I was concerned that this bag might be too small for a full size DSLR, but it is absolutely right for my D200 with 18-200 lens. I wish I could post a picture showing how perfectly it fits! Just enough room for the charger & extra battery or two as well. Memory cards fit nicely into their own pockets, and I can still carry a lens cleaner & a couple of filters. There is still a bit of room yet, but that is really all I need. The bag seems to be very well constructed, nicely padded, and I really like the overhanging top flap which helps protect the contents from inclement weather. If you need to carry a larger assortment of accessories or extra lenses, or have a bulkier camera, you might want to go for a larger bag. For those of us who prefer to travel light, the Explorer 1 is perfect.

I bought this case for a Canon 30D. It fits pefectly in there with a "Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens" Plus you can fit in there a zoom lens "Tamron Autofocus 75-300mm f/4-5.6 LD" Plus accesories. Great quality and durability. Very good buy.

I bought this bag for a Sony A100. Camera fits snugly and is well protected. The construction of this bag is very good, with heavy stitching and zippers that work smoothly. There are several pockets for additional accessories and yet the bag is compact and easy to carry, with a shoulder strap and a hand strap. Good performance to price ratio, I recommend.

Needed a DSLR case to hold my Nikon D40 with 18-135mm lens and small flash. Ideal size with just enough room for a second medium lens. Would highly recommend. Functional case at a reasonable price. Meets the need without the bulk.

I ordered, and Amazon shipped in time, very good service from Amazon. For this Bag, so far so good, a little bit small for me to put my Canon DSLR with Two Lens.

This camera bag fits my Nikon d40x w/ 18-55mm lens perfectly, plus there's room for a flash and long zoom lens. It seems well constructed. I chose this model because the top flap has a zipper close to keep out dust, plus it has a front clip for fast access.

I've been using an Explorer 1 to carry a Nikon D40x+lens, two extra lenses, and a flash. Everything "kind of" fits, but the bag's overstuffed, so the camera sticks up above the zipper. The bag closes, but bulges, with the LCD pressed against the top flap. A Nikon D90 is just a teeny bit taller & wider, so it sticks up even more... too much more for my peace of mind.

The Explorer 2 is just a little bigger in all dimensions than the Explorer 1... big enough to comfortably hold all the same equipment for the D90, and the camera does not protrude. The "2" also comes with a pair of horizontal dividers to let you stack things on top of each other, on either side of the camera. Getting to a lower lens might be a little challenging, and my gear doesn't need these; but they could be useful for some people.

The Explorer 2 is only $5 more than the Explorer 1, and I wish I'd gotten it in the first place, only because it's roomier. The construction and extra pockets are the same for both bags: excellent workmanship, good protection, and places for lots of little things.
