Excerpt: This is a great bag for carrying a decent amount of equipment on a day trip, but not necessarily your entire supply of lenses, bodies and accessories on an extended journey if you are a serious photographer.
Excerpt: Just had it for a week, but first impressions are outstanding. Fits a lot more than one would think. Had my Fuji X-T1 with a 10-24 with a L bracket, a 55-200mm, a 18-55, and the 35 f/1.4 Also had all the normal accessories like spare batteries, SD cards, cleaning equipment.
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: I learned my lesson about buying a bag big enough to fit all my gear, but so big I need a hand-truck just to transport it. I needed something for event photography - something that I could actually walk around with for a half a day without hurting my back.
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
