- It's a robust enough bag, strap is comfortable and the bag is functional. Sadly it's nothing special and actually has several annoying little gotchas - see next section. Would I recommend it? Yes definitely. Is it the greatest thing ever? No, not by a long way but it's perfectly adequate for what it does.
- 1. The bag is way overpriced. It's a perfectly acceptable camera bag but overpriced.
2. Don't believe the Think Tank website about what it holds. Space is tight inside and the flaps on the corners inside are a downright nuisance when trying to get a 70-200 in/out with a lens hood attached.
3. The dividers don't have Velcro strips to attach to each other so stopping your lenses knocking together is awkward. I've had to weave dividers between lenses etc.
4. Changing the internal layout is a drama because it's tight in the bag and the Velcro strips on the edge of the dividers instantly stick to the bag wall. Annoying and tedious more than a major problem.
5. Bag design means it has a tendency to tip forwards when loaded so be careful where you sit it down - splash!
6. When camera and lenses are loaded all pockets are a tight squeeze. Side pockets are useless because bag bulges out making it impossible to get anything in/out of them.
All of these are individually minor little gripes that can be overcome with a bit of effort. However, they do exist and are annoying.
I'd still recommend the bag but just don't believe the hype, don't expect any miracles - it's ok but that's it and shop around for a good price.
