    Okay Bag

    I ordered this bag online and I want to like it, but it's just not worth the price. It's not a perfect bag. My bag has some defects such as one side is shorter than the other, one button is higher than the other, and the buckle straps are unevenly sewed on. I do expect a $60 bag to at least be well-made. Maybe go look at the actual product in store before you buy it. Other than that, the quality and overall design is good. This can be a men or women's bag. It's roomy. It's perfect for someone who just wants to carry their camera, 2 average size lenses, a flash, and battery pack. I think it would have been even better if this bag had a handle other than just the shoulder strap. One annoying thing about this bag is that the inside zipper opens towards you instead of away from you, so with the front closure in the way, that makes it a little inconvenient to take your camera out when you have the bag on.

    Perfect Fit!

    Saw these bags and first bought the taller and smaller one. My Nikon P900 just didn't fit it so I returned it and picked up this one. The bag has nicely made features and more importantly, holds my camera and other gear with ease. It has an adjustable wide rubber sided shoulder strap and I brought it all the way in to use mostly as a carry handle. Unfortunately, this bag could have used a nice carry handle on it so I wouldn't have to re-adjust the strap for shoulder carry. Although, it would be something of an engineering feat to design one that would allow you to lift the bag without pulling the cover open with magnetic catches which work just fine. They do however, make it really easy to keep everything secure while walking around and going for the camera when needed. The green and brown appointments look great and don't show any dirt or smudges. Al in all, a nice bag at at decent price but only got four stars due to the lack of a carry handle.

    Love the removable padding!

    Love this bag. Nice thick padding, holds plenty, does not look like it is holding an expensive camera and I love the exterior large pocket to hold my iPad. Nice quality cotton canvas material. Closure snaps are strong and the best part is the inner padded compartment is completely removable. This means when I need to carry more gear I simply pull out the inner with camera and all and throw into my backpack. Boom. Now I can carry my tripod, extra lenses and whatever else without moving everything over to the backpack piece by piece. When inner removed, the bag itself can be used as a messenger bag. The only downfall is the padded part of the strap is physically sewn to the strap, so to adjust, you need to Adjust both sides of the straps to center the padding. I do not adjust length often so not to big of a deal.

    Stylish bag that protects from pickpockets

    I don’t normally buy fashionable bags for my gear but I saw this and thought I need something for my DSLR and 3 lenses to use for street photography. This is definitely better suited for mirrorless cameras or other small body cameras. The compartments are decent and the canvas is heavy and rugged. What I really love is the flap and zipper formation. You basically have to lift the flap and then unzip from closest to your body. This makes the bag more secure and noticeable to those who would like to pick that pocket. I am not crazy about the very large inner divider but I understand it is padding for the contents. Still makes the bag feel bulky for what it can carry.

    Excellent Camera Bag at A Good Value!

    This camera messenger bag is of excellent quality! It's built well, comfortable, adjustable, intuitive and attractive. It' looks fairly discreet. I didn't want a bag that looked like a camera bag, necessarily. I don't want to attract any attention to my gear. I effectively carry my camera with a lens attached in the center pocket and four separate lenses (in the 2nd and 3rd pockets). I have a mirrorless system, so that works. For a DSLR owner, they could carry a body, maybe plus a lens if it was fairly small. and two typical 24-70 f/2.8 or 70-200 lenses. there are pockets on front and back that can carry additional accessories, like intervalometer, extra SD cards, cables, batteries, etc... All of this makes this a very effective "on-the-go" bag. I mainly bought it for shooting concerts or traveling light, while carrying multiple lenses and accessories. I highly recommend the bag. Good Value!

    I REALLY LIKE THIS BAG! STYLE,CLASS & PRACTICAL

    I REALLY LIKE THIS BAG! IT HAS STYLE AND CLASS. I SWITCHED FROM MY NIKON TO A MIRRORLESS CAMERA - A FUJIFILM X T-20. (love the camera) I FIT THE CAMERA (lens attached), AND 2 OTHER LENSES INTO THE BAG ALONG WITH THE EXTRAS I NEED (extra battery memory cards etc). I CARRY IT ON MY SHOULDER AND CAN WALK AROUND WITH IT ALL DAY. THE ONLY THING THAT MIGHT GO WRONG IS IF I GOT CAUGHT IN A HEAVY PROLONGED DOWNPOUR WHILE OUT AND AWAY FROM SHELTER. HOWEVER I CARRY A COMPACT WATERPROOF BAG I CAN PUT THE WHOLE THING INTO IF THAT REALLY HAPPENED. DOESN'T WORRY ME BECAUSE I AM ALWAYS PREPARED. I LOOKED LONG AND HARD FOR THE BAG I WANT AND THIS ONE IS IT.

    Love the bag! By far the best I've ever had. Super roomy. Can fit your camera, extra batteries and charger, a notebook, and 2-3 lenses (I have a GH4 with mirrorless lenses so I can fit up to 4 lenses) Also super convenient is its look - appropriate for a casual or professional setting. It looks like a business bag or fashion bag rather than a camera bag, which it could be if you so wanted to remove the dividers. The ONLY cons are that that the snap clasps aren't quite so easy to close in a rush. And that as a result of such a loose clasp, there is no handle to pick up the bag - only the strap, which is not really a big deal. Lastly, the bag itself could definitely use some more padding to make me feel a bit safer about the equipment. Overall though, this is by far the best camera bag I've ever seen or owned.

    I wanted a smaller bag to carry around on vacation. Just wanted a bag for my camera a couple extra lenses. I carry a D7200, aSigma 17-50 2.8, 18-140, and either a 55-300 or a Sigma 50-150 2.8. It all fits with either the 17-50 or 18-140 mounted and camera pointed lens down. Could also work with both the 55-300 and the 50-150 with either of the shorter lenses mounted. Also leaves room for filters and extra battery. I have a much larger case to carry all my gear in then just pick out what I need for the day and go. I really like the size and style of the bag, perfect for a day of shooting.

    Perfect Small Bag

    I bought this bag for my Nikon D810. I was very surprised with the quality for the price. It's a nice canvas with "leather" accents. I put it through some fairly rough outdoor situations and it had no issues at all. I'm a big fan of the magnetic snaps on the close flap and back pouch. If you have a bigger camera like I do, it's great for the camera and one lens (I have the Tamron 24-70/2.8. I also have the Tamron 70-200/2.8 but it would not quite fit with just the camera.) I loved this bag and actually bought their matching camera strap. I passed it along to my friend when I needed a larger bag and they love it and still use it today. The only thing I'd ask for is a hand strap in addition to the shoulder strap so that you can pick it up and go. I'd really give it 4.5 stars.

    Was on line looking and found this one. Luckily the local BB store had one in stock. After real life review, its a great little bag for old novice me. Ample room for camera body and my 2 extra lens. The added compartments add extra space for extra batteries, charger etc. The inside top zipper feather is added insurance for spillage of internals. Product is well constructed and look forward to great usage later on. Even better the personal took care of me very nicely and even found added discount coupons which make the purchase even better. Thanks Best Buy.

    I use this to hold my 10" Samsung tablet in the outside pocket and some field work tools in the main bag. The strap is long enough for me to put over my head and shoulder and then it slips out of the way behind my back. In light rain the large flap does a good job of keeping rain out. When not in use the large flap fold out and back and basically disappears allowing rapid access to contents. The magnetic clips do a good job holding the flap in place. The lack of metal grommets protects furniture from scratching. For what I use it for I could not ask for a better bag. The lack of a plastic liner is also a good thing as they always seem to crack and fail with age. It reminds me very favorably of something made by Filson.

    Awesome Bag

    After reading the reviews I decided to purchase this bag for my camera. It is awseome. It has padding all around to protect your equipment. It has adjustable little inside slots to adjust how big you want your compartments. It has enough space for me to carry my Canon Rebel Sl1, two lenses, several fliters. And on the front zipper pouch, it holds my 2 wall chargers, my car charger, all my cleaning supplies, and my extra batteries and sd card case. And in the back slide pocket is where i put my tablet. I love the color. And the straps are adjustable on both sides and it is very conformable to wear over your shoulder or cross body. It is a great buy, you won't regret it! :)

    Not Bad, Not Great, Just sufficient.

    The Top Flap seems to Flip in the wrong Direction, because the Zipper underneath the Flap is on the opposite side which makes for an unnecessary nuisance factor. Seems strange but if you use the Bag for a little while, it becomes obvious either the Zipper needs reversing or the Flap needs to be sewn onto the opposite side. Also, the Bag could use a couple more exterior Pockets with Velcro Flaps or if that would deter from the overall good looks of the Bag, maybe you could just make it a little larger so there would be some additional room for a couple more lenses and Filters. It is a bit undersized for anyone with several Lenses. etc.

    My wife has been doing photography for a while and really loves her new camera. It is not the cheapest model but offers high quality photo and video at a decent price. The 70D was quite the jump in price. The microphone is a great addition as well. My wife does a lot of interviews and the cheap microphones in the camera have always been frustrating for her. I was a little disappointed with the memory card. Before we bought the camera I did not see how good of a card they included, it only mentioned the storage size. The writing speed is 40 mb/s, I was hoping for something closer to 80. It seems to serve her well however.

    I'm a photographer/filmmaker living in NYC. I run (and bike) all over the city and I always like to keep my camera handy. This bag is perfect for that. It's durable and comfortable and I especially like how it doesn't look too much like a camera bag. I don't like walking around looking like a tourist everywhere I go, most people are surprised when I pull my camera out thinking it was just a normal looking shoulder bag. I'm satisfied with my purchase and I expect this bag to last me many years.

    I have not gotten the chance to take this bag out yet, but overall it appears to be a nice good quality bag. I will agree with other reviews though that it does need the handle on the top of the bag. You're not always carrying it on your shoulder, and the handle missing from the top of the bag can make it a little awkward to pick up and place somewhere sometimes. If it had the handle on the top it would be perfect for what I need.

    Love the look and feel of this bag. Have a Canon with 2 lenses that I got for Christmas, and this keeps everything nicely separated. Has a spot for each lens, keeps the body stable, and an outer pocket for the charger and cable. Nice and balanced so if you have to get into it while carrying, it won't tip and spill the contents.

    Great little bag that holds my camera, two lenses and I put a flash ontop of bag and close it. Covers my needs easily and looks really professional in a laid back way. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is it doesn't have a handle on the top like most other bags I have had. Just a shoulder strap. I find myself reaching for a handle a lot and for some reason really annoys me, Otherwise awesome looking bag, very practical for amateur photographer going to ball games and parties

    I like this bag but it does have a few down sides. The good- It's fairly compact and holds my micro four thirds and two lenses perfect. Lots of padding. The snaps are strong and hold well. The bad- Needs more pockets. There are no pockets on either side of the bag and one in front zips but the one in back is just open. If you looking to carry your camera and a couple of lenses or a lens and flash and maybe some spare batteries this bag is for you.

    I just wanted a simple bag to hold my Canon M6 camera and this was great. There is plenty of room in the main compartment and room for lenses and other accessories. This product would receive a full five stars if not for the fact that it was kind of expensive. I'm a novice in the photography world and I'm quickly learning that it's not a cheap habit. Other than that excellent quality and seems pretty rugged.
