    This is my first video review. Apologies for the amateurish “ummm”s as well as the quality of the video (I had to use my iPod nano to record this since my regular camera was being used as a prop in this video)

    This is a great bag to take to an event or on a vacation. It isn’t going to carry every bit of equipment you own, but it will handle every bit of equipment that you’ll need for a specific situation.

    I own a Nikon D-80. I can easily pack the camera with my lens of choice on (including my largest telephoto which is 55-200mm with lens hood) with enough space left over to fold the camera strap neatly; one additional lens in its padded case; my SB-800 flash and my small HD video camera. Of course, instead of the video camera, I could have packed a third lens instead but, when I travel or attend an event I don’t like to switch lenses too often to avoid exposing the sensor.

    If you have a larger body pro-camera, I think that you’d be limited to the camera, one other lens, and the flash unit, with a bit of space left over, but I wasn’t able to test that theory.

    In addition, I packed a small hard case containing extra memory cards for each camera; extra batteries for each camera, my SB-800 flash, my whi-bal, my color checker; a polarizing filter, and lens cloths. I also packed a small flash light, asthma inhaler, a pen and small notebook. I have the feeling that the large side pockets are meant for carrying chargers, but I prefer to have the space for personal items so I don’t have to carry a purse. (My Video camera charger would fit easily, but the D-80 charger which has a long cord would take up too much space).

    The design is very practical and well thought out:

    * The interior is Velcro-partitioned, which means you can re-arrange it any way you want or remove it all or in part. I find the default configuration perfect.

    * The entire inside is lined in orange for contrast which makes it very easy to see what’s where (have you noticed that all photographic equipment is black?)

    * There are zippered compartments in the front, on the inside top cover, and to either side.

    * All the zippers run smoothly and are sturdy and easy to grasp.

    * The larger side pockets have smaller inside pockets for securing and isolating small items such as filters or the small individual memory card holders, credit cards, etc.

    * The unit is lightweight, amazingly well padded, and well balanced. All these characteristics contribute to the comfort of the person carrying it.

    * I feared that the angled design might make it unstable when putting it down but, since the bottom weighs more than the top, it doesn’t tip over.

    * It slides very comfortably under an airline seat and still leaves room for your feet.

    * It can be carried either hands-on using the handle, or over the shoulder where the non-slip padding keeps it secure. The strap can be removed easily, but I don’t know why you’d want to.

    * I like to extend the shoulder strap to the maximum and slip it over my head and onto the opposite shoulder for security and this strap is long enough to do so comfortably and that extra padding comes in handy against my neck. When using my previous bag, this was sheer torture after a while, but it isn’t that uncomfortable with this one. For some reason, it seems to distribute the weight better.

    It is the most practical and comfortable camera case I have ever owned. I’ve ruled out “backpack” camera bags because they wrinkle my clothing and are more “dressed down” than I care to be. I’ve larger and smaller cases, but this is the perfect size. It’s professional-looking, but neither flashy nor boring. I’m sincerely pleased with it and I highly recommend it.
