Needed a camera pack to carry my gear and not leave anything in the car, this is the beast. Protection from the elements, great padding, computer pocket, plus a water camel pouch, this has it all. At the shooting site I could be faced with conditions where laying my gear on the ground is not the best idea, this pack becomes my workbench. All this and Lowepro quality!
I use this to hold two full size Canon 7D cameras with battery holders and with 70-200 f2.8 L and 300 F2.8 lenses plus several other smaller lenses and accessories. Plenty of room. Heavy when full. I like all the extra pockets. I know my equipment is well protected from the elements with this bag.
I have been using this backpack for tha last 4 months and it works just gr8! The amount of gear I can pack into this beast is phenomenal and the expedition class harness lets me wear it comfortably for hours. I went on a 5 day hiking trip to Tasmania recently and I used this backpack to carry all my camera equipment. Also, my normal daypack was attached to it as was the tent in which we used to spend the night. This bag can accomodate everything. The only thing that I found a bit stressfull is the access to the gear, but it comes at a price as protection is top class. We were hiking in the mountain rain sometimes and I didnt even have to put on the extra weather protection on the pack. The hydration pouch is also welcome, although, at this price, I would have expected to have the hydration pack to be included with the bag. This bag is definitely not a Carry On luggage (atleast for domestic airlines) although it said so in the brochure and I learnt it the hard way. But the amount of foaming is about ok for Check In purposes, more would be nice. But when it comes to hiking, I doubt if there is anything better available in the market today. Best feature: The adjustable harness really works and the level of comfort is amazing for a backpack of this size.
