Very Roomy , waterproof,
can get heavy on one shoulder
I bought this because it was the only top loading bag i could find that was big enough to take a DSLR with the little bigma on
It is extremly well maid in hard wearing black nylon and is well padded inside - it has plenty of room inside and can take the camera nd lens with a grip on and still have room tostuff a flashgun or doubler on top too
It has a pouch top zip pocket which will happily take 8 or so memory cards , and two zipped front pockets the large of which hold my flashtrax easily and the smaller holds 6 BP511 bateries It is also compatible with the lowe pro slip loc system so you can clip pouches to both sides to increase storage if you wish.
I was initially sceptical about the All Weather system which consists of a pull out waterproof cover which lives in a pouch on in the front pocket and slips over the top to protect the zips , but when I was caught in hammering rain on a welsh mountain it kept my gear totally dry
The only potential drawback is holding that much weight on one sholder, lowe pro do provide you with a rucksack rig for it but i found the narrow straps more uncomfortable than just using the one wide one - I have adapted mine to clip on to an army belt kit using the slip loc loops which is a very comfotable and economical solution.
allround if you are in the market for a bag big enough t hold your long glass I highly reccomend you take a look at this one.
