Great quality backpack

I haven't toted it out into the field yet because of the weather and the holidays but it's holding a couple of bodies with lenses attached while it waits. All my necessary accessories are tucked away in the bag with room to spare. The quality is outstanding and the belt that comes with it is so solid and comfortable that I can already picture using it without the back pack for holsters and utility bags when I go into the field and don't need the entire back pack.

Perfect size pack for day hikes

I absolutely LOVE this pack. It fits my ungripped D850 or my gripped Z5 with large 24-70 f/2.8 lens attached and has room for 2 other full sized pro size lenses. It's even deep enough to easily accommodate my 70-200 2.8! Alternatively, I can stack a few primes with the included extra dividers. The interior flat pocket on the padded side is welcome, easily accommodating my 10" iPad. The mesh zippered pocket on the flap closure is handy for storing filters, cleaning supplies, misc items for quick access. This pocket is divided in two, but the dual zipper goes full length which is a very clever feature that I love. The outer compartment is pretty thin and at first I'd wished that it was deeper. However, it fits my spare batteries, media cards, more filters, in addition to storage for the included rain cover. On the exterior, there are plenty of useful loops for attaching carabiners, etc., as well as the included straps to tie down a tripod (or whatever else one might want to). The side pocket is perfect for holding a water bottle or can be used as an alternative way to store a tripod. The shoulder/waist harness have plenty of adjustment, but not bulky. This is a very comfortable pack. I'd say the thing I like most about this pack is that it allows me to carry JUST the essentials and nothing that I don't really need. Even the thinner outer compartment mentioned earlier got me to reconsider what I was carrying and reduce to just what I needed. This is a very well thought out pack. Thanks again, Think Tank for a wonderful product!

LOVE IT ! ! ! Just when I thought the PhotoCross could not get better

I love my PhotoCross sling bag, but it's a tad small for longer trips. This one has EVERYTHING I love about my PhotoCross, but with a lot more. I love that I don't have to set it on the ground to get my stuff out. Love all the little details, like the pull for the zipper. Love that the straps breath and don't make me feel hot. Love that I can remove the waist belt when I don't need it. Love that I have the choice of two places to put my tripod. Love that I have a spot for my water bottle. LOVE IT !!!

Love my new bag

At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it as much as I wanted to, there isn’t as many pockets as I am use to. But I am finding it really wonderful! It’s light but holds all the things I need for a photography session. Everything is organized and I find that I do not stuff things I don’t need in there since it really has just the right amount of space for the things I need.

Great Size and light weight

Excellent harness very comfortable with ample waist support. Easy to configure inside I can put Nikon Z7 with 70-200 f/2.8 attached. Also second body with 4 more lenses and flash. Only weighs 3lbs empty.
