I have CBBA: camera bag buying addiction. But I must not succumb to this one.! No need for yet another bag...
Oh come on now, I'll reimburse you for the shipping cost.

FACT: 90% of the people in this thread who bought one have no need for it.

Come, join us.
I'm part of the 10% seeing as I don't have a decent size camera bag, but even if I wasn't I'd probably still buy it at such a good price.

Sounds great. I'll bring the sweet corn. All I need is the address.

Seriously though, the bag arrived. Good quality and features as advertised. I really didn't need another, but it's actually just between the sizes of two other bags I have, so I am sure it will come in handy at some point.

I did not have a bag yet, so I bought this - it arrived yesterday. It has enough room to safely fit all the camera gear I currently own, so it was perfect for me. It doesn't feel like an expensive bag, but it doesn't feel cheap either, so again, perfect for what I have to work with.

I received mine yesterday. For the price it's good quality bag. The only problem that I really don't need it.

Thanks for sharing the deal. I dont need it. But for $17+Free shipping??...what the heck! Photography indeed seems a preserve of the rich!

Needless to say, I bit the bullet. And how? Just showed the pic of the bag to the wife. She goes "Looks cute" and I hit the "Place Order" button on adorama!

Here's my mini-review after using the bag over the past 2 days.

The Good Stuff:
  • $17 Shipped!
  • Doesn't feel cheaply made
  • Unbeatable price point
  • Bright-ass obnoxious color makes it easy to spot the thief
  • Nice feature set: removable, adjustable padded shoulder strap, modular padded dividers, removable padded compartment, slides over a rolling bag handle.
  • Seventeen freakin' dollars

  • Secondary storage is very limited. The front pockets don't hold much. Squeezing a flash unit in there feels forced, even a battery mounted on a charger. Plus, those pockets aren't padded. The side mesh pockets are ok, but again, not padded.
  • The main carry handle is too long. At first glance, it seems adjustable, but because of the way the flap operates, it needs to stay at its full length.
  • The main flap is kinda weird and doesn't open all the way. Somewhat related to the handle issue.

Overall, a good bag at a fantastic price.

Wonderful bag for $17 shipped! Wow!

Also looks like a cheapo cooler bag, so perhaps someone won't think I have thousands of dollars of lenses in there.
