Pros: Great, small size, excellent build quality, lots of nice touches
Cons: Bulky shoulder strap

First of all, it just doesn't make sense to rate a camera bag's image quality, does it...?


That said, this is one great bag. If you have a fairly compact setup, it will fit perfectly in this bag. I have used a number of bags and usually alternate between shoulder bags and backpacks, however on getting a Pentax K-7 with a couple of the lovely DA Limited primes, I wanted a compact shoulder bag to use both for day trips as well as for travel. This bag holds the camera and three lenses, yet still has room left for chargers, cords, filters etc etc. The design is very well thought out and the little touches, such as a memory card wallet and an accessory pouch, makes it easy to plan and pack the gear for any type of trip, while still keeping everything organized.


The shoulder strap is a little overpadded and I might end up replacing it with a Domke strap, and the lack of a method for securing a tripod underneath the bag is a bit of a shame, then I guess for its primary audience that's not much of an issue...

Pros: light, small, capable
Cons: just barely holds my 80-200/2.8

I love this bag. I wanted something a little more modern than my old canvas Domke bag, but I didn't want the structure and excessive padding of a traditional camera bag. In addition, living in the Pacific NW, I wanted something with great weather protection (rain...). The all weather cover provides just that. This the almost perfect bag for my D-200, 18-70 and 80-200/2.8. The long lens just barely fits inside the case, it would be perfect if this bag was half an inch taller.
