    Strength:

    Build Quality, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Spacious

    Weakness:

    Plastic clips on tripod straps look fragile

    Build quality is excellent. Holds 2 bodies, 4 lenses, 3 flashes, and 2 smaller, non DSLR cameras with ease. It also has tons of smaller compartments for stashing all of your accessories. Cables, chargers, batteries, memory, pocket wizards, etc.

    The laptop compartment holds my 15.4" laptop with ease. For trips out in the back country, it also doubles as a great compartment to hold a hydration bladder.

    The tripod attachment system holds my Induro A213 tripod rock solid. This is neither a small nor lightweight tripod. The only potential weak point I see with this bag is I fear the plastic clips on the tripod hold-down straps may break on me one day. It would be nice if they were made out of metal and/or offset so they are next to the bag as opposed to pressing against the tripod. It looks like a good whack could crack them.

    This is not a small backpack by any means and weighs a ton fully loaded down with gear. People of smaller stature or strength may struggle with this bag but for me, this is the best way to carry a goodly amount of gear out to rugged locations. The shoulder straps are well made and thickly padded and do a good job of balancing the weight of the bag. Combined with the sternum and stomach straps, this bag is not shifting around at all on a long hike.

    This is an excellent bag that can haul around a ton of gear in relative comfort.

    Strength:

    very well made, and well padded

    Weakness:

    doesn't fit in the overhead bins on the plane when the laptop is in the pack.

    I took the Cyber 8 to France for a phot workshop. I carried 2 bodies, several lenses and my laptop with no problems whatsoever. It provides outstanding protection for your gear
