    Very good! Ideal for mirrorless. Not for full size

    This camera bag is great! If you have a mirror-less set up it would be ideal. For a regular sized DSLR maybe not so much. I bought this to replace my AW150 slingshot, which as a big guy...is a horrible backpack. I really like this backpack, but the camera compartment is too cramped. I will be returning it and getting the larger version for the extra camera room. Pros: -You can definitely fit a 11" Macbook Air and an Ipad (at the same time) in the front compartment, there are two separate pockets. -Side pockets are super nice for a bottle. -The removable camera compartment makes it a fully usable backpack. -It comes with a bunch of Velcro inserts for the camera compartment so you can configure it how you want. -The waist strap is big. easily over 50" when fully extended. The chest strap too is pretty generous Cons -The camera compartment is small. It can hold my DSLR (Old T3i with 18-55 kit lens)) and barely a 55-250 lens. The camera wouldn't fit at all with the larger lens attached. -If anything protrudes even slightly above the top of the camera compartment you can feel it in your back. -The side pouches are pretty useless as a tripod holder. If there wasn't a larger version available I would keep the bag, it is super comfy. But there is, so I'm going to give that a try

    Great bag for backpacking with DSLR

    Before I went ahead and bought the Hatchback 150, I as in doubt if I should go for either the 150 or 250. (16 Liters vs 22 Liters). I am using a fairly big DSLR with 3 lenses which are fairly large as well. Everything pointed towards the 22L version, but I didn't like the size of the actual big. It looks big on me and I wanted to give the 16L version a try. What is in my 16L bag at this moment: - Nikon D7100 with grip - Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 - Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 - cleaning gear and extra SD card All this goes into my Camera compartment of the bag. And then I have a Tamron 70-300 VC USD that doesn't fit in the compartment but if I think I need this lens I will carry it in a pouch in the upper compartment where it will be perfectly safe as well! I am very happy I decided to go for the smaller and cheaper one. Looks better, light weight and works perfectly even with my fairly big setup. T The bag itself looks and feels great. Very comfortable to wear, and looks great on me. Looks like a regular backpack! I always struggled to bring my DSLR to events or just for a normal walk or hike since it was such a struggle to bring it. This bag is revolutionary in the way that it is so easy and effortless to just bring your DSLR, just in case. I feel like I get so much more out of my DSLR just by getting this bag. I actually have taken so many great shots because I just brought my camera along on very regular occasions!

    Great backpack for photography

    I found this to be the perfect match for myself or anyone else using a multi piece (lenses, flash, battery expansion handle, tripod,etc..) camera. One feature that really stuck out is the pouch for the camera on the front of the pack (against your back) specificially if your ever in inclimate conditions. When you take the pack off you can lay it backside down the appeal of this is when you put it back on anything the pack may have come in contact with (dirt, mud, water, etc...) isn't against your back it's on the backside of the pack away from you and your clothes, and on top of all that...literally, it has a rain fly that slips snugly over the back of the pack which by the way doesn't interfere with getting out your camera because your access is on the front side of the pack. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the price. $80 is a little steep, now I did get it on sale for $60 which is reasonable but doesn't change the fact that the normal price is $80. Hope this helps anyone on the fence.

    Great Backpack for a Single Camera

    This bag is big enough to carry one full size DSLR body and a few lenses. Plus any accessories you might need. I use this to carry my quick shoot gear for my YouTube channel. This is what I have comfortably stored in it; Panasonic FZ200 Bridge Camera with shade attached Two - GoPro 3's with mounts, cases and filters 3- Rode Video Mics Spare batteries and chargers for all 3 cameras Various 52mm and 37mm filters for all 3 cameras 2- 6" mini tri-pods Various cables and adaptors for the mics Camera strap iPad Mini The camera storage area is actually a removable tub that is Velcro'd into the compartment. When you take it out the sides are folded down. You can pull these up and draw the cord to close it up like a bag. It's well padded and can be arranged to sort your individual needs. All of my gear fits comfortably and was easily accessible whole I was at the WSBK event at Laguna Seca.

    Went on a trip overseas and needed something that could carry my camera and extra lens along with a few other things, but not be too large and cumbersome. This was perfect size. The camera could not only fit in the back zippered portions but could also be stuck in the top zippered section for easy access. I was skeptical about the little rain resistant cover tucked in the pouch at the bottom, but it also worked perfectly. Overall, great purchase. Perfect size. Utilitarian. Protective. Slide easily under the seat on the plane or in the overhead. And thanks to the salesman who diligently worked me through my options until I found just the right one.

    Small Size but Holds a Lot of Stuff

    I like the relatively small size of this case in comparison to my larger DSLR backpacks. This bag is great for carrying all of my mirrorless gear, but will also work for my DSLR with a couple of small lenses and a flash. I like that the opening is toward my back for extra security in a crowd. My iPad Pro 9.7" fits great in the front tablet pouch, and there is room in the pack for my nature journal and my pens, pencils, and watercolors. A Joby tripod goes in one side pouch and a water bottle in the other. This is a great hiking daypack. I also have the LowePro Fastpack, which is similar, but I like the Photo Hatchback better.

    I purchased this camera bag for a trip to Alaska. I wanted something small that I could fit under the seat on the airplane while still having the capacity to hold my camera, iPad, and a bottle of water. The bag worked perfectly. The cool thing about this bag is you can un-Velcro the center divider and remove the camera insert and the bag turns into a regular backpack for the times you don’t need your camera. I just used it this way for a business trip and it worked great to hold my Surface Pro, paperwork, accessories, and more. This is my new go to Backpack.

    i purchased this bag to carry my camera and also other items while being a tourist. the bag worked perfect for my Sony a6000, zoom lens, and other accessories. i could have carried another lens in the camera area also. the top area worked perfect for gloves, hat, snacks, souvenirs, etc. it was also comfortable to wear and easy to flip off to one side so you could reach your stuff. i didn't need it but I loved the fact it has a rain cover too. After I returned, I realized Best Buy had the bag for a lower price (week later) and they gladly gave me a credit for the difference.
