Very comfortable, well made and durable, so far so good for my day hiking and shooting.
Rich D
Another great benefit to the camera compartment opening from the opposite side is that when you set your bag down, the ground touches the outside of the backpack.
A. Joshua Dritz
All in all a good pack for camera gear in the field or around town if you need to carry more than camera and one lens.

I took this bag with me on a back packing trip in Moab, Utah. We had a base camp where we slept but we trecked the area daily to see what we could discover. Not knowing what to expect I was able to pack a D300, a 200-500mm f/5-6.3, a 55-200mm VR f/4-5.6, a 17-50mm f/2.8, a 90mm macro f/2.8, a tripod, and accessories. The great thing about this bag is that it made it very easy to change lenses on the move. Not knowing what we were going to walk up on I had the opportunity to shoot everything from my telephoto to macro. I simply took down the shoulder straps (while the bag is supported by the waist belt), and swung it around on my hips. The bag lays flat like a table supported by your mid section. Since the bag opens from the opposite side of most backpacks I was able to change my lenses as I walked. The bag stayed sturdy and made a great table to lay the camera on and switch out lenses. This was great because not everyone I was with was a photographer. I was able to change my set up, talk with my friends and keep up while getting my shots. Another great benefit to the camera compartment opening from the opposite side is that when you set your bag down, the ground touches the outside of the backpack. This helped prevent from dust getting into the camera compartment when opening it. This was an amazing bag to take when you want to bring a lot of equipment. The bag is sturdy enough to support a large amount of weight while still maintaining functionality. I was most impressed that the bag could lay flat like a table and still support all the equipment in the bag with out over extending from my waist. This is a very comfortable, functional and well designed bag.

I shoot a Canon 40D and carry a 400mm f5.6, 17-40mm f4.0, 50mm f1.8 with accessories and various gadgets. The pack rides well and I have hiked for hours and it still feels comfortable. The weather cover works very well as I have been caught out in the rain and had to deploy. I did have to remove the tripod and carry seperately in order to cover the pack. That is the only reason I did not rate 5 star.
I do like the ability to keep the pack attached with the waist strap and rotate to access the camera storage area. All in all a good pack for camera gear in the field or around town if you need to carry more than camera and one lens.

One of the features I have found missing on many reasonably sized backpacks is he ability to hold multiple lenses with hoods. After reconfiguring, this one can do it. The bottom velcro strips run full length of backpack interior allowing you to run the main partitions side to side instead of up and down.

For example, mine is now configured as
-upper section has Canon 5D sideways and turned on its edge with normal zoom (24-105) and hood reversed
-middle section has another Canon 5D sideways with telephoto zoom (100-400 or 70-200) and hood reversed
-lower section has wide zoom (17-40) on end with hood reversed plus 100mm macro with hood reversed either on end or laying down
With this arrangement all lenses but the telephoto zoom can be interchanged with the one on the camera in the upper section.

Note that retrieving items from lower section is partitially obstructed by the cover that does not open all the way - that's what supports the backpack while you have it open when attached by belt strap only. This is a problem in retrieving large squared off objects from that section but not in retrieving lenses.

Unlike the Slingshot series that is preconfigured similar to the above, this gear is carried comfortably, thanks to the full shoulder strap system and lumbar support on the Flipside that was missing on the Slingshot.

The stretchy pockets for water bottles and such are on both sides and have a sliplock strap above them also.
The upper section seems a bit deeper than the rest of the backpack interior so as to better accomodate pro cameras or cameras with battery grips.

I spent a lot of time trying to choose the right camera backpack for a 3 week trip - a lot of time.......I ended up choosing this and will definitely give it 4 stars. The good: I like the design where it opens from the "back"; the bag is big - but not too big (it is fairly narrow); I stored my camera with attached lens (24-70), 2nd lens (70-200) AND an extra body, a 20mm lens and a teleconverter in the "backpack" part and plenty of chips, lens cloths, filters and a few documents in the outer pocket. Heck, I even stashed my netbook inside with the camera(s) for plane rides and used the outer side pockets for water bottles! I used the tripod holder - one of the reasons I chose this bag - and while it works, you'll definitely want to buy or make a "sock" for your tripod or you'll scratch it up when you set the pack down to open it up. The rain cover works well too - and was well used on this trip! The cons: ok, I don't have a good solution to this, but if you wear a backpack, you'll have to take it off to get your gear out......and I was switching between lenses a lot. While next time I'll have 2 bodies - one attached to each lens, I will still need to get them out of the bag as I won't have them both out at the same time (too much dust etc). And this just takes time.....

Bottom line - I like the bag a lot - and after the trip, I still think I made the right choice.
