Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mirror-less Option I own a mirror-less camera with four lenses. I like using camera bags while shooting because they offer convenient access. But I don't like hiking with them. My solution was to fit the Nova in a back pack and to take it out when ready to shoot. This works great for me. The main flap has a buckle for easy access and a zipper for security. I like how deep the bag is so my lenses and camera are less likely to fall out..There are plenty of pockets to store batteries, filters, cards and the like. It has the all weather cover for when it rains. My only complaint about the bag is that there aren't enough dividers for my small lenses. Otherwise, the bag is terrific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the mirrorless SLR, Great for the mirrorless SLR. 3 compartment is best of the best for mirrorless camera. Olympus E- P5 body with 9-18 lens in middle compartment, 40-150mm in another space, and small umbrella or glasses case. Side net space for the Klean canteen bottle 350ml is also good. backside (virtually hidden) pouch is best for the passport... I also have got the Lowe pro magnum, but this small bag is very useful daily excursion, or light photo session.. Thanks lot and lot...the designer of this bag. ^)^ W/o this, never dreamt of light(mirrorless) camera package and performance oriented trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the thing: OK that's why i chose this one, but it proved to be just the thing... If i had a bigger bag i'd put more in, but this happily carries my Nikon D80 with one lens on and 2 more, maximum a 16 in one direction and 300 in the other, plus spare filters, batteries, etc., even the charger if i really want to squeeze it in. If i crammed anymore in i'd have an aching shoulder by the end of a day out with it, so it's just about right for me right now. Access is great, i can carry it with the top unfastened or on the single buckle, and the camera is in my hands in seconds if i spot anything. Spot on, i say. Perhaps the opening is too easy: camera has fallen out a couple of times when left undone on the ground and nudged under a café table or whatever, but that's probably more me than the design, as i say i appreciate the quick access. Perhaps i could have done with one of the pockets being just a tad more voluminous [re. the aforementioned charger] but it's OK and i could always have chosen a slightly bigger one... All in, probably the ideal bag for what i use it for. Convenient, that...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A handy little package A handy and well-made bag for general photography. I manage to squeeze into mine: Consumer DSLR 3 lenses (inc 1 on camera body) Flash unit All the various bits and pieces (spare battery, memory cards etc) The single strap means that it's not ideal for prolonged lugging as it could get uncomfortable on a shoulder but that's not really it's intended purpose - I use a backpack for longer bouts of trudging round. Overall, a very useful bag with much to recommend it.
