    This is a well made product.

    I have been looking for a bag for the camera and laptop, and this bag fits the exact thing I need, it is strong while still is a regular backpack.

    What a hulk of a pack. I purchased this to put all of my camera/ computer equipment in before going on vacation.

    In true fashion I packed too much...Canon SLR Body, two lenses, Ipad, 15" Laptop, two external hard drives, chargers for all the aforementioned and I didn't stop there. I then decided the bag looked like it could handle more and packed up my back up point and shoot, charger, underwater housing, sunglasses, two magazines, ipad photo attachments, cleaning kits, and an external flash.

    After getting to the airport and realizing I had packed entirely too much stuff we found out our bag that was to be checked was 10 pounds over weight and so in went the mask, snorkel, two pair of shoes (mine), and two purses (hers). Still over weight...the bag then inherited most of the contents of my wife's purse plus her confounded copy of some ridiculously thick Twilight book. At this moment we were both shocked and amazed that it fit all of that in it and still managed to be comfortable to wear albeit heavy. This feeling of euphoria was quickly brought to an end when we had to go through security and all of the contents were up ended out of the bag and then had to be repacked.

    Heck the security man was amazed at how many pockets, compartments and spaces the sucker had and swore he was going to buy one. This happened at two major airports mind you LAX/ ATL so you can imagine the crowd of people behind me. Sorry to those that had to wait but if you are a camera guy with a ton of equipment this is the bag for you especially if your wife consistently over packs like mine.

    In theory this bag is excellent. It can hold a lot of camera gear with plenty of space for everything else you need be it supplies for a hike, travel things (laptop cables, etc) or anything else you'd want to do. Unfortunately in practise it isn't the case. I've used the bag for around 12months and have tried to love it but so far it's left me looking at the alternatives. The individuals sections by themselves have a lot of space (as mentioned in other reviews) and can seriously fit a decent amount of stuff! The bag does feel very tough & I'm not all that nice to it and it's survived everything I've thrown at it without and issue so I've no doubt it's durable. If you're using really big lenses you may struggle to fit them in the camera compartment (most likely not attached if they do fit). The top pocket really does hold a surprisingly large amount of stuff.

    I've used this bag for:
    --------------------
    :::Day hikes filled with camera stuff, food, drink, 1st aid gear, rain jacket and some other bits and bobs.

    :::Travel around the USA for 5months filled with camera gear, 15" MBP, drink bottles, books, cables, snacks, passport, documents etc.

    :::Also used the bag with the insert removed and there's tons of space to fit whatever you want (I regularly cram all my groceries in there).

    All definite positives and it, again, works very well in theory.

    Now to the issues:
    -------------------

    :::Getting the camera in and out is incredibly frustrating.

    I just took this pack out for the first time today. I was able to carry a D300 with a 12-24mm lens attached, a 28-300mm lens, a 50mm lens, Hoodman and 2 filters + all the gear for a day hike, including a backpack stove, tea kettle, 1st aid kit and a lot more. I had no trouble carrying this load and was able to climb rugged trails and maneuver for pictures, etc. I highly recommend this pack for any photographer who wants to be able to do a long day hike (or ultra light overnighter) and bring their camera gear.

    Wow, finding a dslr backpack that has chest and waist straps is quite the chore. Then you also need one with plenty of space, which is another chore. And at the end of these chores, in steps the Mountainsmith Borealis AT Recycled Camera Bag to save the day. Protect your camera, carry your cloths, and distribute the ridiculous amount of weight you plan to put onto your body evenly.

    This is a great pack for taking your cloths, camera, and ipad for a weekend trip somewhere (e.g., visiting the folks or the shore house). It could use a little more room, but I am 6'2" so my cloths tend to take up more space then someone who is 5'4".

    The pack has built in support for carrying heavy loads (it's basically a hard-plastic ring around the back of the pack). This gives the pack a very rigid feel, which may be a turn off to those who've only used a soft canvas pack (e.g., jansport). This "built in support" is a feature you will see in a lot of hiking backpacks, and it tends to even the weight out on your back. In fact, most of the features on this backpack are built to help you carry a lot of weight (chest strap, waist strap, and adjustable shoulder height strap). The straps are built well, the clips appear to be strong, and the compression straps click in nicely.

    Other reviewers have complained about problems opening the zipper in the camera compartment. This is because there's a waterproof flap over a sealed zipper, so you cannot just yank at it like a gorilla or it will snag up (it's like the zipper around a weather sealed enterance/window in a tent, just unzipping it like a gorilla means it'll snag).

    Other reviewers also said you cannot open the camera section when the straps are clicked in...
