The DCB-309 SLR Camera Backpack from Case Logic may appear compact on the outside but it sure holds its weight in gear. Stash your two DSLR bodies inside-one with a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached. And, there's room left over for two smaller lenses and a flash. Every photographer needs a laptop and this backpack will hold your 15" MacBook Pro or a 14" PC in a separate, padded zippered compartment. Not enough? Take along your tripod stored neatly within the side zippered pocket. Secure it with the included buckle and you're ready to head out for a day's shoot. Inside the bag, a padded divider system allows you to arrange the interior to accommodate whatever gear you need.

For the small stuff, inside the front lid you'll find two zippered accessory pockets for cables, filters, cleaning cloths or any other small item you might need. The front contains a small, zippered compartment for really quick access items such as your passport, ID, cash or keys. No need to delve inside the depths of the bag to grab them. For those long days in the field, there's a mesh water bottle pocket on the side.

The nylon exterior is enhanced by a padded front panel bolstered to protect your gear from incidental impact. The included weather hood serves to protect your pack from the elements when you're caught in marginal weather. When you don't need the rain cover, just roll it up and fold it into its own stuff sack.

The backpack straps are adjustable and supported by a sternum strap for added stability while walking. A top carry handle is for quickly retrieving the pack from the trunk of your car or out of a closet. This very practical pack is backed by Case Logic's 25-year warranty.

Designed to fit two DSLR cameras with one lens up to 70-200mm f/2.8 attached
15" MacBook Pro or a 14" PC will fit in the padded laptop compartment
Adjustable divider system provides customizable organization for 2-3 additional smaller lenses, flash, and other camera accessories
Unzip side pocket, slide your tripod inside, and secure it at the top with the adjustable buckle (serves as additional accessory storage when not using a tripod)
Weather hood fits snugly over the bag to protect from the elements; when not in use, roll into its stuff sack for storage

A padded front panel ensures your camera and accessories are protected from impact

    I bought this bag because I needed a backpack that could fit 2 dslrs with medium sized lenses still attached for video purposes. It does this, but the fit is so tight that it gets a little challenging to remove and put back the camera that rests in the upper section because it's tucked under the curve of the bags shape. (you can see it in the photo of the bag exterior). It's still in new condition, so maybe it just needs breaking in, but other than it does the job.

    The other sub compartments are also a tight fit and not as spacious as ones in the Canon Backpack, but it's padded so that's a good plus.

    Overall a very good buy for what it costs and I can carry a reasonably high amount of gear in a compact bag without using a larger more cumbersome more expensive rolling bag.

    What it fits in main compartment:
    2 Canon 60Ds (one with 50mm f1.4 and other with 18-135mm)
    2 other small lenses,
    1 rode videomic
    1 Bescor LED video light
    7 LP-E6 batteries

    outer compartment:
    SD Card wallet (8 cards)
    2 pairs of Sony UWP-V1 wireless lavs
    Tiffen soft pack filter case

    the laptop compartment:
    Canon 2 LP-E6 Chargers

    the extra padded pocket that would hold the rain cover:
    Zoom H4N

    I got this pack and was very happy with all the features, handy organizers, and obviously loved the price. But here is the catch, if you try to carry a lens with an attached tripod mount bracket (in my case a nikon 70-200 @2.8) the main compartment is to shallow and therefore stresses the zipper to close it no matter where u try to position the lens. Sure enough after one round trip of carrying on the plane the zipper stated to pull lose from the fabric at that stress point and I had to return it. Good thing my trip was only days after purchase so B&H took it back no problem.So as long as you don't have any lenses with attached mounting brackets then get this and you will love it. But for true pro gear, go bigger and spend more.

        I often take my camera to work but end up having to carry my camera bag and my bookbag that I had for work. I saw this and decided to buy. Plenty of room for my D800 and my 13" macbook pro from work fits in the laptop compartment. Plenty of additional storage as well.

          Last year I bought the Case Logic SLRC-206 back pack and I love it. I needed a 2nd bag and expected the same build quality out of this one. Nope. Not even close. NOTHING stays in place. All of my gear shifts around up and under the pouches. The material is cheap too. I wouldn't trust this pack with anything of value or to travel with. Stay away from this[*] quality bag and get the SLRC-206.

            I ordered the bag to keep my SONY slt a57, my 15-55 mm lense and my 55-300mm lense.. and other accessories. It fits it all so well! In fact a camera with a much larger body could fit easily too. There are small zipped places for small objects, plenty of comparments for bigger objects, it fits snugly around everything and keeps everything safe. It also has a laptop compartment.. it is perfect for a carry on bag when flying.. we can keep the things dear to us very safely. Worth every penny. I am very happy with it

I have the camera and lens in it along with a 18-135mm lens, flash, cleaning supplies, cables and othe misc. items in it. The rain cover is a nice addition. I love this bag and for the price you can't go wrong.

                            The backpack is a good size for carrying a camera, 3-4 lens plus speedlite and had alot of smaller pockets for memory cards, cables, etc. It had alot of padding to protect your lens. Unfortunately the backpack was not deep enough to hold the 7D with a grip, and had to be returned- thanks to bhphoto ro making the process extremely easy.
                            Even though the baakpack was returned, it was to right size for light travel with camera equipment. It would be great for day hike on the trails.

                            A very comfortable backpack.
                            My Nikon D7000, 18-75 mm lens, fisheye lens,60mm macro lens,80-400mm zoom lens, set of extension tubes,Right angle view finder .Plus my Nikon p510 ,All fits nicely in the pack and is very easy to carry and does not put strain on the back.I am 67 years old and have worn out a few camera bags and packs . So far this is the best pack I have had.
                            The one disappointment was carrying a tripod it is ok for a toy or a monopod but not a decent size tripod.

                                It's a tight fit. The padding is not thick enough to entrust the bag to
                                others but the exterior dimensions are small enough that it will fit
                                under the seat in front of you so entrusting the bag to others should
                                never happen.

                                Looking at the options in the market similar to this and the price you need to pay for them, I think this is really a good deal.

                                At the same time, I will say this is an option for person carrying very selective items and not a whole bunch of them, as there is limited space in, but still good enough for specific day shooting requirement.

                                The biggest drawback I felt about this, you can't carry a full size tripod in the back. May be a small monopod can fit in. I personally like carrying my tripod everywhere and with this bag, I need to carry it separately in another bag, which I feel little inconvenient. That is the reason 4 Stars. For beginners, I think its perfect buy.

                                in short its recommended for beginner or amateurs with not much gears, definitely not for people with lot gear to carry with.

                                  This is a great bag for day trips and what not. The zippers work well, when you need to quickly pull the camera out of the bag.. having a 70-200mm lens makes it a little hard for quick access, but great for storage. The 70-200 will fit fine with some extra room below the lens cap, to allow for some extra padding.

                                    I use 1 Nikon DSLR, 3 lenses, 1 Flash with an assortment of accessories. Customizable sections for lenses and cameras. Multiple pockets for small accessories. Only problem is when I attach tripod. The tripod makes the bag unbalanced and want to topple over.

                                    This bag is great! It has a padded sleeve pocket for your lab top, all sorts of pockets for SD cards and anything else you'd like to throw in them. I like this bag a lot, it has Velcro seperators for different lens and cameras, so you can configure your own set up. It has a monopod strap on the side of the bag. And also come with a tarp so if you ever get cought in the rain you can put it over you bag so you gears don't get ruined. I recommend this bag for anyone looking for a nice camera bag.

                                    Great bag. Great price. I have 1 camera with a fair amount of accessories, laptop & iPad. Bags that purchased in past never gave me enough room. With this purchase I have more room than I need at this point.

                                          My Case Logic DCB-309 can accomodate my Nikon D200, D5200, as well as my 18-270 and 28-300 Tamron lenses. It also leaves plenty of room for my 13inch Macbook Pro.
                                          The compartments are easily re-adjustable to include extra equipment.
                                          I wish I had purchased this back pack to replace my 12 year old one much sooner. It's great.

                                            The inside of the bag has adjustable cushioned velcro walls so that you can fit the walls around your camera for an ultimate fit and security. Also the space for your lap top is heavily cushioned as well. The straps are adjustable and it has a strap that secures firmly against your chest. "Great Bag" :D
