My sole reason that I ordered this bag was to be able to accommodate my new Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G lens along with my standard 18-105 f3.5 and my 70-300 f3.5-5.6 zoom lens. Most of the bags that I viewed online showed a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens fitting the bag if it was attached to the camera. WELL, HOW DUMB IS THAT!! Who would want to have to change lenses back to a 70-200 just so you could get your equipment back in the bag. Are none of the bag designers at Lowepro photographers??
I was able to fit all my equipment in the bag by removing one of the Velcro dividers but the lens is longer than will fit the compartment without threatening to pop another Velcro divider loose. It would have been nice if the Velcro side panels extended wide enough so that you could put the dividers anywhere you wanted.
The bag has plenty of space for accessories.
Nice computer compartment
Awkward access to camera compartment
Camera compartment size too small to hold larger lenses
Not enough Velcro side panels so that compartments can be easily modified.
No place to attach a tripod or monopod
Even though I am not satisfied, I will keep this bag. Even the Lowepro Protactic bags don't get good reviews on interior compartment design and they cost over $200.
- Large compartment on top with pockets. Easy to store carry on items for your trip and also during the day.
- Side pocket for your laptop
- Waist buckle for extra support
- Underneath storage for your camera was really supportive. My camera and gear felt protected.
- When I pulled it out of the box, it was heavier than I expected.
- The shoulder pads don't offer a lot of support when carrying. We did one day of hiking and it was uncomfortable for the short hike that we went on. Even while wearing the waits strap
- The compartment on top was really nice, but it was limited on what you could pack. Everything had to be a small size. For the plane ride I could only carry a book, my wallet, phone and a very few personal items.
- By the end of the day after wearing the bag and the waist strap my back would hurt. I even downsized the bag to carry just the bare minimum while walking around and it was still uncomfortable for me.
For years I have owned the Lowepro Passport Sling and have loved it, I can carry that bag around all day and not have any problems. When we decided to go on this trip I needed a bag that I could carry extra gear in. However, I think that because the bag is bottom heavy I wasn't expecting it to take such a toll. We would be out all day and if you are not used to carrying around a pack that is designed that way that could be hard to get used to. I've carried packs for hiking on numerous occasions and haven't had any issues, but after wearing this bag for one afternoon my shoulders were aching by the end of the day.
If you buy this bag I would suggest before going on a trip you pack it up and carry it around for a little while to see if you like how it sits.
Back/vertical compartment: held a 15" macbook pro and a folder with all itineraries in it. A slightly larger laptop would fit, maybe a 17" without a case. My 15 has an "incase" sleeve that is 1" longer than the mac and fits easily. Very easy in and out for airport security.
Lower/camera compartment: this held a Nikon D7000 with attached 80-400mm Nikkor zoom. It was just long enough with maybe 1" to spare. The camera loads crossways so can be retrieved with the bag on your back, though it's a bit awkward (especially if you've had both of your rotator cuffs rebuilt...) I had to remove one velcro padded divider to accommodate this lens combo, which left four compartments still. These held: 1)105mm standard lens; 2)chargers and batteries for the Nikon and travel adapter plugs; 3)chargers and cables for the mac and gopro (dual battery charger and batteries); 4) go pro hero 4 with floating handle. This should give you a good idea on how much fits in the lower compartment. This lower compartment also has two small velcro pockets on the tip of its flap that can easily hold 2-3 memory cards each.
Next there is an exterior flap pocket on the outside of the camera compartment; it holds things like cards, pens, body caps, cleaning cloths, etc.
There is a flap with two buckles that covers the zippers over the camera pocket (and the exterior flap pocket), making accidental opening (or intentional opening for theft) much more difficult.
The top compartment (directly over the camera compartment) zips open from side to side; the zippers can be looped through each other to help prevent theft, but there is no cover over them. I put them all the way to one side and linked through each other twice to slow things down a bit. This compartment is fairly open, but with a couple of small flapped compartments on its back wall that held things like Emergen-C, pens, tickets, etc. There is also a removable zippered bag that's like a large pencil case--this held toothbrush/paste, antacid, advil, etc. with lots of room to spare. The main upper compartment had my kindle, a journal the size of a kindle, travel wallet with backup passport card/currency/credit card, several prescription medications and epic-pens, and Bose 25 headphones in their case. Also had some small souvenirs on the way home.
The mesh pocket on the side is too short for most water bottles, but works well for the same if you simply loop the elastic cord at the top of the pocket over the top of the water bottle.
In short, this bag swallows an enormous amount of stuff. Fully loaded, it was heavy (10kg/22lb) but otherwise I'd have had a separate camera bag and carry on to deal with, plus the small duffels required for light air transfer in Africa. It was a life saver and I'm disappointed I'm not still using it every day! The harness was very comfortable; you do get sweaty but what backpack doesn't. I never used the waist belt but that would have added another level of comfort also.
