5.0 out of 5 stars Great bag for changing your set up on the move!, July 24, 2009
This review is from: Lowepro Flipside 400 AW Pro DSLR Camera Backpack (Camera)
I took this bag with me on a back packing trip in Moab, Utah. We had a base camp where we slept but we trecked the area daily to see what we could discover. Not knowing what to expect I was able to pack a D300, a 200-500mm f/5-6.3, a 55-200mm VR f/4-5.6, a 17-50mm f/2.8, a 90mm macro f/2.8, a tripod, and accessories. The great thing about this bag is that it made it very easy to change lenses on the move. Not knowing what we were going to walk up on I had the opportunity to shoot everything from my telephoto to macro. I simply took down the shoulder straps (while the bag is supported by the waist belt), and swung it around on my hips. The bag lays flat like a table supported by your mid section. Since the bag opens from the opposite side of most backpacks I was able to change my lenses as I walked. The bag stayed sturdy and made a great table to lay the camera on and switch out lenses. This was great because not everyone I was with was a photographer. I was able to change my set up, talk with my friends and keep up while getting my shots. Another great benefit to the camera compartment opening from the opposite side is that when you set your bag down, the ground touches the outside of the backpack. This helped prevent from dust getting into the camera compartment when opening it. This was an amazing bag to take when you want to bring a lot of equipment. The bag is sturdy enough to support a large amount of weight while still maintaining functionality. I was most impressed that the bag could lay flat like a table and still support all the equipment in the bag with out over extending from my waist. This is a very comfortable, functional and well designed bag.

Hi there. :) I just ordered the Lowepro Flipside 400 AW Backpack (haven't received it yet), and I am curious...do you think a small, 2 liter camel pack would fit in there as well? Just wondering, because my current DIY camera pack kit consists of a small pack for my T3i, and a camel pack, together in a whole other pack...which is really a pain in the neck. I go out on my quad a lot, and the two things I need the most are A) my camera equip., and B) water. I live in the desert, so logic would say not in that order, but I beg to differ. ;)
