4 5 oz. bottles, so you may need additional bottles or milk storage bags for collection. Luckily, most bottles attach well, including Dr. Browns. Most pumps are going to have this same drawback, so you should be prepared to buy extra bags or bottles with any pump you purchase.
