We tested the qual­ity of con­struc­tion for each back­pack, check­ing ro­bust­ness as well as the ease of use and se­cu­rity of all zips and other fas­ten­ers. We also checked that the range of ad­just­ments en­abled a com­fort­able fit for pho­tog­ra­phers with small, medium and large builds, in­clud­ing the use of all ad­di­tional chest and waist straps, where fea­tured. We paid par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the main cam­era com­part­ments to en­sure they were well padded and of­fered good pro­tec­tion from bumps and knocks. Speed and ease of ac­cess to kit was gauged, and we tested all ad­di­tional fea­tures such as tri­pod fas­ten­ers, ex­tra pock­ets and mem­ory card or­gan­is­ers. The to­tal num­ber of cam­eras, lenses and other photo ac­ces­sories that can be fit­ted in­side when us­ing all the supplied di­viders is shown in our com­par­i­son ta­ble on the fi­nal pages.
