Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a well made, compact bag suitable for a lightweight day`s shooting. Able to fit a basic camera kit it provides good protection to the contents and the supplied waterproof cover is an added bonus.
Once I`d spent some time deciding how to pack two lenses, batteries, various small accessories, tripod and sandwiches I set off for a day in Dovedale. I rarely put the camera body plus standard zoom in a bag, preferring to keep it to hand. There are plenty of adjustable dividers which can be configured however you like. As soon as I got back Imade a number of changes ready for my next trip.
A wet, overcast day tested photographic vision and gear. The provided cover was left on all day long. I could not see any signs of water ingress so that was good. Plenty of straps made a comfortable and secure fit possible. The only downside on this score was the tripod mounting strap. My tripod is old and quite heavy so I found I was constantly checking its security. In future I would probably add an extra strap for added peace of mind.
There was much Ilked about the bag, its compact size, the waterproof cover, loads of pouches of various sizes for all the little things you always need but often lose at the bottom of bigger pouches. Because of the weather the bag stayed on my back so I didn`t get to use the sling function in `the real world` but I tried it at home and feel it could be useful on another occasion. This bag is designed for a lightweight kit. Often I take another camera body, lens and flashgun. This bag would not be able to cope but that is not what it is designed for. On the day it was ideal, small, comfortable and everything I needed easily accessible. Cold wet fingers are clumsy so being able to pull sips open easily is essential.
Will certainy be using the bag for lighter, on-the-hop, photo days when a bigger bag would be an encumbrance.
