As for the bag I wish I had bought this one first before any other I have had. It fits everything I have and is very comfortable on the back. Comes with plenty of dividers (I don't use all of them at the moment) that can be set out just as you want them.
It is an amazing bag though. So tough and you can rely on it all the time
I own peak design. Wandrd and thinktank bags as well. The peak design and this are my fav for sure. This if i go on full photography shoots.

Now like all bags, it has its pros and cons.
- Big Bag that can take a lot of equipment.
- Very Comfortable.
- Has a weather proof additional "Coat"
- The pocket on the lower strap are very useful.
- The 4 way entry to the bag can be really useful.
- The bag opens from the part directly on your back which makes it hard for pick pockets to steal anything you have during your trips.
- The two small side pockets are really useful to put things like extra batteries or batteries for your flash but miight not be enough if you have a long trip.
- Not enough pockets for equipment such as cleaning kits and cables. the cable pocket on the top is spacious however cant take a blower in it and when the camera is in the top part it takes some struggle to close it.
- The equipment u need to take with you (extra batteries, batteries for your Flash, remote control or delay timer etc...) will either have to be in the exterior pocket that you can attach to the bag (which won't be weather sealed as you have to remove them to place the cover), or you have to take out some lenses and fit the equipment inside as if it were a lens.
- When they say can fit a 15" laptop they actually mean a 15" Mac Book. If you try to put a laptop slightly larger (Height of the laptop - for me 3cm), it takes a lot of struggle to close the bag and it become uncomfortable as it is all compressed and the back will be slightly bent.
Again, I really enjoy the bag and think it is awesome and I wouldn't return it for these minor cons, but I think some small details like extra pockets for your cleaning equipment or a separate pocket for the laptop that can actually take a normal 15"laptop would be much better, especially for people who travel a lot.
Thank you very much for reading and hope this review helps for your choices.
Nikon D810 + Tamron 24-70mm f2,8 with L bracket attached ( it fits with battery grip but cannot be removed through top opening )
Nikon 70-200mmf2.8 , Nikon 85mm f1.4 , Nikon 50mm f1.8 and Nikon 1.4x tele converter.
batteries, memory cards ,small air blower and cleaning materials
Black Rapid strap
All of the above fitted in without using the external storage attachments that are included , As a day bag its compact and very sturdy and I would certainly recommend it .
The insides are fully configurable to your own requirements. By means of the velcro-tabbed dividers, you can pretty much set it up as you want. I've had it set up solely as a camera bag, with both my Canon bodies (550D and 760D) plus four additional lenses, assorted filters, chargers, batteries etc. Alternatively, on a recent trip to Copenhagen, I made the bottom section into the camera-dedicated area, a small section in the upper half or battery, charger, and filters, and he remainder of the top for general storage (guidebooks, umbrella, etc). This makes the bag very useful, as it's flexible to what you're trying to do.
The "hard top". I loved the fact that the top opening is actually rigid. You have no worries about someone squashing the top section. Plus, the zippered inside pocket is perfect for keys/passport/etc to save having to keep them in your pocket. In fact I like the fact that the whole thing is rigid with the cushioned insides. It's a lot more rugged that you realise...
The Additional extras: The extra exterior straps, bottle holder, tripod holder, etc are very useful, and a lot sturdier than the ones on the Fastpack 250.
Weight: This bag, while rigid and sturdy really didn't feel heavy at all, even when slung over one shoulder.
Side access panels. This bag has the same side access panels to get at your camera as on the FP250. Plus, since there are panes on BOTH sides, you can choose which way to access your camera.
Build quality: This is Lowepro, so you know you're getting a well made product.
Size. This easily fits into Airplane hand luggage requirements, so no worries about flying with it.
The back support area. While the LP250 had good support, this goes one better with the "aeration" holes to stop the old "sweaty back" problem of carrying a backpack for long periods of time.
Integrated rain cover. I got good use out of this on the trip. Very easy to fit and fold away. Even manages to cover the bag if you have the external water bottle holder fitted with a bottle in it.
The Niggles (Not sure they can be called minuses, really).
It takes a little getting used to the fact that to open it fully, you need to unzip the whole back (and that it's the part closest to your back that provides access).
Whilst it's very configurable, I'd recommend setting it up *prior* to a trip, rather than re-arranging the sections on the fly during a trip.
The dividers for creating the sections, particularly the larger dividers, have a LOT of velcro on them, so trying to fit them exactly where you want them can be a little bit difficult, as you'll find they've attached themselves as you put them in, rather than when you've got them in the position you actually want. (if you see what I mean!) forcing you to take them out and try again.
The memory card storage has gone from two pockets inside the camera flap to a "fold over" elasticated section in the top. You can fit two card in their cases in there, but you will probably have to take both out to work out which is which.
All in all, this is an excellent bag, as long as you set it up as you want. It gives more flexibility than the lower models, and could even be used as an overnight/weekend bag if you're not taking your full camera kit with you.
Because the main divider is only attached to 3 sides, it's possible for small/thin items to slip from the upper to the lower section occasionally.
A distanza di 6 mesi posso confermare la qualità dei materiali e l'impermeabilità sotto una leggera pioggia...
Ci sta un notebook da 13 pollici ma non quello da 15 che abbraccia meglio il modello 450.
Comode le tasche laterali, le imbottiture dei spallaci potevano essere costruite con più imbottitura...ma rimane comunque comodo da portare.
Sono usciti i modelli nuovi...ma rimane comunque attuale e magari si riesce anche a portarselo a casa con un forte sconto.
If, like me, you deliberate for weeks on purchases in order to find the right one, rest assured that this bag is unbeatable (in my opinion)!
There are plenty of internal dividers supplied, and they seem to stay in place very well. many bags in the past have had not enough dividers and they are not secure enough. Really pleased that Lowepro have got their dividers right.
The tripod holder is good, and secures my Manfrotto 190 easily enough.
I can fit all the kit I need to in this rucksack, and even fully loaded its very comfortable.
I was worried that when loaded up it feel too heavy and be uncomfortable, but this is not the case and its easy to carry about.
I was also sceptical about the access methods, but again am pleased to say I was wrong. The side access and top access to cameras is easy to use, and opening the back to get access to everything is not an issue.
I can fit my 15" MacBook Pro in along with my kit which means I can shoot and edit images if I need to on project all from the one bag making travel far easier.
This is definitely a camera rucksack I would have no problems recommending.
I have also used it when I'm just going out for a couple of hours purely to shoot. For this it's great - it's handy to have everything in one bag, easily accessible, and easy to carry, but I wouldn't honestly recommend it for travelling.
My initial issues were regarding the compartments and storage of my Eos5D with battery grip. Makes it unstable and fat at the base! The camera with grip is a little too big for the top opening for example.
However, cause I loved the build quality I played with the compartments and added some dividers in from my old bag (Lowepro also) and now I am very happy with it.
It's very comfortable, with all the adjustments you need to make the bag sit as high as you want and as snugg as you want, straps are very well padded and the chest strap helps redistribute the weight very well.
Plenty of space for lenses (I carry 5) and a flash and laptop. makes it dam heavy though!!
External webbing is great, I've bought the Lowepro 100 S&F Filter pouch. Works a treat as does the tripod straps.
Can easily fit 2 DSLRs and 4 lenses comfortably and probably more if required. Along with filters spare batteries and cleaning accessories.
I loved the idea of the loops to attach further pouches if required, which I have done and is why I went for this bag.
Worth the money very well made, tough, comes with waterproof cover and 3 pouches you can attach.
Bag arrived within 3 days on a standard delivery. Perfect for Landscape trips.
