Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dolica DK-20 Medium Travel Camera Backpack (Black) (Electronics)
For the price of this backpack ($41), I highly recommend getting this. The build quality is pretty good. The backpack is light, which is an important factor for me. I got this backpack because it has a tripod compartment - it works well. Most other backpacks in this price range does not have it. As a small person, it's comfortable to wear compared to many other camera backpacks I've tried. The inside compartment dividers can be sturdier but it still works well. I'm able to put a 1 liter Nalgene water bottle in the top compartment with other camera accessories like lens pens, SD cards, gloves, keys, etc. and it holds up fine. The back has a compartment that's wide enough for you to put a tablet in if you're traveling. I wish the backpack was a little wider (enough to fit a regular student notebook). It also has a strap around your hips for ergonomics so the backpack doesn't move around too much (important for hiking). The zippers work well - no snags. I'd still be gentle with the zipper so you don't break them since they're not the jumbo size zippers. Overall, I highly recommend this backpack. It's really nice and way cheaper compared to the ones they sell at Walmart or Target. It's also nicer than the Lowepro backpacks I've tried. It's way lighter and less expensive than the Mountainsmith backpacks. The MS backpacks are nice but they're not as ergonomic. The zippers snag against the flaps, they're really heavy, and more expensive. There's enough space in the lower compartment for a camera body and one lens. For a while I had the Canon T3i attached with kit lens (18-55mm) and the 55-250mm lens in the lower compartment.
