The main compartment contains a number of foam dividers that you can adjust according to the size, shape and amount of gear you carry.

For larger items, such as camcorders or large lenses, you can secure them in the main compartment by using the available canvas straps.

The material used for the construction of the AmazonBasics Backpack is a combination of polyester and nylon which is durable and water resistant to keep your gear safe and dry in case you are caught up in a light shower.

The durable material ensures that your gear is protected since it is quite resistant to abrasion and is not easily torn. This is especially important if you are shooting in the outdoors such as when trekking or camping.

No matter how active you can get or how far you trek with all of your gear, you can expect that this camera bag will not weigh you down. It has all of the ergonomic features that make it comfortable to use. 

Its shoulder straps have ample padding for extra comfort so as not to chafe your shoulder as you carry the bag continuously no matter how much gear you have managed to fit inside.

Because it is distributed by Amazon itself, the AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR/DSLR Cameras comes with a full year AmazonBasics warranty.

You can trust that you will receive good customer service if you have any concerns with the product that you buy.

You can have full trust and confidence not just in the product but also in the customer service since it is backed by Amazon itself.

Frustration-free packaging is one of the many perks of being distributed and backed by one of the largest online shopping companies in the world. You can enjoy your item without having to deal with frustrating packaging.


Although the polyester/nylon material used to make the bag itself is durable and of good quality, there are issues with the actual construction, particularly the seams and stitching on the bag.

Since the seams are usually the most sensitive points of a bag, especially if you are carrying large, numerous or heavy items, you risk them ripping or falling apart, no matter how tough the material is. There have been a number of complaints about the stitching failing. You might have to reinforce the stitching in order to fully enjoy and maximize the features of this bag.
