Versatile, light, well thought out
June 04, 2012
This bag surprised me when I saw it in person. One, empty, it's about a third lighter than I thought it would be. My old backpack, being smaller, weighed a considerable amount more. And this has a metal frame for support, more padding, and same size upper storage area.
The other thing I noticed about the bumblebee, it has pockets galore. Side pouch for drinks or storage, another pouch just for water packs, a small pocket above that, a small pocket on the front of the upper storage area, and one on the front of the lower compartment. Ya, lots of pockets.
Ontop of all that, the bag has a ton of small things that make it just better. The removable tripod holder, that has two attachment areas, the built in straps for connecting to your camera, saving you neck pain. The easy to remove lens pouch, makes it a breeze to either lighten your load if you have lenses that you don't need that day, or if you want easier access to them. Or how all the padding can be removed and the backpack can be turned into one big storage space.
It's all of these things that combine to make this an amazing bag. There is one downside though. The bag doesn't site upright very well, leaning forward quite a bit. That's all I can pick on. Otherwise, fantastic.
