Works well for me
My son gave me this for my birthday, and I received a roller-case on fathers day. I shoot events, weddings, seniors, and more. Both are useful, but the backpack is used most. It holds 2-dSLRs, 2 flashes, several lenses, batteries, cleaner kit, chargers for dSLR and flash batteries, cellphone charger, colored gel kit for flash, bounce light modifiers for flash, collapsed hoop 5-n-1 reflector, case of memory cards... AND all the paperwork I may need for a shoot. The laptop pocket handles my lap...View full Review

I've strapped a serious tripod on the back, but, honestly, I prefer to bring my monopod as a walking stick and just a small tripod for hikes. The zippers and pulls have been flawless (unlike my roller camera bag's - different brand) The straps and tie-downs tend to flop around if not in use. I need to figure how to secure them better.

I second that! Don't overstuff this bag.
I agree with the review about not overstuffing this bag. I took it on a trip and ended up taking out lens,second DSLR, and my laptop to be able to carry it. When fully loaded with multiple DSLR's, lenses, batteries, compact flash, 15" laptop, the interior case dug into my shoulders which made it really unconfortable when walking. I ended up taking out the interior case on my next trip which made the backpack more manageable.

I had been debating whether to switch from my trusty but aging tamrac 12 bag for a bookbag and Im lucky I got this one. It feels great, it has plenty of storage space and feels as if will last a lifetime. I just put it thru the first heavy duty trip test as I traveled from Miami, FL USA to Stockholm, Sweden thru Germany and it's holding up.
Really Spectacular!!! Recomended 100%
I LOVE THIS BAG!!! There is plenty of room for everything you could possible want. I carry my zoom h4, headphones, 2 shotgun mics, canon 7d, 3 lenses, 2x 25' runs of XLR, 15.4" laptop, 2 portable hard drives, power strip, plus all my manuals, batteries and accessories for my gear. The tripod holder is pretty good, I have used it a couple of times. I am absolutely in love with this thing. I can carry all my gear to a gig and not have to worry about forgetting something because it is all in the same place.
......whne you load it it is heavy. Approx 35 lbs but you can have all that you need in it.
This is a great pack for hauling all my gear around. I use it when traveling on vacation to cut down on the number of bags I carry. Easily fits my camera body, 3-4 lenses, flash, filters and all my other accessories. Very well built. A bit heavy when fully loaded, but that is to be expected. Buy it, you will love it.
Overall wonderful.We travel quite a bit an the backpack serves well as transport storage.If you fill it up as I do,50 + pounds, it's a bit much for a long trek. I normally reduce the load for day trips. Very comfortable and adjustable.
Before I was use bag for laptop, bag for camera and lenses, now everithing fit in one backpak. I love this bag. Now I have more space in my vehicle.
I've been happy with this purchase.
take this product everywhere i travel
Great travel bag that is carry-on freindly. Bag will not fit under seats or in overhead bins on select smaller regional jets so plan your trip carefully! Bag fits fine even with laptop in overhead bins of larger planes. Very comfortable for long hikes. Access to camera while pack is on your back is not possible.
