So whether you’re going on a photo walk, taking the kids to the park, or heading to the mountains for a weekend, this is all the bag you will need. The main compartment can holds most SLR bodies with or without attached lenses. The dedicated laptop compartment measures 16" x 10" x 2" which fits most 17" laptops. There is a new tablet / netbook pocket to safely carry your smaller electronics. Constructed from heavy duty 1680 Denier ballistic nylon, the Portare PBP2 line of bags come with concealed removable rain covers. Straps on the side hold Tripods or other bulky gear. The adjustable shoulder straps feature an innovative attachment system, allowing you to attach more gear with a use of carabiners. Breathable, padded air mesh lines the back in a unique design, allowing for an ergonomic, comfortable and dry (non-sweaty) fit. There are a number of internal and external accessory pockets which provide additional storage for extra batteries, cords, memory cards or other small accessories. Snap buckles and its unique two zipper design are theft deterrants. Available in black, green and orange.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I got the Portare' PBP2-G bag and I absolutely love it. Most people review bags immediately after opening the box. I am writing this after having used the bag for more than a month including an international trip. The bag is very well thought out, and it holds all my gear along with my laptop AND my new ipad. I have a Canon Rebel, three lenses and a flash. It fits comfortably in the overhead compartment of the aircraft and it was a relief to be able to carry both my laptop and ipad without worrying about scratching either. I was even able to fold a reflector in the laptop pocket, and that greatly enhanced my images. The shoulder straps and back padding live up to their billing. The Portare' bag feels solidly manufactured and the material is very heavy duty and feels tough. I also like the peace of mind of the rain cover. Overall, I am very impressed with this bag and would definitely buy it again if needed.
I was very excited to find this backpack which would hold my camera, extra lense, 15 inch laptop, and iPad2. The padding is great as is the fit. I have back issues but had no problem carrying the pack loaded. That said, the stiching is not strong enough to hold the weight of the items in the pack. After a total of about 24 hours of use, the handle has started to fray on both sides meaning it will soon rip. The stitching on the laptop compartment has also begun to fray and split. Unfortunately, I was overseas when my return ran out so I now I am stuck with a backpack which is a great design but falling apart. BTW, my equipment is not heavy and should have been no problem as we have carried the same about in a Tandem as well as a Lowpro.
6/27/11 update - Contacted the manufacturer about issues with backpack. Great customer service!! Set me a new pack out without issue and apologized that I had any issues at all. So, review of first pack still stands but I am excited...
