The main compartment of the bag houses a separate, well-padded unit and removable pod providing a modular option that can be stored in a hotel safe.
J.E. Ocean
The interior compartment is easily accessible in a sling manner like the Lowepro Fastpack 250 Camera/Laptop Backpack or Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW.

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I recently reviewed the Tenba Roadie II HDSLR/Video Backpack 638-333. Then I was able to review the Thule Perspektiv. The contrast in design and purpose between the two bags is amazing. The Thule is clearly designed as an SLR daypack for wilderness adventurers who need to move fast with agility; compared to the Roadie II, which is more geared toward urban day adventurers. As you would expect, the Thule bag is quality made. Though I did not hear of them much before, my research shows the company is very well regarded as producing high quality products with great customer support. Interestingly, I read some product reviews putting down this bag. I am not sure if they were accurate because I checked this bag and found all the complaints of other reviewers to be largely unfounded.

Upon opening the box, I was impressed with the sleek outer design of the bag. Clearly the design of the bag was conceived with the purpose of avoiding entanglement in the wilderness. Construction and design was done with great detail to include overlapping flaps to keep out rain, interior seam sealing, double walled construction, quality heavy duty zippers, compression straps, heavy padded shoulder straps. I particularly like the quick release buckles to drop the pack in a split second, clearly designed to help you in emergency situations. The entire bag is made of water repellent material and a rain cover is included. All zippers are self sealing and water proof with interior seams. The top loading component of the pack uses "cloudburst technology," relying on welded and taped key seams, and a self sealing zipper to prevent water entry.

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Picture a sling pack, but with a standard pack design. The camera slips in the side pocket, large accessories in top, extra lenses in the same compartment as the camera. The latter is one of the more clever features. Most camera bags with the cradle design waste the space under the camera. Not here - the space is available for lenses, flashes, etc. The top pocket has almost zero padding and no way to attach dividers. The bottom is actually hard, like plastic covered in material. You'll need to use the lens bag that came with the lens, a towel - something for padding if you use this area for delicate equipment.

I personally find compartments for batteries and cards useless. I use dedicated CF and SD card pouches that provide organization and protection. Same for batteries. The pocket for these is basically a narrow pocket with a water resistant flap. It may hold a lens pen and cleaning cloth, but not much more. There are also two more narrow pockets that are so small, I don't know what you'll use them for. No padding - just like putting something in your hip pocket. Yes, they are water resistant, but anything that's not FLAT will be a problem.

The bottom, again, feels like material wrapped plastic. In my opinion this is a failing - there is no protection. Every pack I own has rubber feet, a bumper, rubber strip, heavy coating - something - here, there's nothing. If you treat this rough, it will wear. I also found the tripod attachment system to be pretty useless. For a monopod or Gorilla tripod, yes. Anything else, forget it. I tried two different travel tripods. The top is a strap with a very narrow base - the tripod rocks back and forth like crazy. The bottom is just a loop.

All the zippers are weather proofed, either by being water resistant or with a flap.

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
I ordered this backpack for a trip to Disneyland. Upon a arrival, you'll notice it is a really sharp looking pack, you can definitely tell that the materials are top notch and this isn't some cheapo backpack. The blue contrast lining and zipper tabs are a nice touch.

PRO's:

1. The sleek size is very agile, I had no issues walking around a crowded Disneyland.
2. The top zipper compartment was great for our Disneyland tickets, Fastpasses, and ART shuttle passes.
3. The tricot lining of the SLR compartment is very soft and the supplied dividers are firm enough to have the configuration hold it's shape.
4. The SLR compartment is good sized, I carried a Nikon D300s no grip, Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 with hood attached, and a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 with hood reversed, and I probably still had room for a 50mm prime and a SB-800.
5. The elastic side pouch is great for a beverage, and park maps.
6. The top crush resistant area was great for storing cell phones, sunglasses, chapstick etc.
7. Did I mention, this bag fits on ALL the rides at Disneyland?
8. The interior of this bag stayed bone dry after numbers runs down Splash Mountain, and the Grizzly River Run!
9. The shoulder and sternum straps are well padded, comfortable, and configurable to most people. (I'm about 5'10" and quite large in the shoulders and chest, and this pack fit quite well.

CON's:

1. I wished some of the stash pockets, namely the one that runs vertical on the back of the pack extended more to make the pocket larger.

All in all, if you are looking for something well made that is going to fit the bill for a trip to a theme park, hold all your precious gear, keeping it safe and dry, and having room for other amenities while not being overly cumbersome, this is it!
