Externally the PhotoSEL DSLR backpack is made of a very rugged material, that seems slightly waterproof and able to stand up to the test of time. The zips and general feel of the bag was strong, I didn’t feel as if the product would simply snap in half, or a zip would break half way through a shoot. It’s looks basic, but at the same time the PhotoSEL DSLR backpack is cheap! So for what you are paying, you’re already getting awesome build quality. Oh and let’s not forget this backpack does come with a raincover to keep that gear safe just incase it rains a little more than usual.
