          Overall: Great bag with lots of easily accessible storage. Very comfortable. Looks awesome. Excellent construction.

          I love the ability to configure the interior compartments. All compartments are easy to access, even when fully loaded. The bag opens towards your body which is definitely a plus over my other smaller shoulder bag.

          Tripod holder works well but is hard to store/remove while wearing the bag. My Benro Travel Angel is very securely attached.

          I typically have a DSLR with attached lens, 2nd lense, flash, spare batteries & charger, memory cards, polarizing filter, ipad & travel tripod, wallet & phone. Still have room for a windbreaker and snack. And, it is very comfortable when fully loaded.

            This was my first Timbuk2 bag purchase and I am now hooked! Its so durable, yet stylish, and is well padded to protect the camera. My 11" AirMac fits in it great, plus there is room for the DSLR and another lens, and a few more gadgets. I like that it doesn't scream "camera bag". I was so impressed with the quality I have now bought another Timbuk2 bag for different purposes. I've had a couple people ask me about this camera bag, as they like it also.

              Comments about Informant Camera Sling Bag (Medium, Black/Gunmetal):

              I use this bag to carry a DSLR (3" deep) with a 4 inch deep lens, an extra 5 inch tele lens, a mirror less camera with tamron 90mm lens and a flash. Of course the bag's partitions went through quite a bit of rearrangement for over half a day. The bag got heavy (really heavy). Now I went on a 50 mile trip to a state park and back and the following are my observation on how the bag performed. The bag is well constructed. It held all the weight (~20 pounds) quite very well. As long the bag is worn across the shoulders, it was quite comfortable as well. I had the DSLR at one end and the mirrorless at the other with the extra lens and flash in the middle. The opening for the camera is not via the front flap which opens to only a few pockets for accessories (phone, lens cap, etc.). The opening to the camera is along the zippered edge close to the body. This make it a bit cumbersome to open it unless you push the bag away from the body. But once that was done the camera(s) were easy to slid rout and back in. The zip for this opening is a normal small tooth zipper and I am not sure it will hold up for years to come. The bag has plenty of space for a 15" laptop or an iPad. With a tablet, which will go into the same pocket as the laptop (so you can have only either one of them) also contains an unblocked velcro which will split the pocket into two when the laptop is removed with one side being the iPad / table pocket and the other perhaps for a phone or an external HDD. The shoulder strap was quite comfortable. The bag also has a tripod strap at the bottom. In the rear pocket towards the body side is a small pocket with a rain cover in it. The rain cover will enclose the entire bag including the top handle and the strap. This can make carrying the bag an ordeal in the storm. I also carried the bag recently with an SLR and the legendary Bigma. They fit quite well when held sideways, flat in the bag and the tripod mount turned 90º. Made for a very discrete transport.

              My final say is that the bag is (a) well constructed, (b) has design quirks, (c) noiselessness, and (d) endowed with a sketchy zipper.

              I'm using this as an overall camera vault for my Panasonic micro 4/3 video setup. It provides ample space for a micro-mirrorless camera system, multiple lenses, mics, and accessories. Though, for a day of shooting, there's not enough room for non-camera essentials such as water, food, rain gear.

              Nice internal pocketing and movable dividers.

              My only critique is that the overall "feel" of the bag does not match the normal Timbuk2 messenger bag profile. It looks like their newer bags respond to that issue with a different bag-shape, or by simply providing inserts to convert existing messenger bags.
