  • Excerpt: I finally got to take this bag out for a medium trek through the local zoo fully loaded. Yes, it does get a bit heavy but I could carry two camera bodies (D5100 w/18-140mm and D5300 w/ 18-300 older and larger zoom ) and most of my lenses (Pro optic fisheye, Nikon 18-55mm, Sigma 10-20mm Wide zoom, a SB-910 speed light, filters and assorted accessories. I hand carried the D5300 with all else in the bag.

Great idea...

  • Excerpt: This bag is well designed, it works as described. It is however... NOT a professional bag. I was looking for something to house all my gear... I mean ALL my gear. I see myself having problems making my way through a crowded airport with this massive black back on my back. Sometimes your bag does not get to fly with you and you hope and pray that it survives in the hold as gate-checked baggage.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Carry-all, Comfortable, Roomy
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Hard To Access Equipment, Heavy, Too Much For Your Back

Great Camera Bag

Karen, B&H Photo
13 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I use the product to take my long lens (200 -400 mm)when needed. Most of the time I use it for my D200 a couple lenses and a D80 body. There is room for personal items. The pack slides around and lets you retrieve what you need. I have used the rain cover and it worked well. My only 'complaint' is that it would be nice if the back pack came in more colors than just back.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction, Versatile
  • Cons: Color

Great Bag but definitely size LARGE

Linda, B&H Photo
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this backpack to carry all of my gear while participating in a 5 day workshop, hiking outdoors in one of our National Parks. I was immediately surprised at just how LARGE the backpack is and confirmed that it was more than adequate for all that I needed to carry with me. The backpack has great protection and lots of pockets that are right-sized and in ideal locations. Straps to secure and to carry tripods and monopod - weather proof cover.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Flexible Protection, Roomy
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: I needed a good size backpack to hold my 500mm lens, along with other lenses, another camera and other equipment. Still moving the velcro walls to fit my stuff just right.
