Review Date: Jun 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Can fit alot of gear and protect it, well made.
Cons:
Too uncomfortable when loaded up.

I have to agree with the previous posters comments, I took this bag on a trip to China to keep all my gear and ended up getting pretty frustrated with the pack.

When wearing the bag as intended it feels like you've got a box strapped to your back, the waistband is pretty useless and the whole thing feels quite unbalanced. I ended up taking the tripod straps off and not taking a tripod with me as I just found them too awkward for everyday use (surely there is a simpler way to attach a tripod?).

When you've filled this bag up (it can take quite alot!) the weight is just too much for it to be a comfortable backpack and a shoulder bag would give you much easier access to your gear.

Cheers,
C.
