    Ok. I have to admit that I did not read the dimension of this backpack before purchasing it. Based on the picture I could not make reference comparision but thought it was a bigger backpack than it really is.

    Very discrete: Many people were suprise that this was a camera backpack. This is good because if it's just another backpack to others, it reduces your chances of theft.

    Very good and soft paddings. You can easily adjust your storage area as well as external straps. It's very versatile.

    This is what I can fit in the backpack: D700 with MD10, 14-24mm 2.8; 70-200 2.8vr, SB600, and 50mm 1.4. The side pockets for battery charger and cleaning gears.After that, it's PACKED!!! You might...just might...be able to put one more small lens in the bag. If you have more gears than what I've listed you can FORGET IT!! Find another bag. Don't take me wrong. I like this bag. If it were just about -5 inches taller it would be PERFECT!

    it is very heavy

    It is a great gear, though it is really heavy and would be difficult to travel with it.

      Comments about Tenba Shootout Backpack, Small (Black and Olive):

      The backpack I had was getting too small for all my gear so I went looking. The shootout has many features I like including multiple access points to the main compartment. an on-board rain cover and plenty of padding. I travel in Europe and like taking my gear, including my tripod. This backpack will do it all.

      Comments about Tenba Shootout Backpack, Small (Black and Olive):

      I found this backpack to be a little on the heavy side. However it looks like a lot of thought has been given into its design. It is a very functional and versatile backpack. The quality of the workmanship is very evident from the weatherproof zipper to the rain cover. I opted for the small size version and it is more than sufficient for my needs. I am able to store my camera, additional lens , flash, charger, tripod, portable drives into my backpack with room to spare. I can also use this backpack as a regular backpack as well. I highly recommend this backpack.

            Comments about Tenba Shootout Backpack, Small (Black and Olive):

            It looks heavy. It's not. The amount of gear I've been able to stuff into this bag is unheard of. I love all the extra pockets, the hidden pockets, the rain cover - I love that I can remove the waist belt if necessary, and I can convert it from a backpack into a carry-case with the extra handles on the sides and top. It really is an awesome bag. What I do NOT understand is why this COLOR was more expensive than the BLUE one. That was really weird, but of course, I paid the little bit extra because the olive and green looks awesome. As far as construction and usefulness of the actual bag, I have nothing bad to say about it. This bag is going to last me a LONG time.

              I am a photo enthusiast. I ordered a medium Shootout Backpack, but it was a little too large and consequently, when full, too heavy. The small size is just about right. I wish the front pouch were not contoured and a little larger so it was more functional. The laptop pouch and the various strap and zippered covers are very well thought out functional. the side access pouches are not very useful.
              Very well made.

              Comments about Tenba Shootout Backpack, Small (Black and Olive):

              After seeing the mini version of this backpack in person, I decided on this one. I use it everywhere that I go and its extremely comfortable. Not only do I carry all my camera equipment, which includes a 7D and 4 heavy macro lenses, but I carry my 2 series Gitzo traveler as well. Its not the lightest thing in the world, and I wish it had the weight of the mini, but I would never be able to carry with me all that I do. If your looking for a great backpack don't hesitate on this one. Oh, and as for the zippers, many people have complaints about them, but I can assure you they are worth the occasional trouble. Not only do they make a complete seal, they don't need to be cleaned very often, if at all. They hardly become difficult to open when the pack is weighted down and maybe only in awkward positions they can be a bit sticky.

                Comments about Tenba Shootout Backpack, Small (Black and Olive):

                I have had several varieties of the typical camera backpacks and was jazzed about the Tenba Shootout packs. I really like the improvements they have added like the tripod carrying system and front strap cover - makes lugging it with baggage around the airport so much easier. Instead of lugging a very large and heavy clunker, I opted to travel lighter with the Small Shootout - carries my digital SLR and a couple lenses with room to spare.

                The shoulder straps are nice and wide and well padded. Even with a smaller pack, after hours on your feet, the extra comfort makes a big difference.

                It is a hair heavier than other brands, but for me it pays off with the rugged design and features.

                Serious bag. Lot's and lot's of protection. Can hold a considerable amount of equipment in a relatively small area. I currently have a D300s, 4 lenses (including a 80-200 2.8), Gossen Light meter, and a spare body. It's a very. very tight fit! Has lot's of cool features like spare pockets, hide away strap covers, rain gear cover (hidden in a small compartment) pockets that can be configured to be quick access panels,and includes two small pouches 1-misc, and 1-media pouch. Pretty comfortable as a back pack, additional benefit is the fact this doesn't really look like a camera bag necessarily, which could be an added security benefit. Also a good size for an Airline carry-on

                As for the drawbacks I don't care what they say there is no way I can get a laptop in here while the case is loaded. Probably should have gone with the medium version for that. WATCH the VIDEO! It will show just how versatile this case is.

                I am a intermediate photographer and have developed a tendency to doing more hiking and outdoor adventures with my camera. This backpack is the perfect size for a couple of camera's, lens, charger, cables and phone. The laptop area is nice but I use that for a extra shirt and socks when out. The tripod holding system is perfect and adjust to any tripod (or tripod and monopod in my case). This is a quality backpack, made for our use.

                The only thing that would make it better is if it could be lighter. I had buyers remorse when I ordered it, which completely disappeared as soon as it arrived.

                I was hesitant to spend so much money as I am just a hobby photographer. It was worth every penny! Quality product, exactly what it was advertised to be. I use it when I travel and with the extra pockets on the outside I can store my personal belongings, get to them quickly and not need an extra bag.

I don't usually carry my lens mounted but if I have to in a hurry, it fits a Canon 40D with a mounted Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS, with plenty of room for my flash and several lenses. I don't carry a laptop hiking, so I use the laptop compartment for trail maps and a small wallet. Also, carry-on compatable for air travel, used it for a trip to Idaho and was perfect.

                This backpack is great! Has some excellent features, built in tripod holder, and some really smart ideas like the cover for the straps. I had a lowepro before this bag and the lowepro does not compare. The only thing I would change about this bag is that it has no separate compartment for pens and little odds and ends. Beside that, this bag is perfect.

                Ok. I have to admit that I did not read the dimension of this backpack before purchasing it. Based on the picture I could not make reference comparision but thought it was a bigger backpack than it really is.

                Very discrete: Many people were suprise that this was a camera backpack. This is good because if it's just another backpack to others, it reduces your chances of theft.

                Very good and soft paddings. You can easily adjust your storage area as well as external straps. It's very versatile.

                This is what I can fit in the backpack: D700 with MD10, 14-24mm 2.8; 70-200 2.8vr, SB600, and 50mm 1.4. The side pockets for battery charger and cleaning gears.After that, it's PACKED!!! You might...just might...be able to put one more small lens in the bag. If you have more gears than what I've listed you can FORGET IT!! Find another bag. Don't take me wrong. I like this bag. If it were just about -5 inches taller it would be PERFECT!

                  I received from B&H what I expected. Very good quality, competitive price and great service by B&H ! The backpack itself is the best on the market, I reckon....
