Great Bag but definitely size LARGE

Linda, B&H Photo

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Christmas present; haven't used it yet.I will use the pack to carry gear for field trips.Appears well constructed. Bags of room; more than I need at the moment but will allow for future expansion. Looks well padded and should be comfortable to wear when loaded up. Like the fact that the pack opens to the persons back. Also the integrated rain cover.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Roomy, Strong Construction

A Big Bag

27 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Upsizing from a shoulder bag to make room for newly acquired Blackmagic Cinema Camera and associated paraphernalia. I took this on a road trip out of the country immediately and found that: 1) it had room for the BMCC with view screen shade, Canon 7D, 5 lenses (2 with shades), Tascam DR60 recorder, headphones, a bottom plate and handles, two 256gb SSDs, 2 lens adapters, 2 72mm NDs, CF cards and cords. SO -- nice capacity.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Non-detachable Straps

Good backpack

  • Excerpt: I put my canon 5d II, 100-400mm, 24mm-105mm, 100mm, 12mm-24mm and three flashlights in it and still get plenty room. It is good for hiking but only thing I do not like is the way to hold on tripod. Unstable and unbalance.
  • Pros: Comfortable

Huge bag!

27 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Tons of storage in this bag! So many compartments to put different pieces of gear. It's made to be durable, to be used in all weather, and to hold almost anything. It easily fits my 5D Mark III, 300 f/2.8 IS II, Sigma 35 f/1.4, and 100L, along with my rain cover, cards, flashes, PocketWizards, etc. The only negative is the rain cover only covers half the bag.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Heavy
