  • Excerpt: This is a great bag of which I picked up a used copy at my French B&M photo store. It was in "like new" condition and not expensive ... the newer version had been released and this bag was "discontinued" ... despite the fact that plenty of new ones could still be purchased via Internet.
  • Pros: Comfortable, practical, build, swing around for DSLR access via zippered flap ...
  • Cons: Maybe too small for me now ... upper compartment a bit tiny, enlarged on newer version plus addition of a tripod holder system

Decent Pack for Minimal Equipment

Jared N., Newegg
14 January 2009
  • Summary: There are a couple of side pockets in the main compartment to hold lenses - one would have to be a short prime, the other can hold a smaller zoom. So while it can accomodate other lenses it's not really meant for long lenses by any means.
  • Pros: Nice and compact for a DSLR backpack. The swing around design is handy to access the camera right away. There are plenty of pockets for cards/cases, cloths, cables, etc. Even has an attached microfiber cloth on the inside. The pack is padded well on the back, and is pretty comfortable.
  • Cons: Fairly compact for a DSLR backback - unfortunately, one of its strengths is also a weakness. The size is somewhat restrictive. I manage to squeeze in my EOS40D body with attached 28-135 kit - but that is the maximum. Personally, I'd like a bit larger model - so perhaps the 200 or 300 would better...

Great Camera Bag

Leslie B., Newegg
27 December 2008
  • Pros: Purchased this bag for my new Canon XSi. Everything fits with room to spare for more lenses when I get them and other gadgets. Very comfortable with great weight distribution and easy access.

sleek snug fit

William T., Newegg
28 April 2008
  • Summary: Great for the beginner photographer, but not much room for extras. The sling is nice, but I find I take the backpack off as often as I leave it on.
  • Pros: I have the Canon Rebel XTi that came with the 17-55mm lens. I have also purchased the battery pack and a 18-135mm IS lens. Everything fits into this bag with either lens attached pretty snug. Still leaving room for memory cards, cables, filters, extra batteries, etc. I should still have room for ...
  • Cons: The strap that goes around the waist is almost too snug for 225lb guy wearing a jacket.

Just right

Garrett P., Newegg
8 March 2008
  • Summary: It's a well built & compact case that I'm glad I purchased. NewEgg is awesome!!
  • Pros: It's a good size for a novice with a DSLR, extra lens & external flash. It fits my Olypus E-510, with an OLY 14-54 mm attached. It will also hold my OLY F-36 flash and OLY 70-300 mm lens, but just barely. I really couldn't fit anything else. I live in England, so having the rainproof cover handy ...

Not Disappointed

Burroughs M., Newegg
24 March 2007
  • Summary: One again, Newegg exceeded my expectations. Selected 3 day shipping and it was here in 2.
  • Pros: I did a lot of looking before selecting this bag, and I am very pleased with the 100 AW. I was concerned that it might be to small for my Sony DSC H1 and accessories, but it is a great fit for the camera, battery charger, cables, lens hood, spare memory cards, etc. Many nice and well thought out ...
  • Cons: Size is everything here. If you are looking for a small case for a compact digital, this might seem bulky. If you have a digital SLR and several lenses, you might want the AW 200 or 300. But if you get the the size right, you will probably love this bag

15 January 2007
  • Summary: Perfect for small DSLRs and a couple of mid-size lenses, but if you have a full-size one or use a vertical grip, you might find this a tight fit.
  • Pros: small, lightweight, easy access
  • Cons: users of pro-size DSLRs and lenses will have ot get the bigger models
