Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome bag for people like me This bag is great for a novice sports and events photographer. I have used it during major sports evenemetnen and festivals and it's not get uncomfortable but you definitely have a large amount of space. For tasks like photo shoots etc it's also a great bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Camera backpack I prefer the backpacks as they leave both hands free. I use a 50-500 lens for shooting soccer so my tripod is both larger than normal as well as heavier. This bag allows the tripod to be center weighted (as opposed to Think Tank that holds it on the side) so the balance is great. The fold out/drop down tripod bottom thingy also allows for some of the tripod to be below the bag (otherwise it would all be excess length on top and flopping all over the place). Normal reconfiguration and great space size overall. Allows me to add my 28-300 lens, as well as other items. Actually bought a "used" bag for 69.00 on Ebay. Would have gladly paid the normal price though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some hits and misses. I was excited when I received my Pro Runner 300 AW because I have been looking for a smaller camera backpack that would work for a trip into the city and compliment my larger backpack. The Pro Runner 300 AW can fit a lot of gear inside and outside via Sliplock attachments but it can't fit a camera with a battery grip on it. So a camera such as the Canon 1D series won't fit standing up. The backpack does allows you to carry a tripod or monopod on the front of the bag but I tried securing a monpod to the front via the strap but it was too loose no matter how tight I strapped it down. I haven't tried it with a tripod but not being able to safely secure a monopod is a disappointment. I wish the backpack straps had more padding but they worked for my short jaunt to the city and pack. Not sure how comfortable they would be on a longer trip. But the pack does a good job at distributing the weight. There are two elastic pockets on either side of the bag for small accessories or water bottles but the water bottles can't be that big as the pockets aren't very deep or stretch very wide. Overall this is a good bag for short trips. I would want something a little deeper and with more padding for longer trips. It does have an AW weather cover for the when the weather gets wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great just like its sister bag Have had the Pro Runner 200 AW for two years with various lenses and APS-C DSLR. As Ive gradually added equipment need a larger bag for my full frame camera and this was the logical step up. With the exception of two additional straps to secure the zipped cover its identical in its layout but larger overall in length allowing me to include my Lee filter system and another telephoto lens. Construction is of high quality materials which I know have stood the test of time.
