So I got suckered by the ads for this bag. I wanted something sturdy to take on a treck in New Zealand. When looking for a bag, I wanted something that not only protected my camera gear but also had enough space to hold food, water, extra clothing etc. I probably should have ordered a bag more specific to hiking, but I wanted something small. I liked the construction of the Klettern. The material is strong and the straps held all my stuff together. I believe another reviewer mentioned that the camera compartment is small. I agree. I have a Nikon D800 with a couple of lenses. It was a struggle to close the zipper each time. In addition, the camera compartment is on the top. I liked this initially, but I found that when I wanted to pull my camera out or get something out from the main compartment, the bag would tend to fall over. The main compartment can hold a laptop and quite a bit of personal items. I think I was able to pack in a couple days worth of food and an extra shirt. It can fit more than you would think looking at the outside of it, but it is on the small side. One improvement I would make is to replace the hook and strap loop closing mechanism with a clasp lock. Sometimes the loop would fall off the hook, which could cause the contents to spill. I still would recommend the bag however. I really beat it up and it performed admirably. However, I would recommend it to someone who owns a camera smaller than a DSLR, and to someone who is doing just a day hike or city walking.
