The bag is made of good quality material with nice cushioning, and thick shoulder straps with cushioning to make carrying easy and comfortable. It fits nicely over the shoulder and adjusts to fit various body types and frame sizes.
However, The inner compartment comes out, but is so awkward and difficult to get out and put back in that it's not a positive feature. To get it out one must reach in under the outer lid and kind of pull back across the velcro, putting in is the reverse.
There are two compartments in the inner bag that are adjustable and the inserts are rigid, which is a step above for me compared to other camera bags I have tried because it seems to hold the lens more securely.
The accessory pouches are very flat but good for things like tablet, wallet, and phone.
The size is large enough to hold a camera body, with attached lens, and probably two smaller lenses. It's easy to get in and out of to change the lens on the go. In the top there are three little memory card holders.
Overall I give this bag a four, it has more pros than cons, really just the weird configuration to take the inner pouch out, so I wouldn't even bother.
The bag is really unusually designed. One side has a couple of clips that close a sort of top piece over a flap and zipper. The flap is designed for a phone, and the zipper reveals a compartment for small items like flash cards. This would seem to be the side that opens the internal bag - but it isn't! Instead, the entire top of the bag unzips from what would be the opposite side (the one that is next to the body when carried). It takes a little getting used to. There are two additional clips on each side; the four together make for a compression strap support system, which is more frequently seen on backpacks, and does provide more strength. The front straps are useful for clipping in a small tripod. Once you finally figure out how to open the zipper, the inside is revealed to be a bag-within-a-bag. There is a removable inner "pod", which I found very hard to remove and replace - but it does render good protection. The inside comes with four moveable dividers that are "origami inspired", which means that they have a lot of folds so they can be reshaped. I found that they do a good job of dividing the case, but the round shape makes them somewhat less useful. There is plenty of room for my Nikon camera with the extended lens, and the power pack to recharge the batteries. In the top flap one will find an additional zippered compartment for flash cards and small items. Finally, there is a large slot (between the "pod" and the outer shell), that can contain an IPad or Android pad up to about 10 inches. Both the inner "pod" and the outer shell feature a handle. There is just one shoulder strap for carrying the outer shell.
The inner dimensions are 9.4 X 5.9 X 8.7 inches. External size is 12.2 X 13 X 6.3 (but it sure seems larger).
There are several things I like: The construction is very sturdy, with good material and stitching, and it will provide excellent protection. The divider system is a bit clumsy, but works well enough. The adjustable shoulder strap is comfortable. The handle is good for carrying. The outer zipper pocket is large enough for keys and other loose items.
But there are some drawbacks to the design. I could not find a way to make it simple to use; the bag is so bulky that I keep hitting it with my arm. I think that the size is just a bit too large - it needs to be a backpack at this size. The compression straps can be loosened to make the bag somewhat larger, but in practice that doesn't make much difference - the inner "pod" doesn't expand. The "origami" dividers have a lot of velcro, and I found it somewhat inconvenient to reshape them - it takes some effort. And last, that inner "pod" is too difficult to remove and reinstall - so I won't be using it separately.
Summary: A bit bulky, but good protection. I consider this a "niche" bag, that some people will like, but many will not. Only moderately recommended if you have to carry a couple of lenses and cannot use a more convenient sized bag.
The Velcro on the dividers is hard to separate. It takes some elbow grease to get the desired layout. The satchel is of good quality material and easier to carry by the handle rather than the shoulder strap. It opens in an odd way from the back, but it's supposed to help if a tablet is also in the satchel.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask; I'd be happy to help.
