like all the compartments, very good cushioning, well made zippers, easy to access items, price is cheaper then in Europe, fits our Nikon D5200 and additional lenses and gear, also like the iPad compartment feature.
Excellent order, shipping,tracking and customer service department from B&H Photo! Good to be the first in the USA to own this well made product. Product discription is accurate. Will also be ordering the Mirage 6 too from B&H !

Mirage 4 Photo/Tablet Backpack

This backpack is sturdy and protects the camera and lens very well. The little compartments keep the lens and camera in place and secure. They are not moving around inside the backpack Read complete review

This backpack is sturdy and protects the camera and lens very well. The little compartments keep the lens and camera in place and secure. They are not moving around inside the backpack
However, it is way to confining. There is no room for anything else but a camera, a lens and a flash attachment. I could use a little more room. There is no side pocket for a bottle of water.
The best part about it, it looks real classy.

      This small backpack has plenty of room for my Pentax K-S2 and both my 18-50mms and 55-300mms lenses. Plus there is additional room for 2 more lenses and a flash and my Lumix ZS50 all in the bottom portion. The small pockets are great for extra SD cards and lens cleaner. The side zipper is wonderful for getting my camera out quickly. The top The top pocket is perfect for an additional body plus extra batteries, filters, etc. The back pocket is great for a tablet or a paper pad for note taking. Since I live in Costa Rica and the insane amount of rain we get, the rain-fly is a huge benefit. My tripod fits great on the bag, along with my Joby. This is one extremely versatile backpack at this price. ... I only wish it had straps on the bottom for the tripod for rainy days. One other downside is that you need to remove the tripod to access the main portion, but that really isn't a big deal.

        I was looking for a small bag to fit my Macbook Air and my camera and this is it. I can carry around my GH4 and a couple extra lenses. Everything fits nice and tight with no moving around. Very adjustable. Staff says in one of the answered question that this doesn't fit the 11" Macbook Air, not true its perfect.

        The product was received in timely manner, in excellent condition. This item is too small for my needs, guess I didn't pay close attention to the dimensions. The items is well made and should last a long time. Have ordered several items from B&H and will continue to do so in the future and will recommend to friends for most of the purchases as well.

          Comments about Tamrac Mirage 4 Photo/Tablet Backpack (Black/Gray):

          After looking for 2 months I found the perfect item to carry my Nikon 5200 and accessories. I especially like the zippers to open and close. (I found the clips too hard to quickly open on cases I looked at). So glad I waited. There are lots of options for storing gear and it even will hold a small tripod and room for my point and shoot! It is smaller than a traditional backpack, which I also like. I was going to use this for travel as a purse of sorts. After the fact, I learned that some tour places out of the country may not allow backpacks so I will have to plan accordingly. I go to B&H for my camera needs. Maybe an IPAD will be in my future....

                Comments about Tamrac Mirage 4 Photo/Tablet Backpack (Black/Gray):

                I needed a day bag that could hold my camera kit, a tablet, and some other sundries. This fit the bill. The straps are comfortable, and it fits my kit just fine. In it you'll find:

                Canon 50D
                Canon 24mm 2.8 STM
                Canon 50mm 1.8 STM (w/hood)
                Canon 55-250mm 4-5.6 STM (w/hood)
                Rokinon 8mm 3.5 Fisheye

                Plus battery charger and batteries.

                Would be even better for a mirrorless kit, but since most of my glass is small, it works out.

                The only downside is that it's a bit difficult to get my DSLR out of, and then back into, the main compartment. This isn't a big deal since when I'm out shooting the camera is never in the bag, but it's worth mentioning for people with pro sized bodies.

                    Comments about Tamrac Mirage 4 Photo/Tablet Backpack (Black/Gray):

                    A plethora of compartments. I wondered if my Panasonic G7 would be swimming around in it. It fits well. It's nice to know that if I get a bigger camera, it'll fit too.
                    I like the rain protection piece, but have yet to test it out. At least it looks good.
                    I also wondered if my full size iPad would fit because it has a thick cover on it. Quite snug it is, but it fits just fine.

                      I wanted this for daily hauling of my gear in hopes that perfect photo presents itself. I wanted my Nikon D7100, one or two lens options. I also needed something that would work for airplane travel - light weight but keeps my hands free for luggage and ID.
                      It works great and looks good. But be aware - it is a tight compartment for the equipment. Pro's and con's to that. Everything is secure but it may take a bite longer to extract what you want. Not as bulky as a regular backpack. Overall 4.5 stars in my book.

                      Comments about Tamrac Mirage 4 Photo/Tablet Backpack (Black/Gray):

                      like all the compartments, very good cushioning, well made zippers, easy to access items, price is cheaper then in Europe, fits our Nikon D5200 and additional lenses and gear, also like the iPad compartment feature.
                      Excellent order, shipping,tracking and customer service department from B&H Photo! Good to be the first in the USA to own this well made product. Product discription is accurate. Will also be ordering the Mirage 6 too from B&H !
