Nice bag, but NOT a camera bag.
It's a nice, practical laptop bag/backpack, but it is NOT A CAMERA BAG. Sure, you could put a camera in it, but it doesn't have the padding for it, as is. Unless I am missing something, it also can't hold a tripod or water bottle as the description claims ("Two side pouches can be used to support a tripod or water bottle."). Since I purchased it intending to use it as an inconspicuous camera bag, with simple modifications (adding of a few external loops to hold a monopod, a few pads from another camera bag inside to provide some divisions) I am still reasonably happy with it. It is quite thin though, so even with modification, it is unsuitable for large lenses or camera bodies. This is really a laptop bag (you can easily remove the laptop division though).
Stiff zippers (that open half-way) and thick material make the bag feel safe for travel. It's not "slash-proof", but it's more secure than the average bag. The straps need padding added to be comfortable for backpacking. The water-proof cover is also a nice addition.

Nice backpack for students!
My friend has another National Geographic backpack which made me interested to this brand. I searched "National Geographic bags" on Amazon and this one really drew my eyes! It is designed excellently and has patent on its strip for shifting between backpack and single shoulder bag. I am not a photography fan so that I do not want to take camera everyday. I was curious about the inner space because I just want put my laptop and books in it ---- I do not need special space for keeping a camera. It really satisfies my requirements! It acts like a common backpack ,but with very very good inner spaces and nice quality. There is a flexible space for laptop which is pretty useful. Five stars recommend! (There is another version of this bag, bigger and with camera container inside:)

Tastefully designed compact rucksack
Bought this rucksack for toting my laptop around. Description says it will fit a 15" laptop, but it also fits my 17" macbook pro (mid 2010 model) perfectly! Great if you are looking for something just big enough for your 17" MBP, but not too bulky to be a hassle. Plenty of space for one or two books, charger and other accessories. Sufficient padding all around with lots of compartments. Highly recommended.
