Almost perfect with one flaw
Love this bag. When I saw it in the SF store I knew I had to have it though I already had 2 camera bags.
Things to love
1. SIZE - It is the perfect blend of portable and roomy enough. If you need more space, you are probably carrying too much gear or what this is intended for, which is mobility. The top storage is perfect for cramming filters, a flash, gum, cleaners, snacks and any other accessories you might need.
2. COMFORT - I've had this filled (D7000, 2 lenses, flash, lots of accessories and a heavy tripod) and been out with it on my back for many miles both on foot and on bike and have rarely felt any discomfort. Without the tripod strapped to the side it's balanced perfect, but even with it's damn good!
3. DURABLE - As I've come to expect from Chrome bags, this bag can take a beating. I've dragged it, caught it on barbed wire, laid it in dirt, worn it in the rain and while it may be in need of a little cleaning it's completely intact and still functioning. You do not need to baby this pack.
THE ONE THING I HATE
1. CONFIRGURATION - The inside is pretty much unconfigurable. It would be nice if there were more velcro coverage so you could modify the padded dividers to suit different types of gear. Also, and this is a small gripe. A water bottle holder on the side with the tripod straps so you can carry watter when not carrying a tripod.
Well Built, well designed!
Can't say enough about the high quality of Chrome Industries gear and this camera bag falls right in line with that statement. Interior padding is spectacular, zippers are heavy duty and the exterior material is tough and hearty. When it comes to style, this camera bag blows every other out of the water! It's small but can surprisingly fit much more than I ever imaged.
My absolute favorite feature about the bag is how quickly you can go from it being securely closed up and on your back, to slinging/sliding it around your torso from your back to your front, which turns the back sideways to easily unzip and pull out your camera to capture that great shot on the fly and quickly.
