      Picked this up without measuring my bag and when it came it was too big. Looked on @ for cheap canvas messenger bag and found one for $ that had the interior size that would work for this unit. Got the bag in the mail put the insert in and it fit perfect! Now I can put my 6d with 100L IS Macro on it and my 17/40 L on one side with room on the other side for filter and blower or even a 580exII! The bag has other pockets as well, so I added a bottle of water on the side of the bag and tool bag in one of the front pockets and the whole thing is still pretty light! Best of all it doesn't look like it has nearly $4K worth of gear in it!

      Assembled as shown in the advertisement, and inserted into another bag (which helps support its side walls), the inner dividers are so flimsy and weak that even my entry-level DSLR with a plastic prime lens would just about collapse it. Once I populated the pockets all the way around, this strengthened it so that while it would buckle, it would at least not collapse. A person with a mid range quality, metal chassis camera or one with a heavier medium zoom attached will not have good luck with this insert. On the other hand, a person with a longer zoom lens (5.5 - 6 inches long), one that can support the weight of the camera (internal focusing mechanism), could work because the lens would hold up the weight of the camera - you would stand/store the camera on its lens in that case. The alternative is to leave one big area where the camera can lay down inside on the bottom, and then just use the dividers for one or two more items. I can't close out the review without mentioning that the velcro hook and loop strips are not robust; they are easy to seperate and add to the low budget feel and operation of the insert. The mesh pockets on the lid were not usable to me because they do not secure closed. I found myself tucking the lid downward inside the bag to be out of the way (since the bag I put it into had a closing, zippered top), so it only represented extra bulk and was not useful.

          Comments about DSLR Camera Paddy Insert (Olive):

          I bought this as an insert to a messenger bag so as to be less conspicious on the street. Ultimately I chose this one because of its dimensions however the foam padding is a little thinner than I would like and the top flap is also too small for my liking. Given there is no velco or clip to secure it to the side of the insert or your bag it would have been preferable for the flap to be larger so as to either fold down inside or down the outside. This may or may not be an issue depending on how you use it but eb aware there are other padded inserts from B&H without these shortcomings, though they are somewhat smaller.

                Overall I like this insert. It seems well made and the pockets in the flap are useful. It is nice and roomy and can be configured different ways to hold multiple items. My biggest complaint is the bottom is not padded at all, which is a downfall, but not a deal breaker.

                  Comments about DSLR Camera Paddy Insert (Orange):

                  I bought this because I love to bring a camera everywhere. Especially back and forth to work. I pass through some beautiful places at times in the day when the light is just right. Sometimes I just have to stop and get the shot, but not if I don't have a camera and a lens or two. This lets me safely keep a body and a lens or two in my briefcase without having to be that geek with the camera bag. The price is right too. You really can't go wrong, you probably already have the bag you want, it is most likely only missing the the padded compartments. The bright yellow interior makes your stuff easy to see.

                  I bought this to protect my camera and lenses while using a variety of bags/purses I own and it works great. I keep the flap open to the outside so I really wish the card holders were open upside down but thats not their fault. Of course its never quite the "Perfect" size for each and every bag but its good enough and is keeping my lenses much more safe and clean.

                      This fit perfectly into my canvas messenger bag and lets me carry my camera with me without the world knowing. The sides are strong and well padded. It's not as configurable as my dedicated camera bag but does just fine for quick trips when I'm travelling light. It easily carries my Olympus OMD with the 75 mm lens & hood as well as 2 other lenses.

                        Nice assortment of dividers. Tall enough to slide a travel coffee mug into an empty opening. Helped me turn a commuting satchel into a safe way to carry my DSLR and a few lenses while exploring a city or new town.

                            I need several non photo related bags for work, a briefcase, a backpack, a hardware/installation bag. I've always wanted to bring more than just a camera to on-site visits, but did not have space for another bag. This insert works great! I can slip it into any of my bags and it holds a lot. Currently it holds my 60D with 15-85, a 10-22, and my 1.4 50mm, plus a G9, two battery chargers, gorilla tripod. I also like the top flap which some of the other inserts didn't have.
                            As usual great price and service from B&H and shipped within the week when I ordered over the phone in time for my next assignment. Very happy with the product and B&H!

                              I bought this insert to fit in my Tumi messenger bag. It fit in my bag nicely.Make sure you measure the size before you buy. I have Fuji X-E1 with 35 mm lens, a flash and a Nikon film SLR inside. When I put a SD card holder on the mesh pocket, everytime I open the flap , it will fall out. I wish the padding is a little bit thicker.
