Really living up to its name, this bag is tough enough to take the knocks on the wildest expedition, and extremely comfortable to wear.

It has a full complement of weather-proof zips, which is just as well as the slip-over rain cover is sold as an optional extra.

The main compartment is huge, given over solely to photo gear. There’s enough room for a camera with fitted lens, plus up to ten other lenses or accessories.

The centre section of the main compartment is long enough for a camera with a long, super-telephoto lens attached, or for two cameras with smaller lenses fitted.

Extra external compartments are well implemented, with smart organisers, and there’s also a separate compartment for fairly small laptops.

Our Verdict
Pros… Supremely tough and well padded, loads of space
Cons… Rain cover is an optional extra, no quick-access flap
WE say… Wonderfully secure and comfortable

Score: 5/5
