I waited for about a year before writing this review because I wanted to make sure this is not just another bag that ends up in the basement after a few uses. My Wife and I share this 22L and a 30L version. My wife uses this bag usually and I use the Gura Gear Kiboko 30L. She prefer the smaller size of this bag since it fits her better. We use the bags to cary what we call basic Kit for our wildlife photography. This will give you some Idea about us and you can put this review in perspective.
Our basic Kit is: D800,D600,D700 bodies, AFS 300mm f2.8, AFS 200-400mm f4, 2x SB910s, 2x BetterBeamers, 2x rain gear, AFS 24-120mm f4, AFS 17-35 f2.8, Micro, and fisheye depending on locations, Teleconverters, Filters, extra batteries for cameras and flashes, cleaning supplies and gloves and rain jackets for us. Tripods, water and snacks, iPads. We fit all of these in our bags and have more room to spare.
By the way both these bags have been replaced by a newer model called Butterfly. There are some improvements that may be of interest to you but look carefully if not, you can save some money buying these 2 models. We paid regular price and think it was a good value, it would be even better at a discounted prices.
The bags are first class in build quality and will last you a long time. They are very light and well thought out. The out side of the bags are very clean and no unnecessary pockets or straps hanging out. There are very extensive set of internal pockets that are handy for organizing all kinds of accessories. The harness can easily be adjusted to fit most people. The bags are shipped with many dividers fully installed and with extra dividers in a bundle in case you need more. The case is divided in to 2 sides permanently.Read more ›
