First of all, I think this is an excellent product in terms of construction and details. It's comfortable and feels secure, and the integrated rain fly is not only stylish and high-quality, but also convenient and necessary for any kind of adventure photography. (The rain fly is stored in a zippered compartment on the bottom of the bag). However, there were some conspicuous absences - namely pockets - and the belt is a little sloppy.
First, my gear:
I've got a Nikon D600, which is small for a full-frame but large for a consumer camera. It does fit, but so far I've only tried it with the stock Nikkor 24-85mm 1:3.5-4.0, which is about 4 inches long. With the camera and lens in there, there's still room for one telephoto lens and maybe a small standard prime or wide-angle prime/telephoto lens or a flash unit. Things are a little tight, but I think it's probably better that way - nothing jostles around. One of the photos showed a monopod through the front, but I've found you really can't slide much into that space between the outer pocket and the body without cramping the inner space considerably. A very thin monopod might be alright, but even the smallest tripod won't fit, and the monopod would only work under extenuating circumstances.
As for fit and features, I think the inside is very well designed, albeit extremely simple. The ears on the dividers allow you to pretty much just throw your camera in without worrying about scratching things in the other compartments. Since there's no inner pocket on the plush-lined top, you can just mash the camera in and zip it shut without worrying about damaging the camera back. That said, This bag only has ONE zippered pocket (not counting the rain fly pocket), and that's the one on the front. It's big enough for a usb cable, mid-sized cell phone, some pens and paper and maybe a few little filters, but you lose space as it curls around under the bag, and it's only got one significant subdivision, so things just jostle around in there and can easily scratch. It's also unpadded and appears not to be the least bit water resistant. The mesh pockets on the side are proving adequate, but I'm storing my charger/lens cleaner in one some other small accessories in the other, so I wouldn't mind the security of zippers. However, since the side compression straps cross the tops of these pockets, I don't find that I stress too much about losing stuff out of there, especially since the bag doesn't go rolling down the hill very often.
There are a few very minor complaints I have about the belt, too. I'm 6'2" and 160lbs, and there's no clean way to deal with all the excess strapping after adjusting the belt. When I'm totally sure I'm happy with the bag, I'll probably end up just cutting off the excess, since it's really annoying to have it hanging all over the place. Also, I've found the belt loosens every time you take it off and put it back on, so you've gotta continually pull it tight (which isn't always easy if you don't have somewhere to prop up the heavy, camera-laden bag). Again, though, these are minor complaints, and don't detract much from my satisfaction with the bag.
All in all, it's about the only bag on the market that works for me right now, so I'm happy with it. It's safe, comfortable and appears durable, so I expect to get some good years of shooting out of this bag.
