    I bought this bag for my Nikon D90 with 18-200mm lens and SB400 flash. I also carry a 72mm circular polarizer and memory cards.

    This bag has more than enough room for all of this and more. The bag is bigger than what it looks like on-line and probably bigger than what I need but everything fits without being cramped. The pack is so deep that the camera with the lens can fit easily "lens first". The bag also has 2 nice small pockets on the underside of the "lid".

    There is a lot of padding so I feel like my equipment is well protected.

    The only thing I don't like is the opening. It is anything but "Quick Access" as the description says. It has 2 zippers that meet in the middle of the oblong opening. Problem is, these 2 zippers are not connected so you have to unzip one side at a time or zip all the way around to open.

    I really wanted to like this bag, and it's probably great for riding bicycles and wearing it on your waist. But, Lowepro tends to make over-padded boxy designs and in this case, that forces the weight to sit farther out from your body. So when I wear it using the waist belt, it feels like I have a lunchbox that sticks out from my side and wags up and down when I walk.

    Attachment points for shoulder strap are placed weird (just next to the top loop). This causes the bag to feel like a lunchbox wagging side to side when I use shoulder strap only. Feels more snug if you use both waist and shoulder straps. But then, putting it on and taking it off is a hassle.

    I also felt that zipper tabs for the top compartment were hard to grasp/find. Overall, this bag does not move with me, does not stay close to the body.

    Otherwise, the materials are top quality, construction is solid, the AW raincover can't be beat, and a water bottle pocket plus bottom straps for tripods/umbrellas/etc are all great to have. I just wish that LP hadn't designed this bag to feel like a lunch box, so that it sould be more comfortable to move around with.

    I give 3 stars for features alone, but -2 stars for bad ergonomics.

      Comments about Inverse 100 AW Beltpack (Black):

      I was looking for a belt pack that would accomodate my Nikon D800 with a 28-300mm lens attached. This one does it. If worn at the rear, it is best to keep the shoulder strap attached which prevents the top of the bag from angling outward when full.

        Comments about Inverse 100 AW Beltpack (Arctic Blue with Black Trim):

        I was looking for a smaller backpack to carry a DSLR body and two lenses plus memory cards and few little extras. Couldn't find what I wanted in a backpack, so decided to try this. My equipment just fits. It's easy to tote around my waist and doesn't get in my way at assemblies or on hikes.

                  I like the size of this fanny pack. It works perfectly for using at a wedding to hold a few extra lenses. The only negative is that it is slightly difficult to swing around your waist from front to back. I also wish the front part was detachable. Other than that I love it and I am very happy with the size.

                        I was impressed with the construction and design of this product, but it was too cumbersome for me. I'm 5'3" with a small frame. The belt fit correctly, but the pack hit too high on my back and seemed to stick out behind me too far. I think it would be a great pack for anyone larger than me. I'm going to try a small Lowepro backpack instead.

                          This is a very versatile case. I use it to carry my Nikon D3000, 18-55mm kit lens and 35mm f/1.8G prime lens (excellent lens, by the way), plus my compact camcorder (Canon FS200, the size of a medium DSLR lens) and assorted gear (cleaning material, extra battery, etc). The weather cover brings me peace of mind when facing rain (although it prevents accessing the contents while on), and I usually wear both the shoulder strap and the belt to distribute the load, especially on long hikes. I generally leave it behind my back when I'm on the move, and pull it to the side or front when accessing the gear.

                          Granted, it's a bulky case (even though it's the smallest of the Inverse line, IIRC), but if you want to carry more than just one lens, I highly recommend it.

                              I used this bag for a good week during a cruise last week. I went on 3 excursions and took this little bag through it's paces. I didn't give it a 5 star bc my org intent was to use it as a "belt-pack". It "works" as a belt pack but it's not very comfortable. It's quite "top heavy" with my Canon 7D (w/o grip) with EF 24-105L attached and 430ex flash inside. It attaches well as a belt pack but sometimes I was worried that the buckle would just "pop off" (maybe I was just paranoid) so I also had the should strap across my body as backup... especially when I was zip lining 30 feet above the Belizian jungle! Just using it as a belt pack meant that I had to pull and tighten the straps pretty tight bc as I mentioned, the pack was pretty top heavy and if I didn't tighten it, the pack would sag at my waist. So be prepared to wear it very tightly... as a belt pack.

                              But with the shoulder strap attached, it helps distribute the weight. And with the belt straps tucked in and just using the shoulder strap, it works great as a small "shoulder bag"! The great thing is that with this little bag, you have the option of wearing it as both a belt-pack and/or a shoulder bag.

                              Another reason it's top heavy is the way it's built. Lowepro always makes quality products and this was no exception. The build is top notched and everything is padded. I have no worries if I were to drop the bag from 6 ft up and worry about anything inside. Oh don't forget the all weather cover which is a nice bonus but I haven't used it yet. The front pocket is very small but I could fit my phone and wallet as well as small things like an extra battery and a couple of memory cards. The 2 side mesh pockets were nice but forget about putting "water bottles" in them if you're wearing it as a belt pack and have to pull on the straps to make it tight around your waist.

                              Overall this is a well built bag. It's small and won't fit much, but the good thing about it is that it can be used as both a belt-pack and/or a shoulder bag.

                              This waistpack is exactly as you'd expect. The "all weather" aspect is a bonus. I'd recommend the 100 to the photographer with a mirrorless camera or a parralax device. Smaller DSLR like tha Canon Rebel would also work. Anything larger....I'd get a larger size.

                              Great quality, but too small

                              Before ordering I used Lowepro's own bagfinder function on their website. When I received the bag, I found it was just too small for my Canon 7D and an extra lens. Swapped it for the 200AW and it's excellent! The 100 is ideally for smaller DSLRs.

                                I am able to fit even more than I thought into this little pack. I am able to fit my 5D MK II, 135L, 35L and 50 1.4 (all without hoods) quite easily. In the front pouches I can keep an extra battery, keys, wallet. Water bottle holder on the side and tripod strap on the bottom makes this bag even better. I have a 200 roller and a Crumpler 7MDH and got this little bag for when I want to pack light. Construction is great like Lowepro bags always are. The fit is comfortable as well even fully loaded with the extra cinch straps, they keep the load from bouncing around. Only complaint is the green one isn't in stock anywhere so I settled on blue.

                                  I use this to carry additional lenses when I'm shooting outdoors......this bag is just the right size for comfort all day long. I especially appreciate the additional padding that keeps my equipment safer.

                                        I use this bag when I am shooting weddings-I love being able to grab the lens I need, switch and continue shooting. It is really convenient.
                                        I keep my camera body around me, lenses in the belt pack. I bought the smaller one (I am a petite woman), fairly unobtrusive, well built and doesn't slow me down- I love that.I checked out a lot of other gear bags, messenger bags etc...I need something hands free, something that will not get in the way when I'm running, climbing, bending etc... I also use it when I 'm hiking- for reasons listed above.
                                        The only thing I don't care for -the zipper flap. I think it should open toward your body, not out and to the side. If kind of flaps over to the left, just hanging there. Great price, very useful. Love it.

                                            Love this bag. I use this bag on all my trips around town or local day hikes. I also used it on a longer day hike in Utah this past Fall, worked great. Tripod straps underneath with raingear. I own a Canon Powershot 30SXIS and it fits in the center just fine. This bag would be small for a DSLR. I've owned Lowepro products for over ten years and this one works great.
