Looks like an update to the Lowepro CompuPrius design, now with an even more modular interior.
I don't like the tripod mount being on the backside of the backpack for some reasons:
- The heavier the part, the closer it should be to you.
Sure enough, your fancy carbon basalt titanium mithril Tripod is not actually heavy, but admittedly, with a proper head on top of it, one cannot deny that there still is some weight to the whole thing.
All that equipment dangling far away from you is not very comfortable.

Imagine that a tripod is mounted to the backpack, guess where its spikes will rest while you get your camera out.
- placing the backpack on the floor is not very convenient
The tripod strap has a few flaws.
It comes with a hydration system. Why would one want to tie the functionality of attaching a tripod to your backback to having a hydration system?
It seems to be an overpriced accessory, but then they explicitly state that a MBP fits into the pack, so I can image where they got that idea from.
I love the idea of a modular system. Since I am looking for bags, I was wondering why companies aren't doing that.
