The Navigator 55 DSLR Shoulder Bag from Ruggard is a lightweight (34 oz) way to carry around your DSLR camera system. It is sized to hold your large DSLR with grip and most 11" laptops. The 11 x 6.75" laptop sleeve prevents your camera gear from bumping into your computer. The inside of the bag features ten removable padded dividers that allow you to create individual compartments for your gear.

The exterior of the bag features a front protective flap with a quick-release buckle that closes over the bag. The front of the bag itself has a compartment with a few smaller pockets inside. Inside, there is a zippered, mesh pocket, two slash pockets, and two touch-fastened pockets for memory cards. The rear of the bag contains another zippered pocket where you'll find a removable rain cover. One side of the bag has an accessory loop on which you can attach an optional pouch. The other side of the bag has a neoprene stretch pocket for even more small items.

The exterior of the bag is made from water-resistant polyester and ballistic nylon while the interior lining is polyester. Two rubber feet on the bottom protect the bottom of the bag when it is placed on the ground. Access to the bag is via two YKK zippers with yellow pull tabs. The bag is carried by its adjustable, removable shoulder strap or top grab handle. There's also a trolley sleeve on the back that allows you to thread the bag over your optional rolling luggage cart.

      I haven't used this bag a whole lot, but it seems sturdy and durable. It is reinforced and has lots of the padded velcro peices for making different configurations. It seems like the bag could take some abuse and still protect the equipment inside. Lots of good storage space and pockets.

                    This bag reeks of quality strength. Seems to make carrying my gear that much easier. I love the layout of how I can change the walls of padding to protect what I want in the bag. Great bag for every day use!

                    I'm sure it's a great bag, probably durable and of high quality but it came with a camera body I ordered and well I'm just not into the big clunky old schoolish camera bags. I'll probably store old gear in it in a closest and it will be grand for that.

                        For a bundled bag, this thing is huge! It fits the D4s with a 24-70 attached (reverse hood). The inner panels are so configurable, you can arrange them to keep the body/lens safe. Storage is also very good.

                        This is a very big medium sized bag. Very ockward if carrying over your shoulder. BUT it is very study and has a lot of room! I can fit my D800(w/ bat grip) + D600(W/ Bat grip) + 24-70 f2.8 + 50mm 1.8. plus memory card holder and 2.5in HHD laying on lot AND a 7in tablet in the side pocket!. I use it to store that gear instead of actually taking it out on the road. This is a really great bag but a little bit too big for me. But I wont knock it because it is not my personal style but overall it is a really good sized, strong bag!

                        I was very surprised at the high quality of this bag. I expected a cheap piece of junk. I am quite pleased. I probably will not use it as a shoulder bag but it will work very well to transport equipment in the car. The vibration in a car or aircraft will loosen every screw in a camera.

                        This bag is lighter than my previous bag of a similar size and still feels as sturdy. The bag had lot of configurable compartments making it easy to fit to my new camera equipment. My previous bag had a waste strap which is missing from this bag making it a bit more difficult for my shooting style. It is still a good bag, just wish it had this extra strap.

                                  I have a much larger camera bag that I typically use. This one seems to be good for when i don't need to carry a lot of gear with me.

                                  Nice bag for the right camera. Came bundled with Canon DX 1 body. This was not the right camera body to bundle with. Way to small to be useful with this camera. Only room for camera and single lens. Probably not useful for most photographers that would purchase this camera. For price point of this camera I would have bundled a medium to large backpack style bag. Would have been much more useful allowing to carry body and multiple lenses, filters and such. Bottom line well built bag wrong bundle.

                                    I really like the size of this bag. It is well constructed and small enough to throw over your shoulder when all you need is an extra lens or two.
                                    The only thing I wish it had was two zippers on the front pocket - so the pocket could be opened on top vs the low side.

                                        I haven't used this bag a whole lot, but it seems sturdy and durable. It is reinforced and has lots of the padded velcro peices for making different configurations. It seems like the bag could take some abuse and still protect the equipment inside. Lots of good storage space and pockets.
