A Very interesting order

This product is now discontinued so I doubt this review makes it to light. But here you go. The bag looked okay, strong enough but not at the same level as a Think Tank roller.

Still, it seemed to be good value and I would have kept it but for the odd things that came with it. The bag was sent from the manufacturer being backordered so Adorama had little to do with the packaging. Inside the bag I found prescription pads, notes on eye care and procedures, a packed in plastic valve for some sort of anesthesia machine, surgical eye charts, and opened battery blister packs minus the batteries - in other words garbage. Hardly a new bag. I contacted Adorama and they promptly sent me a return label and processed my refund. I think the bag was a good value, new as described. I liked the design. sorry to see it gone but not sorry I didn't do business with JLAB.

"Almost perfect...almost"

By

from San Leandro, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This roller camera bag is as good as it looks. If I could have I'd give it 4.5 stars. It's well made, with well thought out compartments around the edges and in the front. Considering the price it's an extremely good bargin. Here's that missing half a star. My one and only complaint is the adjustable paddding in the center, where all our expensive gear goes. There just isn't as much flexibility as I'd like. It has the typical velcro sections mostly the same size (small) w/ three longer sections. These three long pieces and the sides themselves have a "pile" covering which works super with all the velcro hooked ends. However most (80%)of the short sections have a smooth nylon covering so they can't themselves become attachment points for any other padded section. I finally got the arrangement I wanted, but it's not pretty. Had ALL the covering material been "pile" it would have been easier for my customization, plus it would look elegant and expensive......Nice Gear, Nice case!

So far, so good!

By

from SF, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I have so many lenses in various hard cases, I bought this to use as my lens case for each specific job, packing it up with JUST the lenses and cameras I would need for that day. So far, it's been great. The only negative I have is that the metal pull up handle(that is hidden inside the body of the case) still leaves 2 very hard tubes down the inside of the padded case, not quite where the dividers are, so I've laid in some "extra" padding on the floor of my case, to soften up these hard edges. Other than that, it has more than enough room for my lens choices for the day, my computer, all lens adapters and filters, a couple of DSLR bodies, even a little audio gear.

It's Everything it's Touted to Be

By

from Philadelphia, PA  -  Pro Photographer

When one can put two cameras, several lenses, an iBook, an iPad and then some in one bag, close it up, wheel it, spin it and get it on plane -- that's a winner!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

PATSY L  How does this bag compare to the Think Tank bag that looks similar?
JOHN P  Have not used the Think Tank bag so it would depend on the price difference. I can tell you I love this bag but there are some issues with the Velcro dividers. They could have more Velcro for a better fit. That is about my only complaint
Alice D  Is this bag small enough to store under the seats of planes?
Terry P  Haven't tried it yet, but the measurements are basically 8" high, 22" long including the wheels, and 14" wide. It is a soft outside, so I'm hoping it will fit under the seat.
SHARON E  How much does the bag itself weigh?
RUDY F  very light
