Great Camera Case for leisure or travel
6 March 2008
Summary: I love this bag! It works for travel or just leisure. The camera area has loads of room for extra lenses and accessories. The bag itself has tons of room for an overnight trip. Everything fits in one bag. No need for a purse or small carry-on. The description and reviews were very helpful in choosing this bag over some of the others. I received just what I expected.
Summary: I have the original Orion daypack, which is very similar except that the external appearance of the II is a bit more streamlined. I really like the design, with a separate bottom compartment for the camera and lenses, and a nice large top compartment with some divisions and pockets for things like a water bottle, lunch, maps, GPS, raingear, etc etc.
Pros: Very useful arrangement with separate compartments for camera/lenses and other gear
Cons: Camera compartment a bit small, harness hard on shoulders unless waist strap used
Summary: Well built... good for carrying a camera and some lunch... However, if bottom compartment is full, it rests awkwardly on the back(painful). But if not full, the straps are adequate for a pleasant hike.
Summary: This bag is really useful and versatile : - bottom compartment for the photo gear can be customized with typical foam-scratch pads - top compartment can carry food, clothes or anything you want for a typical one day photo trip. The build quality is excellent, but when fully loaded in both compartments, the soft back makes it a little unconfortable to carry for hours, compared to "real" hiking backpacks. But it's still much better compared to most basic photo backpacks.
