I have the 206 model, has a spot for a 15-16 inch laptop, Large compartment for slr gear, side pocket for small stuff, front pocket for small stuff, and nice straps for tripod on the side. Bottom is large flexible plastic for water resistance. very tough outer shell with smooth working zippers and padded arm straps. Got mine for a song at Sams club, went back and got another one. Lots of very customizable dividers. could fit two bodies and 3 lenses plus cards/battery/charger. Right now I have canon 5dII + lens + flash + stuff in one and 7DII + 2 lenses + flash + stuff in the other with plenty of room for more.

I have had this one since 2011. Good for carrying and storing most of my gear. Wouldn't want to carry it around much.

If I put everything into one, I agree, It would be pretty heavy. Not sure how well it would be as an actual back pack out hiking, but for what I do, it does work well.

Considering upgrading to this bag. Would it fit 300mm and 400mm primes plus an 80-200?

I think it will depend on if you can configure it to what you want.

size wise, I bet it could hold all three easily, but having enough bumpers /protectors is the issue.

internally, it is 5 inches deep not including padding,
about 9.5-10 inches wide, and 16 inches from the bottom of the bag (where there are external molded feet-bumps) to the center top of the bag (where the handle to carry upright is).

This is not external measurements, but internal, padding to padding rough measurements.
This also does not include the back zipper padded area where you could keep a tablet/smaller laptop.

Not knowing exactly which primes (f4 vs f2.8) you have makes a difference. You can fit 3 80-200's in here easily. The 300-400mm primes, I'm not sure, and the tripod collar would also come in as a factor. Hopefully the internal measurements will help guide you.

My bag with me right now has:
7D2
100L attached
1 largish Neewer flash (no model number on it, really)
ef50 stm
ef 24 f3.8
ef 17-40 f4
2 yn622 triggers
polorizer
loose batteries.

And this isn't really that organized or packed tight. Three loose lenses along the bottom, divide with bumbers, as it is hard to get all the way to the bottom even with the zipper open, but helps to keep them in, camera body_100L together in its own divider, flash in top compartment.. it works for me. I completely re-did the compartments vs what you see in the video on amazon.

Zippers and bag have held up well so far.
