    This is an excellent bag to carry all you need! My Nikon D5100 with 105 Macro attached, and I can also put inside: my 70-300, 18-55 and the flash Nissin Di866 markii. And the pockets are very usefull too!! charger, an extra memory card, batteries, my glasses,and also my wallet! This is the best way to carry all.Tripod is very difficult to carry, but if you need it you can... but please don´t sit down with your backpack on your back. I hope my photo will be enough to convince you.

    I would recommend this bag as adventurer accessory.
    This bag is excellent companion if you are going for high hiking or ride on mountain bike and you want compact backpack.
    It is well weather sealed and provide a good protection to the equipment.
    For my taste it is a little bit too small. I am able to store store Canon 70-200 f/4 L with and without body and one smaller lens or flash etc.
    Inside of backpack you can customize compartments as you need.
    Cons: Equipment is not easily accessible.

          I love this bag. It fits a lot of things in it including my point and shoot camera, flash, extra batteries, a couple of lenses and macro filters. I love that it keeps my camera safe when I'm carrying the bag on my back. And if you leave the waist strap buckled you can swing the bag around and use it as a 'shelf' when you open up the back to get something out. Great to change out lenses or grab the flash. I liked this bag so much I bought one as a gift for a relative who is also a shutter bug.

            I purchased this backpack in order to photograph political events, and thus carry around few extra-lens and -camera for several hours, if not half a day. It has spared me from neck and back pain, and because of its small size, I often even forget that I have a backpack attached to me. It can easily fit a 70-200mm lens and an additional lens, whether a 24-70mm or 85mm. I have used this backpack for at least two months and it shows no signs of wear.

                this bag was great on my recent trip to Florida. it proved to be water resistant during typical Florida afternoon down poor and kept my gear dry. it is light, comfy of my back even when carrying a monopod or tripod. it fit all this things I needed for a day out shooting. I think only downside it was a bit snug with the camera and lenses so I think I should have gotten 300 but did what I needed it to do.

                Comments about Flipside 200 Backpack (Black):

                I've used this bag since 2010. It held my gripped T2i, tripod, 2 primes, cards, cables & water bottle. On planes, it fit nicely under my seat. The features that sold me on the bag were the zippers being against your back for security & the strap & sling feature. It's dorky but works perfectly.
                4 years and on my search for a new bag because I need more room (sold the T2i & have 2 cameras now), I can't find anything to replace it with the features I value so I'll be buying the bigger Flipside 300 version.
                This bag is built tough and I really have no complaints. Straps are very comfy, padding is great, highly suggested.

                  I use this product a few times a week. I use it mostly when I ride my bicycle on the various trails around the area. These trails give me more opportunities to find things to shoot that I wouldn't see from a road. It's light weight enough to be comfortable and it carries what I need. I also like the monopod holder on the back because my tripod is too big to carry on my back.

                  The zippers are a little fussy but seem to be working better. The best thing is being able to access my camera without sitting it on the ground.

                    This backpack (Flipside 200) accommodates nicely my Canon 6D with 35mm, 50mm and 135mm primes. It feels comfortable for walks and bicycle trips. The construction is rugged and this backpack will last. Probably won't be sufficient if you intend to use it for anything bigger than 70-200. I was actually looking for a small backpack. I have no problem with accessing the equipment.

                      I mostly use this for travel, and it turned out to be exactly what I wanted: Compact, Inconspicuous, and fast to work from. A sling might be quicker to access, but I doubt that it would be as comfy to carry. I do wish it had a larger compartment for misc stuff, but oh well.

                      Here's what I can carry in this little bag at once: Canon 5D2 with 24-105mm L f4, 70-200mm L f4, 85mm f1.8, 14mm L 2.8, 550 EX flash, cards, extra battery! Oh wait, and the little Velbon tripod that attaches securely & without sticking out anywhere.

                      It's great to not need a place to lay down your bag. Proved priceless when I covered the Rio Carnaval.

                      Comments about Flipside 200 Backpack (Black):

                      This bag is well built and provides good protection for the camera equipment inside, but it is small. With my camera, mid-range zoom, and Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 USM lens inside there isn't any room left for my flash. Storing lenses with wide hoods may require some creativity. There is room for an extra battery, extra cards and a few other small items. I am a little concerned that the hard bottom of the bag could be hard on my back if I carried it for long periods. I think this bag is best suited for carrying extra equipment or a lens you might want to have on hand when in the field. If you want a backpack to carry your camera, extra lens and a flash, the Flipside 300 might be a better choice.

                          This pack is perfect for those who need ability to move unimpeded by their gear and yet give their gear a good bit of protection.

                          I mainly got this pack for activities like climbing, skiing, skating, cycling etc. Activities where having your camera out in the open is simply out of the question. I wanted a pack that is small and snug on the body, yet well padded.
                          The pack is rather small, so don't expect to fit two bodies, five lenses and a flash or two. However, it does fit my Canon 60D with a 70-200 f/2.8, with hood on, and has room for a 17-55 f/2.8. Side pocket is good for things like spare battery and cards.
                          Just two days ago, I went skiing. The pack with about 6.5 lbs of gear felt like it wasn't there, very comfortable. Sliding it around, pulling a zipper and having the camera ready takes very little time. Also, when in front, the bag forms a 'tray' which makes it quite easy to swap lenses.

                          Overall, I am very pleased - it meets my needs almost perfectly. Fits what I need and keeps it secure and out of the way until needed.

                          A few comments: The waistband is just a narrow nylon strip with a snap buckle. I wish it were a bit more substantial - wider and padded a bit like the shoulder straps, with buckle at the pack and not in the middle, and lined with something slippery. That would make the pack easier to slide around, and give better comfort when in 'tray mode'. It was fine when worn over a ski jacket, but will be less so over light summer clothes.
                          The zippers are easy to operate on the sides, but near the top where they curve, it's awkward at best. Since there is a lip covering the zipper, and the access itself is from the inside, I find that zipping just the sides, leaving the top unzipped provides much faster access without compromising the security of equipment.

                            So far so good. I got my bag quickly and loaded it up with my gear. I had to do some work to configure for my stuff. But I love that it's flexible to do that. And if I change what I want to carry it won't be hard to reconfigure. It's perfect to carry what you need for a photo hike. I tried it out the other day and it was comfortable to carry and accessing my gear was easy. I really like the back entry for when I travel. It seems durable and well made.

                            I bought this as a smaller pack to bring just the essentials and I got just what I was looking for. It fits my body, the 70 - 200, a 24 - 70 as well as batteries, cards, etc.

                              Perfect backpack for hiking, traveling. Very well made,compact, lightweight and most of all well designed with safety in mind. I love the fact the zipper is facing my back so nobody can "borrow" my camera while I'm sightseeing. Super comfortable and fits all my basic equipment (Canon 60D, 2-3 lenses, filters, chargers etc)I'm a female 5'5 and it is a perfect size for me. B&H had the best price and delivered faster then indicated. Buy with confidence!! :)
