We partnered with renowned photographer Ari Marcopoulos to create a camera bag that meets his exacting standards. As a veteran photographer whose work takes him across the globe to a variety of locales and climates, a durable yet comfortable camera bag is a must. The result of this particular design challenge is a low-profile bag with optimal weather resistance, long-wearing comfort, excellent protection and functional features that allow Ari to access his equipment as quickly as possible, never missing a shot.

A Choice Bag

To answer a common first question, yes my 13" MacBook Pro. One catch, you will not be able to zip close the iPad compartment. I still put both my laptop and my iPad in there regardless of this minor detail.
What this really made me think was do I really need to pack my laptop everywhere? No. I can use that when I get back to the studio or office. I still got my iPad to deal with my photos if I need to view and manage images in the field.
The best feature by far is the removable strap. I can switch the direction this thing fastens, this cannot be done on the new camera slings by by Incase. This bag wears well both across the body and over one shoulder.
This is indeed the best camera bag I have ever owned. The design of the bag is very subtle, not flash or bulky like others. But, I can't give this bag a 5 star score on the basis that I fear that this bag could be discontinued! Incase has a gem here, and it could be modified and expanded too, Ari Marcopoulos Lite, maybe...Ari Marcoupoulos+ perhaps?
Amazing photo bag.

I've never been a fan of the stylings of bags from big camera bag companies such as Lowe Pro, Tenba, etc. I don't enjoy making it obvious that I'm carrying camera equipment. I have a bag from Burton that has worked pretty well for me for a while, but I really wanted something that would give me quick access to my cameras. This bag does the trick and it does it wonderfully.
I just took it for a two week trip to Europe. I used it as a day pack, for wandering around the streets. I used a larger pack to get everything to EU, then transfered whatever camera I needed for the day. Even though it fit almost everything that I brought, I found it to be too much weight for a full day on one shoulder. At max weight, I carried:
Sekonic L-358 Light Meter
and a hand full of film.
Access to everything I needed was fantastic. I was able to switch to anything on the fly with ease.
I was even able to put the rain guard to use which worked well.
Like other reviewers, I would have liked to have a few more options for the velcro separators. I think that was my only gripe about the bag.
I was able to use the bag also on the job, carrying the D3 with a 17-35mm, 50mm, and 70-200mm. I am very pleased at the ability to sling the bag around to quickly change lenses. This bag will definitely be my primary bag unless I have to carry a significant amount of gear. It's best for the smaller to medium loads.
I highly recommend this bag to anyone that doesn't want a bag that "looks like a camera bag," or for anyone that is looking for a solid sling pack.
Pretty great bag

When I finally got it, I was impressed on what it could hold. It fits really comfortably on the shoulder. I own the other black sling bag, and it was a bit uncomfortable for me. I highly recommend this.
I was able to fit:
Canon 5D Mark II (body + battery grip)
15mm f/2.8 (fisheye)
28-135mm f/5.6 IS
480 speedlight flash
LED panel w/ bracket
Misc. pens/markers/mini tripod/soft box/card reader/memory cards.
Close to a perfect day bag.

This bag looks top notch. Get tons of compliments anytime I'm wearing out. It holds just the right amount of gear for a day out when I don't need to have a full kit. I have two kits that I work with that this bag is perfect for:
5D Mk2 w/ 24-105 lens attached
35mm f/2 lens
Quantum Turbo SC battery for flash
8 pack of AA batteries
5D battery + charger
Moleskin + pens
Mamiya RZ67 w/ AE Prism
110mm f/2.8 lens (attached)
65mm f/4 lens
extra 220 film back
10 rolls film
1 extra pack of Fuji instant film
3 rolls of 35mm
Moleskin + pen
The bag works great when I'm traveling with either kit. Fits perfectly under a plane seat or in the overhead bin.
The only improvements I would make is first, to lessen the slack with the strap when I have the bag fitted tight to my body. The extra bit of the strap swings around even with the plastic clip and the buckle has more than once hit my camera when it's hanging around my neck. The buckle once even got caught on a turnstile on the subway which is pretty annoying. Second, there could be more even padding on the strap, because if I leave the bag loose, the strap across my shoulder is part of the unpadded area and it digs into my skin. Third, I also could live with just a bit less padding in the bag itself so that the bag is lighter and more collapsible for those times I'm in really crowded areas. Last, I would make the interior velcro pads more customizable because as is, the two pads only fit in very particular areas and my gear just doesn't always fit in those spaces.

Awesome bag. Perfect fit and perfect size. Well done incase!
Very Unique Camera Bag
POSTED ON 11.06.10 • BY agoglanian
When I first received the Ari camera bag I was surprised at how small it looked / felt, but once I opened it up I liked the layout for a small camera kit.
I was able to fit the following items in the bag w/o struggle.
Canon 5DmkII body (w/o grip) with a lens mounted.
EF 24mm f/1.4LII - can be mounted on camera
EF 50mm f/1.2L - can be mounted on camera
EF 135mm f/2L - can be mounted on camera
EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
1 Canon LC-E6 battery charger
3 Canon LP-E6 Batteries
Memory card wallet
Small Moleskine notebook
pens / markers
Chargers for iPhone / iPad and appropriate cables
I can fit more things in the bag relatively easy but it becomes quite heavy at that point and uncomfortable to carry.
I like the overall design and aesthetics of the bag, but I have to admit that I am not entirely in love with the strap design. It's functional, but when the bag is well loaded I find that it doesn't distribute the weight of the bag perfectly and it sits in a sort of funny position on my back.
Overall I think it's pretty well thought out and it looks gorgeous in its own right, I'm going to put it through its paces and hopefully it will stand the test of time.
