If, like me, you are a hobbyist, it's probably more than you need.
Super well built. Excellent construction and design.
Very comfortable, even with a heavy load.
Excellent protection for camera equipment.
Not nearly enough room for non-camera stuff.
A few pockets are hard to find, and some zippers are very hard to pull because of the protective flaps that keep rain out.
So, if you are a professional photographer trekking in Nepal, this is the bag you want.
If you are a camera buff who wants to carry his camera body, two lenses and a bunch of non-camera stuff on a daily basis, this is not the bag you want.
Last thought: If you live in a concealed carry state, the pocket at the bottom for the rain cover is well hidden and could hold a compact body fire arm. It's the perfect angle for a quick grab while wearing the bag.
The build quality of this bag is astounding. I bought mine in March of 2007 and still shows no signs of wear. The stitching of all the components is done with heavy duty thread. The outer shell is made from something similar to DuPont's Cordura (if it isn't actually Cordura). The Velcro pieces are definitely high quality and will last a long time.
The bag is comfortable and holds all of my gear, which includes 3 lenses, 2 flashes, 2 Canon bodies, and lots of misc gear. Plus the built in tripod holster makes it simple to transport it all at the same time. And when I'm not using my bag as a camera bag, the removable modular storage area and shelf make for a huge open bag to store all of whatever.
The portion of the bag which holds the laptop is very well padded. Not just on the front and back, but on the BOTTOM, which is most important since that is where most of the impact is likely to occur. It is rated for 15", but I have fit 17" laptops in there with minimal effort. And when you're carrying that, plus camera gear, plus whatever else, the removable waist strap and sternum strap make load bearing bearable.
There are only a few slight design flaws that I have noticed with this bag.
First, there are pockets on the outside which seem like they were designed with something very specific in mind. I haven't been able to figure out what that is yet. the zippered pockets are triangular with a taper upward. I can fit a wallet and a passport in one at the same time, but that is it. Nothing is triangular. The lower pockets are made of mesh with an elastic band at the top to keep things in. This kind of pocket is very common in backpacks, but again Lowepro went with a triangular shape, this time with the taper downward. I can fit a very small cell phone in one pocket, but nothing else. I have no idea what they deigned it to carry.
Secondly, although the design of the tripod holster is perfect, the design of the cinching elastic bands at the top and bottom are impossible to figure out. I have scrutinized them to no end and still cant figure them out. There is a squeeze and slide device, and a buckle, and the elastic band, but they are not setup in an obvious manner. I end up just wrapping them around my tripod and making sure the center band is very tight.
Third, the rings on the shoulder straps were poorly designed. Though their triangular shape may make for a stronger design with just plastic, the small size and straight edges make it impossible to fit any kind of carabiner on the rings that can carry any serious weight. And of course the straight edges of the rings make an awkwardly small carabiner into an awkwardly small in the way carabiner when you are walking. Thankfully, they included 4 loops of nylon fabric on the waist strap and 1 on each of the attachment points for the tripod so that people like me can carry larger carabiners. This problem could have been avoided if they had used circle rings instead of triangular ones.
Lastly, this bag is definitely not for the quick draw. The shape of the zipper for entry into the bottom compartment is such that you have to fight to get it open and closed when there is gear inside. And if you are carrying a tripod in the holster, forget about it. You may as well take everything out before starting and leave the stuff for later inside the bag.
Overall, I would recommend this bag to anyone. I have recommended it to 2 other people and when they looked at mine in person they were sold immediately.
My gripes are that this is somewhat limited in using it as a combo business-laptop-camera bag. Other than the laptop area, there's no place to stash a spiral-bound notebook. Also, the upper compartment is pretty limited in size; fitting a couple of computer accessories (small graphics tablet and headset) along with noise canceling headphones, a paperback book (forget about hard-cover) and airline carry-on essentials pushes it to the limit.
Would I buy it again? Yes. Hence the 4 stars.
This bag looks nice and seems to be well made, I really want to keep it, but because it is so difficult to access the camera gear I am going to return it to Amazon.
However, it's too big to carry around when sightseeing once I get to my destination. So, what I did was get the Slingshot 200 as well. That holds all my camera stuff (DSLR, three lenses, flash, mini tripod, cables, small point and shoot, video camera). I took the camera insert out of the Compurover, and the Slingshot fits inside of the Compurover. When I get to where I'm going, I can take the Slingshot out and carry that around. This works pretty well. You could probably do the same with a less expensive backback than the Compurover, but the computer pocket with the side access is a nice feature.
