Is this good? $60 for a dslr back pack seems to be still pricey?

It's a good bag. Been using it for a few years. Got it for $70. Lowepro have a bigger version (22L) but I like this one more coz I could take it on a plane as carry on.

I use it with my entry level dSLR and two lenses (with one attached to camera). Still got room in the camera compartment for accessories (lens pen, extra battery and the charger, etc).

Anyone know if it can hold a 24-70 mm (attached to body) and a 70-200 mm?

ThIs pack is too small for those lenses with the body attached. At least the 16L is too small as its really meant for a small travel / vacation pack. I have me rebel T5i with a 15-85mm lens and it just fits when attached to the body. There is space to carry your 24-70mm lens as well or a speedlite and then it's going to be full for the camera compartment. There is a small pouch at top where you can fit other accessories like batteries, memory cards, a poncho or change of clothes as well. A padded pouch at front to carry an iPad or other small tablet.

Great bag, but the 16L is probably better suited for mirrorless cameras or smaller SLR with smaller zooms/primes.

Price match at Best Buy for even more savings?
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.

So I checked around at a few Best Buys and surprise surprise, the blue version is (almost) sold out everywhere. RFD effect for sure. Anyways, if anyone was wondering, it can fit a Canon 6D with a 24-70 mm f/2.8 mounted on it ... and that's about it. There's enough room for maybe a spare battery or something but other than that, this is a pretty small compartment for regular sized DSLR's. That's probably it's only drawback. There's a lot of great things about the bag: very comfortable, good quality, definitely doesn't look like a camera bag, stylish camping / hiking bag. Now I'm just debating to keep it or return it and ebay a padded insert and put it into a backpack.

They make good DSLR bags. I have the Lowepro sling 250. It's light, not too big but spacious inside. I would recommend the sling because you don't have to take it off to take out your camera, just turn it, it's in front of you and there's a side zipper for taking out the camera.

It depends on how big your camera and lens are. I could fit a T4i with Sigma 18-250mm attached. Although no room left from top to bottom, it's not a tight or snug fit; it just have enough room (or maybe extra room in a few mm if I removed the filter attached to the lens :) ) My other lens is a small prime lens. I could also swap the two (i.e. attach the prime, put the zoom lens on the side, and it still fits). There are enough padding between the upper and lower compartments. However, when I have the zoom lens attached, I try not to put too much stuff or stuff with a decent weight in the top compartment, just in case it presses too much onto the lens in the bottom. Better safe than sorry!

The other feature I like with Lowepro bags is the all weather cover. Sometimes I put it on even when it's a sunny day. It goes from the bottom to the top, straps through the back straps and covers all zippers (except the camera compartment of course, since that is facing the wearer's back). I'm hoping when I'm at an unfamiliar place, it would act as another tiny piece of thing thieves have to go through before getting to the bag contents, and hopefully that would turn them away. Yes, I guess they could always slice the bag with a utility knife, but so far so good... (touchwood)
