Excerpt: I was looking for something smaller than the backpack that I usually have to wear to carry all of my gear when I am out and about on vacation. Besides carry my larger camera on a vest, my smaller camera, two extra lenses, batteries, and miscellaneous smaller stuff all fits in this convenient waistpack. I would highly recommend it to anyone. It has proven to be a great find.
Pros: Compact, Cost Effective, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Well Padded
Excerpt: This is a great product for field photographers or wedding photographers working in tight, hard to move spaces where carrying a big shoulder bag just won't cut it. After shooting weddings for 24 years my back is just a little tender so I had to get rid of the shoulder bags. I use this belt pack with the shoulder strap included as a secondary support. Works awesome this way because I carry pro lenses and the weight starts adding up. So far my back is very happy.
Excerpt: Fits my purpose for having a camera and a couple lenses and accessories always ready to go. <br />Quick access with the top zipper. Stabilizing straps on the sides. And most importantly, when wearing it around your waist, the shoulder strap allows you to quickly unbuckle the waist belt and turn the pack to your front for quick and easy access to everything without hanging on to the bag.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this bag for a wedding I'll be shooting in May, but used it for the first time yesterday out in the snow for an engagement shoot and it was perfect! I didn't even feel it around my waist. I was using the shoulder strap in addition to it being strapped to my waist, just for extra support and it worked out amazingly.
Pros: Compact, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Well Padded
Excerpt: I bought this to pack smaller lenses and teleconverters while I am carrying my big lens on a tripod. It was perfect for this. I wished it had about 1-2 inches more in height so I could fit better my D7100 with the AFS70-300 VR lens attached.
