      I bought this bag for my vacation to New Zealand. It fit under the seats on all the airplanes I went on large and small. I did not have the tripod attached; I put the tripod in my checked bag instead. It had plenty of space and configurations for everything I wanted to carry. I had 2 smaller lenses and a 70-300MM lens, camera body, JBL Charge 3, binoculars, headlamp and a bunch of other little knick-knacks. It's a tough and sturdy bag with plenty of cushioning. The rain shell cover was nice to have and was used frequently in New Zealand. I also like the rain shell for security reasons too--as a theft deterrent or at least made it difficult for someone to get to the zippers to unzip the pocket and quickly pull out my camera. The downside is that the bag by itself (empty) is quite heavy. I took a larger checked suitcase as well so I can shift items back and forth like my bluetooth speaker and binoculars. Just make sure you wrap them in clothing to prevent damage during handling. Carry on luggage is sometimes weighed by certain airlines so I didn't want to risk having to leave something behind. I wasn't targeted and it seemed like they were only focused on the rolling carry-ons for weight limits though. I hiked 3 mountains with it. The first time was Mt Eden, wasn't too bad. 2nd time was the Pinnacles- I was fully packed and it became quite heavy after a few hours. It also rained so the rain shell was perfect! The chest and waist straps were extremely helpful in distributing the load. The second hike was 19KM at Tongariro Crossing that took 8 hours. I only took the essentials; cam body with attached lens, a couple sandwiches and about 1.5 liters of water. The bag did start to get heavy and it was pretty tough for me, but I'm also out of shape. I'm 6'0' 195lbs and the bag fit really well and comfortably. TL:DR = I recommend going on some test hikes to see how much weight you can withstand for a period of time instead of fully loading it and embarking on some crazy 12 mile hike up a volcano. I got it on sale so it was a really good value for the money. There's bags out there that cost twice as much and aren't as comfortable. Definitely money well spent. Good luck and cheers!

      Awesome backpack

      I was looking for something to carry my camera and its lenses so as to have it quickly available when needed during our trips. After having reviewed what's available on the market, decision was to go for a backpack (and not shoulder or messengers bags, nor any kind of belt...) Once this was decided, it was obvious a Lowepro was required as there is no other brand proposing such a high quality featured backpack. Model was dictated by the biggest lens I have (a 600mm Tamron), so the high end model should be mine... I was a bit afraid of the weight, but it is so confortable to carry, and it has so much room that I can put all my 4 lens, the camera, the charger, and also all the stuff for my gopro + all the chargers/cables I need for my electronis devices during our trips. Even at home, now all those stuff are well stored in the backpack and I don't have anymore to struggle finding a room for them ! Awesome ! I would definitively recommed it, even if it's a bit expensive, it worth it !

      This is one solid backpack. I really like that it is built so that it will stay standing up on it's own. Top notch materials and the zippers (which always seem to be what fails first) are excellent. Very comfortable to wear. Caution though, this is not a lightweight backpack, due to how solidly it is built. It easily handles my Nikon D600, 28-70 F2.8, 80-200 f2.8, Sigma 150-500, Nikon 105mm f4, and my 14mm wide angle. It also can handle my ipod, flash, and other various accessories, with no problem.

      This is only the second Lowepro bag I've ever bought. I was encouraged by how well the first one served my needs and felt comfortable buying a second one. My kudos meter went off the chart with this one. Not only does it hold all the equipment I need plus a backup it gives me quick access when I need to retrieve my camera for that unexpected shot that comes along from time to time.

      Took this bag all over Europe, love this bag. I looked for months for a bag that would hold a camera and a laptop. I have a 15.2" laptop, it fits just can't zip it up. It has been holding up great.

      This camera gear back pack is large enough to carry two cameras with lenses plus additional lenses and gear. It is not too big but just right for the professional or serious photographer.
