The main compartment is big enough for my extra 18-50mm wide angle lens with its own zipped sub-compartment. In addition, I routinely carry my charger, extra battery, cleaner, and other gadgets which photographry enthusiasts accumulate over time. I have yet to run out of room. The bag is big enough to carry everything and grow.
I picked this bag for 2 reasons: it was the cheapest for its size, and the unrecognizable name brand and design makes it look like a schoolbag to the casual observer. Therefore, it's a small deterrent to avoid attention from thefts. You can spend more but I wouldn't recommend it. Would easily choose this cheap alternative again for my expensive equipment.
It's the perfect size for me. I really like all of the space and pockets. There is a big zippered pocket on the outside as well as the 2 big zippered pockets inside. ALSO, there are tripod straps on the side of the bag!
The camera is protected because it is supended in a type of hammock that accommodates some pretty big lenses. AND it is hard to tip over empty or loaded. It's like a weeble! It wants to sit straight up.
I don't carry every piece of gear I own around with me for a day of shooting. If I am out for the day I usually just carry the camera on my shoulder with a light prime lens attached and leave my bag in the car, but if I need to carry this bag fully loaded it is very comfortable.
I keep these contents in my bag when I am on the road: Nikon d60 with nikon 18-135mm zoom attached, Nikon D40 body, nikon 50mm 1.4ais in a pouch, Nikon 50mm 1.8D in a pouch, Nikon 35mm 1.8 Af-S in a pouch, charger, 2 spare batts, rocket blower, cards, etc, with room to spare.
I HIGHLY recommend this bag!
- Easy to carry the equipment on your back, no back-strain for typical usage with padded straps
- Easy to extract the camera from the top pocket
- Sufficient pockets to get your stuff in (cellphone, GPS, energy bars, small water bottle .. you get the idea) besides the optical equipments
- Long warranty
- Main compartment does not have re-organization capability that can provide a snug protection to lenses, so the extra lenses just lie there loose
- Sometimes, it requires exercising care to extract the camera from the top pocket. It is not possible to attach the lens-hood and store it - it has to be taken off and stored in the main compartment.
- The zippers seem to be little on the weak side
Don't know points:
- Is it waterproof?
Overall, you have to try it in a store before deciding if it is right for you. It worked for me, and that is good enough for me.

What I don't like is how few options there are to fix expensive gear inside the bag to keep them from hitting eachother or shifting. The picture show's a zoom lens strapped in on the right side of the bag and this looks snugg and nice, but that's the only strap available. It's really basically just an open bag, apart from the lone strap. I have a DSLR, a walk-around lens, a 300mm zoon lens, a small fixed lens and a flash. I may also occasionally bring the camcorder along. I can't really think of many ways to pack all this without also packing my socks and underwear to keep the bits apart.
In hindsight I should have gone to a store and compared bags before buying, but who has time.
After having too many difficulties using a regular camera bag hiking and climbing steep terrain or mountain biking rail trails in the Cascades, this bag solved my problem. It's small, light weight, durable, and attractive. I especially like the opening in the top for the camera to be placed in as it provides easy access for needing the camera for a quick shot. (I originally planned on a "sling" backpack but did not find that attractive nor comfortable and did not think it would work well while mountain biking.) It has several small compartments and straps on the side that can easily hold a light weight tripod or even a jacket, windbreaker, cap, etc. It's insulated and "spongy" in case of minor falls, and the bag stands straight up when placing on the ground. It has lots of little zippered compartments for spare batteries, chargers, memory cards, filters, etc., and I also carry a smaller compact camera or video camera as well that fits perfectly in the outer zippered compartment on the back.
My only drawback is there are no compartments on the inside itself as in more professional camera bags and that means every thing has to sit loose on the inside sitting on top of each other with no padding or compartments in between to pad or isolate equipment from each other. I carry a 70-300 zoom lens and while it fits on the side with the elastic straps, the upper strap is not low enough to hold it firmly on the top -- even with the zoom extended in the longer position.Read more ›

Compact, and not bad over all. I wish it was a touch bigger for some our extra equipment, but that would defeat its compact approach. It is made well, and as advertised.Published 8 months ago by MattD
