I just received the pack yesterday, so I have been trying to figure out what fits. I'll report back later when I have used it in the field. Overall the pack seems well designed and very well made, like all TTP gear. It's not ultralight by any means, but it was easy to get a good fit on my torso length, and the waist pack is easy to move around front for access to gear. It easily carries my massive tripod. How you feel about the camera waist pack will depend on what gear you want to put in it. There are three main compartments, they are long and skinny, and tall enough to hold a longer telephoto zoom. But the dividers don't have any Velcro attachment points, so the compartments can't be subdivided vertically - there is only a horizontal flap on the side compartments to separate gear lying down, one on top of the other. If you are using large gear, this is fine, but for my smaller Fuji X system, there is wasted space. I tried various gear that I own to see what fits: Fuji GFX medium format: the GFX-50s with the 32-64 attached, and a 100-200mm lens next to it. Or, a GFX-100 (the really big one) with the 32-64, with the viewfinder removed, lying on its side. Fuji X: Any of the Fuji bodies will fit with a standard zoom lens attached, and no vertical grip, in the center compartment. This leaves room on each side for another lens. The 70-300 stands up vertically, leaving enough room for another lens in that compartment, but there is no way to attach a divider vertically - I am going to sew on some Velcro to make this work. The Fuji 100-400 fits, sticking up out of the compartment, but I can close the lid and get the waist pack back inside the pack, so that's a good thing. Or I can fit two X-H1 bodies, each with a lens attached, lenses facing down, and possibly fit a smaller wide angle as well. Batteries or filters will fit in the pocket inside the lid. There are no exterior pockets on the waist pack. There is plenty of room inside the main compartment for hiking gear, clothing, and food. I could probably make this work for a weekend trip with my compact, ultralight hiking gear.
I bought this bag initially to replace a day bag that I used to bring to the beach and on vacation with the family, to be used in situations when carrying non photo get was more important, and also something I could pack a lot into. I end up carrying my kids things, and my things. My first time using it was in NYC for an all day engagement shoot, and I have to say it was great. I only took this bag, and packages my clothes and gear in it. It went in the overhead bin on the plane just fine. On the actual shoot day I was able to pack a rain coat, two umbrellas, the client’s personals, including a change of shoes to walk longer distances in, along with lots of other random stuff, and 2 cameras, and 2 lenses. This bag is meant for adventuring, but I find it works really well in cities when you need to walk a lot and also be a pack mule. Another surprise use for this bag is to nearly replace my entire think tank belt and lens pouch system. Normally at weddings I use the think tank belt with 3 lens pouches and the spider holster attachment. When I tried the hip bag alone without the backpack attachment I found it so comfortable that I put my spider holster on it and took it to a wedding. While it doesn’t look as cool, I much prefer using this at weddings now. I’m super happy with this bag, and continue to be surprised at it’s usefulness.
Love it! It's durable and has a lot of little features/details that really elevate the user experience. It's also the first backpack of this size that I've used that displaces the weight comfortably across my back. Great product and will consider the smaller size for quick trips in the future.
I love the color choice for the materials but the new magnet/zipper system along with the slightly deeper belt pack is perfect for my Sony A9 and 24-105f4 zoom as well as the 70-180 2.8 and 17-28 2.8 Tammy’s (tamron). Quick access to all 3 lenses is amazing for my ski and Mtb action shooting. Great access to my avalanche shovel, probe and extra layers in the external spaces on the pack too. Great improvements for V 2.
I took this one (34L) to the Badlands backcountry for an overnight trip. The rotating camera belt works perfectly, it was easy to carry four liters of water in bottle and hydration pack. The main compartment is big enough for pad, sleeping bag, extra clothing, and food. Moreover, one can easily, safely, and comfortably fit a small tent between the harness and the top compartment at neck height.
