Camera

Camera:
"Good bag, but as others have mentioned the pull strings on the large main camera section opening broke off in a few days."
_
"It does look a bit bland dated but that can be a positive as it should deter thieves from thinking camera gear is in there."
_
"Happy with the size that I can pack all my camera necessities in here, only problem I have is one of the zipper tags came off when I first opened it, would have thought it would be more durable,...and I was careful!"
_
"The bag is okay, but it does not provide a good support for heavy SLR camera and lenses."
_
"Also the access to the camera itself is not as easy as the other name brand."
_
"The interior separators are flimsy, floppy things that will not prevent your camera and lenses from flopping around inside the pack."
_
"Every corner cut, cheapest materials sourced, design team that has never touched a camera bag - this pretty much sums this bag up IF you have had a quality bag in the past."
_
"Makes carrying all the camera gear so much easier as we sight see and travel."
_
"This pack's major con when compared to the Tamrac is: 1) the Case Logic has no waist strap and 2) has no side opening where you can swing the bag around one shoulder and open it easily to remove the camera."
_
"Very ergonomic with many, adjustable padded pockets, including one that perfectly fits the entire camera with zoom lense."
_
"This backpack easily holds all my camera gear, 3 (small) prime lenses, a plethora of filters, chargers, batteries and a gorilla tripod (flexible tripod)."

Design

Design:

_
"Good product, but very bad design on zippers."
_

Fit

Fit:
"The outside pocket is great for putting everything in for going through security (wallet, phone, etc).The only negative I have is with the water bottle holder - it only fits smaller OD bottles and if there is something big on the inside next to the water bottle, the bottle gets squished"
_
"The laptop slider is great, but doesn't make for the most comfortable fit if the bag is fully loaded."
_
"Only worry is that it might not be able to fit the tripod on the side of the pack as our tripod is too large."
_
"The product is great, but the seams between the zipper and the side came off after 5 months use, I also can tell that I gave it a bit of a rough use because I was out on a road trip and brought it with me, although I am sure that this is the way that this bag was intended to be used, I carried two bodies, a flash, one 70-200 lens, one 50mm, one 11-66, one 75-300 and a little 18-55, so it wasn't really tight more like really great fit and it just gave up..."
_
"We were able to fit in a canon t5i, two lenses, five add on lenses and filters, two laptops, Chargers, passport, wallet and the tripod."
_
"Good fitting, good materials, good quality! "
_
"Very ergonomic with many, adjustable padded pockets, including one that perfectly fits the entire camera with zoom lense."
_
"You get a good amount of dividers to fit almost anything."

_
"The bag is okay, but it does not provide a good support for heavy SLR camera and lenses."
_
"As others have pointed out, I wouldn't use this for things like extended backpacking or anything else that could be considered more heavy duty, but overall very pleased with it."
_
"The bag was pretty heavy when loaded, but I had no issues with the stitching on the straps or anything."
_
"Good bag but really heavy."
_
"I was looking for a good backpack and not heavy itself!"

_
"This backpack has many great features including:- A large padded main area with lots of adjustable dividers- Lot of pockets or varying sizes- A tripod buckle on the side- A hidden compartment that sits on the small of your back to keep passports, money, etc safe- A raincover (which I have not used yet, but other reviews say that the cover is only useful when you aren't wearing the backpack, which is kind of silly, but at least you know your equipment will stay dry)In the main compartment I have a Canon XT with 18-55mm lens attached, a Canon T4i with 50mm lens attached, a 75-300mm lens w hood, an 18-55mm lens w hood, a flash, a 55mm filter kit, a 52mm filter kit, a remote, a 3 piece lens cleaning kit, and a spare lens hood."
_
"My only complaint is the tripod strap."
_
"The pros are that 1) if the Tamrac bag was full and then add a tripod to the back, the center of gravity is too far back and it makes you feel like you're falling backwards, but the Case Logic holds the tripod on the side and is pretty well balanced - especially if you are carrying a water bottle on the other side."
_
"I attached a small tripod to the outside of the bag, and that worked well."
_
"There are tons of other pockets and slides to make it worth every penny - and the tripod monopod attachment works great."

_
"My tripod fits into the side well, thought it does offset the balance a bit."
