Great Camera Bag, Poor Back Pack

1) Not made for backpackers. Uncomfortable and not easily adjustable. It hurts to where it.
2) You have to lay the bag down on its back to open it and get the equipment out. Just great in dirty enviornments and poor weather.
3) If you want to make a better bag, Buy a LLBean Mountainside Backpack 278910 OLYK9( 1200.
It's main features are: Three separate water resistant zipper compartments. An open access compartment for tripod and umbrella. It is easy to adjust with unique strap adjusters at shoulder height. It's easy to get on and off. And it's comfortable. However, it is not made for camera equipment. So, I have to foam it myself. But it has tons of room for anything one might need to carry along.
Questtion, what is the purpose of your bag? Not for backpacking into the rough, I would assume. I certainly wouldn't take it to a wedding shoot, would you?

I did not want to post this on your public forums. It was meant as a constructive suggestion for designing your future bags. You should buy an LLBean bag and reverse engineer it. Figure out how the manufacturer made the bag comfortable and backpacker friendly. It's a new design LLBean contracted a company to design and build to solve the problems I discussed in the review. Please remove it from your public forum and send it to your design group.
