Pros: Will hold everything plus some, good harness system
Cons: Makes it easy to overload yourself

This is an amazing bag. If you can stand the weight, you can carry a 4 X 5 field camera with some dark slides and a couple of lenses, plus a full medium format or professional DSLR system, plus some flashes and other accessories, plus a tripod, etc. etc.


It is large enough that you could carry just one camera outfit and enough gear for a minimalist overnight trip. The harness system really is good; built like a proper hiking backpack. It needs to be adjusted properly, and you must use the waist strap, or you will ruin your shoulders in short order.


Build quality, as with other Lowepro packs and bags I own, is excellent. I was going to say bags I own or have owned, but realized that I still own all the Lowepro bags I have bought--none of them, going back to an original Orion that is at least 15 years old, have ever fallen apart, unlike several other bags.


If you need a really huge camera backpack, this is a good investment. I haven't used mine as much as I thought I might, because it is too big for most of my day excursions, and for longer trips, I bring less camera gear and more other stuff.
