    The technical details of this specify it will fit a 17″ Laptop. Definitely not true, as that would be the DKS-25 ( […] ) . However the bag itself is great. Luckily, used it to fit my smaller work laptop, which fits perfectly (14.6″).

    The compartments themselves are well padded, and the accessibility to the sides as well as front zippers is awesome! Being able to change from a shoulder-slung to a cross-slung to a backpack is also great :) The top compartment holds a surprising amount of stuff as well.

    Total stuff in the bag currently:
    Canon T3i + 18-55 kit lens + Hood
    Canon 55-250mm Lens + Hood
    Canon 50mm 1.8 Lens + Hood
    Macro Extenders
    Ring Light + battery pack + DC adapter (cheap macro stuff)
    Polarizing filter/UV filter
    2 Portable HDDs
    AA Battery Charger
    Phone Charger Cables + Wall adapters
    Laptop Charger cables
    14.6″ IBM Laptop

    So, it does fit a significant amount of stuff. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase!

    They have thought of everything … holds my laptop with adequate padding, my dslr, lenses, accessories and even the tripod … comes with a rain cover that i have already used and kept everything dry … love the versitility of backpack straps or sling back conversion or waste straps or chest strap plus it has a handle on the top, a handle on the side and a pocket to slide the bag on a trolley type piece of luggage … was tired of using 2 bags while traveling with my laptop and my camera … this solved everything with adequate room and room for more camera accessories plus with all the velcro I can reconfigure the insides if necessary … it is not too bulky or too heavy and can be used while traveling, biking, walking, hiking, etc. …. in love with the versitility

    I think I gave this pack a test most people would cringe thinking about, so here’s my story. I am a professional photographer. I recently took a train trip from Grand Rapids, Michigan to Portland, Oregon on Amtrack. 2500 miles on a train with a 3 hour layover in Chicago Union Station. I carried this pack, never putting it down for 6 solid days with a 15″ laptop, two large DSLR’s, battery chargers,smart phone and “travling junk”. The compartments are interchangeable inside the main camera compartment and easily changed around for the needs of the kind of lenses you want to carry etc. The velcro could be just a tick more friendly but it got the job done. I easily carried two DSLR’s with lenses and an extra telephoto lens. I read a review the laptop compartment was “tight” so two days before the trip I stuffed the laptop compartment with photo albums to stretch it out and it worked like a charm. If I had it to do over again, I would have stretched it for a week. The laptop made it safe and sound and so did the cameras. The pack is a little heavier than I thought it would be but you need more than a feather to protect this kind of equipment. It came quickly and I’m very happy with it. You cant beat this for the price.
