Good material but very POOR design,
This review is from: Nikon DSLR Starter Kit with Nikon School Fast, Fun and Easy DVD Set and DSLR Case (Camera)
This bag came with a DLSR package I bought a couple weeks ago and I was pretty excited about it. The material is good and it seems built to last. However, there is a pretty serious design flaw that has caused me to get rid of it. When you strap the bag shut the upper sides of the bag bulge out and create pretty large openings where the elements can seep in. It's pretty bad when you consider how sand or water can get into your bag and cause a really bug problem. Also, the inner adjustable compartments are pretty weak and it's pretty hard to get gear tightly secured into the bag. The bag can hold a decent amount of gear (I have a D3000, 35mm, 18-55 & 55-200 lens, battery charger and other stuff fitted in my bag but it just doesn't feel like a secure bag that I could trust for long term use.
I would suggest the Lowerpro slingshot bags instead. That bag gives you quick access to your camera, durable design and it keeps your extra gear solidly secured in your bag.

Is the material of this case leather?
