I need to be able to carry all of this on my back, and get to it in a short period of time. That's not a ton of gear, but the combination of pro body and 100-400 lens eliminated a *lot* of bags. After a fair bit of research and dimension analysis, it came down to the Lowepro Pro Tactic 350AW or 450AW, and the Manfrotto MB PL-3N1-35 backpacks. Thanks to Amazon's Prime service, comparing these bags was relatively painless and I feel like I owe them a comparison review as a result. Here's what I found:
I loved the Manfrotto bag on paper. The bag is attractive. The sling concept has worked great for me in the past, so that functionality was appealing. Also, not all of my kit is cameras/lenses, so I liked its spacious upper compartment; and all those extra pockets are really nice. But, holding the loaded bag made me change my mind. The 1DMkIV/100-400 fit great and came out of the side pocket without any trouble; and the extra padding in the main compartment is very nice; but it's really too big of a bag to comfortably function as a sling. Worst of all, the straps aren't really up to the task - they're woefully underdesigned for a bag of this size. I really can't imagine toting this thing around fully loaded at a football game. A lot of reviews blast the numerous buckles on this bag, but I found them to be very well designed - they enable the bag to be a left- or right-sling bag without dumping your gear out the other side or allowing the zippers to open too far. So I'm not sure what folks are griping about there. Bottom line, I wanted to love this bag but just couldn't once I tried it.
On to the Pro Tactic AW bags... the build on these bags is amazing - clearly a notch above the Manfrotto bag. Zippers/pulls are solid; shoulder straps are more beefy; padding against your back is more serious - more like something you'd buy at REI for multi-day backpacking. And they have an armored feel to them - the body of the bag is somewhat rigid, and the top cap is even more rigid. The stitching, zippers, materials are all top-notch. The external pockets are the one knock against these bags - they are tiny.
Comparing the 350/450 - the 350 is nice and compact, and holds *most* of my kit without trouble. But, it is a major effort to get the 1D Mark IV out of the top opening, leaving me with the option of opening the back cover to extract the camera - both are just enough of a hassle that I can't see myself enjoying this bag on the sidelines. It gets 5-stars for build quality, but it just doesn't work for my application (not a fault of the bag). The 450, on the other hand, is a tad bigger than I'd like - not as big as the Manfrotto, but just big enough that I wish it was a little smaller. On the plus side, the 1D Mark IV comes out of the top compartment cleanly, and the other gear is not squished into the bag. And it's comfortable to wear with everything loaded.
All things considered, the Pro Tactic 450AW is the best choice for me.
1st the Pros:
*Very well built. Quality zippers, feels strong and keeps shape to protect gear, strong straps, buckles etc. As with my other Lowepro bags, I think this will last for years and years.
*Comfortable and hangs well even with a lot of weight in the bag. The straps are thick and it doesnt have the awkward hang where the top of the bag leans off your back. This bag stays firmly against your back. The waist straps do their job of taking some of the weight off your shoulders and back.
*MOLLET WEBBING!! - This is my favorite part of the bag. Every camera bag should have this on at least part of the bag. The webbing allows you to customize the bag with whatever attachments you may need. It comes with a water bottle attachment, a tripod pocket attachment for a tripod leg to hook in to (also has high quality straps tobsecure tripod), and a pouch to use as an exterior pocket which Im keep lenspens, cloths, cleaner, and a blower in at the moment. The other great thing about the webbing as there are thousands of other mollet attachments available as its a standard in military and other tactical bags. I plan on getting a water bladder and mobile phone pocket attachment soon. There are other quick straps that allow easy attachments of tools which im using for a multi tool, and knife, but the options that the webbing opens up truly are endless. In addition, I also have a protactic messenger bag and I can share attachments between both bags depending on what my needs are at that time.
*the dividers are strong with a good design and strong velcro - heh, almost too strong.
*There is a lot of total space in the bag which includes an area for a laptop, several lenses and bodies. The size of the interior is what it is though and I dont think should be considered as a either positive or negative.
Now for the cons:
*the exterior pockets that are part of the bag are VERY small. They are useful but are very limited. However, the mollet attachments compensate for this. I still think one permanent exterior pocket that can fit batteries, triggers, keys, cleaning supplies etc would have made more sense as pretty much everyome needs quick access to some things. Not a big deal though.
*This is the only real con, but it is frustrating. The divider shapes and specific dividers make it difficult to customize for some set ups. There is a divider that crosses the width of the bag and is needed. However, if you have a large telephoto like my 150-600, that one divider has to be placed low in the bag. This blocks access from the side pockets and it limits the ways the dividers can be customized. With thats said, with some creativity, I did figure out a way to pack my 150-600 attached to my 6dii, a 70-200 2.8, a 28-75 and an extra body. The dividers were not set in ways the bag was made for though. I of course also had extra batteries, cards, filters etc in the bag. For those that dont have a large telephoto or dont want tgis bag for that, you can have a 70-200 2.8 attached with side access, another body with a wide angle or 24-70 attached and a few other lenses depending on their size.
In summary, I bought this bag to carry on outdoor kit including a Tamron 150-600 lens. The divider options could be better with the space that is there for that kit but Ive made it work. For other kits not including a large telephoto, I think most people would be very happy with this bag. For cost conscious consumers that also want a durable, customizable, high quality bag that is both good for hikes in the woods, or for city photography...and allows you to carry a lot of gear, this may very well be the best option there is for some people.
