Really dissapointed.

I've been using this bag for over a year now, and my disappointment continues to grow. At first I thought it was great, as I really wanted it to carry most of my gear and some room for persoanl items during flights especially. BUt the more I use it, the more I realize it's just poorly designed to fit much of anything. I barely have space for my leses in the bottom compartment, and the lack of thoughtful pockets means I'm always fumbling for little things like batteries, keys, or cards etc. Also, I didn''t realize how much not having a spot to slip over luggage handles would affect me, but it does greatly. I was choosing between this one at the time and another brand bag that did have this and I regretit literally everytime I fly. Additionally, one of the zipper pulls has broken on the side compartment which is disappointing. I really just overestimated how durable and how much this bag would fit, plus the lack of pockets I also didn't realize would be so frustrating over time.

Quality backpack!

Great backpack, carries all the equipment I need and very comfortable to wear. Bought a separate rain fly in case of sudden downpours but the backpack does well with light rain already without it.

Tomohawk Extrordinaire

Flat landings. Double ejections. Battlestar Galactica. My pack has seen it all. My camera? Sleeps in there like a baby. As a certified loose cannon, I tend to plan on skiing kinda chill with my camera and then wind up hucking my meat into oblivion. Philosophers have been asking the same question for years, what does it all mean? Well so far, the common denominator is time. Spend it wisely. Buy the right pack, drop the cliff, take the photo, give them a story to tell.

Travel camera all in one.

I absolutely love my Thule Aspect backpack! I have seen tons of different backpacks, but I truly feel I made the best decision with this one. I consistently haul my mirrorless SLR, 3 lenses, filter pack, extra batteries and memory card holder all in the lower part. I am able to use the side access to pull the camera out on the go, and switch lenses if needed. In the upper portion I use the separate pockets to organize my smaller stuff, and have plenty of room for 2 medium packing cubes. I haul my tripod in the right side pocket, my laptop and tablet in the slim full length pocket, and in the outer rear pocket, I have gloves and a few other things. I loaded this thing up and have traveled all over the place, it takes the beatings with ease while protecting my equipment. I hope Thule continues with this design! One suggestion would be to add another pocket to the left side on the side access door, with a strap up top.

Simple, Light and Portable

I was looking for a bike to take skiing and biking without spending too much. For the price, there is not a better DSLR bag, I am able to take 2 mirrorless cameras, GoPro Hero 7, small light, shotgun mic, a Mavic Pro 2 in the top pouch and a iPad if needed. The bag is not designed for hard riding or skiing but everything is well protected for some easy rides to get some shots. The flat bottom allows the bag to stand on its own if needed and the straps are light but durable. The hip belt is the real gem in this bag, makes it functional for light biking, hiking or skiing and does not get too hot on your back due to the smaller footprint.

Amazing and Versatile Backpack

Really comfy, took this backpack for my Nikon D810 out around New York City for a day of photo taking, didn't really sore my back or my shoulders. Although the storage compartment on top of the camera storage part is a bit too small, can't put much stuff but at least it can still hold back Macbook Pro 13 pretty well at the back sleeve. Other than that its a really well made backpack and definitely looking forward to bring it along my other adventures! 9/10

3 stars out of 5. Good dslr bag but Read till end.

Really good DSLR backpack but giving 3 star only due to small flaw which mentioned in the end. Outside don't give any impression that this is camera backpack. It looks like regular bag which is really good and sometime it is safer too. It has enough space. I have fitting Nikon full frame dslr with 24 70, tamron 70 210, small Tripod and all accessories inside. Also it has good storage space on top. Able to fit laptop and tab and tripod outside. Padding are really good and steady. Bag is not too heavy compare to other Thule models. After keeping everything inside, ya it is heavy : ) Also padding section can be completely removable so can use like a regular bag. Really good design and impressive materials and quality. Keep in mind, It don't have water proof cover like Thule perspertiv. But has laptop area which other models of thule don't have in dslr bags. Everything looks good before I found some small flaw in design. See the 2nd picture, the padding on the back feels very sharp inside. May be try to cut the top layer of the back cloth. Not sure what will happen but I am keeping the bag as I like the other features and design. Let's see if it breaks. I think it is design issue and not just with my bag. Hope it will not have any issue..

Hands Down the Best Travel Camera Bag!

This pack has a lot more storage space than you would think! The camera protection is spot on! I love the secret laptop/tablet compartment. Love that it fits my laptop, drone, camera, batteries, and chargers, plus all the extra stuff I like to carry with me. I have enough extra space for a jacket, some food, etc. After using this on a 2 week trip to Hawaii, I wont use any other camera bag!
