Excerpt: I had first ordered the speed racer, and while a fine bag, I found it too large for every day use. The speed demon would have been too small, so I exchanged the speed racer for the speed freak.
Excerpt: I do a lot of field work so having just the right bag is a serious decision. I've tried a number of bags from Lowepro and some of the messenger style bags including one from Thinktank. I settled on Speed Demon, not this bag. This bag was too bulky and heavy when loaded.
Excerpt: Wow, what a bag. I've been using the Think Tank Glass Taxi backpack for years. I really like it and have carried it for weeks at a time around the world in tough situations. It has been great except I keep putting it on the ground to change lenses.
Excerpt: This works well for carrying a limited amount of gear. It is advertised to carry a 70-200, 24-70 attached to your camera, and a flash. However, it was designed with the Version 1 24-70 (77mm diameter) in mind.
Excerpt: The Speed Freak is advertised as being able to carry a 70-200 2.8 with hood reversed, a full frame camera with the 24-70 (hood in either position) plus a speed light. While that has been true for a long time, it was designed with Version 1 of the 24-70 lens which is a 77mm diameter.
Excerpt: Was looking for a smaller, run and gun type bag when I don't need a lot of equipment, and one that would take weight off of my shoulders. This one is just about right and has a good amount of room in a pinch. Have to agree with another reviewer that the top cover zipper opening is pretty pointless.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight, Well built quality
