    I'm VERY particular about cases, this bag is spectacular! WAY more protection than any of the similar bags in the same amount of space. Doesn't come with enough dividers to really customize, but it's also about $100 cheaper than anything similar so stock up on additional Modiverse. VERY comfy even with a 6-lens kit of CP.2 (big) lenses. The waist strap has compartments on both sides that PERFECTLY fit Pelican 0910 card cases - I use one side for fresh cards the other for spent.

    Also comes with a cover - which ended up saving me in a flash rainstorm - threw it over the camera and made it back to shelter. EXCELLENT bag all over, and even completely stuffed it fits in the overhead of a 737. If you remove the laptop, you can fit it under the seat in a regional jet.

    This bag seems a bit oversized for what it can actually carry. The interior dimensions are a quite bit smaller than the exterior dimensions which make me wonder- where is all that space going?

    The straps and back are nicely padded and the back has a great lumbar support cushion as well, which would be great if it actually sat in my lumbar spine. I am a thin woman and this bag seemed a bit more suited for a broad man's physique. Not the best fit for the female filmmakers out there. With the support straps pulled all the way taught, it still sat a little loose on me.

    The bag did fit in the overhead compartment of a plane, but only barely. It may not be the best for flying on those older, smaller planes. I kept expecting airline attendants to force me to check the bag, but they let me take it up.

    The inside made it really easy to find my DSLR kit with spare lenses, audio gear, lavs, harddrives, slate, etc. My laptop fit snuggly in the front pocket as well. After I got everything in there, there wasn't a whole lot of room to spare.

    Great Video Camera Pack For PMW-200

      Comments about Petrol PC301 Deca Campack:

      I chase storms to shoot with the Sony PMW-200. The Petrol 301 came with moveable dividers which allowed a custom fit for the camera, boom mic with fur screen, two batteries and some smaller things inside the thickly padded large compartment. Outer pockets hold a small LED kit or laptop. The tripod pocket is small but holds my water bottle. The included raincover would come in handy. The molded fit and chest strap make the load very comfortable. The bottom is water tight but they don't claim that the bag is waterproof, though the sturdy zippers close well and the extra clip flaps secure things from falling or being stolen... Great bag for the money!

      Big enough to fit Fs700, Canon 7D, lenses, and a pile of accessories. Small enough to fit on the plane. Great for transporting gear. Fits well and offers great support for trips up into the mountains where vehicles can't go.

          Very well constructed and versatile. I needed protection for an AG-HMC40 camcorder and sensitive still equipment as well. This large pack carries it all...If you have a strong back and lots of stamina, this is the pack for maximum capacity!
