The smoke Camps Bay Backpack from ONA offers you high-styling, comfort and functionality in a well-crafted bag for anyone seeking a pack a cut above the rest. This pack will hold your DSLR and up to seven lenses including a 70-200 f/2.8 attached to the camera. It's also got room for up to a 17" (43.2 cm) laptop stored in its own compartment.

This is not your run-of-the-mill, let's climb Everest, backpack. The pack is fabricated from high-end waxed canvas and fine two-toned leather. Even the bottom pad is fully padded with leather for additional durability. The interior is supplied with multiple dividers that are used to accommodate the gear you need on a given day. There's a special top area that is used for personal storage and adjustable from 4.0 - 7.0" (10.2 - 17.8 cm). It's perfect for your passport, keys, glasses, maps or even an extra pair of rolled up jeans.

Outside, you'll find a handy thin zippered organizer pocket for pens, business cards, media cards or batteries. For maximum comfort, the back panel is an air mesh design that provides excellent air circulation and breathability that will make walking more comfortable. The shoulder straps are also made with thick air mesh to compliment the back panel.

A top zipper provides access to the contents and delivers a wide opening through which you can reach anything inside. Two fashionable dark truffle leathered buckles hold the front flap in place. Tight stitching around the seams finish off the pack that is topped off by a leather carry handle. This is a finely handcrafted backpack for the discerning shooter who wants to carry a host of equipment in style.

      I was a little excited and worried when I ordered this bag. Excited as it looks great and had an interesting expandable daypack area. Worried as I was unsure if it would fit my camera too well and canvas is a bit hit and miss.Well, the bag does indeed look fantastic with its worn finish and leather accents. Even camera enthusiasts didn't pick it as a camera backpack which is a great start. The canvas was a massive surprise as its so soft and pleasant. Much better than any other canvas finish I've felt before. I was also happy to see it fits a Nikon D3x with four primes and some other bits really easily. The metal clips holding the flap down are a great idea and more bags should have them.It's overall, really comfortable, but I am a fairly lean guy, and the shoulder straps feel a little wide at times. Not a deal breaker, but be careful if you're also on the lean side. The movable daypack divider is a cool idea, but it is a little fiddly and requires a bit of patience. Not something you'll want to change too often. There is a lack of tripod holder, but I guess that strapping a tripod on the side or underneath would give away the camera contents straight away and ruin the biggest selling point of the bag. I haven't tested the weatherproofing, but I don't feel worried in any way.Not too many down sides, but there are a couple. All the external pockets are a little pointless. The side ones are fairly tight and make it difficult to fit anything in. And the front pouch has a zip that ends right where one of the clips is. It can be pushed up out of the road of the clip, but it makes using that pouch less than great.Overall its a great product, and I hope it lasts me quite some time.

      I bought it and in three months the backpack strap broke. I waited six weeks to have it fixed and it came back with all the threading torn out. I refuse to send it back for six more weeks so it sits.Beautiful bag but not made for tuff use.

                I love the construction of the bag. It's very sturdy and comfortable to wear. This was the only QUALITY backpack I could find that fit more than two lenses in addition to my body.

                Comments about The Camps Bay Backpack (Smoke):

                After a couple day of getting the backpack, I went to a NYC trip with it. Carry inside the main camera compartment a D800 with 35mm f/1.4 lens attached. Also, the 16-35mm f/4, 85mm f/1.4, 135mm f/2. Top compartment I had SB-900, flashlight, sunglasses, cleaning products and filters. Walking in the city with this bag was a breeze. Very comfortable and doesn't even look like a camera bag. I also have a ONA Brixton, and love the quality of ONA bags. Weight of the bag with the gear was not an issue. Practical and fashionable bag. Highly recommended.

                This thing is sexy, pretty much the only reason I bought it was for its looks. Definitely very comfortable as well, Im docking it one star because it cost $[$]. This is just a stupid amount to spend/charge but I am terrible with money so I said screw It!This bag is everything I wanted in a photobag! I shoot 4x5 and it fits my Shen Hao, 2 lenses, spot meter, dark cloth, loupe, and probably about 10 film holders. There isn't much room after that so if you have a lot of gear i'd look elsewhere.

                I have been searching for the perfect bag and the Camps is it for me. I had been using lowepro and kata bags in the past , but I could never find one that fits the right amount of gear and personal belongings till now. For assignments , I can fit 2 camera bodies 3 lenses , chargers , flash , MacBook Pro and a Spair shirt and jeans . Love the fact that it does not look like a camera bag .

                    I've been buying all sorts of camera backpacks from other retail stores for many years. And i really wanted a camera back that doesn't look anywhere near a camera bag. And tanks to ona!! Everyone i showed it to loved it. And its actually big enough to hold my 1dx, 35mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8 ii, 40mm 2.8, 16-35mm ii, 600ex rt, and other chargers,cords, lightmodifiers my phone tablet and notebook.

                    Its a little pricy, but you won't regret.

                      Along with D7000 in the zipped pocket on top, I have 50mm f/1.4 and an SB-900.

                      It doesn't feel all that heavy when carrying it around as a backpack. Definitely would recommend if you like the looks of the bag and need it to be functional. I didn't feel like I needed a lumbar belt with this backpack, but for some that might be handy and woud be a great accessory if they have one.

                      Side and front pockets are a bit tight.

                      Only other bad thing is like any other backpack, you have to put it down to access your gear or switch out gear. But it doesn't bother me as I don't have a need for fast access to camera gear.

                        I thought this would be a great stylish bag that I could use on trips to lug my gear. While it is well made and I love the fabric, the sections are too small for my needs. I wanted to take a body with a 70-200 lens attached, a flash and some extra lenses. It would be tedious to remove the gear. I don't like the way the section were planned out. If you are using other lenses it might work. But I was very disappointed especially at this price point.

                        Comments about The Camps Bay Backpack (Smoke):

                        When I first saw this bag online I fell in love with it. I was actually looking for a bag for my MacBook Pro, but when I found this it seemed perfect (I have a canon 550d and 4 good lenses that I use for filming). I was a bit concerned at the size (I'm a girl, and it looked quite big and masculine), so I was worried at spending so much for something that might not look good on.

                        Although it is quite big, I don't think it would be as practical any smaller. The waxed canvas is gorgeous, and it feels like a really solid, reliable bag. The dividers are removable (perfect for me, as I don't always need my camera gear and sometimes just want to bring my laptop with other stuff) if a little tricky to use (the velcro is super adhesive, which is probably a good thing to be honest).

                        I have gotten a few scratches on it in so far, but it just adds character to the bag, so it's no problem. Even with my 4 heavy lenses, camera, MacBook Pro, accessories, and other junk, it doesn't feel heavy at all on my back. Maybe a little masculine for my taste, but practicality and quality wins here.

                        The best part is, it doesn't look like a camera or laptop bag. Everyone I have shown it to so far has loved it and wants one. If you want something that looks good, give protection for many products, and are happy to spend a little extra, I would say this is a must!

                        Very high quality and everything seems well protected. Big enough to carry all stuff I need for a hike without having to carry a full size back pack.

                        I needed a pack large enough to carry my 5DM3 with grip, and a 70-200L or 100-400L lens attached. I usually carry 3-4 additional lenses with me as well and it all fits in here comfortably.

                            I bought it and in three months the backpack strap broke. I waited six weeks to have it fixed and it came back with all the threading torn out. I refuse to send it back for six more weeks so it sits.Beautiful bag but not made for tuff use.

                              I have several camera bags I use for travel, but don't have one to store the majority of my equipment. I wanted a bag that could hold my D800 with a 70-200 attached, along with several other lenses and a flash or two.

                              This bag can do that, even if it's a tight fit. Surprisingly, the bag isn't that large, but is able to hold much of my equipment. It's a wonderful looking backpack, and seemingly strong. I hope the straps will hold up with all the weight of the camera gear over time.

                              Access is easy to most items in the main compartment and the top area under the flap can hold many miscellaneous items.

                              No bag can do everything; in other words, if a bag can hold all of your gear it will be too bulky or cumbersome and uncomfortable to carry; if it can't hold what you need, it's too small. This bag compromises on the larger side. While I don't always bring my longer lenses, when I do, this bag will be with me.

                              I can't completely understand why it's so expensive, but it is made well, it's unique, and it's darn good looking. You get what you pay for--I just didn't tell my wife what it cost!

                                      I just received this bag from B&H today and got all of my gear packed into it without any issues. I was able to fit my D700 with L-bracket, 14-24mm & 24-70mm lenses, battery charger, black rapid strap, several extra memory cards, flash light, 15 inch MBP and charger, Bose QC-15 headphones, and a flip video HD camera without any issues. I still have room for 2-3 more lenses as well.

                                      The bag allows for many different configurations due to the Velcro dividers and has sufficient padding to ensure your gears stays protected. The bag as sufficient padding for the shoulders and bag.

                                      Quality of the bag seems to be fairly high but time will tell if the canvas and leather stand up to the test of time.

                                      Overall I'm very happy with the bag, however I feel as though the price was a little steep for what it is and that's my reason for 4 out of 5 stars.

                                      If you can afford it, definitely pick one up!
