My New Go-To Camera Bag

Let me just start off by saying I would give this bag 4.5 stars if I could because I think it is THAT good. This is now my go to camera bag. I have a few trips planned to go overseas this year so I was looking for a backpack with the following: --> Security/inconspicuous looks t deter pickpockets and thieves --> Comfort - I'll be wearing this bag all day, every day so it needs to be comfortable.

Let me just start off by saying I would give this bag 4.5 stars if I could because I think it is THAT good. This is now my go to camera bag. I have a few trips planned to go overseas this year so I was looking for a backpack with the following: --> Security/inconspicuous looks t deter pickpockets and thieves --> Comfort - I'll be wearing this bag all day, every day so it needs to be comfortable. I really wanted a backpack with a waist strap and a sternum strap. --> Flexibility - I wanted a bag that could have the camera storage section removed so the bag could act as a small day pack if I decided to leave the DSLR at home. --> Storage - I needed to be able to carry a jacket, bottle of water, map, personal electronics, and other travel items. It also needed to carry the following camera equipment: 5D, 17-40, 50mm, 70-200. --> Quick access - I wanted a backpack with quick access to my camera similar to many of the sling bags that are on the market. I'm not a big fan of walking around with a camera hanging off of my neck, so quick access is the way to go for me. To keep things short and sweet, I'm just going to list out the pros and cons I've discovered in the shot time of owning this bag. Cons --> Provided Dividers – The dividers that are provided with the bag are OK, but they really only allow you to "top load" your gear into this bag. If you try to load your gear horizontally through the side access pocket, you have to remove ALL of the padding and dividers and simply "drop" your camera in with one lens attached and that's ALL you can carry in the lower camera section. This is kind of ridiculous if you ask me. If they are marketing this bag as being able to have quick access, they should include dividers to support this horizontal setup. Luckily, I was able to use dividers from my other camera bags to come up with a pretty good setup. Lowepro should include these dividers so they can sell this bag as a true dual setup. I showed my custom horizontal/quick access setup in the video attached to this review. --> No Exterior Mesh Pocket – OK, this may seem nitpicky but it drives me nuts that there is not exterior mesh pocket for a water bottle on this bag. I'd rather there only be side access on only one side so they could have included a mesh pocket on the other side. Oh well, looks like I'll be buying the SlipLock water bottle holder. Pros --> Comfort – This bag is BY FAR the most comfortable bag that I own. It may just be me, but I feel like the majority of camera backpacks feel like a shoebox with straps; they are just ridged and awkward to carry. This bag is different. The lower camera section has some structure to protect your gear, but the upper part is more flexible to fit to the contours of your back. Because it contours to your back, the bag has a very low profile which is great for travel. Also, this bag is longer than most camera backpacks which complements my lanky frame. The shoulder straps are perfect and the sternum strap and detachable waist strap are great for long treks. --> Versatility – Like the name suggests, the bag is pretty versatile. The middle divider can be removed along with the camera dividers to create a decent sized backpack. Also, like I said above, the camera section can be setup for top loading or side access…if you have some spare dividers. It also has a built in rain fly and hidden tripod attachments. --> Size/Weight – This bag weighs practically nothing…right around 2 lbs. when empty. I can load it up with all of my gear and it is still very light compared to my other camera bags. Also, this is just about the perfect size for travel. It can be broken down for easy storage and it can fit under an airplane seat with no problem. It can also store just enough stuff for a full day's trek. Conclusion: If you are looking for a comfortable, lightweight, and versatile camera backpack that can carry a body, 2-3 lenses, and your basic travel gear, this bag should be on your short list.

Super comfy and surprisingly roomy

By

I wanted a bag primarily for day shoots....it needed to be comfortable, able to store my 45D, a couple of lenses (24-70 is the biggest at the moment) and the usual assortment of spare batteries, cards etc. I also wanted a reasonable size compartment for phone/purse/jacket/food etc. This bag has so far met my expectations. I am surprised at how much room there is, particularly in the personal area. My only slight gripe here is that accessability to this compartment is not easy, requiring 2 hands to locate and work the zipper. Not a major issue as only really access this when I am not shooting. Accessing the camera and lenses is great though. I like that you dont need to remove the back, and that you can acces both sides of the lower compartment... camera on one side and lenses on the other. The main strength of the bag has to be how comfy it is...honestly, it barely feels like you are wearing it despite all the kit loaded in. I tried to attach my large tripod...and indeed did so at home (horizontal at the bottom), and whilst it stuck out a bit it was secure. Not ideal if needing quick access, but manageable if trekking.

Love it

By

I love it. Doesn't look like a photo bag. Very smart design and comfortable. Ideal if you go arround just with a copuple of lenses, leaving space for light jacket, food or whatever you need in your vacations.

Very Good Camera Bag

By

I carried this bag as a day-pack while backpacking through Europe a few weeks ago and really enjoyed using it. Pros 1. Very comfortable. I wore the pack almost every day loaded with a D90, 17-200mm VR, Sigma 10-20, and a 35mm F1.8 for 2 weeks and didn't have any issues. 2. Rain fly works well. Kept my gear dry in London despite pretty heavy rain. 3. Tripod holder at the bottom of the bag worked well for my travel tripod (Slik Sprint Pro II). 4. Very secure. All the zippers are hidden under the front flap. Cons 1. Very difficult/near impossible to access the top compartment one handed/without setting the pack down. 2. I wish the upper compartment were larger. All in all, this is a very good pack and I'm very glad I picked it up for my trip.

Pros and cons but I do like it

By

I am going to begin by stating I am not a very experienced photographer and this is the first serious camera bag I have owned. I once owned a fairly cheap sling bag so that is my only comparison. I really wanted a backpack for my new DSLR (Canon T1i/500D), kit lens, and 70-300mm IS USM lens. I did not want a sling bag because my old one bothered my shoulder when wearing it for more than 2 hours at a time. The primary use for my camera bag will be for wildlife safaris in addition to light hiking. I have not had the chance to use the tripod holder yet. CONS: 1. The upper zipper compartment is not possible to use single handedly. I would prefer the ability to zip and unzip the compartment with one hand for the sake of ease and time. The top section fabric has not rigidity to it so if you try to zip or unzip the pocket with one hand the fabric pulls in the direction of the zipper but holds fast. 2. I like the sternum strap and as long as I have it tightened as much as it can go the straps do not rub too much. I carried my bag around for 8 hours in 90 degree heat last weekend and I had a swollen, sore spot where the backpack strap rubbed against my skin when the sternum strap was not tightened all the way. 3. The backpack is a tiny bit too long for my frame size and it doesn't fit quite right even with strap adjustments. I am a petite female at 5'1" with a slight frame. I doubt I will find a bag that is perfect for my frame where I can fit all my personal stuff plus camera equipment so I think this bag was a smart purchase for me. 4. I wish the top "personal" compartment was either a bit smaller (so there would be more room in the bottom compartment) OR the personal (top) compartment was as heavily padded as the bottom section. If it was more heavily padded I could put extra lens in it without worrying about the safety of them. 5. The bottom section when unzipped fully opens but if you don't have the top section fully zipped or if you have pens in the pen holders stuff will fall out of the top. It happened to me multiple times because I was too lazy to take the time to zip the top compartment fully. This "con" is probably just operator error. 6. I wish the memory card pocket was on the inside wall of the bottom section of the bag. I was on a safari last weekend with my bag and in order to switch out cards I had to open the bottom section of the bag fully because the pockets are rather tight. If the memory card pockets were on the inside wall instead of the "ceiling" of the bottom section the swap would be faster and easier. PROS: 1. With the exception of the bag rubbing my skin on the 8 hour day walking around it was extremely comfortable and never bothered my back or neck. I added about 15 pounds of gifts to the top section and the backpack was still comfortable. 2. I love the accessible pockets for writing utensils, cell phone, and other small items. 3. I had to use the All Weather cover at Victoria Falls and it worked extremely well. I do not rely on the AW cover 100% but for the times we walked through the mist it worked like a charm. 4. I love the inside mesh pocket in the top compartment; it is perfect for storing my camera manual. 5. If I remove and change the set-up of the bottom compartment I can fit my camera with 70-300mm lens attached in the bottom section which is the lens I use 90% of the time. 6. The backpack by itself is fairly lightweight and feels comfortable to wear. 7. In a pinch I can use this as a laptop bag by removing the section that divides the bag into top and bottom halves. The top half is not padded but if you're careful a laptop would be safe. Our laptop measures about 16.5" diagonal. I realize there is no existing "perfect" bag. I do not expect a perfect bag. I will possibly look to invest in another bag for the long safaris I plan on going on but for everyday use and 5 day or less trips I love this bag.
