Question & Answer

Can I fit a Nikon camera kit with 2 lense 18-55mm and 55-300mm? or can you recommend other bag if not fit

Asked by: ThanhP
Yes you can. I used mine for Nikon D5200 with 18-55 (on the body) and enough room for a 55-300 lens. Lovely little bag, very well constructed. Just got a little small for me so i upgraded to a Lowepro Flipside Sport 10 :-)
