The reason I wanted to own this bag in addition to the B-Hobo was that I thought the Millie would be a smaller bag, perfect for bringing along to events with my 'big' camera, when I didn't need an extra lens. I liked the idea of a smaller bag. The B-hobo served that purpose pretty well, but it was still a bit big. Turns out the Millie worked great for this purpose! I was especially relieved to find that my camera (the Canon 5D) fit into the bag just fine, despite hearing that it may not.
But that's enough about the B-Hobo for now. I'll be back next week with a comparison between the two bags. For today, I want to focus on Millie:
I opened the box to find the bag wrapped up & protected in this bag:
The Millie has a large zipper pocket on the back:
The strap is adjustable and has an easy to remove, snap-on shoulder pad:
The front flap of the bag closes with a snap that attaches to the bottom of the bag:
Under the flap, there's a large front zipper pocket. The top, main section of the bag also zips closed:
This bag comes with 2 removable, padded dividers. They have velcro on three sides.
Because I like to carry my camera with a lens attached, ready to shoot, I only use one divider. This gives me room to store my Canon 5D with a Tamron 28-75mm lens attached on one side, and my Canon 480 ex flash in its case in the other. I also have a bulky camera strap cover that fits just fine, above the camera.
Here are a couple of pictures of me, wearing the bag. I found shots like this helpful when I was shopping online for a camera bag because it gave me an idea of how big the bag actually was. The left 2 photos are just over the shoulder, and in the right shot, I've lengthened the strap in order to wear it across my body.
...and that's the Millie! If you've got any questions for me about the bag or my experience with it, let me know in the comments, and I'd be happy to reply.
