I struggled to find a camera bag that suited my purposes - something that didn't look like a camera bag, that gave me quick access to my camera equipment and allowed me to use the bag for other purposes.
While this option is not cheap, given that I already had a Timbuk2 messenger bag for my daily commute, this insert made perfect sense and was cheaper than the alternatives I was considering.
I love the fact that I can simply lift the insert out of the bag and store it in a cupboard until I need it.
When in the bag it's a nicely snug fit, allowing me to carry one camera body with a lens attached (15-85mm), along with two other other lenses including a 70-200mm, plus extension tubes, 1.4x extender and raynox macro lens.
While I just about manage to shove a spare battery, cleaning equipment and a remote control in there as well, it would have been better to have a dedicated pocket for this. Of course I can utilise the pockets of the bag itself, but when I take out the insert I have to find a separate home for this other equipment.
Overall I am very pleased with it and it's ended my long search for a decent camera bag.
