    Holds more than expected, but not everything

    The case has adjustable compartment walls, as almost all of them do, but the depth of the bag does not allow my nikon dslr camera to sit with it's bottom mounted joby strap as it makes the camera about 1/2" taller. It fits if I carefully place it with the straps folded, but quick in and out is difficult. It holds my camera, battery charger, 2 lenses, canon hd hand camcorder, and lens cleaning tools. I wish I could fit my portable selphy printer, but it isn't large enough. I may exchange for a larger bag, but consideration needs to be made with carrying around all your equipment at all times. Do you want a bag that only carries your camera and lenses, bag that carries only your camera with the lens you are going to use, or a bag that is able to carry everything. If you only have a camera and a couple lenses, this is good, but if you want to put everything inside, go bigger. The straps are skinny and is not fashionable or comfortable. The bag holds to one side if you have your camera placed on one side as one side will be heavier.

    Used as an airplane travel bag for my electronics.

    I recently went to Europe. I needed a small bag to put under the seat in front of me that would hold all of my electronics. My IPad, phone, Nook, camera, Europe power adapter, usb chargers for both the car and hotel. Everything fit with room to spare. I also put my Baggie of liquids, prescription drugs and anything else I would have to show at the TSA line in the bag. My larger carry on I just threw on the belt without opening and this little bag was easy to find everything TSA wanted to see. I was able to breeze through the security line and had everything I needed right there while I was in flight. It was also great during layovers at interim airports. It isn't what it was designed for but the design was flexable enough to make my travels easy. The back pack straps carry the weight well. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Good Camera Backpack

    My wife wanted something larger then the standard Nikon case that came bundled with her camera so she got this one. It's large enough to carry her camera and gear and it has padded compartments she can change the layout of to handle different equipment. She also likes that it's a backpack and won't put too much weight on her shoulder like a bag with a single shoulder strap. I think the only thing lacking with this particular bag are straps or a pouch on the outside of the bag large enough to securely hold a tripod. There are two pouches on either side of the backpack but they are more for holding water bottles and are not large enough to securely hold a full size tripod.

    I got this for a Nikon D3100 I had. Camera and lens fit fine. There's some space for a couple of other small items, or maybe another zoom lens. Seems like it would protect the camera well, within reason, but not waterproof (and not priced to be). It's good for the amateur photograph seeker. Not really for anyone seriously into their gear because I think the size would become an issue quickly. I velcro a tripod to the side of it, and it's convenient for taking places where I want to get a better quality photo than my iPhone will give me. I would recommend to anyone with a simple dslr setup. Not so much so for the serious, gear carrying semi-pro/hobbyist.

    Nice Little Pack

    This camera backpack offers good protection for the camera. LowePro usually puts out a good product to protect your camera and this one is no exception. Small enough to keep you from dragging along the kitchen sink, but big enough to hold my camera, two spare lenses, battery back-ups, memory cards, along with a packable rain jacket, a few Clif Bars, and a soft water bottle in the side pocket. One thing to consider is you should try and look at it in-store before you buy. I have an Olympus OM-D Mirrorless camera which takes up a lot less room than a DSLR. You won't have as much extra space with that type of system unless your camera rides around your neck all day. Overall, I am very happy with the quality of this bag.

    I really like the value of this bag. It is as good as the one that came with the Nikon - D7200 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm and 70-300mm Lenses - Black purchase I made. I wanted a more convenient bag for traveling by foot and this bag does that without tying up your hands or slipping off your shoulder, plus it goes right back on my back once the camera is out so I don't need to set it down anywhere. Plus I can fit my tablet in the built in sleeve for when I travel by plane. Side pockets are great for my mini tri-pod. I have not used it that much but based on what I seen so far I think it was a great purchase for someone that shoots pictures for vacation and family events.

    Great compact bag for mirrorless camera system

    I purchased this camera bag to carry a mirrorless camera system. This bag holds two camera bodies, three prime lenses, one zoom lens, a flashgun, batteries and battery pack. There is a slot for an 8-10" tablet in the zippered flap. The only thing I can find fault with is the zippers on the flap do not unzip all the way down to the bottom of the bag. This prevents pushing a 10" tablet all the way to the bottom of the tablet flap when the zippered flap is open and also keeps the flap from opening all the way. when a 10" tablet is pushed all the way down in the zippered flap. I am pleased with this bag as a small, compact bag for a mirrorless system. I would recommend this bag for anyone with a mirrorless camera system.

    I needed a camera backpack to carry my Canon camera along with its attachments over seas. Originally I was gonna go with a Canon one, but my photographer friend told me carrying that label practically is bragging for my things to be stolen, he suggested low pro because most people aren't familiar with low pro. So I went with that and I do not regret it, I got a tiny one which was satisfactory in carrying what little attachments I had. Backpack compartments can be adjusted, and it comes with a few tiny pockets, all over. Even if you don't use it to hold your camera stuff, its still good for on the go traveling without having to carry something big.

    Nice size small backpack for larger camera

    I have several cameras including a Nikon that has a battery base with side grip. That makes the camera quite a bit larger than a regular DSLR camera and as a result it won't fit in most cases except for extra large ones. This case allows me to fit the camera in plus it has enough room to put another lens or two in....I often put my 80-200 ED zoom lens in plus the camera with a 35-70 zoom lens installed. The case is smaller than the other much larger Lowe backpack camera case I have so more convenient for most uses. I own several Lowes cases for cameras and also a backpack for camping backpacking and they have never let me down.

    Lowepro - Format 150 Camera Backpack

    A small compact backpack with ample room for a DSLR with a short lens albeit not much else. The inside compartment has a nice amount of adjustable padded dividers that attach to the inside walls with Velcro at the end of each divider. A nice sized zippered pocket on the front flap and a non zippered pocket on the inside flap. Elasticized mesh pockets on each side of the backpack for a water bottle and other accessories. Your typical backpack straps with shoulder padding. The padding overall within the unit is not very thick, but what you'd expect for a bargain bag. Plus this one came in a bundle so it's even more appealing.

    I needed a more compact backpack for my camera gear on short day trips. I fit my Canon DSLR with lens, 2 more lenses, flash, batteries and a few more small accessories. It's nice to leave some things at home. The interior allows you to configure how you need the dividers set. I wore it in the rain under my umbrella. It kept water out, but some moisture did get inside. Luckily my lenses were fine. I cleaned it out, and put the empty bag and other fabric items in the dryer. Worked great. It also has 2 outside pocketsfor water bottles and the straps for a tripod. Overall a great product and exactly what I needed for the size.

    Typical of a Lowepro product, it is well-made and well thought out. The bag itself is light, so it will be just your gear that is weighing you down. There are partitions held in place by velcro, so you can reconfigure the compartments as needed. It easily held a 70D with 10-22mm lens and lens hood, wireless mic receiver and transmitter with room to spare. One zippered pocket on the back, two pockets on the side, and a pocket inside. I like the straps on the outside that you can attach lens cases to. This is a good small backpack that is easy to wear. Just right if you only need to carry one camera body+lens, and 1-2 more lenses.

    Not enough compartments

    I need a backpack to house and protect my Sony A6000 camera, a couple of lenses, an iPad mini and some small personal items when I go trail hiking. This Lowepro seemed the right size. However, when the shipment arrived and I had it in my hands, I found it lacking. Although it had an inner pocket in which I could put my iPad mini, it did not have a zipper nor any padding between the camera and the iPad for protection. I found another Lowepro model that had an additional zippered pocket with adequate padding which suited my needs better. So I return this one.

    Lightweight nicely padded camera bag that adequately protects the camera, extra lens and small accessories. Has backpack straps to effortlessly and securely carry while hiking. Does not slosh around while doing more technical hikes like shoulder strap cases do. Would be nice if it was either waterproof or had a rain bag to cover it when caught hiking in a rain. Would also like if it had straps to hold a monopod Glad to have purchased it and would buy another one.

    I have four lenses for my camera so my main photography bag is very bulky and heavy. I needed something that I could take with me to theme parks or on short jaunts hiking where I needed maybe one extra lens. This bag is perfect for that! Holds my camera and two lenses with room to spare. I will also note it fits in the lockers found at most theme parks (I know for sure at the ones found at Disney and Universal =] )

    My go-to bag

    Posted
    marinsd

    I own about a half dozen bags that range from a Think Tank Airporter, to several sizes of slings to a small mirrorless-camera-only bag. But this bag is light, adjustable and is my go-to bag for any shoot where I need more than one lens. I fit my camera (sony mirrorless), zoom, speedlight, extra lens, filters, cleaning supplies, remote, extra batteries/cards. And still light enough to not kill my fragile back. It's gotten a ton of use over the past few years and has held up extremely well.

    I purchased this bag to carry all of my GoPro gear, I wanted something fairly small and I think this fits the bill, has removable partitions to set up the inside for your needs, very well padded too, has outside storage pockets also, my only draw back is that I would've preferred no back straps as this can be used as a backpack too, all in all it works well for my needs although I did fill it up fairly quick. A value compared to a GoPro bag and will give almost the same results

    This camera bag stores everything I need to carry along with room to spare, while still being compact enough to not be an issue to bring along. I was just carrying my camera around to events, hiding it under my shirt/jacket when coming in and out of bad weather. Now I don't have to worry, because it provides the protection I need from the elements and keeps all of my accessories organized. A great purchase which I am very happy with. Well worth the money considering the cost of a DSLR and its accessories.

    It’s a bit smaller than I thought but it’s a decent camera bag for out and about quick photography. It has enough room to fit: Sony A6500 with a Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens attached to the body, a Sigma 19mm f2.8, a Sony 50mm f1.8, and a Sony 55-210 f3.5-6.3, an air blower, a couple filters, the charger, and a soft cleaning cloth. On the outside of the backpack it has 2 water bottle pockets on each side but I attach a small gorilla pod tripod to it.

    Convenient little bag

    I bought this bag for whenever I want to go for a quick shoot outside. I like the small convenient size, the quality is decent, but can't expect more given the price. What I don't like as much are the zippers...they seem a little flimsy but I've only had it a couple of days so will have to wait and see. Also, I wish it had some kind of protection in case the zippers would open and everything would fall out. I guess you just have to be careful with that.
