So far I've taken this backpack camping (full of camera gear) and I've also gone on a one-day mini-adventure to an island where I hiked about 10km up a hill; with some camera gear removed (fewer batteries, no tripod or laptop), but still fairly packed. While I need to buy better shoes for hiking, this backpack was quite comfortable, with no discomfort in my shoulders, back or waist (from the detachable waist belt).
There are aspects of the bag I'd improve if I was in charge of designing it, but they're fairly minor. For example, the internal compartment zippers work well, but the little zipper-pull handles (which resemble the ends of shoelaces) aren't great for gripping - the external zipper-pulls (which you'll be using far more often) are significantly better however. The dividers can also be a bit difficult to get perfect, simply because you generally don't want to velcro them to the inside of the side-access doors (which make up roughly the bottom half of the side walls), and so that leaves you with the front wall, a little bit of the upper side walls, and the bottom, requiring you to get creative if you want to divide the sections accessible from the side (like I did in my pictures). Ultimately however, I'm not sure what Lowepro could do about that, other than either removing the ability to unzip the rear (one of the best features of the bag), or inventing some kind of new mechanical divider / shelving system. Either way, the dividers still work well enough for me.
Overall the bag is also built very durably (I expect to still be using it 10 years from now), comes with a good number of accessories (more dividers than I knew what to do with, also a water bottle pouch for bottles up to roughly 10cm (4 inches) in diameter (a 1.5L [50oz] bottle fit snugly), a rectangular pouch (that can attach externally for fit internally), and a little soft nylon bag (I use it and the rectangular pouch to organise charged vs expended batteries). The built-in rain cover is also done quite well; you never notice it at the bottom of the bag until you look for it, and because the rain cover is permanently attached at one end, you can pull it out and over the bag fairly quickly without having to worry about orientation, etc.
While this is subjective, I originally was a little apprehensive about the bag's 'tacticool' aesthetics, but it's only grown on me since getting it, as it's a rather clean-looking bag and the webbing blends in a little due to the black-on-black. As a 6ft, ~90kg guy, the bag is a nice size as well; while it's obviously not small, it matches my silhouette well and doesn't rise above your shoulders, so it doesn't look like a bulky hiking backpack.
Overall, it's close enough to perfect for me to give it a 5/5.
Top international reviews
• This backpack is not giant, but it offers a huge amount of storage for carrying around up to 5-6 lenses, 2 cameras, a tripod or two, and all the parts necessary for carrying your photography equipment with ease + many accessible extra pockets in which to keep accessories and travel essentials.
It holds almost everything I want to put in it.
• There is also dedicated space for a 15-inch laptop to keep your workflow mobile.
• Easily configurable internally. Modular design allows for setting the internal compartments as needed, the layout is fully customisable according to your own wishes using the included multiple dividers that are also included + the top compartment access is perfect for a quick run and gun scenario.
• The shoulder straps are thick, sturdy and comfortable, easily adjustable, and stay secure on your shoulders when you walk. The waist strap and chest clip also really help relieve some of the weight of carrying such a large kit on your back.
• It comes with a handy All-Weather cover for rain, snow, dust, sand, and more.
These features, along with all its other amazing features, makes the ProTactic 450 AW II - perfect for professionals and enthusiasts.

(I do not consider this significant enough to deduct a star)
The Lowepro ProTactic 450 AW II is exactly what I was looking for: a heavy-duty, sturdy backpack that feels (and probably is) Indestructible.
It is comfortable, durable and it can carry a HUGE amount of gear.
J'ai mis plusieurs semaines, j'ai essayé moult modèles. Beaucoup ont été proches de me satisfaire quasiment à 100%, mais un détail pêchait toujours (agencement, volume, confort...)
Notamment la série Protactic AW (série 1) était assez décevante et j'avoue avoir acheté la série 2 sans conviction. Je pensais déjà à d'autres marques / modèles !
Mais quel ravissement à la réception.
Déjà esthétiquement, j'ai été comblé ! Beau sac, il est vraiment très stylé !
Belle coupe, belle tenue au dos, chargé ou non !
L'agencemùent à l'intérieur est très bien pensé et facile à adapter. C'est tout ce que je voulais pour y mettre, au maximum :
- Un canon EOS 6D Mark II avec son trip
- Un objectif 24-70 L II monté dessus
- un objectif 50mm 1,4 en plus
- un drone Mavic pro 2
- 2 batteries Mavic Pro 2 supplémentaires
- 1 manette MAVIC
- des affaires chaudes (Kway, Polaire)
- des diverses connectiques, cartes mémoires
- Un trépied
- une bouteille d'eau 1L
- batterie nomade 20 000MaH
- stylo et carnet
- Macbook Pro 15"
- des clés
- des hélices de rechange
Et bien... TOUT rentre ! Et largement !
Et il en reste !
Je mettrai des photos dès ce weekend (17 Nov) pour montrer mon agencement, ce que j'y mets, la tenue du sac exceptionnelle
Si vous envisagez ce sac, n'hésitez plus et essayez.
Le prix est certes rédhibitoire pour les budgets les plus serrés mais l'effort vaut la peine et sera un investissement en permanence apprécié.
The internal space is not very square which wastes a lot of space. The bag is not deep enough to stand bodies and lenses vertically and still be able to close the main access flap, and that makes it impossible to safely place a laptop in the bag as it effectively reduces that space even more.
The side access pockets are a good idea, but rapidly become useless as they form a substantial part of the interior surfaces to which the velcro dividers must attach. So you get the choice of having usable side access and not being able to usefully divide up that space, or losing side access by attaching the dividers to them. There also simply aren't enough divider inserts provided.
The exterior is also not great: if you lash a tripod to the side then you lose access to one of the side flaps. Unless you skew the top fixing then you also end up fixing it onto one of the small upper side pockets, not only losing access to that pocket a well, but putting a lot of load onto a much smaller and weaker zipper than the others on this bag.
If you use the included accessory straps to fix the tripod to the extensive webbing on the rear of the pack then you can't really use much of the remaining webbing to attach any of the other included accessory bags. The bag also cannot lay flat for the rear access if the tripod is mounted on the back. Despite all the attachment points, none are provided in my preferred location: horizontally, beneath the bag.
The bottom of the bag has a rain cover stowed away, but it's permanently fixed to the bag. A bad design choice as when the cover has got wet and then needs to dried it can't be removed and given a really good shake and pat dry, or hung over a handy chair back or on a clothes line to dry. Sure, it means the cover won't get lost, but lost covers are easy to replace (just use a draw-string bin-bag if necessary) and folded wet covers go mouldy and smelly.
The zips felt awful and cheap. Great big chunky things with no water-resistance at all, and certainly not smooth to operate. But in my case as soon as the bag was part-loaded the zips kept catching up on the interior lining of the bag.
The only good points were that the bag had a generous level of accessories included, except for the dividers, and the straps were wide and deeply padded though not too wide to mount Peak Design Capture clips. I also liked that the waist belt was fully detachable to save some weight or to use as a standalone utility belt which you can attach accessories to. The belt also had a couple of small zippered pockets.
As a photographic gear holder it's simply not good enough. If the zips weren't so poor then as a general carrying bag with a small amount of camera gear then it would be OK.
I've now sent mine back and have a totally different model from MindShift arriving soon.
My minor gripes would be that when carrying a laptop as well it is a little less comfortable and that there aren't quite enough pockets for smaller items. However this is no different to all the camera bags I have used. I begin to think that my perfect camera bag doesn't exist but this is pretty close.
Leider hat aber auch LowePro hier einen nicht unerheblichen Designfehler vollbracht. Für das abfangen der Gurtüberlängen an den Beckengurten wurden Gurtschlaufen mit Klettbandbefestigung verwendet. Diese Klettbandreste zeigen nach innen, also in Richtung Körper. Wenn jetzt diese Gurtschlaufen sich im Mittel des Beckengurtes befinden dann zieht das Klettband Fäden an der Kleidung. ( siehe Bild ) Hier besonders bei Microfaser, die z.B. bei Sportkleidung verwendet wird. Das hinterlässt dann hässliche Spuren darauf. Es muss also beim tragen unbedingt darauf geachtet werden, das die Gurtschlaufen mit der Klettbandseite nicht mit der Kleidung in Berührung kommen kann. Leider kann man das Gurtband auch nicht drehen, so das die Klettbandseite nach außen zeigen würde.
Da dies nicht unerheblich ist, kann ich nur 3 Sterne geben. Ansonsten wären es mindestens 5 Sterne.
I bought it because I had kata photo bag which had slightly too narrow shoulder straps and rubbish waist support. Other than that the bag was very good.
The shoulder and waist straps are a lot better at this lowepro bag, my shoulders do not ache as much as quickly as they used to do with kata bag, this is the plus.
I have seen people making comments that that bag does not stand upright, it's true and it's a bit annoying sometimes. The other thing I noticed is that when you try to unzip the top pocket the handle of the rucksack gets in the way, minor inconvenience. The two small pockets on the side are quite small, they expand very slightly due to the folded material.
I have not had the bag for long and I am not a pro photographer. Can't comment on longevity of the product. My other lowepro bags were good.
If you can buy it at a discount price, get one.
I also like the fact that you can attach the pouches to it.
Will be using it as my carry on the plane bag.
It will hold my equipment not got allot but it now I can buy more (wife permitting of course).
Other than camera it will hold my travel sweets, iPad and a bottle of rum ( or your choice of alcohol).
Not an every day bag unlike my sling bag I also bought but perfect for travel protection.
Perhaps take a camera case just for those evening walks to get that sunset.
This bag was superb. This can take a lot of your camera gear. I have A7mk3 with several lenses in it, all my cleaning gear as well as my headphones and MacBook Pro 15in with room to spare.
Plenty of possible ways to customise the outside of the bag for a drinks pocket and tripod holder etc
It has great support for your back as well as a cover that comes out from underneath to wrap the bag if it starts to rain.
It is quite big, so remember with a lot of gear in it, it can get quite heavy. So think about what you really need to take with you
I personally don’t have any negatives to say on this bag. After trying several different bags. I’m very happy with this one
My biggest issue however is that its just slightly larger than a lot of airlines carry on.
No one in their right mind puts their equipment into the hold.
On few occasions I've had to remove my camera and lens to check this bag in as its too big for carry on by somthing stupid like 2cm.
Fits everything, gets heavy.
Built like a tank
After 4 weeks in Asia it has been great my only slight issue is that there's no convenient place to have a strap to hang it from my tripod.
Great quality backpack
