Poorly Designed Bag
14 November 2009
Summary: I had a Tamrac bag for many years that I loved and needed to replace. This was the closet to my old bag, but after buying it I returned it. Several reasons. First and most important, the inside is poorly designed because the top velcro strips are too high on the inside of the bag. This forces the camera to sit up too high. Second, the dividers themselves do not allow enough flexibility.
Summary: Bought this bag and am returning it. Pros: -Configurable interior compartments. -Design is OK. Not super stealth but pretty inconspicuous. -Fairly large front pouch for accessories. -Easy to get to camera. -Roomy. Cons: -Too easy to get to camera/equipment. Even when shut as tight as possible, you can easily reach in from the side and grab your camera. This was the deal breaker for me. I can just see water/dust making it's way into the main compartment.
