When I saw this new, improved model, I decided to give it a try as well. It's a little smaller, but the build is far superior, and the material looks more like what you would think a camera bag should look like. It's a little smaller in size, but I've been able to fit my Nikon D40, 18-55, 55-200, and my Nissin Di622 flash in it. The top flap is fitted, so when closed the whole package is tight and secure. The insert is a single piece that can be attached to any of the four interior surfaces, but it works best when both ends are attached to the same side of the case, making a "loop" to drop your camera lens into. Any additional lenses will simply slip in beside the camera nice and snug.
Even though the top flap is fitted, it is possible to fold the flap backwards and around the bottom of the case so that you could insert it into a messenger bag with the top open for easy access. This is a great case for carrying a small DSLR with an extra lens or flash, or just to provide a safe place for up to three medium size lenses. A great additional to any bag collection.
The insert itself is well padded, as is the divider. The lid folds closed neatly, and stays that way. However, I'm deducting a star from the rating because the lid doesn't fold back nearly as well as it closes. Due to it's construction, it doesn't fold flat down the back of the insert, causing extra bulk in my messenger bag since I actually don't want the insert lid in the way when reaching in my bag for the camera.
As for the insert it self, it is well padded. It comes with a divider/camera holder piece. This allows me to carry my apsc camera with a prime lens and additional small lens. In addition, I have my lens cleaner/blower. I have not tried it, but you can probably carry a full frame camera without any other stuff.
Materials used seem to be made of good quality fabric. It has a velcro strip at the front holding the lid. I have not had any issues with that. Lid edges are fully wrapped in heavy duty nylon type fabric. Inside of the compartment is soft felt type fabric and the underside of the lid is made of finer nylon type stuff. It is well padded to be used inside another bag.
It is about 8 1/2"W x 8 1/2"H x 4"D but can be over stuffed to be larger.
