first, the exterior: they used a rugged, weather resistant material for the outer shell that's like tarpaulin but with a softer feel. the base is woven nylon outside a formed, foam shell so the bag stands on its own. all zips are weather resistant, external pockets are pleated and elasticated for expansion, and all tie downs are seatbelt nylon with steel G-hooks. the shoulder straps are rigidly formed and efficiently padded, helping keep the pack higher on your back and not allowing it to sag into your lower back. handles are everywhere: top and both sides, with a strip recessed into the formed foam back for slipping onto the handle of your wheeled carry-on. the side access flaps open in the opposite direction of Peak Design's because they designed their's backwards (try finding something in the internal flap pockets). finally, no hidden straps tucked about: all the straps you need are in place and can be removed if you don't need them. they're strong and hard wearing.
the interior: Peak Design claims their backpack is an "everyday backpack" but you have to destroy your carefully thought out, and annoyingly placed, shelving to use it as an "everyday backpack," then realign it all when you want to use it for photography again. Lowepro uses 2 boards to create a collapsable shelving system that slides out when you don't need it, no reconfiguration required. collapse it flat to pull it out of the top, reverse to return it. an accessory bag is also included for the small items: in my case, i use it to carry my cleaning kit and wireless shutter remote. there's room for a 15" laptop and a 13" tablet; in my case, it's a 2016 15" macbook pro and 10.5" ipad pro and both fit without struggles in well padded, individual pockets. the top storage area, while not expandable like Peak Design, is capable of holding a lot more than you'd expect for a bag this size, with total loadout comparing favorably to my Lowepro Flipside Trek 450. that speaks to the efficiency in their design.
looks are subjective, but Lowepro did what Peak Design took years to do: offer it in black. actually, it' the only color you can have. Lowepro also chose a more conventional backpack look that doesn't call attention to itself. with the Peak Design, you know what it is and it stands out in a crowd, looking like an origami turtle: not what you want while carrying thousands of dollars in gear.
the only problem with the Lowepro is the shelving. they use a more conventional arrangement of flexible dividers attached with velcro. this is where the Peak Design is superior, IMO, with their convertible shelves with folding dividers. as you can see in my photos, the solution was to buy the shelves from Peak Design and put them into the Lowepro Freeline. the 30L dividers are a perfect fit inside the Freeline, giving you more configuration options and making the space more efficient, especially when reconfiguring to accommodate wildly different lens sizes, like a 50mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm after carrying 4 different primes the day before.
I’ve had this bag for a week and 2 zipper ties have gone missing. Also the back of the bag that touches your back gets quite hot and does not breathe well, it also scuffs very easily, for those things I’m knocking a star because the bag is too expensive to already have ties missing. I took it to Mexico for a 5 day music festival run and it faired well in the rain/drizzle. The side access on planes was a dream and fits very easily under the seat. I’ll be hanging onto it a while longer.
I’ve got to say that it is so difficult to actually find a bag that fits your needs. There are hundreds of options, and each bag serves a different purpose based on the user. I just received this bag and I’ll admit, getting a configuration together took some thought and a little time. I like the idea of not exposing all of my gear in one area and the two-side access was a definite plus. It’s important to note that the zipper for the side compartments are against your body not on the opposite side as the PD bag has them configured - I think the Freeline for this reason is a more secure bag. The material seems rugged but looks as though it scuffs easily (I’m not sure how it will wear over time). The zippers seem to be high quality.
Overall the bag is a very ideal size. It is not huge and it is not tiny which makes it versatile for walking around to traveling/fitting important items. It is however, not very wide so you have to make use of the space wisely. I have a Sony a6500 in a small rig cage and it takes up quite a bit of room on the side.
I’m going to be traveling quite a bit so I will update one I’ve had it for a few months.
In the bottom I have the organizer with my Sony Charger, Apple MBP Charger, cable release, tripod foot for the 100-400mm. Above that is the Sony a7RIII with a 24-105G with hood attached, then a padded insert with a Sony RX100 on the other side. Above that is the Sony 100-400G OSS with hood reversed and foot removed. On the top is a Sony 16-35mm G with lens hood reversed, the rain hood for padding, and a Sony RX10IV with lens hood reversed - ready for quick access. The back sleeve also hold my 15" Apple MacBook Pro. On the outside side pocket, there's a RRS tabletop tripod and a Joby Gorilla Pod. I have my whole kit all together in one comfortable backpack, ready to grab and go. It's perfect!!
