On the negative side, I do share the sentiment about the clip others have voiced. It looks fancy but you have to be careful to align it correctly or it not only will not close, but it will get stuck good. The shoulder padding could have been a bit more generous and the hardware could be a bit "beefier".
Has laptop pocket.
Somewhat adjustable, can fit most lenses.
Side pockets are convenient.
Fairly durably and attractive.
I've used it several times a week for 3 years and not a single part has broken or even shown much wear.
The main pocket doesn't seal. The cover just velcros over it, but if keep any small items in there, they can fall out. Also exposes your camera and lenses to humidity and potentially rain/dirt.
There is NO WAY to make this thing stand upright when you put it down. The weight distribution of your gear will make it fall forward every time, possibly dumping everything in your loose pockets onto the ground.
Shortage of storage options, the main pocket is the only place that will hold lenses or bodies. A large body (1D, 5Dm2) can basically take up so much of the main pocket that unless you're putting tiny 50mm lenses in there, the body (and attached lens) might be the only thing that will fit. This makes its usefulness very limited. Don't count on having much room for any other large items like speedlights.
The accessory pocket is OK, and has a zipper, but none of the inner pockets seal at all. It has pouches for memory cards, batteries, filters, which are fine. But as soon as you put the bag down, it will tip over and dump everything out of these organized pockets and when you unzip it, everything will be in a big pile. Not cool, especially if you're trying to hold glass filters or something.
I'm sure this is an issue with most messenger bag styles but leaning over will make this thing swing like a big pendulum and crash into stuff, especially if you have a laptop or heavy lenses in there.
I don't recommend the single strap if you carry your laptop and a large body + lenses in here. It will make your shoulder sore quickly. Get a backpack.
I went to a convention and wanted to take my sony A7 with 3 lenses. And space to put all of the flyers and brochures that I would invariably pick up. This bag was perfect for the job. It held all my gear with space to spare. I took:
Sony A7 body with a Sigma 12-24 Canon mount lens with the Canon to Sony adapter and lens hood.
Sony 24-240mm lens with lens hood
Zeiss 55mm 1.8 lens with lens hood
and a water bottle in one of the 2 outside mesh pockets
There was still space inside for 1 more medium lens or 2 small lenses.
By the end of the convention it also held a free t-shirt that i picked up.
about 10 catalogs ranging from 4 pages to over 100 pages adding an extra 3-5 lbs
and there was still space left. more catalogs could have gone in the laptop pocket. and more stuff in the front compartment.
I really like the top zipper pocket that allows me to have access to the camera gear without having to open the top flap. The strap is comfortable even after a full day.
The only complaints and the only reason keeping the 5th star away were:
It will not stand up, it always topples over to the front.
there is no way to completely seal the camera compartment. there is a zipper access flap on the top but the main flap just has a clip. If you will be going to windy and dusty areas, (sports played on the dirt such as motorcross, or going to the beach. Dirt and Sand will find a way in.)
