It is larger than we expected. Of course, that is *why* it has so much room, but if it were full to capacity it might be difficult for a small-framed person to carry comfortably. That is absolutely the only reason I did not give it 5 stars, it is a great product!
I also have quite a few camera bags, mainly Lowepro, although I've never found one that's ideal for travelling. This bag, however, has ended that search.
On a recent safari trip, I managed to fit the following equipment into the bag:
* Canon EOS 1V body
* Canon EOS 5 body
* Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens
* Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L lens
* Canon 500mm f/4.0 L lens
* Canon 1.4x Extender
* Canon 540EZ flash
* Sekonic 558 light meter
* 50 (yes 50!) rolls of 35mm film
* Various other batteries, remote releases, filters, etc.
All of the lenses had lens hoods attached, even the 500 f/4.
Sure, the bag weighed a ton (I'm sure it was well in excess of 25 kgs!); however, I still managed to get it on a plane, leaving from Heathrow (not on BA admittedly), without a single question being asked. The key is that the bag is within the current carry-on guidelines and as long as you don't look like you're carrying a baby elephant, it seemed to be fine.
The quality of the build is - as with all Lowepro bags - really excellent, and there are a number of thoughtful touches which make this a real pleasure to use (e.g. dedicated pockets for CF/SD cards; special straps for a tripod; an excellent waterproofing system). The straps are thinner than I expected, although combined with the waist and chest harnesses, I found the bag - even when fully loaded - extremely comfortable to wear.Read more ›
I appreciate that the boring-looking bag doesn't exclaim "I'm holding expensive gear!" but it is pretty heavy when full. Assuming you won't go out from your hotel carrying everything, you will need a smaller bag to tote just camera equipment on excursions.
After this past trip I will rarely choose to use this bag: too much hassle.
A couple of minuses! The Canon 500mm F4 with the hood and front cover is higher than the depth of the compartment. May be the bag is not meant for this type of lens. But I will never know as the Lowepro guys did not have a technical specification on what types of lenses that it would hold. Anyways I am saved by the flexibility of the front cover!
The shoulder straps though comfortable could have been a bit broader at the shoulder to evenly distribute weight and preventing cutting into the shoulder and neck as it happened recently to me on a 6km trek through a hilly terrain. What is missing on the bag is a waist strap which I would have very much liked on this 6km trek. The bag comes with a all weather cover which is useful in a rainy place like in India. I cannot ask for much more from this bag for the price!

I love this bag and have had it for several years with no issues. Fits plenty of gear plus a giant aging lap top.
Well balanced and I love the rain fly.
Good capacity, looks cool, but my zippers are already busted.
Be weary if you intend to fully load this for each trip.
