Comments about Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack:
First off this is one of my favorite bags, the waterproofing and look of the bag as well as the size fit my needs pretty well. I had high expectation as the bag is quite expensive. However, it has a major downfall: durability. The seams of the bag are ripping, the logo has fallen off, areas of the bag have been discolored because of abrasion. For the price point I would expect a bag that would at least last a year but unfortunately, this is not the case. If you are the type of person who expects great quality and durability especially at a high price point, I would not recommend Thule.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not a good fit for 5ft 4 woman
from Sacramento, CA
This pack was humongous for me (5ft 4 woman). It's a great sturdy pack, but not good for anyone other than someone tall.
Close to being 'The One'
By Nick the Pilot

This pack almost fits the bill of the 'perfect' camera backpack. Almost. Though no such thing exists this ticks off many marks for me.The side camera access is nice and the roll top compartment has a lot of room for storage of a jacket or fleece. At 6' 1" and 215 pounds it was nice to finally find a camera bag that fits my torso and doesn't look tiny on me. The Covert has a ton of pockets - almost too many as I forget sometimes where I put my batteries or filters. I feel like I discover a new pocket every time I pull this pack out for better or worse.As far as negatives go, the exclusion of a hip belt on a somewhat beefy pack is a head scratcher. You can really weight this thing down and all the load on your shoulders will get painful/annoying. My own kit is light these days (Fuji) so the bulk of the weight is often water, tripod and the backpack itself.The camera storage pockets are a little stiff but at least your gear is secure.To make this bag closer to perfect would be to add a hip belt with pockets and perhaps reduce the beefiness of the bag to lighten it up. It is built like a tank but doesn't need to be. Lighter materials and a little less bulk around the pocket closures and lose the flaps in some locations in place of zippers.For comparison I also have a f-stop gear Kenti which is similar but smaller in capacity/size. If I could somehow merge the features of these two packs into one I think we'd have a true winner.Overall highly recommended but some refinements could go a long way.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
