Summary: I wanted a strong, sturdy backpack that would permit me to carry two camera bodies and a variety of lenses, which I use to take pictures at my children's swim meets, amongst other activities, while built on a frame that would properly support the load and permit me to carry the pack onto a commercial airplane. This pack meets those requirements.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Summary: I use this pack to carry along a 15" laptop when traveling internationally. I carry 1 or 2 pro DSLR body and between 3 and 7 lenses at any one time. This bag is deceptively large and allows you to pack a lot of gear and carry it with comfort. Extra quality and tough built, you know this is a bag that will last and will protect your gear from water, dust and shock.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I carry this bag to work with me every day. My typical kit is a 40d with Canon grip, 24-70L mounted on the body and a 70-200L and two 580's. Plus various things like card case holder, blower, lens hoods etc. Also a 15.4 Toshiba laptop (power cord goes in with the camera gear). There is plenty of room for the camera gear but my 24-70 is a little wide for the extra padding in the middle slot (had to cut out the extra.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Strong Construction
Summary: Great bag if you like to carry everything. I found it fits well in airline overhead storage. You can cram a lot of kit in it. I managed to squeeze around 11kgs of camera, laptop and extra gubbings in to it when coming back to the UK. Even fully loaded the bag was comfortable. I'll echo the comments from above reviewers.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
Summary: On the one hand, this will do what it says: transport a lot of kit and keep it protected.On the other hand, when it is fully loaded it weighs an absolute ton!As usual with so many bags, there is no way to store the most common set up of 2 pro bodies with a 24-70 and a 70-200 mounted, but swap the 70-200 for a 16-35 and your good to go.Also, there are simply too many little compartments that actually make it harder to find items quickly, unless you have a photographic...
Summary: Used to haul my kit for mainly landscape work, with some air travel.have had the bag for over a month now, so sharing my experience thus far, like the waterproof zips, the harness is more comfortable than some full size camping backpack I own, now I wouldnt say that its capacity is that great when you moving with a lot of glass in tow, I normally travel with a 16-35mm 70-200mm and 24-105mm add to that the body a grip a couple of flashes+ bits and bobs and the pack is...
Summary: I bought this for a work trip where I was limited to hand luggage on a small plane and needed a laptop on location, so I couldnt use my usual LowePro airline friendly roller case.My main concern was fitting a D3S with a lens as many backpacks wont take full size bodies, but this was fine. The bag Pushes the airline carry on dimensions to the limit, and I was able to carry D3S, D800, 17-35, 24-120, 80-200 some Speedlights and a MacBook Pro.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Holds Pro Dslr
Summary: I bought this backpack to enable me to carry my photographic gear on board a plane as cabin luggage. It has achieved this admirably. It also takes my 17 inch laptop although Lowepro only claim that it takes 15 inch max laptops. When full the weight distribution is good with the feeling that the weight is carried on top of my shoulders. My previous bag pulled my shoulders back, making me walk hunched forwards. Ample room for all my gear and great protection.
