4.0 out of 5 stars Read other reviews carefully; Pro 75 AW is high quality with tricky rain cover, July 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW (Electronics)
Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW

READ OTHER REVIEWS CAREFULLY. Look at what the reviewer actually was describing. Several of the "most helpful" were actually for the Zoom AW models (not the *Pro* AW, which are more expensive, better padding, better materials, more attachment options). It seems like an Amazon problem; I think the reviews sometimes get incorrectly attached to a product "family," even to distant relatives on the family tree.

Other reviews of *this bag* are pretty much on the money: well built, well padded, nice expanding accessory pockets, good zippers, good stitching, lots of attachment/carrying options. I own both a Zoom 50 AW (consumer grade/price) and this Pro 75 AW (pro grade/price). The Pro is worth the price premium to me because of the additional protection offered to my gear while hiking and Nordic skiing (with seemingly no weight penalty). The only negative is that the rain cover is relatively complicated (compared to the Zoom AW). The Zoom AW is as simple as a shower cap; but, it has to be removed in order to access your camera. The Pro AW rain cover is much trickier to get on the bag, but allows access to the main compartment while it is still in place (though the accessory pockets are inaccessible). Neither cover is effective in heavy rain; but, they are both very helpful to me as extra protection from light rain or snow (in wetter conditions, I put my gear in heavy duty Ziploc bags inside the Lowepro).

I'm impressed enough that Lowepro will be tops on my list for my next bag purchase.
