Excerpt: The build quality of the backpack is good. The straps are comfortable to wear, and the backpack doesn't stick out too far from my back. I have used the pack on one shoot so far and it was easy to grab things when I needed them. It's a small thing, but the loops on the zippers were easy to grab, and the zippers work well.One downside is there doesn't seem to be enough room for the camera.
Excerpt: This bag is amazing. The ability to safely carry my 13" macbook pro, my 70D, a couple lenses, an audio compartment for mcrophones & LED's, tripod carrier and rain protector. Its really perfect, stylish and useful. For me I like the size of this when traveling as its not bulky and feels well padded.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is an excellent compact bag. It holds my canon 70d and two lens and flash. It also can hold my surface pro without any issues. It's comfortable on the back and has easy access to the camera. Highly recommend it , my bag was actually stolen from me while on vacation and I bought the same one to replace it because I couldn't find a better one.
Excerpt: I was looking for a bag to hold: - Nikon D700 + 24-70 2.8 - Wide angle lens - flash - CF cards/accessories - water bottle - laptop/tablet I have the AW 250, but when I travel and want to pack light, it's just a tad too big. This bag easily fits all of the above. It would be nice if I could attach a small tripod and a water bottle at the same time (you can only do one or the other), but I can certainly live with that one omission. Overall, I really like this bag.
Excerpt: I was in the market for a long time searching for a smaller backpack that can fit a 13" laptop. If you are searching, you can end your search. I have a small kit, consisting of a T4i with the 18-55 STM lens + extra battery +several SD cards. I knew that if I got the larger backpack, the 250, I wouldn't use it because I like to travel light. I could see this backpack fitting an additional 2 lenses.
Pros: Affordable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I wanted a camera to fit: - Nikon D700 (without grip) with attached 24-70 2.8 - 18-35 wide angle lens. - Flash - Water bottle All of the items above fit easily into the bag. There is also a laptop sleeve and an additional top compartment for accessories/personal items. The weight is well distributed. The 24-70 is a beast, but doesn't seem to bad in the bag.
Excerpt: I looked for a while for packs under a $100 that had a combination of a few features, it was the only one I could find with all of them. Has a side load camera compartment for quick access, a tripod holder, a laptop compartment and an extra place for other stuff. I love it! It is very well made and very well thought out. The all weather cover comes in handy and is really easy to get to. I have already used it a few times and have only had the bag a few weeks.
Excerpt: This is a great backpack for the street photographer/videographer. I use it as a photographer. I bought it because it looks great, it's black and small enough to carry around. It also has a thing for the tripod which is a plus. It holds my Canon 6D with a 17-40 and 50 mm. The top part of the backpack holds snacks and other misc stuff. I'm just bummed it doesn't have a chest strap but that's a small issue.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Bought this bag just before a trip to Hawaii. B&H shipped very fast as usual. This bag was the perfect size to carry our Nikon D5200 and 18-200 zoom, plus room for another lens, battery charger, filters, spare sd cards, cleaning supplies, 10" tablet and room to spare. In fact it was the only thing we carried, our wallets, sun glasses and some snacks were also in there. Getting the camera out to shoot was quick and simple, loved that part.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Small Carries Alot, Strong Construction
