Pros:
Cons:

This bag is perfect for me to fit a dSLR, small camcorder, flash, picture storing/viewing device, 3-4 lenes, cleaning kits, batteries/charger, and filters. Its outer repels water and has dry compartment inside. It has a nice padded shoulder strap. I wish I had bought this sooner.

Cons:

So You specified the problem. This bag is for lugging to/from a place in Godforsaken countrysides. But when You are somewhere You don't want to lug anymore, but to apply a filter, change lenses, put on hoods, keep on changing CF cards and batteries... This is the point where all viewed products die, because You have to open large compartments and let the dust slip in to hurt all innocent equipments You don't want to use - or let the innocent gear slip away. And the vertical size is tempting to use FILO methods (First In, Last Out) with three hands.

Pros:
Cons:

This is the bag I use when I need to lug all my gear. It's got plenty of room for 2 non-pro sized SLR bodies, 5-6 lenses, a large flash and a ton of accessories like teleconverters, filters, close-up lenses, lens hoods, media, cables, etc. A rain cover is stored in a zippered pocket at the back. The front pocket is padded (side ones are not). The interior is totally customizable. A "film" pack is held in the lid with Velcro so that it can easily be removed. There are straps to hold your tripod to the top rear or bottom front as well. Highly recommended.
