Great bag for a lot of gear

I have had several Lowepro shoulder bags for a couple of years -- mostly for carrying equipment to sporting events, band competition, etc. Not heavy use but also haven't babied them -- always good luck with them: rugged, good construction, no defects. Wanted a back-pack and ordered the Lowepro Flipside 200 Digital SLR Backpack. A little smaller than I wanted: camera section holds Nikon D200 w/17-55mm + one additional lens. Upper section can hold additional lens, flash, etc. Once my wife start...

I have had several Lowepro shoulder bags for a couple of years -- mostly for carrying equipment to sporting events, band competition, etc. Not heavy use but also haven't babied them -- always good luck with them: rugged, good construction, no defects. Wanted a back-pack and ordered the Lowepro Flipside 200 Digital SLR Backpack. A little smaller than I wanted: camera section holds Nikon D200 w/17-55mm + one additional lens. Upper section can hold additional lens, flash, etc. Once my wife started to use it, though, she has been quite happy with it and uses it all the time. I've since ordered the Flipside 300 and the combination of the two covers all the gear we need. Flipside 300 is noticeably bigger both in the camera section and the upper area -- great for transporting gear. Both have appropriate adjustments and have been very comfortable for long periods. The 200 is best when you don't need much, 300 when you need to take more. Highly recommend both.

Lowepro Flipside 300 -- needs improvemen

I got this bag primarily because of the security factor -- it's one of only two camera bags that I know of (the other ones being in the Crumpler line) that can't be opened while you're wearing them, which as any urban traveller knows is a big risk.However, I don't carry a lot of camera equipment (DSLR body + two lenses + small flash + Gorillapod) and wanted something that would also fit a few daily essentials (guidebook, a water bottle, jacket, etc.) -- and this bag just isn't flexible enough...

I got this bag primarily because of the security factor -- it's one of only two camera bags that I know of (the other ones being in the Crumpler line) that can't be opened while you're wearing them, which as any urban traveller knows is a big risk.However, I don't carry a lot of camera equipment (DSLR body + two lenses + small flash + Gorillapod) and wanted something that would also fit a few daily essentials (guidebook, a water bottle, jacket, etc.) -- and this bag just isn't flexible enough to fit that purpose. Even though there are a lot of velcro bits on the padded dividers they're actually arranged such that you can't be that creative with how you arrange the dividers. I struggled a lot to find an arrangement that would maximize the space and also keep my camera equipment separated from the stuff I put at the top. The only arrangement I could come up with (placing the long divider diagonally across the bottom) was too awkward to be functional.Ultimately I felt like I wasn't getting enough flexible carrying capacity for what felt like a sizeable bag. And, of course, it still looks like a camera bag. I've returned it and am going with the National Geographic Walkabout Rucksack, which sacrifices some security but looks and works a lot better for my purposes.

Good but not Great

By

from Indiana  -  Pro Photographer

This is an OK case but I prefer traditional style cases. Camera items are harder to get to and the case does not hold as many items as you would think.

Lowepro just load and go

By

from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use the flipside 300 everyday! It goes everywhere with me. I love the size of it, and it fits all of my equipment. The straps are comfortable on my shoulders and I feel like my equipment is well protected in this case. I don't like the tripod holder. My tripod tends to move around a lot when it is in the holder. I also wish there was a side access to the camera in the bag when it is slung over one shoulder, but access otherwise is great! I would recommend this product to any photographer looking for a great value on an awesome backpack case!

Great Backpack, roomy!!!

By

from Harlingen, TX  -  Casual Photographer

it protects great the equipment from weather, bumps and people... the zipper it is in the back, so the access of the equipment is hard... you have to take it off, or use the waist harness and turn it to the front (cool feature)... the chest harness is very useful if you are hicking. i got in it 1 camera with vertical grip and a lens attached... 3 extra lenses and 2 flashes. the accessory pouch is great and roomy too!!

A great quick run pack!

By

from RALEIGH, NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this pack for quick runs,transporting gear or when I'm tooling around town.I like this pack because of the way it swings around so I can access gear from back without taking it off. This is not a big lens pack! One big lens attached to camera is about all that will fit (properly). Great starter pack!!!!

Re the question about size of tripod

I carry a Manfrotto 190XB with either a ball head or a Manfrotto 3025 head. Works fine for these.

Awesome Backpack!

By

from Fargo, ND  -  Casual Photographer

The LowePro Flipside 300 is awesome! Very comfortable yet plenty of protection. It is definitely roomy for how compact it is. I have my Nikon D80 with an 18-135 Nikkor lens, my Pentax 35mm camera w/two lenses, a flash, plenty of film, and my battery charger all in this pack at the same time. It all fits just right. Highly recommended for anyone that doesn't have to lug around three cameras and a bunch of lenses!

Awesome backpack

By

from Harlingen, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

I'm using this product for my Olympus E-5 with vertical grip, attached with a 14-54II with hood, 2 FL-36R, vertical grip battery, a black rapid, 2 flash wireless receptors, cable release, some filters, and all the cables and battery chargers... believe me it is roomy. All the interior dividers can be customize, the removable waist and chest harnesses are great... I don't want them on all the time, the removable accessory bag it's nice. The zipper would not open all the way... so it is kind of hard use the very bottom spaces, but not critical.
