Excerpt: excellent camera bag except tripod holder, you can't control it.. i mean when you put the tripod in its holder which attach to the bag while you are walking it will move to both sides so it can't be controlled
Excerpt: I received this Vertex 100 Lowepro Backpack in the mail, and I was dissapointed. I am a smaller built woman and this bag was way to big and bulky. I liked that it would fit my Nikon D3s with a 70-200 lens attached. It had lots of storage space, and seemed to be built well.
Excerpt: I think the laptop bit is misleading. You may be able to squeeze in a very small 14" notebook, but I feel the bag is designed to be just a camera bag and laptop carrying feature is more of an afterthought.
Pros: Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction
Cons: Cumbersome, Hard To Access Equipment, Laptop storage
Excerpt: I just ordered this backpack in preparation for a trip to Alaska. I feel like I spent a month going over every single camera backpack before settling on this one. Things I like: I got the smallest model and it's still plenty big for all my and my family's gear. It's sturdy, well made.
