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.
