Great camera backpack for the active person!!! Posted by: from: Portland, OR on This is the 3rd Lowepro bag I now own and probably will be the most used. I've been using the Fastpack 250 (1st Generation), for the last couple years. The Fastpack is good pack but can get pretty heavy after a while. I've been waiting for a lightweight and weather-proof pack that I can take on hikes, outdoor events, bike-rides and over-seas travel. A current issue for me is the ability to stow the bag below the seat on planes for I use another bag for back-up clothes etc for top luggage bins. You'll be surprised at how much you're able to fit. Here's a list (and also a couple pics below) of what I've been able to put in: -Sony a57 with attached 55-200mm, 18-55mm, 50mm, 30mm macro -Sony NEX-5 with attached 18-55mm, 55-210mm -Apple iPad -Back-up SD cards x 4 -Pair of Lowepro camera straps -Card reader and LED flashlight A cool feature that I found is the ability to remove the camera compartment. Once removed, you're able to use the bag as a normal day-pack. In addition, there is a cinch-top cover for that compartment to keep out stuff, and also there is an attached rain/weather cover at the bottom for the pack. For those who own larger DSLR's, you might want to look into purchasing the 22 liter version. Also, if you're looking for a low-profile bag, something that doesn't scream "very expensive camera in here!", then you should look at the Photohatchback!

Great bag for a DX 2 lens kit and some extra items Posted by: from: Southwest FL on Other than just saying what a great bag it is I will tell you what I am able to fit in the camera compartment. Nikon D5100 with 16-85 zoom attached, hood reversed and Nikon 55-200 zoom with no hood, alongside. I am also able to fit the D5100 with 55-200 zoom attached, and the 16-85 alongside. Alternatively, by putting the D5100 with 16-85 in at 90 degrees, grip facing the opening, I can fit my 70-300 instead of 55-200 alongside, with one pad in between. It's tight, but it fits. Any of these combinations makes me feel the equipment is safe. As far as the upper compartment goes, it has some convenient pockets and enough space for basic items that you might carry around with you for a day trip such as snacks, camera accessories, sunglasses, light jacket, etc. My iPad Air with cover fits nicely in the front pocket. Please refer to the pic's I've uploaded for the camera fit.

Great bag + great price Posted by: from: Roseville, MI on I needed a backpack for a camping trip that could safely house my camera gear as well as some essential items. I didn't want to carry around a regular camera bag so I thought a backpack would be the best option. I am glad I went with this bag. My gear fits, a little snug but that's a good thing. I feel that it is very well protected. There is tons of storage in this backpack for all of your necessary items. I had maps, snacks, bottle of water, phone charger, first aid kit, chapstick, and some other misc items as well with still room to spare. The bag fits nicely and the weight seems to be distributed pretty evenly and comfortably. I would recommend this for those who are out camping, hiking or just day tripping who want to bring their camera gear along.

Worth the money. Posted by: from: Frederick, MD on Bought this specifically for a trip to Costa Rica. Needed a bag for the SLR, lenses and other cameras. I have had numerous camera bags and have traveled around the world including Kenya, Jordan, Turkey, Australia, etc. and have used the typical boxy fabric camera bags....This one is much more useful than that type since one can use it as a backpack (which came in handy on the horseback ride to the waterfalls in CR) and the compartments really protect the camera and personal items well. It was my carry-on bag and held my iPad happily as well. This is the BEST camera bag I've ever owned and I would recommend it without hesitation to fellow travelers. It's absolutely great!

Great Daypack Posted by: from: on This is a great backpack for bringing a camera on a day hike. If you don't want to bring a camera, you can take out the insert in the main compartment and have room for books, laptop, etc. This backpack has a great advantage compared to others cause you can configure it to your needs. Even with a camera packed, there is room in the top half of the backpack for accessories, towels, etc. I took this on a hike a couple weeks ago and was able to store my jacket in there. Outer pocket has room enough for my iPad. Two side pockets can store large water bottles. The camera compartment is a little smaller than what I wanted, so you may have to compromise with your lenses. I stored a camera body, kits lens, a prime lens, and a flexible tripod in there. You can move the inserts around in the camera compartment however you want. The only thing I wish it had were straps to tie down the 'across the body' strap. All in all, a very good, compact backpack.

Best Most Useful Bag Ever Posted by: from: on I looked at and even bought other bags for my simple setup and hated all of the other bags. The size, weight, usefulness and the quality is by far better than all others I tried. I have a Nikon D3200, 2 lenses, some filters, a charger and a host of smaller things that I carry with me, so the bag can get a bit heavy while hiking from me loading it up. But whats not so apparent when you first look at the bag are a couple of very handy features. There are upper and lower straps that are excellent at holding the bag still on your back (you don't think its a big deal till you use it) a rain and weather cover that tucks neatly into a pouch on the bottom that works awesome. The harness is heavily padded and is quick release, the internal cubby can be configured to your hearts content and is removable. There are several areas that hold items in the top and in the front as well. I swear I do not work for LOWPRO, I just love this bag.

Great pack for small/minimal gear Posted by: from: on Excellent quality pack. I have a canon 6d, and was only able to fit one lens in the pack with my camera. I have two lenses that I use frequently, so sadly this pack didn't fulfill my needs, however I am still giving it 5 stars because it is an excellent, quality bag-- but with minimal gear. I'm upgrading to the same brand, similar pack that is just larger to fit all of my gear.

Great bag for an outdoor enthusiast ! Posted by: from: on This bag has been wonderful for hiking in light to moderate rain with it's rain cover . The straps are great too since it's set up for a hip and chest strap. My only issue with the bag is the chest straps sometimes pop off from the holder. Other than that it's a great small bag!! I summited Mount Fuji with it and all I needed for gear including my camera fit .
