I'm just curious as to why the DR-467 is the largest split-pack they make? I would think a couple larger sizes like the Tamrac Adventure 9 & 10 would be viable.

I own the massive HB-207, and it's great, but it's about four sizes larger than the 467 and is not split into two compartments (photo & carry-all).

There is a $15 rebate on this backpack right now. See the attached file for the rebate.

So going thru MSLCB with Adorama at 3% would put this bag at $62.55 delivered (plus tax where applicable).

Oh, how I love this bag! I went to see it in the pink and white version, fell in love with the bag, not the sticker price. And apparently this local camera shop is the only place near here that has it, but wants $40 more than my other local camera shop, or any online shop... It's crazy!!

Wanted to see what all I could fit in there.. And even though I'm a girl, I still had plenty of room left over. You're seeing my 20D, 135mm softfocus with hood, 55-250mm IS, and my canon rebel GII, along with my *lost charger* Olympus p&s. I was shooting with my 20D. I did put the 20D with the 18-55mm IS in there afterwards and had no problems. The laptop compartment has my acer (ugh, don't get me started), Understanding Exposure, and a notebook. The front top compartment has my wallet and checkbook, pens, 20D manual, dayplanner, lipgloss, cell phone, gum, raisins (for my kiddos) and cigarettes... There was still a ton of room :)

I have been looking at the Kata R-103 as a way of holding all my stuff.
Not as a quick access bag. Also, I don't carry a laptop.
Any comments comparing it to this one, or otherwise?

Tks.

Can someone speak to how the waist strap is on this bag? Does it really do anything? It looks pretty small...

^ well the waist strap does help just a little bit. i prefer the chest strap better. it balance out the weight better.

Hey all, been looking at this bag for a while, and was kinda curious of thoughts on it fitting a 1D3 w/ 24-70 attached, 70-400, 430EX2 and either an UWA (17-40 or similar) or the 100 macro comfortably? or would it be kinda pushing it? or not at all?

Nate, I couldn't really fit my 40D with battery grip in the bag, and I'm guessing that the 1D Mk III is close to the same size. Unless you turn the thing sideways, but then you don't have room for much else in the bottom part. It's the reason I don't use the bag and still use the Tamrac Adventure 9, even though I would prefer to use a Kata.

Perhaps someone will disagree with me?

Thanks for the info, and ya the 1d is roughly the same size as a 40d w/ grip (might be a hair bigger, but useful for size comparison). Guess its back to hunting for a bag...
