Though it will definitely protect from damp to slightly wet conditions, if it was submerged for more than a few moments would allow some water to come in.

The padded straps are very comfortable and the back mesh helps with ventilation.

Before I was willing to put any gear into this bag, I had to test its limits. To simulate the worst conditions that I might expect to find myself in with this bag, I placed it squarely in the path of my showerhead and let the water do its work for just over ten minutes. I rotated the bag a quarter turn every couple of minutes, and even placed the bag on its front and back for the last couple of minutes. To determine whether or not water had penetrated the bag, I placed tissues on the outside of the inner camera case but within the dry-bag, as well as a tissue within the inner camera bag itself. Not surprisingly, for a bag of this quality, not a single drop of water made it to either set of tissues.

For my next test, although I knew that the bag was not designed to be water proof, I decided to fill up the tub to determine the true limitations of the bag. My test was quickly shot in the foot when I discovered that the bag floats! And floats pretty well! I actually had to put most of my weight on the bag to get it to stay at the bottom of the tub. After about a minute under water, I pulled the bag to examine my tissues. Again, and this time surprisingly, there was not a drop of water on either tissue.

Needless to say this bag is definitely water resistant and splash-proof. I will not hesitate to put my camera and lenses in this bag even in extremely wet environments... the last time I went whitewater rafting comes to mind as a perfect use.

As for the other features of the bag, I was a little concerned about how much water would be absorbed by the perforated padding on the back support and shoulder straps of the bag. After my tests, I realized that this is not an issue.

When you unroll the top of this bag it is about 31 inches tall. The opening is about 21 inches wide. I like that this opening is so large. It makes getting the smaller bag in and out fairly easy.
The exterior (yellow) bag is made of a very durable waterproof material.

Inside, you will find a separate camera bag that you can pull out. It is gray in color and has a zippered top and double handles. It contains padded dividers (that have hook & loop tape) the you can configure into any arrangement that suits you. The top dimensions of the gray bag are ~13" X 7.5" at the top and slightly smaller at the bottom (~11" X 6"). It is 10 inches high.

This camera backpack is really well made and comfortable to use. The backpack straps are adjustable and have reinforcing straps at the upper chest and waist.

This is a great bag for anyone who does a lot of outdoor photography.

Add this to the list of items visible from space because this puppy is bright, bright yellow.

The pictures just don't do it justice. When you unbox the Lowepro for the first time, you'll be astounded by the color intensity (sunglasses recommended).

I wondered at first if I'd really want to wear this thing, but after the initial shock, it seemed like a good idea...hiking in the wilderness, easy tool for a helicopter (or a satellite) to spot you if you're lost.

The bag is not water-proof. It's splash proof, rainproof. You could get it quite wet and protect your camera, but it's not billed as being 100% waterproof, just FYI. The IPX-6 rating is for water being blasted at the case and not submerged (that's IPX-7), but the standard testing is a bombardment of water at 100 liters per second for at least 3 minutes.

The material is great and waterproof as far as I can see, it's most likely the opening that could provide trouble if you accidentally drop the case in the river and can't recover it for 8 hours.

With that said, it seems like it provides more than enough protection.

We took it on a photo shoot in a canyon, walking through the river most of the time, and felt great to have the splash proof assurance should I stumble or fall.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind.

The way the bag works is by rolling down the top and then buckling the edges down. If you're used to sling pack with easy access to your camera, this is not it. The top of the bag when unrolled is quit tall. You'll want to set the bag down to open it to get your camera out. It's a little bit of a hassle if you plan to be on the move a lot, but still near or in the water.

Super fantastic camera backpack, if a waterproof pack is what you really need.

If you are a photography enthusiast and just can't imagine leaving your best gear at home when you plan to go on an outing that involves water - e.g., canoeing, whitewater rafting, water skiing, wake boarding, or hiking pretty much anywhere in western Washington or Oregon...heh heh...etc., then you should look into this product.

The bag has comfortable, heavy-duty shoulder straps. The main body of the pack is bright yellow, heavy rubberized material. I have to admit that I am still a little leery of the ability of this bag to resist punctures, but so far so good. There are also external points (gray areas) where you can strap additional things to the outside of the pack (straps not included).

When the pack is open it's simply an open-topped compartment - no zippers, snaps, or other closing devices. When you are ready to close it up for wet work, then you hold the front and back edges of the top of the pack together (there are gray strips that show you what goes against what) and you roll the top of the pack down, preferably at least two full rolls. You then insert snaps into buckles on both sides of the pack and you cinch them down. Viola - protection against most water hazards.

Your camera is carried in a removable, inner compartment that also closes. It's whole job appears to be to provide physical protection for your camera and lenses. The inner pouch is large enough to house a camera body and one or two additional lenses...depending on the lenses. My basic field load is a Nikon D5100, 18-55mm lens and 70-300mm lens. This fits easily into the pack.

There is frankly not a lot of extra room in the pack once the inner camera bag is inserted, so this is not an answer to long-distance backpacking, but it's great for day outings where water may be an issue.

I have no complaints so far...so 5 stars.
