4.0 out of 5 stars Very decent, small, inexpensive camera bag., October 3, 2010
This review is from: Lowepro Adventura 140 Camera Case (Black) (Electronics)
I bought this camera bag mainly because it is really well-priced for the quality. Of course, it's Lowepro, so you KNOW it's good, but it's really, surprisingly well-padded. As soon as I put my camera in and zipped it closed for the first time, I could just feel how safe it was... and after accidentally dropping the bag a few times, I know that it is indeed safe.

I love the zipper + clasp-close that it has in order to protect from rain. I think that, along with the really well-made padding, is my favorite feature of the bag. For me, it fit a Nikon D40 with a 35mm lens attached, an 18-55mm lens on the left side, and a lens hood on the ride. Also, it has room for extra memory cards in the front.

The strap is extremely versatile -- I love that it's long enough that I can wear it slung across my body and have it resting near my hip or a little lower (I'm 5'9"). I think it would work perfectly on someone much shorter or taller than me, also.

Now, I don't care for the color of the internal padding. It's such a silly thing to say or let affect my opinion, but it's true. It's sort of a burnt orange color... I don't much care for it. I know it's a small bag and would be great for traveling if you don't need more than the lens you have attached and maybe one extra, but it is a *really* snug fit with those lenses. I think this is purely an "I'll only be taking photos for a few hours" bag, and that's perfectly okay. In fact, I'm sure I'll be using this even after I get my new Lowepro Passport bag for whenever I go on-location to shoot. However, I still feel that the size should have been expanded just a bit so I don't feel like I might damage something by trying to fit my camera in the bag.

Over all, I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone who needs just an inexpensive bag to carry a small amount of equipment in. Just be sure you're aware of the size; it's not a bag meant for multiple lenses, really.

Thank you for the review!
I was wondering if the bag, with your D40 + 18-55mm lens would have room to fit a 70-300mm into it at the same time.

Cheers!

Bayan,
My bag will fit my camera with a 55-200 mm lens attached, with the 18-35 mm lens inside (in one of the side areas). It is VERY SNUG. I'm not sure how much larger the 70-300 mm lens is, but I'm pretty sure it's a bit bigger. I would say... if you can go to a store to make sure it will fit, do that. As it is, I'm sure it would be a tight fit, if it would fit.
