Bought this case after going through quite a few other cases and backpacks to hold our Canon t3i. Found that backpacks and sling bags may work great for hiking and getting your camera to a place where you are going to be taking pictures but not taking many pictures along the journey.

It was really nice to have the larger outer case to hold extra lenses, charger, memory cards, etc. and the camera in the protective sleeve. That got us from home to our destination, then when we were walking around we were able to keep the camera in the protective sleeve/holster and use the camera strap for easy access to any quick snap scenario we may have encountered. (We have a 1 year old so they are plentiful!)

It takes a long time to get the camera in and out of some of the other cases we tried and with the ability to hang the holster from the strap while you are taking pictures then just slide the camera back in and move on, this case has proved to be the best we have found.

I can see if you have quite a bit of gear (lenses, external flash, etc) this case may fall short on storage, but our setup with a 18-135mm zoom lens attached and a 55-250mm as a rare use lens, this case was leaps and bounds better than others we tried.

I bought this for my Nikon D5100. The case is very well built and looks pretty cool. It's nice that it does'nt advertise what's inside like "NIKON" or "CANON" on the outside. No point in giving potential thieves too much information. The case itself holds the camera securely and provides ample padding for any bumps that may occur. I'm not sure what would happen it were dropped though. It does have a solid plastic bottom that is nice for setting the bag down without it tipping over or getting wet from puddles or wet grass. The side pouches are big enough for a couple of extra lenses and hoods. The front pouch will hold small accessories and the rear pouch is good for thin items like lens pens and cleaning cloths. The inner pouch has a removable case that can stay with the camera. It's nice for shielding the camera from mist or dust. It has a loop for attaching it to the camera strap but this is a little awkward when taking pictures. It's best just to take it totally off the camera and store it in the case when taking photos.

Try to stuff a full frame DSLR in the Day Holster and it won't close. When you pull it out, the lens cap stays behind. I have a CANON 5D Mark III and the flap won't even come across to the other side when you try to shut the top of the Day Holster. This bag is more for the lower end Rebel SLR cameras and otherwise smaller SLR bodies. It would have been nice had Case Logic stated that it couldn't accommodate the full frame DSLRs and I would have expected such caveats and it was probably why I didn't bother to compare the dimensions.

Like any other camera bag, fit it going to depend upon your gear. For me, this is a great bag to go hiking with and keep everything securely in place. My Nikon D7000 with 18-105mm lens fit perfectly in the main compartment. There are two side slots for additional lenses/flashes, however, what you decide to put in these compartments will matter. I found that when I have my camera packed, along with a 50mm prime and 10-20mm wide angle, it's a bit difficult to get the lenses out as it's a rather right fit. The prime lens is small and it sits down further making it difficult to get out without removing the camera first. However, if you're using a smaller DSLR, say a 3100/5100 or the Canon Rebels, you won't have a problem at all fitting two lenses in comfortably. This is why I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. It really depends on your camera. If you have a larger DSLR, I really wouldn't plan on having the room to carry two additional lenses, so the description is somewhat misleading.

I love the fact that this has a separate sleeve for your camera. I was going to buy one anyhow and it's nice that it's included in this.

I have a 4/3 camera with some extra accessories. This case was a little awkward for me to use. A 100-300mm lens with the sun hood did not fit. I had to remove the hood and turn it around for it to partially fit. The lens hood was too wide and there is nothing that can be done to fix that.

Pull out soft camera pouch
Rubber bottom to protect the bottom of the case
Nice side pouches for camera lenses.

Small accessory zipper area - not much room for any accessories
Falls over easy due to small footprint
Zippers between carrying handle side pouches are too close together (can't easily distinguish between them without looking)
For me - lens pouches not wide enough

The travel pack case just didn't suit my needs. I kept trying to use it and tried to make it work, but in the end I ended up going with a backpack style camera case (Evecase - black and gary).

This case would be perfect for the person with a simple DLSR setup.

I am a Nikon-to-Micro Four Thirds convert! I bought this bag a few weeks ago with my new Panasonic G6. I also just bought an Olympus PEN E-P5 (ya, I know, very understanding wife!). The holster thing that comes out is ok, but it is a little fussy with the velcro piece and gets stuck on the inside of the bag a lot. It also takes up a lot of room on it's own. That is the only thing bad I have to say about the bag. The good thing about that is that you can totally remove the holster thing to fit more stuff in the middle of the bag.

Without the holster in there, listen to what I have in this bag right now:
In the middle compartment, I have:
1) Panasonic G6 with Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens attached (camera on it's side, still have 3/4 of an inch of space in front of the lens).
I put a couple of empty Panasonic lens bags on top of the G6 for padding.
2) Olympus PEN E-P5 with Panasonic 45-175 lens (and lens hood reversed on the lens), with bottom of the camera on top of the lens bags on top of the G6. That's a long lengs - sticks out from the camera almost 4 inches.
The middle cover closes fine, but there is no more room at the top of the middle compartment at all.
In the left side compartment, I have:
3) The Panasonic 14-42 kit lens (with lens hood reversed on the lens).
4) The Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 lens (with lens hood reversed on the lens).
5) The Olympus 17mm f1.8 "kit" lens (fantastic for a kit lens).
No really - they ALL fit in that one left-hand side of the bag.
In the right side compartment, I have:
6) A Nissin Speedlight Di 466.
7) The VF-4 viewfinder that came with the E-P5 kit.
The side compartments are perfectly shapped to hold the lenses snuggly, and they are padded very nicely.
In the back compartment, I have Body Caps, a 58mm Polarizing filter and some small paperwork.
In the front compartment, I have back lens caps, spare battery for G6, spare battery for P5, small lens brush and the thin foot base that came with the Nissin Speedlight.

TWO CAMERAS, FIVE LENSES, SPEEDLIGHT and misc smaller things! I just weighed the full bag and it is a total of about 6.2 pounds. I don't know for sure, but I think that is about the weight of my D7000 with vertical grip and 18-200 lens.

I know what you're saying - "this guy is full of it!" - I swear I'm not!!! All of that stuff is in there! There is not a lot of room left over, although I still could get a little more in the front and back compartments. No vaseline, no crowbar needed to get it in there.

I spent many hours looking at gear at Amazon for the new cameras, so I know what it's like when your trying to decide if something is right for you. I cannot recommend this bag enough. It is outstanding. Well padded, sturdy, SPACIOUS and the bottom even has some kind of hard rubber shell that would allow you to put it down on damp grass without leaking water through the bottom.

Now, my only dilema is, where am I going to put the 60mm Sigma lens I've been looking at?

Good luck and KEEP SPENDING ;-)

This Case Logic Travel Pack was the perfect solution for my DSLR needs. It's two cases in one. When I am going out for a day trip or something shorter, where I am primarily shooting with one lens, I just use the soft neoprene insert case. It keeps my camera ready at all times, is easy to use and it does an admirable job of protecting the lens and body. It's so light weight you barely know it's there. And, with a little clip that attaches to your neck strap of the camera, it hangs out of the way while you are shooting, but stays attached so you can't lose it. I love it. And when you get home, the smaller case fits right into the bigger one, it's genius!

The bigger travel bag is also really nice. It's small enough that it isn't heavy or a burden to travel with, but it's big enough to handle my DSLR with a telephoto lens attached (18-135mm), plus room for two more lenses. I really was looking for a lighter travel bag, not some big monster, and this fits "my" needs just about perfectly. I like the cordura nylon on this bag too, it looks and feels like it can take a beating, and the hard rubber bottom is both waterproof and a stable platform for standing the bag up. It's also great protection. I like how it looks, it's black and kind of stealthy. It also feels of quality - it's not flimsy or cheap. It's a bag that I feel was worth the money I paid for it.

Of course, in wanting a smaller travel bag, you have to make some concessions. Some might say the bag doesn't hold alot. I guess that is true if you travel with flash units, multiple lenses, filters and metering equipment. This is not the right bag for those people. I travel with at MOST two lenses, and one or two filters and that's it. If I ever decide to go with more than that, I'll look for a different bag.

Camera bags are very personal, each person probably wants something slightly different. Picking one out online is tough, but I feel with this bag, for me, I got it right the first time and am extremely satisfied with this particular Case Logic offering. But do yourself a favor and check out this entire line of camera bags. There are many to choose from, in different sizes and with different features. Hopefully you find the one that's right for you. Good luck.

This is a nice case but smaller than expected. When I first received it my first reaction was it is too small, I wanted to return it and get a Vanguard Adaptor backpack instead. Needless to say that after taking time to try fitting my gear my opinion quickly changed and I kept the case. My Nikon D7000 was able to fit with a Nikon 40mm micro attached. The day holster provides extra protection for the camera inside the case and is nice to have when you don't need the case, the camera will rest on your chest at an angle however (see their picture). The case is very well padded. It is small and light and ironically that's why I like it now. In the side pockets sits a Nikon 50mm 1.8 D with leftover space ( a telephoto lens will probably fill most of the pocket). In the other side pocket I was able to fit the camera charger (cable separately in the front pocket) and my canon G11 "advanced point and shoot" (bigger and thicker than your average point and shoot). So I was happy about that. The back zippered pocket was too small to fit my WhiBal white balance card which fits easily in the main compartment behind the camera. As you probably know by now the strap is the weakest feature of this case. It really has a different quality than the rest of the case. It is really low quality, looks weak, not well padded!! Basically cheap!! For the quality of the case it should be better. Does it bother me when I carry the case? No! Because the case with the above gear in it is surprisngly light and small and very convenient. Hope this helps.

If you are looking for a moderately sized case for your DSLR, definitely consider this one. It includes both a travel case and a padded day holster. I really like the day holster. It clips on to the neck strap so when I use my DSLR the holster stays with me and I'll never worry about leaving it behind. The travel case is definitely on the smaller side, compared to some of the other cases I looked at. And for me that's a good thing. I have one camera and two lenses and this cases fits all that with room for another lense or other accessories. The camera in the day holster fits in the middle of the case with the lenses stored on the sides. The front has a good sized pocket for accessories. If you are an amateur photographer like me and only have a couple of lenses to carry around consider this case.

I looked around at several cases before I chose this one. I wanted something to carry what I needed but without being too big. I first of all tried the Case Logic Sling, but that was way too big and did not have as much storage as this bag. In the day cover I can fit my D3100 with either the 18-55mm Zoom or the 55-200mm zoom (with hood) no problem, they both fit perfectly.

When I want to store my 55-200mm, I take the hood off and slide the lens into one of the side pockets lens cap first, I then put the hood on top so the lens opening goes over the back lens cap, it fits perfectly this way. You can get the lens with hood in all in one, but it is pretty tight to get out once it is in, so I found this the best way.

In the front pocket I can keep a lens brush, spare battery and charger, then in the back pocket a USB/SD card reader and spare SD cards, filters etc.

I plan to put a Nikon SB-600 flash in other side pocket and possibly a 35mm prime lens. Amazing how much you can fit into such a compact bag which still feels real light when loaded up.

The day cover slides out easily to use as just that, a day cover. This bag is great, you won't be disappointed.
