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.

Size: 40 LColor: Yellow Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My first thought on unboxing this pack was that it's just about the yellowist thing I've ever seen. I was immediately reminded of the heavy rainslickers we wore as kids. I could get used to the color. But the heaviness of the material raised concerns which proved to be true.

The pack is quite waterproof. It's a giant version of the dry-bag you'd toss into your kayak. It rolls down at the top and is cinched by straps--just like a drybag. Your camera (room for camera with one large and one small lens) goes into an additional dry case that slips into the pack. If waterproof is your primary concern, then go no farther. But how is it as a backpack? Not very good.

I loaded the pack up with a Canon 7D and a 200mm zoom--one of the kits I frequently hike with. I discovered that getting the camera out quickly for a one-time shot was an involved process. This can be a problem with any camera pack, but it was enough of a bother that many shots would simply go untaken. There are loops on the back that look like they'd hold a tripod. But they're just fabric loops and aren't adjustable. Even if you could get a tripod in, you couldn't secure it. And what about water? Most packs have a mesh container or some way to carry a bladder or Nalgene bottle. Not so here: if you want to take something, it goes INSIDE the pack. There are plenty of clips where you could attach things via carabiners, but those would exacerbate the already problematic balance of the pack.

About balance...it's bad. The shapeless nature of the pack means that it's hard to keep weight close to the body. The whole affair sags. On my test hike, I spent most of my time holding on to the shoulder straps in an effort to pull the pack forward.

Size: 40 LColor: Yellow Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.
