I have been considering this bag for months at twice its price from scrapbook stores and was shocked to find it for such an affordable price. This price was close to or less than cost I would have paid to order it directly from the manufacturer as a scrapbook retailer. The bag is very well constructed. It is well padded and fully lined, the buckle fastens securely and the camera compartment zips shut for added protection. The bag is slightly on the heavy side when full of gear but the only way to lose that weight would be to sacrifice padding and I'd rather carry a heavier bag knowing my camera is safe. The pictures on this site illustrate it well. However, the bag comes configured a bit differently than what the site shows. The main compartment is divided in to 5 sections-1 in the middle and two on each side, like the configuration in the picture of the two spots that hold the lens and flash. The configuration of 5 sections allows me to hold my Nikon D80 with a short lens attached, my 50m mm lens, my 18-200 lens and my Speedlight SB800, and one section left over that is large enough to hold another lens.
The pockets on the bag hold lens caps, filters, etc, quite well. The external pockets are great for your cell phone, ID, etc. The internal zip pocket on the inside of the flap hold my remote, hot shoe cover, flash stick, memory card reader and other small items. The pocket on the back side is large enough to store a manual, quick reference guide, gray card or other flat item. My only complaint about this bag is that the strap is not long enough to carry the bag across the body like a messenger bag, nor is it detachable (which would allow you to attach a different, longer strap). However, I find this to be a minor inconvenience when compared to the quality and value of this bag. You can't be the price and shipping to my home took about a week.
