        Overall

        My favourite camera bag thus far. It's big, comfy, and safe. The only downside is the price, so it's up to whomever is buying whether you want to run the risk of buying something cheaper and having a strap break, zipper bust etc and lose potentially thousands in camera gear.

        I recommend this bag for anyone shooting snow sports because the zips are well sealed, the compartments are well-designed, and its durable.

        Performance

        I've had a Dakine Sequence for years, and I've been really satisfied with it. It's been durable and reliable, but it finally kicked the bucket and I needed a bigger bag this time around. The EVOC 25L was perfect.

        Carrying around a RED Epic, Canon 6D, full lens kits, batteries, etc etc requires a lot of trust in a bag. For the Legs of Steel movie this year we dropped in on 3 of these bags and they're not even a sponsor of the movie because we had seen them and they looked perfect. I haven't been disappointed with mine, to say the least.


        Design

        The bag comes with plenty of separators for your camera block section (accessed from the rear, like the Sequence), so you can customize the layout to fit your kit. The front of the bag fits all your Avy gear for trips to the backcountry, even with a full kit. It's also got a handy access top pocket and great elastic side pockets for water bottles.

        When you open the bag, there are 4 zippers that get you into 2 different compartments on the flap, perfect for lens caps, coins, intervalometers, cleaning cloths and tripod plates.

        The bag is soft on the inside, meaning your gear won't be scratching up against a rough surface or even that slippery plastic that other bags have. No slip, all grip, keeping your gear in place when you're shredding between spots.

        Great straps on the outside provide for easy carrying of tripods, glidecams, shovels and skis. You're covered on the heavy gear as well because the waist strap velcros to fit exactly how you want it (one of my favourite features).

        Value

        The bags retail for 300 euros, so be ready to get what you pay for. As they say, if you've got an expensive door, don't put a cheap lock on it. This bag keeps your gear safe and that's what counts. Good value, but a tad on the expensive side if you're running a small/cheap kit.
