I just backpacked all over Asia (Myanmar, Laos, Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Japan) for 3 months, and this was *the only bag I brought with me*. It contained:
- camera (Sony a7r ii)
- 3 lenses (25mm, 50mm, 90mm)
- 13" Macbook in the bladder sleeve
- electronics bag (foldable keyboard, mini tripod, etc)
- clothing bag for 3 months (mostly merino wool, and 2 pants/shorts from Outlier)
- toiletries bag
I put this bag through the test. Since my camera gear is expensive and the only thing valuable I own, I carried my bag with me literally every second for 3 months. I slept in hostels/bungalows/cottages/homestays, not hotels -- which furthered the need to always carry it.
I climbed up vertical limestone mountains (often resting it on the sharp rocks), hiked in rainforests, hiked up a 12,200 ft (3,700m) mountain/volcano filled w/ dirt and gravel all over, had it on the beach, and rode a motorbike for 11 days. I crashed my bike twice, causing the bag to fall off and roll all on the asphalt and dirt. Not only was the bag unscathed, but the contents (laptop, camera) were in perfect shape.
The bag never tore. There was only a slight pen-hole sized hole in the outer stuff-it pocket. This is nothing.
The shoulder straps were amongst the comfiest I've had. Sure, it's not the lightest bag (like the Arc'teryx waterproof bags), but that's because they are striking a balance with comfort (i.e, the Arc'teryx bags aren't as comfortable and have fewer frills).
Although it's a funky, new design, it works. It's perfect for me. I don't like having to open a pouch just to get to my camera bag within it. Having a designated camera section is what I need, and the fact that you can put tons of items on top of that section (and in front, since there is no floor), that's great. I can cram my hardshell jacket in that section, filling the space and providing a cushion for the items that remain on top.
I love the outer, typical top pocket, along w/ the stuff-it pocket. Having a water bottle side pocket is essential for me, too.
The only thing I found disappointing was the hip-belt. It gets in the way for me. At full load, I was carrying 9.4 kg (21 lbs), and I never felt the need to wear the hipbelt. It got in the way when entering toilet stalls with it, and having to set it down on public trains and buses, as there are often nasty liquids and trash on the ground... so anything that gets on the hipbelt might touch me as I walk, too. I ended up just cutting off the hipbelt with scissors.
I ran into 2 other people during my trip who had the same bag, and they shared the same sentiments of being excited for the bag :-)
Honestly, I can't even think of an improvement to make. Maybe lighter? But that comes at the price of being less comfortable, so I like the balance that they reached here.
What it did fit: Nikon D7000 with Sigma 17-50, and Tamron 70-200. My standard dayhike essentials, with room for that tiny ultralight sleeping bag and food (or just a standard lightweight warm weather bag).
Construction, materials, and design idea where solid! I mean so solid that I tried talking myself into keeping it (and my wife could tell I liked it and tried to help me decide to keep it). So much potential for this to be an amazing pack! The compression design worked the way it needs to. It has load lifters to help balance the weight. It has hip belt pockets that are handy as heck and add rigidity to help support the weight. It has a top lid with a good sized pocket. So much potential... Unless you want to drink water on your hikes...
The biggest fatal flaw with this pack, the thing that destroyed its potential I just praised, was the inability to actually carry water properly.
If your hike is short enough that you don't need water, then this daypack is for you! You won't be disappointed. For those of us that like to push a little farther to get those shots that are less accessible, we need to hydrate. They promote two possible water carrying solutions; the first being the stretch pocket on the side. For some this will suffice as I can fit a 20oz bottle, but that's about it. Even then, the pocket was stretched enough that I wonder how long the stretch material will last.
The other option, the one that makes me the saddest, is the normally appreciated water bladder pouch that will hold a 2 liter bladder. CAN I get a 2 liter bladder to fit? Yes. Is it actually designed to hold a water bladder period? Not even close. The water bladder pouch is only about 3/4"-1" thick at the shoulder, and tapers to about 1/4" at the lumbar. Anyone who uses a water bladder knows that bladders are typically at least 2" in thickness. Most companies that are known for bladders like Camelbak and Osprey have pouches that expand toward the inside of the pack. This makes sense, our backs want a structure from the pack that matches the curvature of our spine.
This pack has a rigid plastic board between the bladder and the pack's compartment, forcing the bladder to push the external backplate outwards... straight into your spine... not good. I have a hike planned in September where I hike 15 miles at 1 park on day 1, sleep in a cabin, then drive to a second park for another 15 miles before driving home. How fun do you think my spine would find that?
Lowepro, if you were to actually read this, get in touch with actual hikers to field test your next iteration of this pack. You are so close to having a pack that could dominate in the outdoor photography market, it just needs a few tweaks. I think if you fixed your bladder and side pocket issue, you could take this design and enlarge it to fit overnight and multi-day outings with a 300, 400, 500, etc options (if this is what the 300 has to offer, the 200 scares me). I would love to test this bag without the hard plastic board, and a 1/2" thicker bladder pouch.
To end on a positive, I do really enjoy the bold royal blue and yellow color scheme. Orange would be pretty sweet as well, just saying.
Top reviews from other countries
That’s wildly inaccurate, I could just about cram a Canon 5D Mk3 with a lens into the camera compartment and would risk damaging something. The camera compartment is sized for a tiny camera and lens, like an EOS 400D with an 18-55 lens. The only way you could get a full size DSLR into this bag would be to put it in the unpaded top compartment where your lunch and clothes should go.
The overall design is rather fussy, with lots of straps all over the place that left me wondering where things go.
The bottom of the to compartment is the top of the padded camera compartment, so there’s a gap at one side where things can get lost.
If you’re thinking of buying one, visit a shop and try it out first.
I’ll keep this to encourage me to reduce the amount of camera gear I take.
Update after using the rucksack on some walks
OK, I really can't recommend this bag at all.
The shoulder straps are quite thin, so if you adjust them, all of the weight is taken on the thin adjustment straps and it's hard going on the shoulders and very uncomfortable. Because the camera compartment is off to one side, the weight distribution is uneven and it slews the rucksack off to one side and on narrow hill/mountain paths that's not a good thing. In fact, it's very difficult to balance it and to undo the adjustment straps you have to take the rucksack off and you really don't want to keep doing that.
Great bag. Very useful and usable, most importantly. Slot for sd cards etc. Nice.
Edit: As a side note, you still get an incredibly sweaty back. The air gap is virtually non existent, but imagine it without. Better than not having any gap. Big sweat patches on back, particularly during heavy loads.
Nach langer Researche habe ich mich zum Kauf des "Photosport 200 AW II" entschlossen, da dieser vor allem für kleinere Kameras geeignet sein sollte.
Leider war mir persönlich dieser Rucksack viel zu klein, und ich habe Ihn umgehend zurückgeschickt. Das Kamerafach wäre zwar ausreichend gewesen, meine Sony Alpha 7ii + Sony 16-35 F4 + Sony 50 mm, hätten exakt rein gepasst, jedoch ist das Hauptfach vom Rucksack wirklich winzig (nur ca. 1/3 vom Rucksack). Wenn man eine kleine Flasche (0,5l), etwas Lebensmittel (2 Brote+Apfel) und eine leichte Jacke reinsteckt, dann ist der Rucksack schon voll.
Von der Verarbeitung hat mir der Rucksack aber recht gut gefallen, deshalb habe ich daraufhin die größere variante, den Photosport 300 AW II gekauft.
Im Nachhinein kann ich mit absoluter Gewissheit sagen, dass es die bessere Wahl war.
Der "Photosport 300 AW II" ist von den Ausenmaßen nur gering größer, jedoch hat deutlich mehr Platz.
Für meinen Gebrauch ist das Kamerafach bei leerem Rucksack etwas zu groß, das Equipment sitzt etwas lockerer, aber der Schutz wäre meiner Meinung nach trotzdem gegeben.
Wenn der Rucksack aber etwas beladen ist, dann ist das überhaupt kein Problem mehr.
Das Hauptfach ist deutlich größer: Eine große 1,5 l Flasche passt seitlich genau rein, für Nahrungsmittel und Wechselkleidung ist ausreichend Platz vorhanden.
Grundsätzlich bin ich vom Rucksack (Photosport 300 AW II) sehr zufrieden, zu einem guten Wanderrucksack von z.B. "Deuter" ist aber, sei es vom Tragekomfort, als auch von der Materialauswahl schon noch ein gewisser Unterschied feststellbar (deshalb nur 4 Sterne).
Angst dass der Rucksack zu groß ist (war bei mir der Fall) brauch man sich nicht zu machen, denn auch falls man nur sehr wenig Transportieren will, lässt sich der Rucksack problemlos kleiner machen.
First impressions are favourable and LowePro have put their considerable design experience onto this bag. In the past, their bags at this end of the scale have been somewhat clunky - more travel/tourist-orientated than hill/mountain walker, and to be frank, boring and a bit ugly. Like most camera bag designers, they forget that the photography may be the secondary purpose of the journey, and space for 'other' is essential. But with this bag they seem to have got the balance about right, and it looks good.
As for the equipment I carry, I try to travel light, with a single Olympus EM-5 MFT with the 12-40 Pro and compact 40-150, plus spare batteries, filters etc. I also carry safety kit including a small First Aid kit, McMurdo FastFind locator beacon plus extra layers according to season, and a small thermos, snacks etc, with walking poles strapped on. All this seems to fit comfortable in the various pockets, all I've added is a small Think Tank lens case on the waist belt so I don't have to unfasten the bag to change lens. I particularly like the easy access large front packet where I can stuff a waterproof. I've got bag packing down to a fine art, but other buyers might find this bag a bit on the small size and go for the 300. I'll update this when I've properly tested it in the field.
There are a lot of straps and it took a bit of sorting out to get the adjustments working for me but having waist and chest straps was really good and meant that the backpack fitted very comfortably. We tested the bag by walking in Cornwall during Storm Dennis and the rain cover came in handy but the bag stayed waterproof when I forgot to put the cover back on after lunch. My camera was easy to get to and more importantly felt secure and well positioned in the bag making it a comfortable carry. Overall I appreciated the focus on features found in my no photographic rucksacks for hiking and found it really roomy with plenty of space for kit without the worry or damage to my camera or fumbling around to get at it when I wanted. I really like this bag and look forward to using it often!!
