    ikan IBG-EXP reviews

    Explorer Bag is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A giant bag that carries everything and more This bag is HUGE. It's also pretty cool as in it has M.O.L.L.E loops all over the place so you can add accessories that have the correct mounting points. It's so big you kinda need to buy some stuff to put in it. But by doing that, it is also fairly heavy. It has a nice hip strap system to distribute the load and fully adjustable shoulder straps as well, as a tripod carrier. There are two things with this bag that bothers me a little bit, and it's the bags lack of smaller internal compartments for little items like Pens, biz cards, and other stuff other than small camera gear. I just bought a small zip up folio to do that and I throw it in the GIGANTIC laptop file

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The quality of this bag isn't good. The quality of this bag matches its price - LOW!I bought this bag last year while it was on sale for $. I thought it was a great deal since it was big and deep enought to carry all my gear (D700 with 70-200 VR II plus battery grip, D800 with 24-70 plus battery grip along with filters and other accessories. However the first time I took this bag out on a trip to Europe the problem with its shoulder straps appeared. First it was the right shoulder strap that had a minor tare. I was careful not putting too much stress on that strap. However while I was at the airport ready to come home, the right shoulder strap ripped half way through. I had to hand carry that bag most of the time rest of the way. Also the left shoulder strap was starting to tare as well. A bag of this size is designed for a lot of gears that can be heavy. One obviously would not use it to carry marshmallows, and yet the quality of this bag does seem to suggest it's only good for carrying marshmallows.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite there IKAN I bought this bag two days before leaving on a 21 day filming tour throughout Europe. I bought the bag because the reviews I saw said it was big and could hold a lot of gear as well as a 17 laptop with ease. It is true that it can hold a lot of gear and a very large laptop, but when you make a bag that can hold that much you need to design it to handle the weight of that much gear. After two days on the road I realized that I could not put my laptop in the backpack as it was causing too much stress on the bag straps. On around the 7th day of the trip I carefully removed the bag from the overhead bin and noticed that one of the main straps was tearing away from the bag. The straps HAVE t be the strongest part of the bag. They have to have great stitching and support. This bag is weak in that area and also wimpy with the quality of the foam padding throughout. Super nice looking bag, and really like the over design, I just wish they had put more quality into the fabric, stitching and padding and upped the price and I would have gladly paid more. If your needs are lightweight and your budget is lower this may be the bag for you. While in Germany I had to buy a new bag and bought the Thinktank Airport Accelerator backpack which was nearly triple the price of the IKAN bag but it can handle the journey and demands on the road much better. And it holds my 17 laptop as well. ---

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Explorer Bag by ikan I needed a larger backpack for my video camera and equipment. I wanted a pack that also could handle a small tri-pod that can be transported on the outside of the case. The backpack comes with a unique design that allows for this. This will require you to have the right kind of tri-pod, which there are tri-pods available out there that will work well with the pack. Another plus...it is designed to easily add on other small pack accessories that will attach to the outside of the pack. Awesome backpack. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ikan can do the job Only been out with the back pack of couple of times, but it rides nicely on the hips and the adjustable should and chest straps make it easy to balance. Loads of space so when I'm packing to go out I don't have make the hard choices of which lenses to leave behind. This might mean I'm lugging things I don't need, but that is a good problem to have. The pack balances well and distributes the weight evenly. I'm looing at this a way to pack gear into the backcountry. This is not a grab and go bag. I still use a regular gadget bag for shoots, but for getting in and out of the wild, this pack is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Explorer Backpack carries a lot of gear I recently purchased the Ikan Explorer Backpack for my Nikon D7100 and other support gear. I have added add a number of Molle pouches to increase the utility. The main Ikan bag is divided for camera gear and not for hiking. That's fine but to make it carry things like first aid gear, rain gear, water, and maybe some food and spare clothes, the molle attachments work great. The Ikan holds a 17 inch laptop with ease. Warning, like all backpacks this one weighs the same as whatever you pack it full of. It's not the bags fault if it get heavy. Leave some stuff out. the nice part of the Molle system is that things can be attached and removed to change the configuration. I am waiting for a 150-600mm lens which will require reconfiguring the bag. It now holds two 100-300mm zooms, wide angle zooms and the D7100 with power grip plus three flashes, wireless flash controllers and remote cable releases. Outside attached units carry filter sets, spare batteries, compass, etc. I have loaded the bag to about 50lbs and found it comfortable to carry with the chest and belt straps used. It appears as well made as any backpack I've used and appears rugged. Very versitile backpack. Well padded. Not a unit for bopping about the city. I would not take as a carry-on bag. I think they will make you check it at the gate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bag and excellent price Reading some reviews I wondered if I may be buying less quality than I wanted. �Upon opening the package and Bag I was pleased with the quality and the room it had for my equipment. �I'm glad I went with my belief that B&H would sell only quality products even thought he price for this equipment bag was a lot less than other mfg. bags. �The material is sturdy, the zippers sturdy, the straps strong, the inside compartments for lenses ample.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid Bag for tons of gear! I wanted a bag that I could carry all my gear around when traveling and shooting landscapes. This bag, on paper, fits that call. The bag has a ridiculous amount of features and is fairly well thought out. It has enough loops on the outside to fulfill even the most hipster backpacking photographer's dreams of strapping their hammocks, nalgenes and whatever else to the bag. My first complaint with the bag was that it felt too light to be built well. And i think that is the case, it skips out on hard padding and quality velcro. I never thought I'd miss the ridiculously stubborn lowepro velcro until now. I've put things in this bag to later on open it up and see dividers have just given up and now two compartments are one. I can't be mixing sony batteries with nikon glass, that's madness! To be fair, the price was so low, I had to try it out. Not too mad about it. All said, I will make the bag work since it is pretty, compact enough, can hold all my gear and is comfortable to wear. I'm retiring a lowepro pro rover because getting in and out of that bag was ridiculous. It's as if the bag was designed to be packed before you go on your trip and then only accessed when you got back.
