Excerpt: This bag is good for several things, notably it has a rain cover which tucks away nicely. It is also very roomy. However it does not allow you to store your camera horizontally with a lens attached. The best you can do with a lens attached (a short lens) is to store it with the rear of the camera body facing upwards. This has several drawbacks one of which is the rear screen now always touches the top of the bag. I did not like that.
Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, No Horizontal Storage
Excerpt: I wanted a bag big enough to carry and store a DSLR with an extra lens and a small camcorder. This bag is large enough for both. Nice dividers and plenty of pockets for small items. Well made and durable. Would recommend it to a friend.
Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: I use this bag for everyday shooting, usually transporting it on a small luggage cart. It works fine and accommodates all the equipment I need for a day's work. I love the extra all-weather cover as I'm often shooting near the water, in light rain, or from a boat. I also like the extra panel on the back that allows for adding a plastic insert with wheels. I didn't do this, since I already had the luggage cart, but may try it in future.
Excerpt: I got this shoulder bag after years of using backpacks. I wanted something that was easier to work out of, and the Nova 200aw fits the bill perfectly. It has room for my d7000, an extra body with lens attached, several other lenses, including a 70-200 2.8, sb910 and all the accessories. The only thing I don't like about the bag is the dividers are not as sturdy as I would like.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Plenty of room for 2 cameras and two or three additional lenses plus other gear. I particularly like the zipper / buckle option for closure: For storage or in dusty conditions you can zip, otherwise the buckle is adequate. Have not needed the rain cover yet, so no comments on it. Wish list: I'd like more dedicated pockets for memory cards, also, as the bag can handle two cameras, there should be more "paired" pockets to keep accessories for each camera separate.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Excerpt: Being the owner of a Nova 5 from approximately 1996 that is still in heavy use, I have a very high set of expectations. As far as I can tell the Nova 200 AW has the same build quality, roominess, flexibility, and durability as the Nova 5 did. Similar materials and craftsmanship are evident in this bag as the other. Can't rate it a 5; however, since the overall design of the Nova 200 isn't as useful as I would have liked.

Excerpt: I needed a bag that was big enough to hold my Nikon D7000 and several lenses but not be so big that it becomes too bulky when carrying on shoulder in the field. This fits the bill. With one zoom attached to body...I still have room for two other zooms and a couple primes. I basically wanted something that would hold/store everything in one place...and then when I want to shoot leaner and meaner...I just grab the camera, downsize my lens selection and use a smaller bag.
