On the front of the bag is another zipped pocket, which is divided into three. Although handy, it's not a great place to keep any valuables as they easier to access than the internal pockets. On one end is another small pouch and on the other is the zipped area which holds your camera. It is designed to hold a DSLR with a standard lens and will fit other compact / mirrorless cameras. It can also be squashed flat if you don't want to put your camera in this section.
Nikon D3000 with a Tamron 12-24mm f/3.5-4.5 lens attached in the small pouch. In the main section I had a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8, Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 and Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lenses as well as a Hama Tripod. Also tucked in the bag was a laptop, iPad, some magazines, mobile phone and pens. Although heavy, it felt comfortable on my shoulder. It's not an ideal bag for long photography walks, but it is great for travelling when you may need to carry lots of kit. The large flap which clips into place means you can secure your expensive items away from potential thieves.
