    Ruggard Outrigger 45 reviews

    Outrigger 45 Backpack (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 336.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Reliable Backpack for the Price When I walked into B&H with the intention of purchasing a new camera bag, I did not expect to come out the door with this. Honestly I was sceptical about this backpack as I'm more comfortable with messenger bag and shoulder strapped bags, but I'm satisfacted with having this bag. For $$, you have something that can easily hold a DSLR and a Camcorder along with a 70-300mm lens and other countless accessories. There's even two straps under the bag to hold a tripod!I will have to note that when wearing the backpack, it felt awkward as the bag tends to sag due to length of the bag, however this can be overlooked as I typically wear messenger bags on a daily basis.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not great! I'm a pro photographer and have several bags. I purchased this bag on sale and I think I paid like $29.99. Fits my 5DMKIII, and several lenses. I've had it for over 6 months and no issues with the zippers (yet). Has nice compartments for batteries, memory cards, etc.. Here's what I do not like. The Velcro on the compartment slides suck. Not sure if it's the Velcro or the padding wall, but these will not stick very well. I'll put my 24-105 or 24-70 lenses and the separators come off. Definitely need to improve this, but I guess you get what you pay for, right? Would I recommend this for a hobbyist, probably. Would I recommend it for a pro photographer, likely not.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very capable pack Really have enjoyed using this pack over the last few days. There is plenty of room for everything and unlike my bags in the past, if something is missing the bag doesn't feel lopsided. Straps are very comfortable and the rain jacket is very handy! My only problem was that the bag came delivered with a rip in the side. It was small but has grown over the last week. I did not send the bag back because I was in dire need of carrying a bunch of gear. I will just have to fix it myself now I am sure. Even with a rip, this bag makes me feel very confident in it's ability and I am sure that this was a fluke of an issue. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outrigger 45 Backpack by Ruggard I use it for mobile video and photo shooting and carry my Canon T4I & Vixia HF R20, lenses, shotgun mic, travel & mini tripod, and random other things I have on me. I was excited to see that it can hold everything I need. I have been considering buying another one to use as a grip/tool bag. When I'm carry all my gear, I do not feel fatigued while doing so. It sits well on my frame and has several chips to keep it tight against me. While I never have had to use it. The fold away rain cover wraps around the whole bag and appears to be efficient.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was free This backpack came free in the bundle that I chose. My intention was to put it on @ because I had no desire to keep it however, my mom liked it for use with her Nikon D3100 and lenses. I bought the Nikon D7100 and the zippers lay right across the hot shoe on the top of the camera. In my opinion, this is a terrible design flaw because over time it will scratch and eventually damage the top of your camera. For my moms D3100 it seems perfect, but for a bigger DSLR, expect the zipper to ruin your camera over time. The best part about this backpack was that it was free. It also looks like a child's lunch box strapped to your back when worn.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful backpack I have been using this product for 2 months now, I have travelled quite a lot with it and the movable dividers have come quite handy in storing not just camera equipment but other accessories (even clothes on some occasions) as well. Zippered pockets are useful to store personal belongings (wallet, passport, etc) The rain cover that comes with the bag has also proven itself to be useful in several rainy days. The only negative thing I could say is that it can be too big for daily use, especially if you don't have other lenses to carry. If you don't mind carrying a half empty bag it won't trouble you though. It is a comfortable bag.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Camera Body + Grip = Does NOT Fit I have a Canon 60D with grip attached, and the bag will not close. The top of the camera sticks up too far to allow you to zip the bag closed easily/without force. Pretty lame when the first selling point on the site is For DSLR & Grip & Attached 70-200 f/2.8. The interior has a weird design where the depth gets shallower as you move to the top of the bag. I think the camera body and grip would fit just fine at the bottom of the bag, but the interior spacers are cut to account for the varying depth in the interior so you can't just turn them around. It's a poor design with a misleading selling point. Returning ASAP...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great, but free is good This review only applies to hobbyist use, as I am not a professional photographer. This backpack was included in a camera kit I purchased. Therefore, it was for all intents and purposes free. As a free bag, it is just fine. I would not, however, purchase this bag on its own. The padding is protective and modifiable. The compartment space is sufficient to carry a good amount of gear, and divided well enough to separate accessories from the main gear. It even includes a tablet pocket, albeit not heavily protected. The backpack falls down on comfort. The straps are uncomfortably stiff and gather too closely at the top thereby pinching the neck. The bag sits awkwardly high on the back, and the lumbar padding is slightly too high on the back of the pack. I've hiked roughly 8 miles at a time with this pack over several days. By the end of each day I had clear hot spots from the straps and padding. Three improvements would help: 1) anatomically shaped straps that attach with wider spacing at the top of the pack; 2) drop the lumbar pad by 2 inches so that it coincides with the bottom of the bag; and, 3) include a padded (even a lightly padded) lumbar strap as the size of this bag allows the user to carry sufficient weight that a substantive lumbar strap is warranted. Alternatively, this backpack may make a good temporary city-type bag for walking car-to-shoot and back. It is not an outdoor backpack.
