      Interior has lots of room that I can customize to fit my gear. My only negative comment is the zipper that opens/closes the unit get caught on the zipper cover.

          Comments about Ruggard Thunderhead 15 DSLR & Tablet Backpack:

          I bought this bag specifically for two reasons. 1. It met the requirements for carry on baggage and 2. It was specifically designed to also hold an ipad. I wanted something I was going to be able to carry on an airplane but that would also serve the purpose of carrying my ipad and my wallet, while also carrying all my photography equipment and this bag does just that. It is a tad bit bulky, but it definitely serves the purpose that I bought it for. It is also a little heavy empty, which makes it even moreso when it is full. It has tons of protection in it and the velco walls and pockets help to customize the interior to your needs. I haven't had it very long but it is definitely been a huge help so far.

            I needed a small around town backpack and this one fits the bill. I have a Canon T5i, 2 lenses one small (50mm) and one larger one and both fit just right. Enough pockets for extras (batteries, filters, mem cards) and personal items. Love it that it also has the chest and waist strap and rain guard.

              Comments about Ruggard Thunderhead 15 DSLR & Tablet Backpack:

              I was looking for a camera backpack that could carry not only my photo gear but also other essentials for day hikes and this pack offers plenty of room. I especially like the strap across the chest to keep the pack in place when climbing to get to certain locations for those ideal shots.
