GEM

Item details

The GEM photo backpack is an ideal product for someone who can't strech to the prices of the better known manufactures such as LowPro.
Although I have only had the product for a week thus it has not had too much exposure to the rough and tumble of being out in the field, it does appear to be a well made product.
The only slight down side are the internal dividers these could be better.
I have manged to fit in my Canon 40D attached to a Sigma 50-500, spare Canon body (350D), compact bins, 100-300 lens, 18-55 kit lens, 80-200mm lens plus a converter all within the main body of the bag. This still leaves room for spare memory cards cable release etc in the various small pockets around the bag. It does come with a water proof jacket that is stored within the bag so a slight down side compared to the Lowpro design and I have yet to see just how water proof this is. It also comes with a well designed tripod holder with a small fold out pocket to take the feet, although I would not like to put a heavy tripod into it.
In summary if you are after a reasonable priced large camera backpack its well worth considering at being oftered currently for less than 40 on Amazon (Oct 2011).
