Really sad that I had to return this bag. Its super compact, but efficient space, and looks great. I would have liked the internal dividers to be a bit more firm, but more a preference.
The reason I returned it was that it was not secure when really full. I wasn't stretching it bad, and this thing held quite a lot... but unfortunately when you have something in the center that pushes at all on the sides, it bows the closing flap, leaving the sides of it open for someone to reach in / something to fall out. A simple switch of moving the straps from UNDER the flap to OVER the flap, and this thing would have worked great. If fact, I think it would look even cooler and be WAY more secure.
I have a Nikon D750 with a Spider Plate mounted. I thought perhaps without the spider mount that it would be ok, however it was still just too tall of a camera. Perhaps if I took the lens off and had it sit the other way, but I really don't want to futz around with attaching again if I want to go shoot while hiking around.
Some perspective though... I was able to fit all of the following in it, and have a little room still:
- Macbook 12"
- Nikon D750
- Extra 300mm lens (and its bulky)
- 2 iPhone 6plus's
- iPad Mini (with case)
- Medium sized Moleskine book
- Dual Battery Charger
- 4 extra EN-EL 15 batteries
- Bag of macbook stuff (charger block + an iPad one, EarPods, usb-c media adaptor, 3 lighting cables, 2 usb cables (micro and macro)
- Several pens
- Some small snacks like trail mix
- Bose Over-ear headset
- Selfie Stick
That's a lot of stuff, and still felt pretty comfortable. I packed everything away from the height of the camera as much as possible, so as it not to add any more depth.
If those straps were on the outside, I'd be using this bag for sure.
