Review Date: Jun 25, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $50.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Inexpensive, good airline carry-on, decent quality
Cons:
Lacking support for heavier objects, not a true outdoor backpack

This is not a bagged for someone looking for a true hiker's backpack capable of rugged terrain camera toting. The support structure inside and the outside strapping put this in a "daypack" category.

After getting a 70-200/f2.8L IS for my 20D, I decided that I needed to step up from this bag. It's great for light camera loads in urban environments or in the car/plane. It can't take the abuse of scaling rocks in Sedona with a full load plus tripod, however. Getting to the top and suddenly wishing you had brought a DIFFERENT lens is not a good thing, trust me. ;-)

Great first bag buy. Decent "back up" bag. Not particularly weatherproof in comparison to Lowepro's AW bags but it worked fine in a Seattle rainstorm for 30 minutes.
