    The price! Lots of different pockets large and small, a handle and a strap and well padded. The three main compartments are adjustable because the two padded dividers mount with Velcro and can be moved. The tops of the dividers fold down creating a second tier about 3 inches deep. There are two compartments sized for lens filters and a zippered front outside pocket about 10″ x 6″ that’s shallow, but you can stuff it like a pouch.

    The overall quality is good but not special, using plastic to connect the strap when metal would have been better. Only time will tell and if the strap does break loose it’s repairable (by using large keyrings) and I’ve still got the handle until I do, but I don’t believe the bag will ever become heavy enough. The strap works well and because you can slide the padding you’re able to able to wear it at whatever height you choose, off of one shoulder, worn across your chest it could be longer or changed for another strap you probably already have.

    This bag would be weather resistant as it has folding flaps at the hinge that come down at the sides to the inside but not weather proof and I sprayed mine with Scotchgard, this having a canvas rather than a ripstop plastic feel.

    I have no problem with the plastic buckle because it’s the same type used on many travel and briefcases you’ve likely seen many times, as hard as I pull it, mine won’t come apart and all the stitching is good.

    At this price I really think this is good and probably all I need. My Nikon D5200, 18-55, 70-300 lenses, 8 filters (two cases), hood and all smaller accessories (batteries, cards, cables, etc) plus blower, cloths and cleaners fit with room to spare but snugly and that second tier could still carry a sandwich, on the other hand it’s not big and bulky. The inside measurements are 10″ x 4″ x 8″ D but understand that with the padding and this being soft sided you could squeeze another inch or more each way if needed.

    Another AmazonBasics product I would recommend is this 70-inch Adjustable Pistol Grip Head Tripod.

    I’d recommend this bag unless you’d prefer metal instead of plastic strap rings and hooks and polyester/Denier material, which will probably cost significantly more. I hope this helps you to choose your online purchase.

    *Update* 7/31/15 I just want to say that this bag is holding up. It’s been used constantly and has been in 13 states, it gets dirty, but I can clean it up and it’s like new again.

    What I really like about this bag, is that I can change the compartment size because it uses Velcro. My camera feels nice and secure. There are enough compartments to hold additional items, as well as my iPad (which is a plus). It fits my camera with the lens attached to it, as well as an additional lens which is stored in the other compartment. You can’t beat this price! I am satisfied!
