        Comments about Petrol PC303 Deca Campack Plus:

        I am a Land Surveyor and I have some very expensive and delicate equipment that I have to carry all over the countryside in all types of weather. I couldn't find anything even close to the quality and versatility that this bag offers when I searched for padded backpacks for Surveying instruments. SECO(basically the only game in town so to speak) really needs to up their game as far as padded backpacks are concerned.
        I just bought the bag so I can't really say how it performs over time, but the versatility of how you can customize the compartment dividers, and the amount and shape of the outside pockets and straps is awesome! The straps and pack itself is also very comfortable.

          Very well designed, but not right for a red Epic package going on a plane or out and about shooting in the city.

            Solid construction (OK maybe the main zipper could be more robust), well balanced, and I have no strain carrying a 45 pound load. Plenty of room for an HPX250 camera, on-camera light, stringers, chargers, headphones, mics, slate, other accessories, and a 17-inch portable computer.

            With this pack, I can carry a full lifecycle production capability on my back.

            Comments about Petrol PC303 Deca Campack Plus:

            The bag doesn't zip open completely. There is about a four inch gap at the bottom of the bag that is a little annoying to get to. I was surprised to see how roomy thing bag is though. I was able to comfortably fit my canon x1-h1 in it (after removing my Anton Bauer battery pack) and loads of accessories into it. I could have spent twice as much for a slightly better bag but I think I made the right decision. Unless money is no object than I would recommend anyone with a similar scenario get this. It has enough space for food and if you wanted to you could rig a sleeping bag and all sorts of other things to this guy. It's padded to the max. I could hike for 6 hours with the thing (and did) and the straps really didn't bother me. What are you waiting for? Order this bag now!!! I now constantly store my camcorder in here whenever I'm not using it. It's so protective. And there's an excellent slot for any size laptop. It's so good, if my grandmother was into filming like I am then I would recommend this to her.

              This is an excellent backpack and built better than the competition's at way less price. Same high quality as my other Petrol bag.
              The material is strong and the design is good. The straps are well designed and functional to handle the weight. I really can't think of anything that needs improvement.

              • Hauling gear in the wild

              Comments about Petrol PC303 Deca Campack Plus:

              I bought this bag to haul some large format still camera gear and so far it does a pretty decent job. The shoulder straps and waist belt do a good job of carrying the load comfortably. I rate it 4 stars instead of 5 because the bag doesn't fully unzip. In other words, the bottom few inches are harder to access because the bag doesn't unzip those last few inches. It's an annoyance but not a major flaw.

              it fits all the gear that we needed it to fit, it has tons of padding so it is super comfy. i don't know if it is carry on size yet, but if it is that makes it even more worth it. the adjustable everything is great. i would like to see more zip compartments/pockets for smaller, important things that i don't want to lose and need easy access to.

                If I were a 6 foot man I would have nothing but excellent comments for this bag. It is so versatile. The interior is like your own lego set. You can create your own pockets to fit the gear you have. It comes with the middle section set to fit a 20" camcorder (which means I do have to take the anton bauer battery off of my JVC GYHD250U in order for it to fit --- but that should be done anyway). I created pockets to fit my batteries, wireless microphone, tapes, XLR cables, wired mics...etc. The outside of the bag is nice and tidy....which I like a lot! Other bags have too much clutter on the outside...gets caught on stuff. The boxiness of the bag makes it easy to stand up, lay down and stow anywhere. ONLY complaint --- belt support is not enough for a 5'4" woman. I wish they had a slightly different version modeled for the average female videographer. With the waist belt clipped and tightened all the way down, there is about a 3" gap of air between the shoulder straps and my shoulders. Bummer! But it is a nice bag!

                I'm using this bag for my Sony EX3. It is a bit on the large side but it holds all my excessories, from the batteries and charger to matte box, filters, and lenses. It is a great bag for those on the go and for those who like to have everything in one place. My only complaint, the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is that the main compartment doesn't unzip all the way. I have a hard time getting the the bottom of the bag where some of my excessories are.
