Pros: Pro bag
Cons: top lid, AWC system

This is a great bag, and i would recommend it to people who need a hard to break bag for their gear. The build quality is exellent. But you have to now what you need and where you have it. This is the kind of bag you can shove your hand in and find exactly the piece of equipment you need, super fast, without ever taking your eyes of the action, the design is extremely well done. But if youre the kind of photographer that needs to see what to take out of your bag, then this might not be your choice.


The top opening is not big enough for a camera with an attached lens, so you have to open the lid, but thats more faster anyway.


The All weather cover requires you to detach the shoulder strap to put it on, but you can access your gear really easy even with the AWC on, so its not really a problem, i had the AWC on alle the time, because the bag works just as well anyway.

Pros: Well organized and easy access to what you need when you are shooting
Cons: Somewhat bulky

This bag is one step above the smallest in this line, but has a great amount of storage capacity. You have room for a dSLR with a zoom attached, extra lenses, a storage device, flash and other accessories. I am even able to fit in a small back-up digicam. There is also a tethered (but removable) wallet for memory cards.


The camera and accessories in the main storage compartment can be accessed by opening the top flap which has both a velcro and snap-buckle closure. One of the things I like best about this bag is that you can access your camera through a zippered closure in the top without opening the bag or removing if from your shoulder. This is great when you want quick access to take a shot. Getting the camera back in can be a little tricky though.


The only shortcoming of this bag is that when you sling it accross your hip, it is a bit bulky, but if you want something with quick access and lots of room for everything, this bag has it all.
