About Lowepro Hatchback 22L

The Lowepro Photo Hatchback 22L AW Backpack (Slate Gray) is an excellent choice for a day out in the field, walk along the boardwalk with the family or even a quick down and dirty gig. It's designed to hold your DSLR with an 18-105mm lens attached and two or three additional moderately sized lenses, flash, accessories as well as your iPad or tablet held safely within its own dedicated compartment.

The "wow" feature of this bag is that it comes with a removable camera box which, when removed, turns the pack into a full-fledged, empty pack that can be used as a daypack. The camera box comes with a storm flap for protection and two handles for easy removal. Load it beforehand, place it in the pack and you're off. And, on days when you don't need it, just lift it out and the pack is ready for clothes, books, food, jacket or groceries.

Access is via a top loading zippered opening or its very handy side "hatch" for rapid retrieval of your camera when the shot appears. All the zippers are YKK for added durability. The 2.1 lb pack is comfortable with its adjustable backpack straps. This is an outdoor pack that is prepared for all weather eventualities since it contains Lowepro's All-Weather cover that can be rapidly deployed when the weather turns against you. The Photo Hatchback is made from strong 600D polyester and 210D nylon ripstop polyurethane-a combination made for the outdoor enthusiast.

Falling apart in four weeks...

Perfect except... it is falling apart with very little use. I am currently traveling in the UK and it is all I have so I can't send it back. When I return in July I doubt Lowepro or Adorama will accept it as a return (I once tried to return a pack to Lowepro and they would not accept it). Too bad after 25 years with Lowepro I may try Tamrac or something else...

Love it

By

from Denver, CO  -  Casual Photographer

I bought the bag to have for an 11 day cruise to the Panama Canal coming up in March. I took it on a quick trip to WI in January. It comfortably fit my camera Canon Rebel with the 70-300 mm lenses attached if I turned it sideways. Body and lense was approx. 8 1/2" long. I can fit the camera with its 55-135mm attached the way the bag is designed and fit another lens. I was pleasantly surprised at the room for my wallet, Ipad, book, and other "carry" on items in the front portion of the bag. I found NO cons to this bag as a casual photographer

Great backpack for the urban explorer, hiker, or everyday travel. Holds a lot of gear and everything you would need. I bought 1 for my film camera and then bought 2 more for my digital slr and to hold a GoPro, acc., and a second dslr.

Great pack. Not too big for mirrorless

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this pack for an upcoming hiking trip. I was concerned that it might be too large for my mirrorless setup. It isn't. Its a very nice compact bag that would work well with a large mirrorless camera kit or a smallish DSLR kit. You could probably use a large DSLR, but then you would be limited to just one or two lenses. The top part of the pack holds a decent amount, but the whole pack is very nice and light and seems very well built. Very happy with my purchase.

Great small packpack

By

from Southwest Utah  -  Photo Enthusiast

A very useful backpack. Holds my Nikon D7000 with 18-105 lens attached, normal lens, small flash and filters in bottom compartment, plus a couple pounds of gear in the padded upper compartment. Outer sleeve holds an iPad, plus small tripod or two water bottles on the side. Bottom camera compartment only open from the back side, so you have to remove it in order to gain access to your gear -- great safety precaution.

Perfect for day trips, and the double use as just a day bag is a bonus. Perfect size and quality construction.

Clever, but not perfect

By

from SF Bay Area, CA  -  Casual Photographer

Attracted by the versatility of being able to use it as a gear pack that has extra room (for day hikes, traveling), or as a straight daypack. Being able to remove the gear compartment completely, and open the internal "divider" are definitely key features. Shoulder straps and back padding seem plenty comfortable, and the included sternum and waist straps are definitely pluses (although the waist strap could be a little more substantial (-- wider, with pockets?). I also like iPad/tablet-size pocket on the outside-- very useful, perfect size, and reassuring that there's at least some padding. Minuses: although there's an inner pocket, it's really just one built-in zippered pouch (but it does have a key fob!); the two mesh pockets would be nicer if they were zippered, and there were a bit more pockets and such (like a conventional student daypack) for coins, tissues, gum, etc. Although the flap covering the camera compartment has one memory card pocket that's all -- add'l pockets for other small things like more memory cards, batteries, cables, lens tissues, filters, etc would have been useful and could have easily fit. The other big minus is that although the side pocket can indeed hold a small tripod, monopod, or collapsible walking pole, there's no strap to secure the top of whatever sticks out above the pockets -- even loops or other types of gear attachment points located at top corners would have been VERY useful even if I had to supply my own straps or ties. So, a few more doo-dads and compartments would have made it a great daypack or a great photo pack; without those, it's merely an adequate pack for either purpose. But, it's very good as a pack that doubles as BOTH, and the option to use it as a regular daypack is worth the sacrifices.

Lowepro Photo Hatchback

By

from Hilton Head Island  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love my Hatchback Pro. Primarilary I use it for my camera and equipment when I go on a photo shoot with our camera club. I also find it indispensable when traveling. It safely holds camera, equipment, iPad and other electronic "stuff". It also holds a change of clothes if the airline "misplaces" my luggage. The bag is lightweight and comfortable to carry.it is a treasure. So glad that I bought it.

Questions about this item:

Kate G  I will be travelling with my new Canon 60D and one attached lens (18-200). Will this lens fit while attached if I turn it sideways in the box? I bought this lens so that I would only need one lens while travelling, and I really don't want to have to detach...
KENT W  Yes, I believe your lens will fit as the inner setup is quite customizable. Overall I very much like the pack, however I have only had it for a short time (I bought it in December and have "used" it for about four weeks) and already the inner lining is coming apart. I have taken a photo but this template does not allow me to upload it... I would certainly return the pack to Lowepro or Adorama for replacement or repair if I were in a position to do so but I am traveling un the UK and it is all I have got for my gear. I will not return to the USA until July and I wonder if they will even accept a return that late. What can I do? Hope you have better luck.
Kenneth G  Would this be good. To carry a celestron c8?
TONI D  I bought this pack to carry a Nikon D600, a 28-300mm Nikon Lens, a 50mm lens, extra batteries,SB-900 flash, cleaning cloths etc. The compartment in the back is very adjustable and fit all of those just fine. Reading the specs on your telescope, the lenth of the scope portion shows about 17"....this may be a tight fit length wise and bulky given your scopes' circumference for the back compartment, however, I think it might fit great in the front larger zipper compartment. You may be able to put accessories in the back part and you would even probably still have room in the larger front compartment and the other compartment on the front. You could stick a tri-pod or colapsable stand in either of the sides because the stretchy mesh is very forgiving. Overall I absolutely LOVE this pack. We took it with us on our tour of England, Ireland and Scotland and was very travel friendly and safe for my equipment.
