What an excellent piece of equipment the Naneu U120 bag is! I have several Naneu bags and the U120 has become my favorite. With a minor change to the configuration of the dividers, I am able to get two Nikons, 5 lenses and a couple of flashes loaded into it. Plus, there is plenty of room for the other accessories, like flash cards, reflector/diffuser discs, a cable release, an extra jacket, a laptop, and more. Everything is easily accessible and that can be important when you need a camera and/or a lens NOW !
Here is another very important part: the U120 is so comfortable. I am a big guy and this back-pack style bag feels great. The straps don't cut into my shoulders even when it is fully loaded. The straps are padded very generously in the correct place so you hardly know you have it on. I also like the fact that the waist strap can be removed. There are times I use the strap and other times I don't & it's easy to remove and replace.
The construction is phenomenal. The material is super-strong and water resistant and yet good looking. They also place a sturdy grip on top which really comes in handy when you need to load the bag into the back seat or the trunk (even MORE handy when you get the bag out). I like the rubber "feet" on the bottom that lets you set the thing upright and it stays put. There is a good amount of padding throughout that protects what you have stowed inside.
The U120 is my fourth Naneu. I have loved every one I have had‚ the TS25, U120, U220, and an older Naneu bag that I can't even remember what series it is. I still have them all (and use them) -hell, I can't wear the damn things out!
