Mods please add this to this camera bag sticky. thanks.
I have had this backpack for a few months now and LOVE IT!!!!! It was a huge tossup between this backpack and the F-Stop Loka. I do like the loka a bit better but this one was a whole lot less (last years model for $70) If i had more money then i would have probally gotten the loka, but for the price of the loka i could be well on my way to another lens.
I mainly use this backpack for hiking and biking when i need to take the camera with me.

Tripod straps on this backpack are not really worth much, its just a bungy cord and if you have a heavy tripod like me then it does not work that well, the tripod slings around, and it barely fits around the tripod. But this was not a main issue for me because I mainly carry my tripod.

waterbottle holder- big enough for a standard waterbottle. But a little small for a nalgene even though you can still make one fit. This also holds the legs of the tripod if you decide to use the tripod holder bungys

front pocket- Holds my filters, intravolmeter, lens pen, and memory cards, but you could easily hold a lunch here.

bottom part of the top compartment. It holds my batteries, a cable, quick refernce cards, lens cloth, lens caps/body caps. I really like this area to hold your batteries and such.

view of main compartment from the top down. This is where you can store a camera with lens attached for quick access. I really liked this feature because you can just unzip the top part and access your camera without getting the rest of the gear dirty if you are in a dirty environment.

back of the pack. Very comfy!!! I really liked the suspension system on this backpack, much more designed for hiking more than other photo backpacks.
