After reading a few reviews, I was skeptical to say the least. However, I decided to check out the product in-store, and boy am I glad I did!
I bought this backpack for a trip I was going on. I did a cruise from New Orleans to Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel Mexico.
We flew to New Orleans and had no issues with TSA or being able to carry it on a plane. The number of hidden gems on this pack make it a breeze to carry wherever you are.
Understand, this pack is designed to hold the Karma Drone. If you aren't planning on carrying a drone, then you can comfortably carry multiple GoPro cameras, batteries, accessories (GoPole, Floatie, wrist strap, etc.). I also carried my Canon Rebel DSLR (broken down of course) with the standard and zoom lenses, filters, and fisheye lens in tow. As well as an iPad, which I placed in the hidden "camel pack holder" (*DISCLAIMER* CAMEL PACK NOT INCLUDED) just beneath the shoulder straps which slides the entire depth of the bag, just behind the back.
I utilized every square inch of this backpack to load up my wallet, passport, and random souviners we picked up while in the different countries. After wearing this all day, you don't feel tired or worn out because the pack is light and limits how much you can put in it, to not overload yourself. I was able to climb the tallest Mayan Ruin in Belize without having to remove the pack.
There is a clip on the shoulder strap which allows you to mount the camera for a side POV. There is also a chest strap that is only for the backpack, I utilized this once, but found the chesty more practical since the bag chesty prevents you from removing the lack without disassembling the pack chesty (just quick slide clips on the shoulder straps)
I got a ton of compliments on the pack and even a few people wished they would have bought one, but didn't based on a few negative reviews.
If you're wondering whether or not to get it, just do it. You'll be glad you did. It beats lugging around an old school backpack that just throws everything into a pile at the bottom of the bag or that "free" single strap DSLR bag that you probably got as a bundled package.
