This is a great combination of a laptop bag and a camera bag. This has allowed me to move from a nice sling camera bag and a nice laptop case to one awesome camera and laptop bag. I was amazed at how easy it was to get to the camera when it was on my back. Just swung it around, the camera compartment opened up easy and flipped down just enough for me to get at my camera without needing to hold the bag at all. It was excellent!

Huge bag, holds all the gear I need and then some. I usually carry a canon elan 7ne with vertical grip, 28-70mm lens, 70-300mm lens, 50mm wide aperture lens, fisheye adapter, and all the film, filters, and other random accessories. You can also access your gear without having to take the bag completely off of your back. The camera bag can also be removed and a flap opens beteween the 2 compartments to create one huge compartment. I can easily put 3-50 sheet boxes of 11x17 photo paper in this bag as well as the rest of my darkroom gear (developing tanks, filters, film/negatives, towels etc. It also keeps my 15 inch MacBook Pro snug and secure in its laptop sleeve, There is ample padding all the way around the sleeve providing more than enough protection. The only real downside is the bag is big making it difficult to get through crows of people etc.

All together well built bag, great for school, and worth the price to me.
