Great bag for this working tog
28 January 2017
I am a professional photographer and had used a series of not fit for purpose bags before shopping around for a good quality bag to carry kit for weddings/general shoots around town etc. I had tried this brand on in a camera shop but amazon beat the price considerably.
The padding is pretty thick, and I love the support round the waist and chest - as once all my gear is loaded it really is very very heavy! Their are sufficient pockets to also carry things like tissues/keys, and a great set of clear pockets in the main compartment which I use for spare batteries, memory cards etc, which makes it super easy to find them on a shoot. The laptop sleeve fits my laptop comfortably and all in all I never have an issue of not being able to carry what I need in the bag. I dropped my bag out of the car onto gravel with all my kit and no discernable damage, that in itself makes it worth the money!
The bag is to some extent heavy, but not problematic, even before you start but the benefits of the padding etc. really do make it worth carrying. I have been using this as my main bag as a full time freelancer, and even now (at 6months old) it barely looks like it's come out the wrapping, even though I often put it down on muddy ground etc. It has massively improved shoots etc. by being able to carry what I need/want in an organised fashion!
If you are looking at this and aren't planning on carrying lenses as spare/spare batteries etc. and just want a little carry around for one camera, you might want to look for a smaller model, but for two cameras/variety of lenses and a 'handbag' for personal items - it really does the job!
