      I primarily use this backpack to store and transport my SLR/lens. It is roomy and sturdy. Not only can it fit a lot of my gear (fits approximately 3 medium-large lenses + body, with room for flash and smaller lenses), but it also doesn't look too big (looks like a normal-sized backpack).

      Although there are some cons regarding this backpack, they are by no means the fault of this product, but simply necessities to protect the camera gear. Here are things I did not expect, and my opinions are why they were like that:

      - zippers are hard to open (this is to provide better weather/water sealing -- it really looks like water cannot get through to the inside)

      - the entire backpack is rock hard (not soft like school backpacks), making it FEEL really big against your back. (this again, is to provide better cushioning and protection for the camera gear inside).

      Protects DSLR and lenss well. Very little room for any extraneous items that you might carry around with you on a hike in the city or the country though. Very durable. Rain cover will not fit if you are carrying a 22 inch tripod, which I do.

            Have been using it for nearly 9 months.
            Can't believe this little bag can fits my gear:
            - 5D MK II
            - 24-105mm f4 IS
            - 70-200mm f2.8 IS
            - flash
            - some memory card
            - a point & shoot camera in the side pocket
            - extra 4 AA batteries for my flash
            - extra battery for my camera
            This bag was made of strong materials. I just wish I could get it sooner!

              Comments about Tenba Shootout Backpack, Mini (Black):

              I use this product when I go out on my waterfall trips or just about anytime I want to have choices out in the field. Holds everything I need. I can't believe the space there is on the inside of this bag. I hold a Nikon D7100 with an 18-200, an 11-16 Tokina, a 40 Nikkor Micro, a 35 Nikkor, a 50 Sigma and various filters in soft cases and a Nikon D3200 body. It also hold four filter wrenches, two spare batteries, flashlight and various other small items.
              The clincher is that it holds my Oben CT 3510 carbon tripod with an Oben
              PD 117 head. I can't say enough about this bag. It is wonderful. If you think you need the larger one then really consider what you will be carrying before you buy. I recommend this to everyone. I would buy again, no question.

                This is one of the best built bags I've used. This is the smallest of four in this series of backpacks made by Tenba. This is an all black with a medium gray interior. The bag comes with a media wallet to hold your memory cards and case for your cell phone. I was able to fit the following gear into this backpack:

                ● Nikon D300 w/ 18-200mm Attached
                ● 80-200mm f2.8
                ● Sigma10-20mm
                ● 50mm f1.8
                ● Nikon SB-800 Speedlight
                ● Miscellaneous accessories
                ● Bogen 3001BD tripod attached to the exterior

                I also own the Medium size of the backpack which will also accommodate my 15.6" notebook a pro sized body and room for more lenses and speedlights.

                  I haven't taken this backpack outside yet. This is a smaller back pack which is why I chose it. It is very well made with enough pockets to store all my stuff. I will store my Canon 60D camera plus two lens,a flash,and my binoculars. All I need is a destination.

                          I'll know better how it serves me after my shooting trip to South America, it holds all the important gear snug and is a true mini size. I like that since my goal is to have the least amount of space as possible for my gear. It looks like the waterproof sealing is going to be great.

                            A little cramped. shoulder straps a bit too small to wear over large winter jacket. Enough room for a mid-size DSLR with a long lens (ie 70-200) along with a few extras.

                            I got this Backpack mainly to take my gear when Cycling, and for transportation to shooting locations, as such is very comfortable, rugged, and seems very well made.

                            Like all backpacks, its not designed for quick acces to your gear when walking.

                            I bought the mini size to force myself to carry less gear, as I usually tend to overpack, nevertheless, this "mini" size holds:

                            1 Canon 5D with Battery Grip (it fits better without the battery grip)
                            1 Canon 70-200 2.8 L Is with hood
                            1 Canon 20-70 2.8 L with hood
                            1 Canon 2x Tele Extender
                            1 Canon 480 Ex Flash
                            1 Hv20 Camcorder on one of the side pockets
                            cable release, batteries, filter pouch, assorted memory cards, cell phone, pen, Mic etc.
                            1 Tripod (on my first outings I took an old Cullman Magic 2, but it looks like it will carry my full size manfrotto).

                            after this there is not much space availiable.

                            I myself am a Billingham shoulder bag lover, will keep them for street shooting.

                            but the backpack has been a nice adition to my camera bag "collection"

                            I am a lover os Billingham shoulder bags, and

                            Protects DSLR and lenss well. Very little room for any extraneous items that you might carry around with you on a hike in the city or the country though. Very durable. Rain cover will not fit if you are carrying a 22 inch tripod, which I do.

                            I primarily use this backpack to store and transport my SLR/lens. It is roomy and sturdy. Not only can it fit a lot of my gear (fits approximately 3 medium-large lenses + body, with room for flash and smaller lenses), but it also doesn't look too big (looks like a normal-sized backpack).

                            Although there are some cons regarding this backpack, they are by no means the fault of this product, but simply necessities to protect the camera gear. Here are things I did not expect, and my opinions are why they were like that:

                            - zippers are hard to open (this is to provide better weather/water sealing -- it really looks like water cannot get through to the inside)

                            - the entire backpack is rock hard (not soft like school backpacks), making it FEEL really big against your back. (this again, is to provide better cushioning and protection for the camera gear inside).
