    Mountainsmith Spectrum 12L reviews

    Spectrum 12L Camera Backpack (Heritage Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not perfect 5 stars for quality construction (made if Vietnam), materials, light weight and xlnt padding in both top and bottom areas. There is a hinged separator (velcro on 3 sides) between the top and bottom. 3 stars for the not-well-thought-out bottom camera area: the 8x8x4.5" camera compartment comes with two almost-full width velcro dividers so you can create 3 horizontal compartments. There is also one 4.5" high divider. However, the only access to the bottom compartment is via the one side door. The result is if you use the vertical divider in one of the 3 horizontal areas, you will not have access to the other side of the divider (!) If there were doors on both sides of the pack I would have rated it 5 stars. The side access door to the bottom compartment implies that the pack could be used as a sling bag. No. Unlike the (discontinued) Kata 3-N-1 backpack, the shoulder straps are not designed to convert to cross-body carrying. You'll have to remove the pack to access the camera compartment. All in all, a disappointment for what should have been a 5 star product.
