Customer Reviews of Aktiv PAK Pro All-Weather Backpack Case + Accessory Kit for Digital SLR Cameras & Laptop Computers
Nice bag good price8/30/2011
The bag works well.
Great for on location shooting
Decent bag but needs major improvement8/30/2011
I am currently using this bag. The bag is reasonably priced and build quality is passable. But there are some major caveats. cons: The quality of internal padding is just ok. When you remove the velcro dividers you will feel that they can be adjusted without much force. I have used canon backpack and it has far better padding than cameta one. The strap for attaching tripod is not sewn onto the bag but attached by flimsy plastic which broke on second day of use. The padding for the back is not good. I wasn't even carrying a laptop in the backpack just had a camera body 2-3 lenses & a flash. But my back started hurting after some time. pros: The price is good. You cant find a laptop/dslr backpack at similar price. Its spacious. I have a 16.4 sony vaio and it fits comfortably. It could easily fit a 17 laptop. Its sturdy and can withstand abuse. Weather covering is a big plus. It looks like ordinary backpack which doesn't scream expensive camera inside. Its a good bag but needs some major improvements especially better back padding.
i use it for storage packing and etc!
Very good deal8/30/2011
I like the number of ways you can rearrange the compartments but the velcro walls can be a little floppy if you don't place them just right. Overall it holds a ton of stuff and has been great for travel.
Sturdy and roomy8/30/2011
I am able to pack an incredible amount of items into this bag and still have room for more. Aside from the main compartments for camera equipment and laptop there are a number of ancillary pockets for extra batteries filters etc. that are easily accessible. I especially like the ability to store and carry a medium tripod with the pack. One improvement I would like to see is the ability to expand the depth of the laptop area to accommodate a collapsible laptop stand. I am able to pack both but it is a very tight fit. I priced bags at a number of local stores. This bag is priced below average
Useful but not well manufactured.8/30/2011
Goody buy but fabric quality and zipper is not top notch. Lots of pockets and padding to give useful interior.
Excellent bag for hauling gear8/30/2011
This is great for transporting gear. I've traveled back and forth between France Bermuda and California in the last few months and it's a great carry-on sized bag for equipment. It can get a little heavy when there is a computer and external harddrive in there but being able to get my entire studio into one bag so that nothing has to be checked is excellent.
I like the backpack. However the zipper is hard to use because the of the weather flat covering them. I cut the flap covering the zippers. Now they are much more user friendly.
Well worth the Price8/30/2011
Holds all my Digital SLR Equipment very well. Will even support my large tripod with attached straps.
I Like the fact the compartments are adjustable so I can configure it to fit my equipment. I also like that I can secure the backpack around my waist to keep it secure as i trek through all kinds of enviroments!
I'm not really hapy with this bag.. The bag is really big and if you where to go out of town to the air port you can not use this bag.. Its really not lightweight at all.. Im not happy with this bag at all! Trust me when I tell you this thing is huge.. And sometime big is not better! I would go with a canan bag my sister got one and I wish I got that one
I love this bag. At first I thought it was a liitle too big for the items I have but it turned out that I can put all my camera supplies in one bag. I have a DSLR camera a camcorder a regular 35mm film camera several lenses and a tripod. It holds them all.
I love my bag8/30/2011
Right after receiving my backpack I made a trip to NY to one of the biggest supplier of photography equipment and I seen the prices of backpacks like the one I purchased from Cameta. I will say it was a steal. Love my purchase YQ
Worth a purchase.8/30/2011
It is spacious and worth the price.
Protective & Weather Proof Camera Case8/30/2011
My husband was in a hail storm on a 14-teener in Colorado and his camera was protected from the hail but suffered from moisture from the extreme conditions. This case protects the new camera from weather extremes. If you take your camera everywhere you will encounter rain sleet and/or snow and this bag protects your camera by keeping it safe not only through padding but waterproofing.
