4.0 out of 5 stars Student-Type backpack, decent for the price, December 14, 2005
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 admit it-- I bought this backpack for two main reasons. The first was that it looked like I could shove a water bottle into one of those side pouches. The second is because I could shove a normal sized notebook into that large front pocket.

Neither is *exactly* true. I can fit a waterbottle in this thing, but that's because I put it on in the webbing on the front. But my wallet fits perfectly in that side pocket, as well as my cell phone.

The large front pocket won't hold a notebook computer unless it's a *small* notebook computer -- smaller then my fairly normal sized toshiba. But it will fit a comp book, two paperbacks, or a 1 inch binder. It could probably even fit a small text book and a comp book, which makes it great for a photography class.

One thing I miss is that my Lowepro Minitrekker had pockets within pockets-- inside the large fromt pocket, there are two little "bag" pockets that look like they were meant to hold water bottles. They're aaaaaallll the way down at the bottem, so there's not really any place to put things like lens caps while you're shooting ( I'm a girl, so I've gotten into the habit of sticking lens caps in my bra. Don't laugh! It works! ).

It's padded and all, but it just doens't feel padded enough to me. There's not really much padding on the sides, and there's none whatsoever on the top (where you put your camera!). The reason for this is that the bag is supposed to be sort of quick-draw -- if the zipper is at the very top and middle of the main pocket, and you open it half an inch, you can see the LCD of your camera. Another few inches, and you can draw your camera right out without having to open the entire bag.

Speaking of "the entire bag", that's something to be aware of. There's plenty of room in this thing to shove random doo-dads to the point where I've started putting things in there that I don't really need ( for example : a pair of gloves. I should mention I live in the tropics--I haven't used them yet ), just to fill in the empty spaces.

My two favorite things about this bag is that it A) doesn't look like a camera bag ( it looks like a semi-bulky school backpack, especially if you use a seam ripper and get rid of the canon logo )and B) If you empty it out, it folds down pretty flat for a camera bag --useful if you transfer your stuff from bag to bag like I do.
