Canon Deluxe Backpack 200 EG

Review Date: Nov 19, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Storage. Mine currently holds: - 20D - D60 - 70-200/2.8 (on 20D) - 17-55 - 50/1.8 - 28-135 (on D60) - 580ex - 420ex - batteries, filters, cards, charger, and room for an macbook.(my boss's fits, haven't picked mine up yet...) Backpack-ness: Having two straps is nice for mobility. It's gotta weigh 20-30 lbs, but I can run with it (if I have to...) Lots of pockets, pouches & straps - work for everything from tripods to skateboards. The side pockets are a little insecure, but fine for business cards... Also of note: broke down once without a belt, and actually fashioned one that got me 20 miles into town out of the flexy cord on the outside pouch...
Cons:
Zippers - I've broken 2/3rds of them, but just replaced them with the little string thingies that were attached to it... Steal-me stamps: Replaced mine with my band's patches (email me if you want one, they're pretty cool (www.godproject.net) Not a lot of padding - less drop proof than other bags I've had.


Great cheap bag, and one better looking one's out there...
