I bought this because of the price, price, price and the large size. I do love the idea of this bag but it just has NOT held up very well. I'm an architectural photographer and I have had it for a little over two years. One zipper is already busted. The main compartment is splitting along the zipper. The tear is about three inches long, so nothing can fall out yet, but what a pain in the butt. The fastex bucket is broken. It has a ten year warranty so when I get a chance I have to bring it back to the store. I will update later on how they handle this.
Pros: Spacious
Cons: poor built quality

This backpack is awesome.
I've owned many photo backpacks (Lowepro, ThinkThank, etc...) and I must say that this bag has got the pro bags' material quality and many more features.
If you need a big comfortable backpack to carry 2 bodies and many lenses, this is the bag for you!
Pros: Spacious, great quality material, many features, comfortable
Cons: none to date!!
