Great bag that holds everything!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon Deluxe Photo Backpack 200EG for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (Black with Green Accent) (Camera)
I had so much stuff in my huge LowePro Nova 5AW shoulder bag that it hurt my my shoulder and back to carry it around. Saw the Canon 200EG Backpack and based on reviews ordered one. I am impressed. It was about 1/2 the price of my LowePro bag. Its very well designed with lots of compartments, padding, external straps and quality materials. It holds everything that was in my other bag and I still have more room. I've got a Canon 20D with BGE2 battery grip, 3 zoom lenses (one a telephoto), a Canon 580EX flash, a Slik mini tripod, lens hoods for all the lenses, and a large assortment of filters for all the lenses all inside the main compartment. External compartments hold everything else like spare battery packs, chargers, cables, etc. Its got straps on the bottom to carry my tripod which my old bag didn't have. Its got other straps for carrying all kinds of stuff. And I carry bag this much comfortably. The one thing that the LowePro bag had was an all weather cover that could be zipped out to cover the bag in bad weather. Never used it anyhow so whats the point? The LowePro goes to E-Bay!

Do you think It could hold a 15inch macbook in the front pocket?

No it will not. It holds my 12" Panasonic Tough-book (barely) and will probably hold a slimmer 13" model but that's it.

It would be very helpful to have illustrations of how the items can be arranged and separated by the velcro pieces. They do not seem that strong. Jeanne

They are not....this pack is not deep enough to hold anything other than the smallest dslr. The velcro partitions are taller than the depth of the pack, very poorly planned. I really cannot understand how this pack got so many good reviews.....I just do not get it. I have two other backpacks....both lowepro's and both far superior to this bag.
