Decent bag, but not comfortable

number6photo, B&H Photo
14 September 2014
  • Excerpt: This pack has ample space to fit most of the camera gear you would want to take on a hike. If it fit any more, it would probably be too heavy overall to wear for more than an hour or so (I'm pretty fit. Trust me, if this bag were bigger and you put more glass in this bag, you will be toast on a long hike). The side pockets that hold a water bottle without having to buy an extra bottle holder is nice. The tripod holder and rain cover work well are well-designed.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use
  • Cons: Chest Strap

Not happy with coarse material

CCIntrigue, B&H Photo
1 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this bag more for storage than a carry bag. It's a good thing because the fabric is so coarse that I'd have to wear long sleeves to keep from injuring my arms. It's also a little too small for me. I'll have to leave one zoom lens at home when traveling, but I don't really have to carry it. Otherwise it's a great, well-padded bag.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Easy access to equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Too Small, Very Coarse Material

bigger than I thought

  • Excerpt: The flip around doesn't work so great if you have a lot of heavier gear in it. The tripod holder is OK if you have a very small tripod.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment

Not enough room!

Adorama
24 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this to be able to hold 4 lenses (50,24-105,17-35,70-200w/2x), 430ex11 flash, and 2 pocket wizards. The problem is that when the lenses have the hood on them it becomes to crowded in the compartment and hard to zip up. I should have bought the Flipside 500. Anyone want to trade?
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, Too Small

Good product with a major defect

Wang, Adorama
24 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The initial design of the product is very smart. Access your gear from a hidden bag make it easy to accesss to user but hard to access to any thief. However, there is major defect. When you turn all back to your front, as advised, all the weight of the bag + photogear (can be 20+ lbs) is added the the waist strap. And the buckle connecting the strap is made of plastic and not strong enough support that weight. Mine was out of shape after the first use.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Easily Accessible Equipment

Great Quality, Hard To Access Your Gear

Fisherdog, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I was about to go on a hiking vacation, and for the first time I was in need of a back pack. I was on the fence between this backpack and one other one. What I liked about it was the size, all the space for my gear, and the video made it look like a girl about my size (or a little smaller I'm about 5'5") could handle it after a bit of practice. When I got it, I will say it looks like a very nice good quality backpack.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Hard To Access Equipment

Two SMALL cameras or 1.5 LARGE ones

Keith, B&H Photo
26 February 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought this bag because I wanted to be able to carry a Nikon D3 and D2(infrared) plus four lenses into the field.   It does this *just* - but only if I mount a *short* lens onto the bottom camera - either a 20mm or a 50mm. It's possible to mount a 28-70/2.8 on one camera and a 17-35/2.8 on the other and get them into the bag, but getting the lower camera back out requires a tyre iron and bad language.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Strong Construction

Love parts, others not so much

  • Excerpt: I got this pack right before a big trip out to the Southwest and took it on many long hikes. I do like the security of this pack with the equipment zipper next to your back - you can even swing leave it buckled around the waist, slip your arms out and swing it around front to get your camera out when you can't set your bag down. Very comfortable to wear and very adjustable.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction
