Excerpt: This is my only camera bag. There s plenty of room for 2 cameras several Len's and a flash. I have 2 criticisms'. 1 The first yellow cover could have been fitted to the front of the water proof area 2 save time opening the bag and it also would not then fall away loosely. 2 The water proof and internal zips do not go all the way to the base of the bag which makes access to the bottom bag difficult.
Excerpt: This is a bag that takes a little getting used to. Things are a little difficult to access, especially in the bottom compartments, but the security of waterproofing makes it a worthy sacrifice. Wrestling with the waterproof zipper can be frustrating if you're in a hurry, but the good thing is you don't have to in dry conditions. Just leave it unzipped. There's another regular zipper for the main compartment.
Pros: Comfortable, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: I am going on an Alaskan fishing trip and needed a full sized, waterproof backpack for my essential camera equipment. I chose the DryZone 200 due to excellent reviews and reputation. It has the space/compartments for my camera body and several lenses and other accessories. Most importantly, it is completely waterproof. The B&H price was the lowest anywhere on-line and the quick service, including shipping, was excellent. I highly recommend this pack and B&H.
Excerpt: I plan on using this backpack on our July Boundary Waters trip this summer. Great quality pack; plenty of adjustable Velcro, padded pockets. Extremely versatile and able to adjust easily toaccommodate to what you want to pack inside main compartment. Plan to to use waterproof compartment for small camera, phones, wallets and fishing tackle. Will report back after I returnfrom trip to update post.
Excerpt: I have had this backpack for about 4 years, it mostly gets usedon overseas trips where I use it has my hand luggare to transport camera gear and laoptop. The harness and back system is pretty good, even when the bag is heavy with a full load. Recemtly I went to use the bag and found that the waterproof zipper had seriously deteriorated with the rubber that incases the zipper falling to peices in my hands, and the adhesive (that bonds the zippe to the waterproof shell)...
Excerpt: I got this bag to be primarily used as a carry on so i don't have to check my gear. as long as you don't have a tripod attached, it fits easily into overhead bins on united, delta & hawaiian. i've flown on close to twenty flights over the last two years with it and never had an issue. I saw a couple hundred gallons of water fall directly on it when a boat i was on went under a waterfall. i was pretty pumped when i opened it afterward to check and everything was bone dry.
Excerpt: I have tested the DryZone 200 in preparation for an Antarctica trip and have found the bag too heavy, cumbersome and time consuming to get to my camera gear. The zipper is most annoying to open and close. Instead, I purchased several DRY Sack, lightweight bags in sizes of 2, 4, and 5 liter capacity in which I place my Canon 5D, 24-105. 16-35 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8 lens along with a 1.4 extender and all the accessories. Each component is safely sealed and quickly retrieved.
Pros: Strong Construction, Well Padded
Cons: Cumbersome, Hard To Access Equipment, Uncomfortable Fit
