Today, my Case Logic Reflexion DSLR backpack arrived. Here are my first few thoughts on this new backpack:
1. The insert from my messenger bag fits inside it. I can just swap the padded insert from bag to backpack and back to the bag, depending on my requirements for the day. Fabulous!
2. The backpack zips open in the middle, revealing the insert and offering a little flat surface to place down things like filters, etc. It even has a grab handle which allows me to move the bag opened up like that. Sometimes you are at a location but you need to move a few meters. It's a pain to always have to zip the backpack close again just to move it 20 meters. Even though, too many times I needed moved my other backpack (which has a back-panel opening), and I forgot to completely zip it shut before moving it. NOT GOOD.
3. The bottom is rubberized. Slip proof. And with slip proof, I mean it won't slip or slide. To move it across a table, you have to lift it. It won't slide. At all. This means, the bottom is also waterproof.
4. The water bottle pocket actually fits a water bottle. Amazing.
