Holds my Canon R5 and the holy trinity with a 600EX II

I needed a bag that can hold my R5 and 24-70/70-200/15-35 lenses. This one does it. It will not hold the R5 if it has the grip attached. It will hold these three lenses with the R5 attached and the 600EXII can be in the front pocket. It holds my 13" Apple Macbook Air or 12.9" iPad Pro in the laptop pocket with these three lenses and R5, without the 600EX in the front pocket. It also holds my two extra batteries and the card case easily in the front pocket. Extra batteries and cables will fit next to the lenses on either end with no problems.

Perfect fit

Exactly what I was looking for. Holds my D850 with 24-70 attached with room for 70-200 and more. Wanted light weight and easy access. Perfect! Very well constructed.

Great small bag.

This small backpack has way more space than it looks like. Holds a body and three lenses easily. Has enough space for a small jacket or lunch. Light and easy to carry

Perfect Backpack

I bought this backpack to carry a camera and a laptop. It worked perfectly!

Almost perfect!

I photograph a lot in New Jersey Pine Barren's swamps. I need a small pack that would be comfortable on long bushwhacks and hikes that would not need to be taken off in these very wet environments. After trying other packs, this one fit the bill. It is comfortable as a backpack and a sling pack when shooting. The fit is very adjustable which makes it comfortable on long hikes. The only improvement would be to add more attachment loops. Since this is a small pack, being able to strap more things like a coat and a tripod to the outside would ideal. Four attachment loops on the top of the pack would be a simple and very useful upgrade. Still, this is the best daypack for photography I've ever used and I've used a lot of them.
