hi all, i've been using the bag for the past couple weeks and am ready to give a mini-review. it's a small/medium sized pack that looks very compact but holds quite a bit as you'll see shortly. very comfortable, having the 2 straps instead of a sling style could save your shoulders on a long outing. i love the back opening for the security factor. i shoot in clubs/parties so i have no worries about my keys/wallet/personals that i throw into the bag as i use my camera. that peace of mind factor is worth the price of the bag alone. the padding is comfortable and the workmanship of the bag is top notch. this is my current and most used bag setup for club/party events. i can hold the camera + 3 lenses + 1 flash + accessories/biz cards/hoods/batteries/etc. + i attached a strap so i can loop my monopod to the bag when i need it. comfortable, compact & cheap. the hands-free aspect of the bag is great too .. comfortable and it never feels like the bag is going to fall. i can even do my lens changes/setup on the bag itself as it acts as a steady platform. great design. so i've used this bag mainly for shooting clubs/events and its done a great job. it's small in form but it carries a surprisingly large amount of gear. i can even fit a 70-200mm with a little readjusting. i feel secure using it and it protects my gear very well. i paid $60 shipped from adorama and that's a great deal .. it's a tremendous bag for the price as long as you aren't disappointed that it can't carry more! im going to look at more lowepro stuff in the future for larger setups/notebook bags ... great quality stuff.
