This little bag is great!!!

I currently carry my Canon t4i with kit and zoom lens (55-250), attached battery grip, huge goitos bulb, Otpech utility sling, battery charger, and cables in the camera compartment. I still have enough room to add a nifty-fifty or the 40mm pancake whenever I get it. Removing the bulb will allow for a flash, and maybe another stubby lens.

The upper compartment (which was my main point of hesitation) is actually quite large and adjustable. you can move up or down into the camera bay. I found this rather interesting as I am able to expand the lower camera section about an inch or less depending on the configuration.

The front pocket is rather tight and flat, so don't plan in putting lost of things does carry a tablet (Asus TF101) perfectly as well as a notebook, a pen, and cleaning pen as well.

Tripod, or more likely mono-pod configuration is ok at best. It maybe too cumbersome to carry anything given the size of the bag, but I'm chucking this to personal preference....I don't like to lug too many things.

Most importantly it's very easy to carry and non-intrusive. I also have a Vivitar DKS-20, which can fit a 15.4 laptop, and a few more gadgets comfortably, but it is a big can't always get away without hitting things or people as you try to squeeze into tight places with it...the DCB-308 is quite slim for the amount it can carry.

The only negative that I can raise is that the sling can only go over the left shoulder, which is the same shoulder I sling my Optech utility sling. I think it's a matter of getting used to it. My previous bag I could do either shoulder, I would use the bag on the right shoulder and the camera sling on the left, but again this is not a deal breaker.

I will be posting pictures of my configuration soon. Overall very satisfied with the purchase!

I would highly recommend this bag!!!!

05/09/13 UPDATE______________________________________________________________________________

I took the bag on my first trip since I got it and worked like a charm. I did find a flaw with the bag...the top compartment zipper opens from the "bottom" when you have the bag slung in front of you. Basically once you are wearing the bag on your back and you bring it forward to access the camera compartment (which should be facing up right now), the top compartment, which opens in a "c" form, opens from the bottoms side of the bag. This could be a problem if the top compartment is loaded. I was carrying ND filter kit in the mesh pocket on the top compartment, so I felt the need to be extra cautious when getting snacks out of the bag.

This alone is not enough to take a star down, but maybe enough to deduct 1/2.

I was able to carry everything that I needed and more form my trip in the Bahamas, and felt that the gear was well protected at all times while riding a scooter through the city.

7/10/13 UPDATE____________________________________________________________________________
I have to say that I really like the versatility of this bag. I use it several times a week, and still holding strong. I have to say that I am very impressed with the construction and weather proofing. We took our daughter to the zoo, and it rained 4 of the 5 hours we were there. I packed everything in the bag and put the weather cover on it, and during the 4 hour rain, the bag and all of it's contents remained dry.

Recently took it to Disney World for the weekend with 9 lbs worth of gear (Canon T4i, 50mm f1.4, 35mm f2.0, Rokinon 8mm f3.5, and some misc gear in the top compartment) and as a person with lower back issues, I can honestly say this bag did not hurt my shoulders nor back during the two days were there.

Overall you cannot get a better value than this bag!

Short Review - Great bag design, shoddy construction

Long Review - This bag is great for travelling. It has a main compartment to hold your slr with one lens attached (I have the 28-135mm), two smaller areas to hold two additional lens, a great place to hold your sunglasses/passport as well as a sleeve area to hold a Galaxy 10.1 tablet.

Overall, great design as I'm in love with it as I was able to pack all my travel needs into one area.

Now with reality of using this bag. To make it short, the construction of this bag is shoddy.

For bag #1, I went on a 2 week trip to Japan and on day 2, the main shoulder strap started to tear. It ripped about 3/4 of an inch and it was obviously due to weight. This bag may have all these great pockets and compartments, but it cannot support the weight if you fill the contents. For the remaining days overseas, I emptied out the bag to carry just the SLR (Rebel T3i), 3 batteries, and my passport. The bag did not rip any further but my disappointment with this bag did not end here.

After returning to NY, I called Amazon and they were kind enough to send a replacement bag with 1 day delivery. Great!, I thought. I received the bag yesterday and brought it out with an SLR + 28-135mm, 3 batteries. No issues until I returned home.

As I was opening the main SLR compartment, to my surprise and disgust, the shoelace material that surrounds he main SLR compartment, rips. I spent 15 minutes trying to get the shoelace material reattached to no avail.

I had enough with this bag, it's way too much stress over a bag and I'm just grateful Amazon's customer service is exceptional and allowed me to return this item.

Once again, I reiterate, the design of the bag is well thought out and I absolutely loved it. It is very functional for your SLR and travelling needs; however, the shoddy manufacturing of this bag really disappointed me.

Thank you Amazon, Thank you Case-Logic Design Team, Shame on the manufacturing team.

Did a lot of research to choose this one for my family's Hawaii trip, and it lived up to every bit of my expectations. Very happy with it. What I really like about it:
1. Great quality material and attention to details workmanship
2. Love the swing around and side open design. I was able to pull out the camera and ready to shoot in 2 seconds after getting use to it.
3. Deep enough for 75-300mm lense. I wasn't sure before the purchase whether it is deep enough (as the camera is held sideway inside). It turned out my Canon T6 with the 300mm lense on has no problem, and fit in just right.
4. Loved the rain cover. On our lava boat tour, we rode through 40 minutes of rough sea and got soaking wet. The rain cover saved the day big time. Without it, I don't know what damage will the sea water do to the camera and lense, and even worse, ruin the rest of the trip if the camera is damaged.

One recommendation: the rain cover can cover 5 sides of the bag, but not the strap side of bag. In a heavy rain (or soaking sea splash in my case), the bag still got some water from the unprotected side. Making the cover a bit bigger to wrap around to the strap side of the bag can help a lot.

 This bag is cool. I was shopping for a bag for my DSLR cannon 70 D.
I saw three or four different bags, and I didn't like any of them. And then I saw this one from Logitech and it looked interesting, so I decided to order it. I've been using it for more than three years, and the only thing that I can say about it is that I love it.

PROS: It has more than 15 different compartments, and some of them are adjustable, so you can use them however you need them to be.
It has little cover so you can cover her to whole bag from the rain, just in case you are shooting photos on the outside and starts raining.
All the zippers are easy to use.

The other thing that I like is the one strap design. Also, that it has two holders, one on the top and the other on the left side for easy carry.

CONS: It is not 100% water proof, they can improve on that. I wish that they can make it water proof.
It's a little too expensive.
I wish they can also make this in different materials, so it's a little more smooth.

FINAL THOUGHTS: With all the different and adjustable compartments, it's an easy choice. Too bad that it's not water proof, and I wish that they would lower the price a little bit. But overall, this is an awesome bag, I highly recommend it.

At first, I was a little skeptical that this bag would fit my needs. However, I decided that for the price, it was worth a gamble. I have found, after a few months (about 2-3 times a week), that for the most part, I am happy with my purchase. The strap is comfortable and wide enough to not pinch when the bag is full and heavy. I have read reviews which mentioned that the strap was tearing or coming off, I have seen none of that. I have yet to use it in inclement weather, so I can't comment on the water resistance of the bag itself or the included water proof cover. It has plenty of storage space for a day trip, with enough pockets and pouches to keep everything organized. I can fit my Pentax K-50 with 55-300mm lens attached, which is great. I wish it was a little bigger, so that the top storage pocket would have more room. You can move the bottom of that pocket to have more room at the expense of losing room for camera/lenses. My biggest worry, which turned out to be true, was that the "tripod system" looked sub-par. I use a SLIK 340DX, and while it does fit, only two of the legs can be fit into the pocket and the securing strap is too low and loosely attached that it constantly flops around. I imagine a monopod would fit well, as well as a much smaller tripod, I just find it was not well thought out. Overall, I'm happy with the bag (for $40 I'm not expecting it to be perfect) but with a larger, more secure tripod system, I would've been much happier.

- Deep enough to fit my Pentax K-50 with 55-300mm lens attached (lens hood reversed)
- Able to change lenses using the bag, rather than finding someplace to set down the camera, which is convenient and reduces the exposure to dust
- Front pouch easily fits my tablet
- Shoulder strap is easily adjustable with a velcro strap to secure excess material

- Could be larger
- Tripod system needs to be redesigned

This was not the first camera bag I purchased. In fact, I started with another Case Logic sling by almost the same exact name: Case Logic SLRC-205 SLR Camera Sling (Black)
That was bad. If you want my full thoughts on that bag, you can read my review of it in full there, but in short, though I thought the build quality was EXCELLENT, the design turned out to be far less so. There was next to no usable storage in the bag, with the only available space being taken up by a tiny compartment for the camera itself, and one huge, wide open, oddly-shaped pocket that I would not want my stuff flopping around in--or worse yet--rubbing together in. I returned that bag to Amazon and sprang for the extra $6 to go with this model, the DCB-308. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. In fact, it boggles the mind that Case Logic makes both these bags. This one is so well thought out, you would honestly think it's from another company entirely. First, the size on this bag is certainly bigger than the other, but not a whole lot bigger. It's still significantly smaller than a regular backpack. The second thing I noticed about it is its ability to stand up on its own. The bottom of the bag is firm and flat, and the camera sits in the bottom of it, giving it a nice firm footing and allowing it to be stored in the most efficient space-saving way possible (the other bag just slumped into an unorganized pile when you set it down--not pretty). Inside the camera compartment, there is a cavernous space with plenty of room for my 7D (which is a big camera) and any relatively large lens attached. The compartment is divided with a system of semi-rigid dividers with velcro strips. These dividers also section off the bag from the other access areas and provide the bag's solid form. It doesn't feel like a plastic box covered in cloth, but it also doesn't just feel like a loose bag. It has a firm feel that inspires confidence that it will protect your gear and hold on to its good looks, but it also has some "give" to remind you that it is, in fact, a bag, and it won't hurt you to carry it around. In the very top of the bag, there is a zippered "door" to access what I call "the trunk." This compartment is roomy, deep, has a solid floor, and just BEGS you to put all your odds and ends in it: battery charger and spares, air puffer, cables, name it. This compartment is just plain USEFUL. And it's situated perfectly. There's also a nice stiff handle right above the trunk to carry the bag when you're not going to sling it over your shoulder. Other pockets include a many-layered front flap big enough for an ipad (for size reference--I doubt I'll be carrying mine in there) with several pockets, flaps, zippered compartments, etc., and a small lens cap pocket (clearly designed just for that purpose). If you are a pro with many lenses you need to carry around everywhere, it still probably won't work for you and you will need to go with a full backpack or other bag. But if you're like me and want to be able to carry around a camera with one lens attached and 2-3 other lenses, and also have a convenient place to store all your camera accessories, I don't know if I could design a better bag. I'm that happy with it. --And as someone who has returned another bag in the search, you can trust I'm not one of those "loves whatever he has because he wants to prove to himself that it was a good decision" guys. This bag really is that good.
One last note regarding comfort: This one feels a littel firmer on the back, which isn't a bad thing. Also, the secondary strap on this one seems better thought out than the other. On the other bag, the secondary strap was a belt strap, and it was too short for many people. It also did little/nothing to ease the burden. On this bag, the secondary strap comes up under your left arm and clips to the main strap right below your collarbone. This does two things VERY well: it locks the bag on your body to the point where it almost feels like a safety harness. It's very secure, but still comfortable. Secondly--and this is kind of a big deal--it gently pulls the main strap away from your neck/collarbone and prevents rubbing. I have no doubt I'll use it for that feature alone. Sling bags by design use the area between your shoulder and your neck as a stop to keep them in place. Sometimes after a little wear, that can start to feel a little too much like you're wearing a bag around your neck. This bag offers some relief in that way, where the other never could.
If you happen to be on the fence at all between this bag and the SLRC-205, the choice is clear. Now for the embarrassing part: the biggest factor in choosing the other bag in the first place was looks. How silly is that? Well, as it turns out, pictures don't do this bag justice. It's actually very handsome in person.

The Good:
This sling offers a variety of pouches and ample space. I was able to fit my Nikon D3000 along with two lenses (18-55mm & 55-200mm) in the largest compartment with extra room. The cool part here is that you are given Velcro inserts to customize how everything sits in the compartment. I was also able to carry the charger, computer link cable, phone, wallet, external battery and light snacks. The sling was also carrying my 5ft tripod with minimal swaying. So, the best thing about this sling is it's carrying and customization options.

The Bad:
If you plan on wearing this sling for extended periods of time, reconsider. This sling is better for short periods. I was wearing mine for 4-5 hours at a time and I was constantly shifting the sling from shoulder to shoulder. I had to do this since it was uncomfortable for those long periods. It may have been caused by all of the weight resting on one shoulder.

The Ugly:
The seam at the bottom of the sling is coming undone after one weeks use. The tear is between 2-3" in length and the only thing holding the sling and backpack together is the remaining seam and the mesh that is found on the back side of the backpack. My girlfriend offered to stitch it back up, but I am resisting considering how long it took for the product to come undone. It may be only another weeks time before something else comes undone.

I bought this bag after owning the AmazonBasics backpack for a few months. I didn't like how high on my back the backpack rested (I'm 6'1") and was looking for something a little more comfortable. This seemed to fit the bill so I gave it a shot. Here's my observations:

- The bag is pretty comfortable, even for long periods. I wore it all day for three days walking around Disney World and never had too much of a comfort issue.

- It's pretty sturdy. I loaded it up pretty good - I had my Canon 70D with 18-135 on it, a Sigma Art 30mm, filters, memory cards, extra battery packs, a few other miscellaneous items and a MeFOTO RoadTrip tripod strapped to the outside. The shape of the bag only distorted slightly under all that load.

- The swing around to the front function of this bag is great. It allows reasonably quick access to your gear and a sort of platform to work on while you change lenses or whatever. It was very convenient to not have to remove the bag to do all of this.

- The bag was very easy to travel with. It fit nicely through the airport scanner, and under the seat in front of me on the plane. In other transit situations, it is an okay size to have on your lap or between your legs and your seat if need be.

- Big con for me, and ultimately the reason I decided not to keep it in the end, is that the strap to hold the tripod is not very good. I had one leg of my RoadTrip in the zippered picket and the buckle strap around the top of the same leg - using it as it's designed to be. But, the adjustable strap would not hold well and because the tripod hangs from the bottom of bag while wearing it, it starts to droop. Before you know it, it's hanging at a 30-45 angle from the bottom of the bag leaving it susceptible to hitting things or other people when swinging around.

Although I didn't wind up keeping the bag, it's not bad by any means. If you're not going to tote a tripod around with you, the bag will probably be fine for most users. The shoulder strap is very padded and comfortable, and it only had to be tightened a couple of times since I got it. The materials are all of high quality given the price point and I was never worried about my gear being unprotected. If it weren't for the tripod strap being silly, I would keep this bag without a doubt.

The manufacturer commented on the review below
The bag is nice but not very durable. The loop that holds the chest strap clip ripped after two months of casual use. I carry a Canon T6s with the 18-135 lens, Yongnou 568EXii flash, Canon 50mm1.8, iPad, some USB cables, Rode LavMic, couple extra batteries and charger. The bag is full but not bulging or difficult to zip up. Also I am an averaged size guy and with the chest strap attached there is plenty of extra slack... This should be an easier repair but not something I should have to worry about after two months.

I amended my rating and increased it by one star because Case Logic's warranty service was so helpful. I filled out the form, sent the pictures and they sent me a new bag free of charge. Hopefully my experience of the first bag was just a fluke. If you are on the fence about purchasing this bag I would take the chance. The customer service at Amazon and Case Logic makes it easy to return if by chance you get a bad bag.

I bought this bag for 2 primary reasons: 1)contain my Mavic Pro and ALL of its associated accessories and 2)I like sling bags. Let me Begin by saying my Mavic Pro fit very nicely in the main compartment. Then in went 3 spare batteries, iPad Air with protective case, charger, 2 controllers (with stick covers), tablet holder (assembled), assorted cables, micoSD cards, USB charger, and then I ran out of stuff to put in it, and there is plenty of room to spare.

The bag slings over the right shoulder. The padding seems to be of very good quality, but I'm no expert. The zippers are okay and should hold up fine; I've seen better, and I've definitely seen worse. The top handle, on the other hand, seems to be very well constructed. The sling strap seems pretty good, too. The bag also comes with some sort of weather resistant cover. Nice touch!

The photo shows my first arrangement, which is very likely to change. The cool part, I can change it!
