A great "Around Town" Len Bag,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW (Electronics)
I have so many camera bags in my possession right now that I actually think I've beaten my girlfriend's stash of bags and purses. Each bag I have has a significant purpose for the things I do in life. Whether it be for a long trip overseas or an in studio photo session, each bag does it's job. I needed a bag that wasn't a backpack, a suitcase or even "a typical camera bag." Something that could lug around my Canon 5D mated with a 70-200 Telephoto lens and battery grip. I accidentally purchased the Topload Zoom AW thinking that's the one I needed. Apparently it's not modeled for a Camera with Battery Grip, so I returned it and picked up the Toploader Pro 75 AW. (Please be careful when selecting one of the 7 TopLoad bags that Lowepro has to offer.
The Toploader Pro 75 AW fits my Canon 5D (Series 1) with Battery Grip and Strap just about right. It's a little tight with no room to move, but after adjusting the removable foam pads around, I can say that the fit is almost perfect. I can have my 70-200 2.8 mounted to the body with the grip or my 17-40 with no problem. I just recently purchased the Lens Case LC 1 and LC 2 to take advantage of Lowepro's Sliplock System with this Bag. The Oblong shape is what I really like about this bag. I'm a skinny dude, 5'8 and the bag seems to rest just right around my hip and down my side. My Speedlite with in it's case fits comfy in the front pocket and the open pocket on the other side is nice enough to put little nick'nacks in as well. Overall, I'm very happy with this bag and with my purchase directly from Amazon. Do try to go to a camera shop and check one out for yourself to make sure it's the right fit for you before order. It will save you a lot of time. Thanks

This review is for the 75 version, but included in reviews of smaller bags.

Will this attach to a belt or does it only have a shoulder strap?

Noticed it says 102 comments for this bag BUT which bag? There are FOUR, two in $60range and two in $30range. All comments lumped together. With thanks some specify which bag. Prospective buyers need to pay attention. I bought the 55 for lower price and similar size to 75. It fits my large SLR w/220mm. It is only a "sattelite" bag from a much larger one which I normally leave in car. Big bag too heavy for fun photography. I have five lens etc. but seldom carry more than one (90%) or two (10%) while shooting. Often I just carry camera on monopod with no case except back in car. That is when I am taking pics all the time and ready to shoot any moment. Incidentally I use quick release plates permanently for fast monopod or tripod attachment.

Yes. The Toploader Pro 75 AW will attach to a belt. It has section in the rear of the bag that has 2 opened ends allowing you to slide a thick belt through it. This area is also padded adding comfort
