Excerpt: Purchased as a gift for my wife and she couldn't be more delighted. It has enough room for her D600 and D90 plus lenses and extras. Feels really light even when it's full and easy access to all her gear. Love it!!!
Excerpt: In theory this is a nice bag for photojournalism. DSLR with standard zoom, strobe / flash, some cables and the laptop. The deal breaker is that the strap is really prone to twisting up. It is ribbed along its length and it seems impossible to keep it flat and straight. More over the strap pad is not removable, so it can not be centered if the strap is made shorter. If you can get over these issues it is a nice back with nice padding, nice way to organize stuff.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: The bag is very deep. I had bought the smaller one but it was to tight for my gear. I exchanged it for this one and I'm very happy. I carry my DSLR with an 85 mm 2.8, flash and a 70-200 mm 2.8, which is a big lens, with room to spare. There's space for an IPad or small computer. The front pocket is very spacious and can hold a lot of small stuff. There's also end pockets for water bottles.
Excerpt: I bought this for my husband and it's amazing how much stuff can fit in this well-designed bag. He can fit his latop, snacks, and all his camera gear. He gets compliments from his colleagues all the time about this bag. The bag doesn't look huge either yet it fits so much stuff. Awesome bag, awesome price. Fast shipping.
Excerpt: I have different sizes of bags and needed a mid-size bag for my lens and camera. This bag was perfect for just that. I can fit my camera body and my 70-200 lens and still have room for something else. the only thing I would say is I wish it would hold a 15inch laptop but that's just my opinion. For the price of the bag I couldn't say no.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: I hate to be too hard on this bag because it is cheap. The problem is it feels cheap. I'm a die hard Lowepro guy and usually stick with the Pro AW series, but I have several inexpensive older Nova bags that have been great and really held up well. I don't think this bag has the same level of construction or features as even the old bargain Nova bags. This thing is really boxy as well, which is fine if you're expecting that.
Pros: Good Protection
Cons: Not Enough Pocket Room, Too Bulky, Uncomfortable Strap
Excerpt: By default, the bag is set up with 3 compartment slots ... the center can hold a full-frame SLR with attached 6-inch lens pointed downward plus there is a compartment on each side. - Each of the side compartments can hold a lens up to 8-inches long. - Main bag area compartment regions are easily adjustable with the supplied Velcro attaching pads. - Bag is very secure: has adjustable clasp plus 2 Velcro patches that can be used optionally to secure the front closure.
Excerpt: This is a great bag. It fits everything I need in a well laid out manner. There could be some more pockets added for extra stuff. There's one issue I have. You can fit a 13" Macbook Pro inside. However, you have to remove the case if you have one. Otherwise the laptop won't fit. Other than that it's a decent messenger bag. I haven't had it for too long but it seems like it will last a while.
Pros: Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Stylish
