Whether you use this backpack for your camera equipment (its design goal) or just as a travel backpack, there's a lot to like. It's padded & water proof with interior dividers that you can velcro into place to create compartments. Want to separate your shoes from your coat or your camera from your lenses? Easy peezy! The zips are the real genius behind the bag. You should look up photos to really get an idea, but the way you access the bag (from the side, an easier access point than the top when you're carrying it) makes it so easy to access the different compartments without having to take everything out. There's also lots of little pockets and pouches that are helpful, straps that are comfortable, side pockets that stretch big without staying bulky when not in use, a luggage band for holding onto your roller bag's extended handle, and it looks really sleek all zipped up. So many smart little features that will make you say, "Oh my gosh they thought of everything!" Really pleased with this purchase!
