    Mountainsmith 14-81170-65 reviews

    14-81170-65 Swift FX 4.5L Camera Lumbar Pack (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack for smaller cameras I bought this for the EOS M, holds all 3 of my lenses, Manfrotto tabletop tripod, (added another divider from another bag I have to keep tripod from scripting lenses), three batteries, charger with room to spare and if you like to use larger lenses with the adapter for the EOS M it's deep enough for those. I can keep my 55-250STM on the body stored vertically and its just big enough without fighting it.. With the dividers removed I'm even able to fit my 5Dlll with 70-300L on but horizontal, it's a squeeze but doable in a pinch, with a smaller lens not as tight of fit. I really like the size of the bag, it's smaller and it's more comfortable than the Lowepro 100 and better looking (in my opinion). It is very well built and has a padded shoulder strap which I probably won't use a lot because I got it to wear while on my motorcycle, bicycle and hiking which is great because it has the water bottle holder too. The Lowepro is a nice bag too but seems bigger with less room, rode lower on me and had a tendency to flop more even after cinching the straps very tight, the Mountainsmith has stiffer sidewalls so it maintains its shape better. The bottle holder on this is on the outside of the cinching straps whereas the Lowepro cannot be tightened without cinching the bottle too and then you have to loosen the strap to remove the bottle. It also comes with a hidden rain cover which is tucked underneath in its own slot and has its own little elastic strap so it cannot be lost. On the padded waist strap there is a zippered cell phone or wallet pocket, I have an iPhone 4S which fits nicely and it has color coded mesh pockets so you know a good battery from a bad one or used cards vs full. On the other side of the belt there is a mesh pocket for lens caps or whatever else. On the back is another good sized zippered pocket, I keep my 90EX flash in but i will accommodate a bigger one, you can keep batteries or cards in too. The bag is supposedly made of recycled material of some sort, maybe I'm wearing your wife's old underwear, I don't know. Anyway, I don't think you can go wrong. I like mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swift FX Camera Bag by Mountainsmith As a background for this bags selection was that it would be only large enough to carry 2-3 Micro Four Third lenses of any size and accessories and would carry a water bottle since my daily hiking is done in the mountains of southern New Mexico. The bag comes with two dividers that are removable and positionable via Velcro attachments, a removable shoulder strap, carry strap and a rain cover stored at the bottom of the bag. There is a zippered outer storage compartment with two mesh dividers that will hold a cell phone among other accessories and an attached clip for keys. The top of the bag is a clamshell design that when opened completely can be folded back to allow access to lenses without getting in the way. There is also a zippered compartment located below the top on the inside of the bag. The padded hip belt complete with compression straps has a zippered compartment on one side that is capable of holding two batteries and spare memory cards. The other side of the belt has an open elastic mesh compartment that I use to carry the neck strap, a Peak Design strap, which is quickly accessed when needed. As a reference the bag will hold an Olympus 12-40 pro and 40-150 pro lens without the extender and another smaller prime lens in the vertical position within the bag. If the 40-150 pro lens is omitted the bag will hold any combination of three Micro Four Third lenses. If a 40-150 pro lens is carried with the extender mounted, the lens assembly would need to be placed in horizontally with other lenses placed horizontally above it. If the waist strap is not used and only the shoulder strap is needed then the two halves of the waist belt can be stored behind the padded sleeve area which forms the back part of the bag. This sleeve enables me to attach the bag through a standard hip belt attached to either a day pack or full backpack when desired. The waist belt is wide enough at the point of attachment to the bag and in combination with the compression straps, which do not go over the water bottle holder so as not to make it difficult to remove, that even with the heavier lenses the bag does not fold over and away from the body. Overall the bag is comfortable to wear for long periods and the constructions is of high quality. The bag is capable of holding my Olympus EM-10 body with lens attached along with another lens if desired.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Waist and shoulder bag I love the quality of the bag and the price...however the zipper doesn't open or close easily. I find that frustrating!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made but not for me I wanted a not-huge bag to hold my Sony a6000 and an extra lens, one that I could carry inside a tote bag if I wanted to do so. I thought this bag was it because you can store the waist straps under a panel on the back according to the description--you can, but..... First off, the bag is very well made (with two design exceptions) at a fair price, and if I found a bag in this brand that does meet my needs, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. The extra pockets on the waist band, front and in the lid are well thought out. But I have arthritis in my hands. Trying to wedge and stuff the waist band into the panel on the back was nearly impossible because it was so snug. When I finally got the waist band tucked in, the back was easily 1 1/2 inches thick, which pushed in on the available space inside the bag making it awkward to pull the camera (and mine is on the small side) out. Second, the top has something rigid in it, which by itself is fine. However, the flap that covers the zipper is (as is usual) stitched into the back side seam. That makes it awkward to flip the top/lid open, especially with the waistband stored. If the zipper extended an inch or so around each corner to the back, it would be much easier to open the top. It may be that what I want doesn't exist, but I'll keep looking. And this bag really is well made and, mostly, thought out. If I didn't need to store the waistbands, I would have kept this one.
