I like it but don't love it.

I needed something smaller than my 33L DaKine Sequence backpack so I purchased this bag as a secondary camera backpack. The modern appearance, the Tumbuk2 name, and not looking like a traditional camera bag are the reasons that attracted me to it. However, there are some flaws that prevent it from becoming my primary bag.
The ridged structure gives provides security for the contents inside. However, the zippers to access the main compartment have difficulty making around the most upper corner due the stiffness of the bag. Because of this issue, I use the problematic corner as meeting point for the two zipper heads so I don't have to fiddle with zippers trying to make a difficult bend when opening and closing the bag.
I like the depth of the bag but it is too deep for a side entry bag. My Canon 7D with battery extender and 70-200 2.8L lens attached has no issues fitting in it. However, not all my lenses are that length so I have used the provided dividers to split up the other compartments. A problem is created because the dividers make it hard to access items furthest away from the bag opening. I wish this bag was a back entry one because of its width.
The external tripod holder should have had two Velcro straps and not just one. My carbon Silk tripod can only fit one leg through the top loop and only two legs on the bottom Velcro strap. Unfortunately, this doesn't center the tripod to the center of the bag and it noticeably offsets the center balance of it while wearing it.
Overall, this bag is good for an enthusiast but not so great for a serious photographer. I plan to keep Snoop backpack for smaller shoots but I still prefer my DaKine bag.
Quality through and through
There are lots of camera bags out there these days, but I'm glad I did the research and got the Snoop.
It's just so versatile. Comfy in backpack mode and still has the carry strap on the side for carrying it briefcase style. The side access is much quicker and easier than a normal backpack style zipper and the padding is quality.
Props to Timbuk2 for putting together a well designed and a well built pack.
