I wanted to like this bag so much. It's a little big for my back as a petit woman, but what didn't work for me is that with all the customization capabilities, it has no way to customize a large vertical protected pocket for a Sony 200-600, and have the other side customized for smaller lenses. On or two vertical separators would have been nice. For smaller lenses, it might be fine
It would be much better if it only had one zipper and that the whole pocket was flat and not at an angle from the rest of the bag, it makes it look pretty terrible when it's open but it also makes it hard to use that space for flat items. I get around this by just leaving the inside zipper open and only unzipping the outer zipper since the amount of space barely changes when you actually "expand" it all the way. In a future iteration I would love to see that they make the outer front pocket flat to the face of the bag, and then have a main zipper on the outside and the zipper for expanding it would fit around that. There is a lot of luggage and other backpacks that use this and it's a much better design
The adjustable hard sided Velcro separators are great and really give you the ability to meet your needs. The pocket for your laptop is very good and can hold my MacBook 16” quite nicely with room to spare. The extra portable carrying case is very useful and can meet those times when you don’t need the entire pack with you. I like the extra pockets as well although some of them could be bigger such as the accessories pocket for items like MacBook charger and cable
.. Other than those two things this bag is a FANTASTIC daily driver. I don't use the smaller shoulder bag but it was a nice addition and is a good bag to keep my film kit in
