Great compact backpack for travel!"I purchased this backpack at the Exposure Expo. I was looking for a small backpack for travel and knew Think Tank would not disappoint me. I was initially looking to get the Airport Commuter, because the Essentials states it can only fit normal sized SLR bodies and I own two professional sized cameras. When I saw the Essentials at the show, I immediately fell in love with it's compact size! I am able to fit a large amount of gear, a 13"" laptop and my iPad in the bag, while still having room for travel documents and other personal items! The bag is not deep, which is why they do not recommend pro sized camera bodies. I managed to fit two pro sized bodies and various lenses into the bag by putting the bodies near the middle of the bag, where the zipper is less tight. This is the perfect bag for the travelling photographer! It's small, stylish, functional, well built and it doesn't look like a camera bag so you won't attract attention from thieves. Highly recommended!"
