Love this camera bag! It's not too bulky, yet it protects my equipment. I was looking for a camera bag that I could use when taking the kids out to the zoo, beach...etc and this is perfect! I thought the price was pretty reasonable considering it's a Tamrac. Love it!

I wanted a small backpack for travel with my CSC and this fit the bill. It does exactly what it is described to do. It will hold your CSC and 2 or 3 lenses and a flash, all of which sit in the bottom part. The top part will hold keys, cards, a wallet, batteries, etc; it is not padded.
Hiking/long walks with a backpack style bag is more comfortable to me than a messenger style bag.

If you are trying to pack a DSLR in this, the bottom is big enough for a body (no lens attatched), and two lenses. It is about 8" long, 5.5" deep, and 5.5" wide. So don't try to pack a body with a grip attatched into it! It will easily hold a 6d, 70d, or Rebel sized body with no lens attached. With a lens attached it will hold a 60d sized body with a 17-55 but that is all you're going to get in there besides little items like a card pouch or spare batteries.

One star taken off because it uses velcro dividers that have annoying double velcro straps on the ends. If you've never had to deal with them, they are velcro attachments that look like a "T" where the top is the velcro (a strip on each side) and the stem is the padded divider. I HATE these style of velcro attachments! They are a pain to pull out, a pain to put in. They are extremely clingy because there are two tabs at the top and two on the bottom. They do NOT like coming out. Makes reconfiguring a completely unnecessary hassle compare to the "L" style (stem is the padded divider, bottom is the velcro that runs along the entire length).

Do NOT purchase this backpack and then complain you can't fit your 70-200 f2.8 lens in it (unless that is the ONLY item you're putting in it). The pictures in the description clearly show it is a small backpack. You can't down-rate it because of the size, it is MEANT to be small (the inside pictures clearly show that). Taking off stars for size is like saying you hate your carry on luggage bag because it won't hold your guitar.

Tamrac makes great camera bags.

I got this because Amazon "recommended" it to me via my email and purchase history. Since it was on sale for 24 dollars.

It is quite small in space and really won't fit my full frame camera, Nikon D800E and any lenses of proportion. It is however ideal to carry my Lensbaby lenses, optics, and accessories. Just had to find the right use for it.

As far as "make" and quality would give it a 5. Ideal for mirrorless or point and shoot cameras.

I got this bag for a 2nd to my primary Nikon bag. It is a good day bag for filters 2nd lenses batteries and chargers. I like it because it was fair priced and it can be (although small) thrown over one shoulder. It has came in handy
