Looks nice -- I purchased the Amazon Essential DSLR bag and love it. Used it for my Christmas/New Years trip. Have the T3i with three lenses, hoods, filters, macro filters, and extension tubes. Plenty of space and still have two spots for other lenses.
So, for anyone that missed out, I do recommend the Amazon bag.
Got it for $29 in a recent price reduction.

space seems limited. a telephoto, flash, medium zoom lens and you're at capacity. not crazy about the lack of organization and putting the gear near the bottom to absorb impacts and get into puddles when you need to put it down.
i purchased a used lowepro flipside in like new condition for about the same price at adorama (used retail price, not a "slick" deal) and couldn't be happier. everything worked and i got a bonus rubber eye cup the previous owner forgot in the bag :]
or go for the 200 if you want a smaller one. much better organization and design and quality, in my opinion. all for about the same price, albeit used.
EDIT: if you take my advice, call in for the used department, they almost always drop bucks off of the price on the website and can check in the moment what they have available. sometimes it varies from the online site for some reason.

|flassh81||I just got a Sony Nex-5n for Christmas. I plan on purchasing more lenses as time goes on. I can see from the photo the a full DSLR fits fin, but could i adjust the fit at all for the compact system I have?|

Very nice, though I don't think my hammer will fit

I went to look at this at my local Sears last night and based on my wants these are my thoughts:
1) As a dedicated camera pack it is small. If I need to travel that light - for a short hike? - I can fake it with a standard backpack or something else I have.
Which leads me to...
2) The MSRP / Reg price struck me as inflated. Call me crazy (or call me maybe?) but a couple velcro enabled sectionals isn't worthy of such a premium.
3) I was disappoint at the amount of padding. That is, there wasn't much. While I wouldn't expect to toss the bag, I'd be fearful for my gear even dropping it from waist or even knee level. Hikes = stumbles. This might be better than nothing but not by much.
4) While it does have standard backpack straps I wouldn't expect to be comfortable wearing this for any extended period of time.
5) Given that this *is* a camera bag, my understanding is it makes it more of theft magnet. So again, I think I'd be safer with a standard bag and some DIY.
If your needs are for a body+lens, an extra not-too-big lens, a small flash and some odds & ends then this size makes sense. But even so I'm not convinced that takes $40 to cover ya.
