    Amazon doesn't have any reviews for that backpack, but it's a bit cheaper there.

    I suspect that it's the same pack that DJI sell with their brand on it.
    Can't find any differences between it and the DJI pack.
    I have one and it's great.

    It's not the same pack for sure. If you compare the photos, you can see many differences. It's probably very comparable though.

    Thanks for that info. The one on Amazon is based in China and will take much longer to receive the one on eBay is coming from Cali. I'm trying to decide if I should spend $149 for the original or $79 for this version hmmmmm....

    Are these hardshell, and specifically this one you all linked to, are they generally heavier or lighter than the soft backpack versions...if you know? Gotta get a case for my trip to virgin islands in 2 weeks, running out of time. Sorry for bragging...ill bring back some Cubans for everyone

    just got my pack from ebay seller. less than 9 days to get it to me. the packs fantastic however you have to mod it a bit to get everything in. i had to cust pieses of foam to fit my tablet and sunshade. Apart from that everything fits in nice and snug. ill try to post some photos tonight

    The only trick with the hard shells is that your somewhat limited on space for extras such as range booster, memory card case, GPS tracker accessories, etc

    If your looking for something you can hike with and has lots of room, check out the Manfrotto bag. It's the bag that DJI rebrands. I have one and love it.

    Not sure if you can see but the left and right vertical slots to fit the props and tab s need a slight modification. Havent figured out were the sunshade goes yest. Needs another mod. Apart from that its fantastic

    Straps for shoulders seem secure (strong) for hiking etc ?

    For now straps seem very strong no issue however if you were going to go on a overnight hike i would be getting something like this and modifying it to go on the outside of my hiking pack as you would have to carry food water etc

    That's an interesting belt backpack ! I'm mainly concerned with just light hiking 1/2 day trips and nothing overnight (at least NO planned ones ). Price is pretty good if I get a season or maybe two out of this bag I'd be happy at this price range. Thanks !
