    So I got this with my D7100 as a package deal and I am able to fit my D7100 with either the Nikkor 70-300 lens attached and the 35mm stowed beside it, or the 35mm attached and the 70-300mm stowed beside it in the same compartment, as well as the battery charger and another small compartment for another accessory if needed (remote, extra battery etc). The 70-300 is no small lens and it fits while connected and still has enough room for another full sized lens to be stored unattached and several other small accessories. Quality is great, front zipper has enough room for a few cleaning cloths or filters, an SD card or 2, and a spare battery in the pouches, and in the zipped mesh part, I keep the lens / camera caps and a remote, and it still has room for plenty.Regarding the picture attached, while it seems like what I say above doesn't hold true from the picture, I assure you it does. The Tulip on the 70-300 is on backward for either storage mentioned above and the 35mm hood stays on no matter what. The 70-300 attached fits in at a slight angle upward and diagonally in the bag. You can wedge something under the lens portion for stability.

    This came as a free be with a Nikon D610. One is supposed to put the camera into the middle of the bag with the lens down, and the screen up. This would then leave 4 compartments for additional gear. However, the hight of the dividers is quite high. With the camera in place, the lid is difficult to close, because the battery grip is simply too thick. I haven't tried with other DSLR bodies, but I guess a similar problem will occur. I now simply place the camera into the bag horizontally, but this leaves little space for additional lenses or gear.
    The quality of the bag appears to be sturdy, but I reckon for most DSLR bodies it would need to be one or two cm higher, for the concept to work. I would not have purchased this bag for my camera, and recommend trying it out if it fits your camera body. If it does, it is a nice interior concept.

        I carry my camera, extra lens, hood, batteries, and even a snack. It is very comfortable with the shoulder strap. I am not at all disappointed with it and would buy it again.

              This bag came bundled with my camera purchase and is a good, portable, lightweight, (yet sturdy) bag. Easily holds my Nikon D7100, two lenses, and charger. Bag is well padded so it protects my gear. Wish it were a bit bigger but for a hike it is the right size.

                  This is a great size bag for a D-SLR and a lens or two. It has several pockets for storing other items as well. Great size for hiking, traveling or just on the go to a photoshoot or walking around town.

                        Received this bag as part of a package with a 70D. It is nicely finished and has a lot of padded dividers. A good size for the 70D size camera and small primes or telephotos. Durability unknown since I have not had the bag that long.

                          I wanted a bag that was big enough for a camera and two spare lenses. This was actually a little smaller than I thought it would be, but it fits everything I need. Seems well padded. Plenty of pocket space for batteries, filters, etc. Shoulder strap is comfortable. All around, good for taking the camera places where I'm not worried about water.

                                      What a great bag. I had a smaller one & I needed one to carry two cameras plus have some extra room for carry on stuff to take along on a boat ride. Plenty of room for both and at a great price.

                                        I got it free with the Nikon D610.
                                        Is a nice bag, roomy, not my style of bags and I gave it to a friend, because I have 3 more bags and I don't need it...

                                          Just received this with my D610. Have just enough lenses to fill all the slots. Well made!

                                            Better than Canon camera bags. It has zippers, padded interior and a strap where you can attach this bag with a stroller/airport bag with wheels.

                                              I got this in a package deal, and I am impressed with it. There is enough room for multiple lenses and other gear inside the padding. The case is well padded but not hard, so don't expect to pack things on top of it. The front pocket could be a little bigger, but other than that I am pleased.

                                              Excellent protection and durability. While I store and transport my stuff in a Pelican, I use my Commando for on-site security and mobility.

                                                  Good size, will easily accommodate my D7100 with extra lenses, flash, spare batteries, filters, and charger. Does all this without ever feeling overcrowded or cramped.

                                                  The basic design has the added advantage of passing (to the casual eye) as a soft sided lunch box when carried by hand, and therefore helps to keep you from becoming a crime target while carrying and protecting your equipment.

                                                    This bag actually came bundled with a new camera body else I would not have purchased it. I am currently using it to hold some of my overflow gear that I don't normally use.
                                                    But this is NOT intended to be a negative review- I just have a lot of camera bags!

                                                    The Commando 36 is a pretty nice basic camera bag: sturdy, a good amount of space in a fairly small bag (1 body and a few medium size lenses or 2 bodies with smallish lenses) with some accessory pockets.
                                                    It has more room and is better made than my first few bags by far, and yet it is no larger.

                                                    The only real negative for this bag- it is not really a bag you can work out of, just one for transporting gear somewhere before you take your gear out and put the bag away while taking pictures.

                                                    It has enough food for my camera body and three lenses. And also enough room for my accessories.

                                                          I use this bag for my Canon 70D, and it is just the right size for what I need. I store my camera, lens, batteries, SD Cards, and a few other odds and ends in the bag. It is comfortable and easy to carry. The only drawback is that there isn't a whole lot of extra room, so when I get more accessories for my camera, I am going to have to find something bigger to carry everything in.
