Comfort is King

This is really a top notch product. Super comfortable and rugged. Finding the perfect bag can be so tricky. A little too small, too big, to narrow, wide...etc. I found this one to work out really well. Even though this is not billed a laptop bag, with a little adjustment, I can get my 13" laptop in the outer sleeve when I travel. I comfortably carry around a DSLR with a mid-sized zoom lens and a couple of primes. The upper compartment is pretty spacious for my lens cleaning stuff and tabletop...

The tripod holder on back of the bag works really well too with it's easy adjustment.

There's a great pack in here

By

from Houston, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

The Minimus pack is fairly compact yet allows protection for a DSLR, a couple of accessory lenses and flash. The main lower section access is good, but the side access door does not allow easy access to my D200 with a mid range zoom; forget about returning the camera here. But that's OK for me since previous reviews prepared me for this possibility. I smaller camera body may do just fine... The top utility storage section is a good size, leading me to buy this pack; but I wish that the load lifter shoulder straps did not have to be unclipped to access it. The outside expandable pocket is a great feature, and similar to some non-photo day packs it allows jackets and other items to be stowed. The weight of the pack is not a problem as it carries well, and the build quality is the usual high level that can be expected from Lowepro.

None Better

By

from Wildwood, Oregon  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a great slr backpack that is true to its description. Smartly designed, the pack is stylish, secure, durable, and comfortable--not cumbersome like so many other types. I don't carry a lot of extra camera gear, so the size is perfect. The extra pockets are roomy enough to hold additional items such as books, maps, binoculars, etc.

Excellent Design!

By

from Oneonta, Al  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very well designed photo backpack. Also very rugged & durable feel to it, as is any Lowepro product I've owned. I am very happy with my choice! The only drawback is limited space for carrying multiple lens & a flash, but I knew it wasn't designed for more than a couple of extra lens when I ordered.
