There's enough space inside for two pro DSLR camera bodies and just about any arrangement of removable lenses and accessories you can imagine. Bring along a tablet or laptop as well; there's an efficient, padded pocket for your mobile computing devices. Keep all of your crucial gear nearby, safe and secure, whether you're in the airport, on the plane, or shooting in a bustling city. It can be worn like a backpack, and lockable zippers add a layer of security. Removable dividers let you arrange your gear as you see fit, and provide additional padding for a long flight.
