Summary: All in all, this is a good bag. It's not quite as well designed as the Compu-trekker for a 15" computer. The improvements in the shoulder straps mean the computer pocket can't top-load, which makes getting one in and out a bit trickier. Since I also use the pocket for books, reflectors, gray cards, etc., I do miss that aspect. I also think the very bottom of the main compartment is a but flawed.
Summary: I use this bag if I decide to bring most of my equipment. I have put my: 40d, 50d w/ bat grip, 70-200mm, 16-35mm, 24-70mm, 50mm, 100mm, gary fong lightsphere kit, camcorder, 4 pocket wizards, (2) 580 flashes, 3 battery chargers, spare batteries, filters, memory cards, cables, a lens cleaning kit, & 15" mac book pro. At this load the bag is pretty much at its MAX capacity. Hopefully this will give you an idea of the space inside.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Summary: Used it so far to go camping and travel Europe. Fits everything you can think of and more. Can get heavy if packed to the gills. Wish it had more separate compartments to fit little things like tools and gadgets and wish equipment was more accessible while still wearing it.
Summary: great bag, the only thing is it is bigger than i expected, I should have gone down to my local camera store and had a look at one before buying online, lots of room, and plenty of padding everywhere.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Strong Construction
Summary: Lowepro CompuTrekker Plus AW Camera Backpack (Black) I was looking for a bag that would hold it all and this bag has lived up to it. I have had it for a few months and it has held up very well. The cost was lower than that of other equal bags and its simple color and design help keep people from noticing the bag. It has a pocket for every thing in the front section from pen folders, business card holder, key fob, etc.
Summary: This seems to be the perfect intersection of a bag that holds all I need while not killing my back. The wheels are great when they can be used, and the backpack straps cover all other times. While this bag is rated as airline cabin compatible, I question that. Perhaps without the laptop within, then maybe so. Also, the compression straps serve no purpose, get in the way, and therefore are best when cut off. Like many Lowepro bags, the zippers are the weakest link.
Summary: The bag is ideal for those who travel with a substantial amount of gear and would like it transported safely, for example with the knocks and bangs of air transport or backpacking. It is ideal to permit one to gather all the extra lenses, flashes, filters, chargers and a camera body. More than transport, I use it at home as a place to have all equipment in one convenient and ready-to-go spot.
Pros: Large volume, Strong Construction, Waist strap
