    Comments about Espionage Camera Backpack:

    This looks fantastic but right off the bat it's a no go for me for the following reasons-

    When I travel to Europe, thieves often access bags like this in public places, remove gear (expensive gear) without you even knowing it. Having zipper access in the rear gives thieves a big advantage. You can see youtube videos of thieves in Rome for example, on busses, at trains, crosswalks, etc. This is a huge concern for traveler security.

    No side access for quick retrieval of camera for shots on the fly. Is there a sling mode? Well if no side access, sling mode matters not.

    I love your products and use the camera insert in my courier bag but would love a low profile sling that lets me access the camera on the fly like Lowepro and others are selling, often for well under $100-.

    Do the zippers have lock loops? Doesn't appear they do. this is expensive for a bag that excludes basic security and precludes easy quick access of camera for quick shots. Very nice looking bag otherwise. Build a bag like I describe, you have a winner because you guys have always built tough bags.

        Comments about Espionage Camera Backpack:

        I am using this bag to carry both a prosumer camcorder with mic and a DSLR with a few lenses. The camera compartment is great for easy access and protection. The top compartment is great for a jacket and anything else that you need to carry. I use a 13 inch laptop and the compartment is large enough to fit that plus a few file folders. I wish you could access the laptop without opening the top. Also I wish there were more dividers for the camera section.

            Perfect bag for tooling around with a camera while still having room for other stuff (sweatshirt, etc). It's feels a little when empty but it keep everything well padded and the straps and fit is so good that you don't notice once it's on.

            Overall it is exactly what I expected, which is a good thing.

            However, I am not entirely thrilled with the bag. I am a big guy ( I buy XL size). Neither the chest or waist straps fit me at all. Literally could not close them and in the case of the waist strap, they won't even touch.

            Comments about Espionage Camera Backpack:

            I am a traveler, photographer, and realtor so I use this bag everyday of my life. When traveling I take more than photo equipment due to the clever design, I can use for every day work by taking out the partitions and can really take all the equipment I need when on photoshoot.

            Cons:Left side watter bottle pocket hard to get to when carrying on right shoulder, unbalanced must lay flat or lean on someting to stay upright.

            Otherwise this is the best camera bag I have owned ever...

            Pros:Well made, comfortable, excellent use of space, adaptable for everyday.

            Almost there!

            Comments about Espionage Camera Backpack:

            Funny enough, I bought this bag before I left on a trip to San Francisco, Timbuk2's hometown. I needed something that could fit a camera, laptop, tripod, drink, and other gear for my vacation. I wanted something comfortable, light, and easy to lug around while walking all over the city. This bag held everything I needed and still could have held more. It stowed well on the plane. It was quite a nice surprise for a camera bag. This is my first timbuk2 bag. In the first two weeks, I fell in love and I will definitely buy more bags in the future. Only thing I suggest on this bag is more pockets but the inside storage pouch is so big, you learn to work around it i guess. Thanks Timbuk2! You made my trip so much easier.

              I love this bag. I bought it because I know Tumbuk2 makes quality bags and I liked the fairly low key design of this bag. It got it's first test drive as a photo bag this summer where I was working as a photographer in the Army. This bag held all my camera equipment, chargers, extra camera gear, computer, extra clothes and lunch no problem. It stood up too all the dirt, rain, wind and mud Washington threw at me this summer and was super comfortable and fairly lightweight for when I was running around and walking long distances. When I head back to school this bag will defiantly be used for school, work and outdoor activities, and I can't wait to take it off to Europe next year.

The access is super easy and I love the space at the top for my books and such. Also, the bag's little rain jacket tucked away in the bottom? Perfect!

                  Comments about Espionage Camera Backpack:

                  This has turned out to be just what I wanted. Most photographers try out many bags to see which one suits them. I am no different. I have bought too many bags. :) Some returned, some I kept. This has become my go to "smaller" bag, although it is not small. Only smaller to me because I have 6 lenses, flash, full frame DSLR with grip, etc.

                  This is the perfect daypack and travelpack for me. I can get 3-4 lenses, flash, DSLR, etc. into the bag and still have room for my Macbook Pro 15" (if I want). Love the "separate" top section from the Camera section!

                  And the best part? It doesn't look like a camera backpack! It doesn't scream "steal me." I found that to be more important than I first thought.

                  Sits very nicely on my back. Comfortable and accessible. Only complaint I have, and it's really not a complaint is that I wish it had a few more pockets for nicnacs, but don't let that deter you. You will love this pack! Tripod straps a little confusing, but I have both monopods and tripods. A pocket down at the bottom of the tripod side would be nice, even if one decides not to use it.

                  Overall - AWESOME! Thank you Timbuk2. Well thought out.
