Pros: + Excellent fit and finish. + Easy to expand. + Plenty of room. + Fits under a seat on a Southwest Airplane (filled) + Looks like a hiking bag rather than a bag with thousands worth of camera gear - theft deterrent!
Cons:
+ The clear pouches aren't that clear - difficult to tell what is in each pocket unless they have bright characteristics. + Slips off of shoulder when using only on shoulder strap. + Way too many straps for this and that. + Front pocket is basically a dump bins with little organization.

My main reason for buying this bag was to combine a laptop case and a camera bag. I go on business trips, so condensing the amount of equipment is necessary. It will hold a laptop and a small folder or a couple of magazines in the laptop space.

There is a substantial amount of space for lenses - almost too much. Makes you put everything you own in there and then it's gonna weigh you down...

I typically carry it using 1 shoulder and it slips off continuously - they need some type of rubber pad under there.

I made some modifications that I felt weren't necessary for me: removed waist belt, chest belt and all pull strings.
