Great value for the price, but it's not the most comfortable or versatile bag
Reviewed in Canada on June 5, 2019
My favourite thing about this bag is the quality for the price - it's very affordable and includes features you would expect to (and do) have on a more expensive bag, like one from Lowepro. The weather cover is great to have in a pinch, although I wouldn't recommend keeping it out in the rain for any longer than you have to. Keep in mind that this bag is quite small - it can fit a Rebel-sized DSLR or mirrorless camera with small lens attached, as well as two other small lenses in the main compartment, and it can fit a cellphone, keys and a sunglasses case in the upper compartment. I would say the largest lens you can fit in this bag is about 85mm. For me and my purposes for it, it's perfect - I use it to hike with my GH5 with attached 12-35mm lens, and it also holds my GoPro Hero 7 Black, a few spare batteries for both cameras, a trusty lenspen, and a couple of GoPro mounts and accessories. I can even strap my GoPro 3-Way Mount to the outer pocket using the attached bungee loop. It will not fit a water bottle unless it's very small, it will not fit a large camera or lenses, and it also won't fit any spare clothing like an overshirt (unless it's extremely thin and small). Overall, for me, I'm very happy with this bag and prefer it over the Lowepro 150 AW which I feel is pretty expensive, given that it's almost the exact same size and has most of the same features. I didn't find either of them particularly comfortable, but they're also not terribly uncomfortable, which is what I would expect from a sling-style bag (two straps/backpacks are usually more comfortable in my opinion, but I like the quick access this style of bag offers). It's also not super versatile, because it's pretty small you don't have much wiggle room in terms of if you ever need to bring larger or different gear with you. But if you're like me and just need it for a few items for specific uses, I think it's a great bag and has a great price. If you need more space but still want a sling-style bag, I recommend the Lowepro 250 AW which in my opinion is worth the higher price for the extra space and utility.
