Great for hiking and working events
on July 7, 2013
I had an all day event I needed to work and this pack did great. I did not tire like I have in the past with a sling bag (its weight isn't equally distributed along the spine) and an actual backpack (just too bulky).
This pack had enough room for: a DSLR and mounted telephoto lens (300 mm), a smaller lens (80mm--with about an inch of extra room), my cell phone, a lens filter, lens cleaner and tissues, a granola bar, business cards, hand sanitizer, a small pouch for money, and an ipad sized organizer (with notepad and pen). And I also clipped a water bottle to the top strap--FYI: the strap on the bottom right of the bag is very wide and I could not get a carabiner to fit it. With the water bottle on the carry handle, it wapped me in the face when I'd bend over.
This may seem like a lot, but if it was a little bit bigger to hold a flash and extra batteries, that would be great. However, I understand that I'd be sacrificing some extra weight and bulkiness.
Also this bag is very well padded--I couldn't feel the camera on my back. It's made to try to keep your back from getting really sweaty--which will work very well when I take it on hikes.
