My Short Term Review
I have had an opportunity to do just one 2 week shoot with this backpack. In this short time I have begun to become fond of this bag. Its well built and has enough space to pack in all the gear and accessories that are needed for a 2 week landscape or travel shoot. Having said that it does not have the carrying capacity of a bigger bag like the Gura Gear 30 L(discontinued now) which I have had for a while now or its own sibling the backlight 36 L. But as I get older I find that this 26L Capacity hits the sweet spot between capacity and weight. It has forced me to carry just the gear I need and nothing more.
This is now my main bag for shoots ranging from 2 days to 2 weeks. For shorter shoots I carry a smaller bag by lower and for longer shoots I will use the Gura Gear bag.
Build Quality : 9/10
Ergonomics : 8/10
Usability : 9/10
Gear Holding Capacity : 7/10
From the short time I have had this bag I can easily recommend this bag to anyone who is looking for a midsize camera backpack. Its really one of the best mid size camera backpacks available now.
