A tall, slim backpack, this one’s made with big glass in mind. Remove all the dividers and use the supplied collar for the rear of a lens, and the bag is a perfect fit for a monster lens like the Nikon 600mm f/4 AF-S VR.

Pop the dividers back in and it can accommodate a camera with attached lens, plus up to seven other lenses and accessories.

It’s equally adept at holding a camera with a long telephoto lens fitted, plus four other lenses.

There’s also an external zipped pocket, tripod attachment system, slip-on rain cover and a couple of internal mesh pockets.

Best of all, the backpack is really comfy to wear, even with very heavy lenses packed, thanks to plenty of padding in all the important areas around the back.

Our Verdict
Pros… Very well made and useful for oversized lenses
Cons… No laptop compartment or quick-access flap
WE say… Not just for big lenses, it’s very good for standard kit

Score: 4/5
