Cameralogical Baggage - Incase DSLR Pro Pack Review

I've owned one of Incase's older camera bags, the DSLR sling, for about a year now, and I've found it incredibly useful. It's well made, it makes your gear easily accessible, and looks pretty good while doing it. But it wasn't something I could carry my schoolwork in (unless you count an 8.5x11 folded in half). So when they released the DSLR Pro Pack, pictured here, I was thrilled to take a look.

Cameralogical Baggage - Incase DSLR Sling Pack (Long term)

Camera bags are one of those things that are hard to get just right. If they're compact and sleek, they won't hold all of your stuff, and when they do, often times they're too big to carry around with you everywhere. Backpacks are comfortable, but they tend to be big and you have to take them off to access your gear. Shoulder bags are convenient, but are a pain in the neck. And the list goes on and on. But I've found what seems like a good compromise, in the form of the Incase DSLR Sling Pack.

**Some of the material here is from a review I did on a forum some time ago - I do try to cover the long term implications of owning this bag, so please, read on! Also, we are neither sponsored nor paid to do these reviews or promote products by third parties.

Cameralogical Baggage - Crumpler Haven (M)

As any photographer knows, how you tote around your camera gear is no small matter. Having a do-anything go-anywhere bag is the ideal solution, and a recent offering from Crumpler may be the key. The Crumpler Haven is a padded insert that drops into any appropriately sized bag, and comes in three sizes. The one I got as a Christmas present for [redacted] is the medium size, which costs $50 direct from Crumpler with free shipping. Let's take a look, shall we?
