One of the best features of this bag is the ability to be accessible. Wherever I was I could always swing the bag around and access my camera gear on the convenient side access pocket. My water bottle was also conveniently positioned for an easy grab on the side mesh pocket of the bag.
Capacity was exactly what I was looking for as well. It held all the camera gear I needed, DSLR, mid to wide range F/2.8 zoom, wide angle F/2.8 zoom, 50mm F1.4, mid size flash and of course some small accessories, too. The best part was I could also hold a lot of travel accessories, like blanket, DVD player, snacks, plane ticket info, and some small toys. Like I said, this bag held everything I needed. For anyone needing to hold a laptop you can upgrade to the Fastpack 250. It will give you the extra slot for a 15" laptop, everything else is the same.
Lastly it was comfortable. I wore it for over 8 hours on multiple days and could still have gone longer. No complaints in that arena.
I did also like the little pocket on the front left shoulder strap. It was a great place for little accessories like an extra battery or memory card.
All in all, the Fastpack 200 far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for a great travel accessory that can carry more things than just your camera gear.
