    Explore 40 Backpack Starter Kit with 2 Small Core Units (Sea Pine) is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very impressed by this bag I am not very happy with this bag. I have been struggling to install my A7S2 and myGH5 "ready to shoot" with lens and monitor in this bag using the the 2 small units. I have ended up using different padded insert bags and dividers that I already owned. I also find the bag heavy. I find the space in the upper pocket not sufficient to store small items such as batteries, grey card, filters etc. All in all I believe I have spent too much money in this bag while my mountain bag would have done the job just as well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from This config with 2 small units is terrible I deeply regret getting this while on sale from another famous camera website. I wish I got here so I could have returned without losing a ton on shipping. The quality of the bag feels good but the two small core units means you will HAVE to buy a medium unit to come up with some usable configuration to pack camera with lens and few other lenses and accessories. Still I feel the came bag is over designed like "Jack of all trades master of none". It should be fine to pack all gear for travel on flights but to take on field to shoot pictures makes this backpack cumbersome with lot of unnecessary space and inconvenient access to camera and water bottles, etc. Hard to explain but I find it's not simple and clean like say Mindshift backlight or Lowepro Protactic that cost much less and feels much better to take on field trip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best travel adventure backpack is finally here. I'm able to fit my Canon C200 with the handgrip and all my lenses + additional accessories in the main compartment. I have still plenty of room left for additional accessories on the top pocket, which is big enough to hold tons of gear. I don't know what the previous reviewer is talking about. This bag is spacious and not heavy at all. I've gone through at least a dozen bags. I travel full-time to remote places and I've been searching for a comfortable gear pack for a long time. The strength of this pack is actually in the way it sits on your back. You can adjust the straps like no other photo bags to fit exactly your torso. This means you will have a much better fit so that when you load up your bag nice and heavy you won't feel the load. In fact its so good at handling weight of equipment, you barely notice it on your back even if you are carrying 30 lbs. Everything about this bag is designed for easy access. The back panel opens to the side, the gear is easy to reach, the bag material is water resistant to a point that you don't really need any additional cover. The belt is somewhat thin but so well padded that it holds on your waist perfectly. Its a bit wide so the weight is nicely distributed. The shoulder straps are excellent, well designed and hold on to the body tight enough but with a room to move. I've never been this impressed with a gear bag and my search is now over. Could use an extra small pocket in the front for batteries, etc. but otherwise incredible job!
