The Best!

JMW, B&H Photo
6 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I was using a shoulder bag for the last few years. Then I discovered this backpack and would never switch back. It gives easy access to camera/lenses and has storage for tons of other extras you might need while out on a shoot. Laptop, water bottle, lens cleaner, hat, etc. Worth every penny.

Tough on the back

Wayne, B&H Photo
4 December 2014
  • Excerpt: As billed this bag is well laid out and will allow you to carry a lot of gear. It is well constructed although I have had to repair a zipper. My main complaint about this bag is that when I load it with a day's worth of gear it does not distribute the weight very well.

Lots of options!

Discovering A Hobby, B&H Photo
30 November 2014
  • Excerpt: This bag holds a wide variety of gear with lots of different configurations and access points. The zippers are pretty stiff to start, but I guess it's better than their being loose and getting sloppy. My only real complaint is that this bag really isn't built for a tall guy like me. (I'm 6'5".
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Chest Strap Placement

One bag to carry the FX Camera kit

NSSKumar, B&H Photo
20 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Very sturdy, gives confidence to place the camera and lenses. Easy to pull out the camera with lens attached without dropping other lenses and flash. One thing I miss is to store more than one ND filter on side zip.

Perfect for travel

  • Excerpt: I bought this bag for travel with a laptop and photo gear. The rear compartment holds my 15" laptop snug, but it fits without much effort. I have also been able to pack the main compartment with a camera body attached to the 100-400 lens, and fit a second lens and flash unit.

Evolve to this Sling Backpack!

Honeybird Press, B&H Photo
22 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Expanding my photography business entails upgrading to more functional/rugged equipment for daily and travel use. The 5788 Evolution has not disappointed. It is very comfortable to wear - I'm a woman in my 50s and didn't want a heavy pack. Hiking with it fully loaded is not a problem.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
