Is there anyway to attach a tripod on that bag?

No, this is a small portable bag and no room attachment for tripod.

I have a Canon 5d Mk2, Canon 70-200 IS f4, Canon 17-40 and Canon 24-105. Will the Classified 160AW hold the camera with any of the 3 lenses attached with the remain 2 at the side?

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Excellent review - thanks.

Would it hold a gripped 5DMk2?

I have a gripped 5D2 with a mounted 70-200 2.8IS and a couple other lenses in it. Great bag that is really sleek and low profile.

After reading this thread, it seems like the bag for me. I just ordered mine from Amazon. Should be here in a day or two. Thanks.

Thank you for the great review I have been looking at this bag and use a very similar setup too. From another video I saw my iPad will fit in the front compartment too, which is nice.

Does anyone know if there is room to fit a compact camera like a Lumix GF1 + 14-45mm lens in there along with a Canon 5D mkII 24-70mm and 17-40mm? I assume things will have to stack on top of each other.

Thanks once again for the great info.

Excellent review of what I think is one of the best bags out there. I have the 140 and for my needs, it's great too.

I'd love to see same quality review of 140AW as I need something small just to hold body + 2lenses in a bag that doesn't look like camera bag

I had the 140, but for my needs it was too small. I got the 160 and it works much better for me.

As for the build quality of the 140 (or any of the Classified series for that matter), it is top notch. Excellent materials and construction. Robust hardware. Secure stitching. You will like!

Great review.

I have a Classified 100 for day use. Have issues with the strap as well (as the tester reported). I should try a Domke postal pad on it for fun.
My bag came with 2 small pouches for P&S storage.
Makes a fine everyday carry bag and holds my G11 hidden away very well.

I bought a Think Tank UD40 to carry my dslr and gear. Don't like it as much as I thought I would.
With hindsight, except for the strap a classified sized for my gear would have been better for me.


Best,


Dave

can this bag fit a 400d gripped with a 70-200 f2.8 mk2 L lens?

Follow up...some time has passed. Bag is still available retail, but I suspect that stock is limited.

This bag is still very interesting to me. The UD40 I spoke of above works for me if it is configured differently. Lens horizontal, not vertical...Stored conventionally, lens down, the zipper is stretched very taught.
I had to change out the strap though. Put a LowePro bag strap on it. (Hate it when I have to do that. Not perfect==LP slips off my shoulder when wearing a winter coat.)
Concern? Carrying an ipad. It's taxing the UD40 to the limit.

So...the Classified 160 is back in the running for me. Wish it had a better strap. I like the way the 160 expands if you need space for a grip. And I like the depth of the bag so I can store a camera with a long lens.

This looks like a dignified, low profile version of a bag I found really useful. Years ago I used a LP MiniMag Pro to carry pro film gear. It was really easy to work out of.

What about the UD 35?
I am amazed at how much I can get in the bag and with a long lens mounted and a 13" MBP too!

I have a UD 40 also and I like it ,it is just different than the 35.

Ed thanks. Prices are crazy here...

$215.99 + 13% tax...I know it's a great bag. In fact I regret not buying the first version of the bag when I bought my UD40...money is tighter now.

I nosed around in a pile of bags at Henry's. I wanted to see what they had. The Commercial 160 was in that pile; the price is reasonable.
