      A good small to mid-size bag

        Comments about 5564 Explorer 400 Digital Camera Bag (Black):

        I was looking for a bag to carry my Lumix M4/3 camera, a few lenses, batteries, filters, other gear.

        I wanted a bag that zipped closed (unlike many of the messenger-style bags, which have a flap, but the main compartment doesn't zipper closed) and also had a rain cover (living in the Northwest and all, and also planning to travel to Ireland this fall).

        This bag fits the bill. It's not so large, but with some creative packing, I can put my camera, 4-5 lenses and gear in the bag.

        I like it too that the bag is taller than it is wide, which means I can put the camera and lens in face down and get to them easily. It is tall enough that I can do this with my longest lens--100-300mm--attached.

        The quality is good, and the strap seems very comfortable. So far, nothing to dislike about the bag.

          This bag carries a lot of stuff. The quality is very nice and it feels durable in hand. It can get heavy so it's not the best bag for long hikes.

            Unless I'm lugging a big telephoto, this bag is my "go to" bag. It carries a Canon 20D with a 24-105 lens attached and also a 17-40 lens and Speedlite. The shoulder strap keeps it comfortably and securely close. For under $100, this is a great bargain.

              This a great bag for photo walks and trips. I can fit most everything I need for a day of shooting. Everything is easy to get to and has more room than I had thought. Several lenses, filters, batteries, etc.
              One thing not quite great, my D700 with grip is a little tight. Take the grip off and its all good.

                      Found the Tamrac dividers difficult to work with - they only have small velcro tabs (the Lowepro Nova bags have velcro the full height of the dividers and provide more support/stability).

                      Found this bag a little small for what it is "advertised" to hold - returned for the Lowepro product.
