Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adventure minded pack for photographers I shoot for Forest Crest Photography and I shoot a lot of adventure type shoots far from civilization. Prior to this pack I have been stuffing two cameras, lenses and associated gear into a Gregory 30l. This pack being 10L larger has helped my storage situation. Combined with the TAN large cube its also added to my peace of mind knowing everything is protected. Lid could use a different mounting setup but other than that this pack is great. Its not a camera bag. Its a full blown hiking pack that just happens to carry cameras. I liked it so much I actually did a full review of this thing.

Does the main compartment have dividers or is it an open compartment that I have to add padding to cushion my gear?

Asked by: lpbreite
The main compartment is just a wide open area. You will need to use your own padded camera inserts or buy the accompanying kit cubes from the same Chris Burkard collection from Mountainsmith.

Is there a place where one can attach a tripod to the outside of the backpack?

Asked by: jkolker
​There are many hooks, loops and straps on this pack to hold a tripod.
