Ruggard Thunderhead 75 Reviews

Lots of storage

Perfect for my situation.

It's gonna get heavy

By Matthew

Sturdy and well-designed, and the laptop sleeve is large enough for a 16-inch MacBook, but once you fill this with your kit, beware it'll get heavy and awkward. Flying with this bag is particularly uncomfortable.

Tons of Room

This backpack is huge! I was easily able to organize my gear and still have plenty of room for more.

A place for everything

By Ron

Very well made pack with lots of padding. I bought this model to have a place for everything related to photography as opposed to being a backpack I would use often. However, while I would not attempt Everest with this on my back, it is very comfortable considering the size. I wore it this morning in my garden which involved a lot of leaning over to pick produce and the pack stayed in place very well. I had a Sigma 150 - 600 lens, camera body, two others lenses and various gear in the pack and it weighed 14 pounds. The bowed shoulder straps work well and the heavily padded waist strap does a great job of keeping the pack in place and transferring weight to your hips. There are lots of dividers to configure about anything you would want. My only suggestion would be color coded pulls on the many zippers to easily locate the one you want to use.

More than I expected!

At first glance I though was a regular backpack but once I got it the inner space is amazing. I can basically put all my gear, everything! and even attach my tripod easily. With plenty pockets to put your chargers, batteries, anything that you want and the best of everything is super comfortable to carry away. If you have a lot of equipment to carry to the sessions or even to do nature, this is the backpack to go. Worth every penny. Recommended

question

Can you put more pictures up? It would be nice to see how the inside is configured. Is it TSA certified for airline travel? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, we are only able to put up the images given to us by the manufacturer. The airline carry on restrictions set out by the FAA are 14 x 9 x 22 ( L x D x H ), and the Ruggard Thunderhead 75 measures 13.0 x 9.25 x 20.5 , making this bag appropriate for carry-on size.

Are the interior dimensions listed in the Specs referring to the space in the main compartment or does it also include the laptop space? It says the interior is 6.5" deep.
Asked by: Brian and Tisha
Ruggard Thunderhead 75 DSLR & Laptop Backpack internal dimensions of 19.5 x 12 x 6.5" are only for the main compartment. The dimensions for the laptop pocket is separate and does not affect the depth of the main compartment.

I just received this pack today. It is huge!!! I need something to carry my Canon R6 (no grip) with Sigma 150-600 attached. Does anyone know of a pack that will hold the R6 and Sigma which is not this big? I don't care to carry a bunch of other lenses, just the R6/lens combo.
Asked by: Tammy
You can always go smaller, but if you travel, there's room for extras as carry on. The compartments are configurable, it holds my 17in laptop, chargers, and lenses with room to spare. What you don't carry today, you may carry tomorrow.

Would this accommodate a D500 attached to a 200-500, PLUS a D750 attached to either a 24-70, or 16-35 at same time?
Asked by: Brad
All will go in one bag, yes. D500 + 200-500 mounted but then will have to put D750 as body only and the two lenses separately.

question

This bag looks very familiar to the TT StreetWalker Pro. Has anyone compared the two?
Asked by: Michael
They are similar bags but the manufacturers have designed them differently. This Ruggard Thunderhead 75 DSLR & Laptop Backpack is a larger bag than the ThinkTank Photo StreetWalker Pro V1 Backpack, and more expensive too.
