Pros: Very soft padding and nice viewscreen protector cloth
Cons: No feet, opens backwards

The Rezo series is designed for "Digital" SLR cameras. I admit it, I bought it over the traditional styled bags in the very beginning because I got suckered in by the word Digital. That is not to say the bag is bad, in fact, it does a very fine job protecting all my gear. The shoulder strap is VERY comfortable and grips on well so it won't fall off. The Digital aspect of it is met by having a microfiber-like piece of cloth attached to the bag that acts as a LCD screen protector. After having used the bag for more than a year, I gotta say it does its job well. The bag does not have rubberized feet, so it's not something that you would want to put on the ground outside. There is an included all weather cover that is hidden under the faux front of the bag. The quirky part about this bag is that the main compartment opens backwards, kinda defeating the purpose of the snap on cover. According to Lowepro, it's supposed to be for easy access, which I didn't find it particularly any easier. Specific to this Rezo 180 model, it will fit a Canon 20D(no grip) + walkaround lens + flash + 2 other long lenses around 58mm threads (anything bigger would be a tight fit). This bag would actually suit a XTi better than a 20D. If you're just starting out with a small DSLR and a couple basic lenses and don't plan on upgrading for a while, it will be a good container. Otherwise, consider the bigger 190 or the classic series.
