Summary: Excellent walk about camera bag. Would be a tight fit for those using a battery pack on their DSLR bodies. Easy access to camera any time and inconspicuous as a camera bag. Can carry your equipment through airports with ease.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Well Padded
Excerpt: First the good: the Evolution 8 is a good size for carrying your DSLR with lens attached, a couple of extra lenses, a flash, batteries, memory, and a few items for non-camera use. The fit is good as a backpack, though certainly not anywhere as comfortable enough to use as a real hiking backpack. Without any internal frame support or frame sheet to speak of, the padding does just that pads well. It is well made and has great access through the front, or the sides.
Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Summary: Given as a gift to keen photographer - who now wanders the back of beyond taking some fantastic shots!! He's now able to carry all his photography equipment for a days outing in a single bag and he especially appreciated the clip tripod holder.
