3.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, but lacking a fair amount, August 10, 2011
By 
This review is from: Dolica DK-10 Small Travel Camera Backpack (Black) (Electronics)
Pro's: Sturdy/durable, good carrying options,
Con's: Slots are too large, not enough slots/ pockets/ elastic rings for peripherals. Velcro dividers don't seem like they'll stay in place. The storage and spaces don't seem to make that much sense.

I have a Canon 7D with a 24-70mm, 50mm, and a 135mm fixed, all quality canon glass, some extra filters, a spare battery (no battery grip), a spare CF Card,lens cleaners, tripod, The space for the camera with 24-70mm attached is great with room to spare (almost too much room to spare). When I go to organize all my lens, I find that there's almost too much room for my lenses as well, so I feel like they're bumping around in there. i tried, re-positioning the dividers, but there's really only one divider that I can re-position that makes sense. That's complaint 1. My second complaint is that there aren't enough side pockets for all my peripherals to be secured, so I ended up just piling them in the top main compartment, which is almost like a small glove box. Although a very disorganized way to do this, I wouldn't mind it, but there's the compartment is not sealed off from the rest of the bag, so if my lens cleaner (it's shaped like a marker) sometimes falls through the crack and is floating around in my bag. Also, my extra filters don't have a secure and separate place to slide in, so they're jammed together in a compartment. There's plenty of space for the memory cards, but to tell you truthfully, I don't care if my extra memory cards are bumping around a pool of other items, they'll be just fine. But glass that's gonna be between myself and my subject, should have their own compartments. Overall a decent bag, but if I had to do it again, I'd go with something different.

Sounds like you really need a couple of separate pouches that have a zipper around them to store your little loose items like filters and such. Also, maybe for a little extra protection you should get those cheap little cloth lens bags to keep the lenses in place inside the various compartments.

Now I know the bag should really take care of all that for you by being built correctly, but if you want to make do with what you have, as far as the bag is concerned, probably not a bad idea to add a little more protection with the pouches and bags.
