Not quite enough protection,
This review is from: Nikon Deluxe Digital SLR Camera Case - Gadget Bag (Electronics)
I got the deluxe SLR bag as part of a kit for my new D3100 camera. It does a pretty good job of holding the 3 lenses, filters, battery charger and extra battery etc. The padding did a good job of protecting the camera but I noticed that when I picked up the bag by the top handle, not the long strap, the inside of the bag was open at either end and you could see the camera through the ends. I am very leery of a case that is poorly sealed against dust and dirt and I tend to carry the bag by the top handle when I get in a situation where I want to keep the bag close and there is more activity ( and more chance of dust). It is comfortable to carry but I am shopping for a bag that can be completely closed.

I appreciate your review. The bag should protect the equipment from dust, dirt, rain and knocks. If it can't perform those tasks, it's useless. Cameras and their accessories are not cheap!

What do you recommend for a D3100?

I really think what you have in the bag with all the lens is really add some stress to it. I have the D90 which really out weight your D3100.

I only basically had in the bag what came in the D3100 kit I purchased. Should easily hold that.

The bag should zip up around the bag and then clip on the outside cips. Shouldn't see the camera after that

I have had this bag for some time now. Initially I had the same issue, but then I realized that the cause was too much slack on the front straps. Tightened them up for a more secure fit and problem solved. I hope this helps. This is a very versatile bag with a good quality build. It should provide many years of good service. If I needed another one, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Thanks for reading. Tony
