    This review is from: DSLR Slr Camera Bag, MOACC Grey Digital Video Recorder Ptotography Canvas Sling Backpack Protective Rucksack Waterproof Shoulder Messenger with Shockproof Insert for Sony Canon Nikon Olympus Pentax (Electronics)
    I’m conflicted about this bag because on the one hand, I love it. The canvas is sturdy, the removable protection is able to be reconfigured and is thick enough to keep my camera safe, and the pockets are abundant, even on the smallest size bag that I ordered. The strap is adjustable, comfortable for long amounts of carrying, and the bag itself is attractive. It doesn’t scream “camera bag!’ and that’s one of the reasons I was drawn to it. However, the problems I faced seem to be problems encountered by others as well, so the cons are definitely something to consider.

    It’s a shame because my complaints sit squarely on the improper shipment and storage of the bag. The bag arrived in a box and then wrapped very tightly in an inner plastic package (marked with shipping from China) and it’s this folded over, ultra tight packing, plus I assume poor, long term storage or initial shipping conditions from overseas that creates a lot of the problems. As others described, my bag arrived covered in rust spots (the reviewer that mentions dried blood was probably also referring to rust spots, since that’s what it looks like…hopefully anyway) on the front and sides. Upon further inspection, you can clearly see that the buckles are starting to rust and the exact places where the buckles were so tightly pressed against the canvas in the packaging are where the rust spots are located.

    But, I needed my bag for a vacation that was starting the day after I received it, so I decided to deal with the rust spots so long as the bag was functional. At first, this seemed to be the case; however, the rust is insidious and unfortunately, on day two one of my vacation the pocket snaps broke, as it turned out, the snaps were also rusted through and even minor use was causing them to pop off the canvas. Given that the bag is all snaps (the buckles are mostly for design purposes) that was a deal breaker.

    I really am dismayed by this, and have debated on sending it back for a return or for a refund. If properly shipped and stored I can see this bag lasting for a long time, as lots of my purses, bags, jackets, etc. have snaps or metal components that obviously don’t rust in between seasons or long periods of non-use. Part of me likes the bag so much that I want to try again and hope for a better draw from the storage selection, yet with quite a few reviews mentioning similar problems, I’m not optimistic.

    EDIT: Okay, so I decided to get the BBK 3 a little bit after I made this review because of how big the 4 was. The BBK 3 is definitely a reasonably sized bag for every-day carrying and a lot less like luggage (like the BBK4). I’ve bought two of them so far though and they both have rust on the snap closures! NOT COOL. I don’t know what this company’s deal is with this! Both my bags came out of New Jersey, so maybe the warehouse there has a humidity problem? Were the bags like this when the seller sent them to amazon? I don’t know, but now I’m stuck with having to decide whether or not to send my SECOND bag back and hoping for a rust free one the third time around or just sucking it up and trying to get as much rust off the snaps as possible. Downgraded my review to two stars because of this; the whole reason why I went with this listing was because it seemed a little more reliable than some of the other bags on amazon.

    For it’s price range, I’d say it’s the best you can get. I just got this, so I can’t say anything about using it yet; here are my first impressions though:

    The BBK4 (the one I have) is a certifiable boat. It’s like a camera yacht. I’d say it almost is more of a small duffle bag than a messenger bag. This bag could be used for storage as well as carrying your camera around. There’s more than enough space for my Nikon D3300 and four medium-to-large lens sized compartments worth of stuff. My D3300 sits pretty low inside the bag with its kit lens/hood (about 6 in. long), and I could probably just barely manage to fit two D3300s on top of each other with a 2-1/4 in. long prime on each camera (pointing down) and still close the zipper. A nikon D70 (about 7 in. long with lens hood and kit lens) looks a little more natural. The BBK4 definitely likes bigger cameras (forget a mirrorless).

    I could probably just barely fit a 15 in. laptop into the laptop slot, but I definitely could put it between the slot and the camera insert.

    Talking about the color is almost pointless because different computer monitors render colors differently. That being said, on my old, cheap, but calibrated CRT monitor, the bag looks pretty true to color. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then look up “computer monitor color calibration”. You’re welcome for the headache. To try to put it another way, the grey is kind of medium-dark, the tan is more medium than dark, and the brown is a nice medium as far as brightness goes. The bag does look very nice.

    As for build quality, this bag is kind of interesting. The stitching seems pretty good throughout, and the thread looks to be pretty thick and strong. Only time will tell, though. I would like to point out that, if the stitching did break, you can just sew it back together. If you don’t know how to sew, then it would be a good excuse to learn (or get someone else to do it).

    The quality of the materials varies. The canvas its self is not bad, but not amazing either. It shouldn’t be a problem if you don’t rube the bag on the pavement or anything.
    The bright leather (that the logo is stamped on) is actually really good and thick. I don’t think it’s at any risk of tearing. I’m 99.999999% sure that all the leather on this bag is real.
    The snaps are good, but I could see the ones on the side tearing out of the canvas if you man handled them too much. The same problem goes for the grommets through with the buckles attach. They aren’t really under any stress, so I think they’ll be fine.
    The metal is impressively strong. I don’t see this bending any time soon.
    The material that the strap, handle, and front straps are made out of is decent. It would be stronger if it was a tighter weave, but it should do the job as is.
    The dark brown leather is thin. I think it’s possibly the weakest material on this bag. Fortunately, it’s only there fore decoration, but I wouldn’t be too rough with it. That being said, it should be all right for every day use. The only thing to note with this is that the leather on the handle might actually be okay because it is sewn tighter than the other areas. You aren’t going to accidentally tear it with regular handling. Also, the leather on the bottom feels like it should be okay too so long as you don’t drag it along the pavement or anything. Actually, my only real problem with this bag is that the leather on the handle isn’t centered–my OCD doesn’t deserve this! 😀 All joking aside, if that’s the only construction flaw that’s on this bag, I’d call this a win considering the price.
    Ironically, the strongest material on this bag is the inner lining that can be found on the camera insert and all the outer pockets. They used the good stuff for this part, and that’s great considering that this will probably get the most unavoidable wear and tear from taking things out/putting them back into the bag. It looks water…

    SNAP!, June 5, 2016

    I have tried something like 9, maybe 10 camera bags in the last year, never quite able to find one which can fit everything I need.
    This bag, however, blew them all out of the water. This is NOT “a boat,” as stated by another reviewer. It’s the size of a regular messenger bag, with far more thought put into the space it has. To wit:
    1. It simply has deep pockets with the ability to velcro in the dividers for many configurations.
    2. This bag has a nice, thick leather+canvas strap that is fully adjustable for crossbody use.
    3. The bag comes packed inside the camera block, which seems very durable and waterproof. I did, however, spray my whole bag, top to bottom, with waterproofer (I used Kiwi) just for the extra protection.
    4. The two side pockets are perfect for cell phones, small notepads, pens & pencils, wallets, etc etc. I used one side for my extra batteries and two chargers, and the other for cleaning essentials. If you have a smaller water bottle, you could jam it in one pocket, but I’d recommend getting a water bottle holder that attaches with a caribiner for a little more control over it.
    5. The buckles are heavy duty snaps, and they run directly over the front pockets to keep their contents safe from falling out. The front pockets are very deep and great for quick access items. I’ve got my cards, a larger notebook and pen, reference book (just in case!), and a couple of extra lens caps in mine right now.
    6. Upon opening the “camera box” aka the soft blue box (which does have a piece that velcros the whole box shut and is made of waterproof material) I found several dividers ready to be velcroed into place. I bought this bag mainly because it holds more than the average bag, and it did not disappoint! After I configured it, my bag holds 2 Canon DSLR, 3 lenses, filters, an arm strap, a neck strap, accessories (the tulip, extra microcloths, Q-Tips for cleaning, some personal items), lens caps, a raincoat in a bag (it’s the size of my hand), and an SD card case–just inside the 5-6 sections of the box. I was also able to fit a 3-subject notebook, a folder, and a large calendar behind the box, where most people would put a tablet or something. I also threaded my Ipod headphones through the back so I could easily reach it when I wanted it. I do have a 32 oz Nalgene small-mouth bottle and a Nalgene neoprene bottle carrier which clips to the strap very easily.
    7. There is a loop on the back for tripods to be carried, which I have already found very helpful! It’s a lot easier to carry a tripod when you can just slide it on through the loop and go.
    I’m 5’7″, 138 lbs and this bag doesn’t weigh me down or look oversized when I wear it. It’s a comfortable bag, all of the snaps are very tight and the shoulder strap is fantastic–wide, made of two fabrics, with an extra neck support area that’s also wrapped when not being used. This bag is very functional and it looks good, too. I’d recommend this to anyone who has a need for more than just the basics.
