    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    For many years, I’ve bought and carried JanSport Backpacks (JanSport Classic SuperBreak Backpack) because they are strong, sturdy and have a long life. When I received this Case Logic CPL-108GY Backpack, I wanted to test its durability. First, I removed all the padded compartments/dividers and used it to carry novels, notebooks, pencil pouches, etc., to work, church, and most everywhere I go. For nearly four months, I have carried this backpack faithfully every day. The zippers, buckles and seams have remained intact. None have torn or ripped apart.

    I own numerous electronic devices including several digital cameras, a portable DVD player, a portable film projector, portable Bluetooth speaker, and several wireless headphones. The Case Logic CPL-108GY Backpack makes it easy to carry all of these. The padded compartments/dividers inside the backpack are easy to remove and reinsert. There is a diagram that comes with the backpack; it explains every part of the backpack, which has a multitude of compartments and pockets–more than I will ever use. If you lose the diagram, there is one on Amazon’s website for this product.

    I took this backpack with me when I photographed animals at the Norfolk Zoo. I own a Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR [Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm IS II Lens and EOS HD Movie Mode (Black)], which my parents bought me for Christmas two years ago. I was able to carry extra flash memory cards [SanDisk 32GB SDHC Flash Memory Card (SDSDB-032G-B35)] inside slots that are provided for them. Thankfully, this backpack has its own blue weather hood. It began raining rather hard at the zoo. I was able to put the hood over the backpack with little difficulty.

    I highly recommend the Case Logic CPL-108GY Backpack for carrying all your electronics. It is strong, durable, sturdy and should last many years with proper treatment. It reminds me very much of my JanSport Backpacks, which I have always bought. I gave a CPL-108GY Backpack to my girlfriend, Tammy, who is an amateur photographer, for Valentine`s Day. She also likes it very much because of its multitude of compartments/dividers. Also, she said it was lightweight, but strong, compared to other backpacks she has purchased.

    This is a medium sized camera backpack.. a perfect size for my amateur needs. I don’t want something huge, but need something to travel with that has room for my camera, a lense, and some other non-photography related stuff. I like the protected sleeve for the tablet!

    I also like that this doesn’t have a huge logo advertising Nikon or other big camera name…proclaiming that I have an expensive camera on board. This looks like a generic backback.

    One feature it doesn’t have, is a sling option with rapid access to the camera. I like the sling bags that you wear over one shoulder and you can rotate horizontally in front of you for fast access to a camera from a door on the side. Some bags allow you to convert to this configuration. This one does not.

    The internal padding is of good quality and very flexible with regard to changing configuration. There is room for all my gear if I need it (I am a casual photographer) including an SLR, extra lense, flash, sd cards and batteries. You can attach a tripod to the outside if you want.

    There is a rain cover that is easy to get to and stretch over the bag.. a very nice feature. I am not sure how water repellent the bag itself is without the cover.. not something I want to test!

    The best features though for me are that it is fairly compact, anonymous, and has room for everything a traveling amateur photographer needs. This is perfect to take with when being a tourist and wanting access to your camera, accessories, travel book, snacks etc etc.
