    I bought this bag for recent day trips. I was able to fit my T2i with 15-85 lens attached (hood reversed) in the center section with a kit lens and 35mm lens (stacked) on one side and filters and a slim wallet on the other side. The available pockets on the front, rear, and top of the bag were used for manuals, tissues, and cleaning supplies. One of the outside side pockets held a water bottle. It was a bit of squeeze to remove the camera so I found it better to carry the camera separately when touring rather than take the chance of missing a shot. Though I wished the bag had a little more space given the contents it already was somewhat bulky to carry around so I don't think I would upgrade to a larger size for day trips where one is constantly on the move. I would recommend this bag for those times when only limited equipment is required.

      Comments about Nova 170 AW Shoulder Bag (Black):

      I bought this bag just before a two week vacation. I carried a D610, 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm, plus cords and chargers with no problem. I think I can fit in a 28-70 mounted on the body in place of one of the lenses.

      Construction is solid, straps never let go. Overall I'm very pleased with this bag.

          I had other Lowepro bags in the past and had good experience with them. I got a free bag bundled with my D7100 but found it too bulky. This bag nicely carries my D7100 with one lens attached, one extra lens, and a flash.

                Comments about Nova 170 AW Shoulder Bag (Chestnut Brown with Black Trim):

                I received this as part of the Nikon D3200 kit. Frankly, my expectations for it were pretty low. Why would B&H throw a really nice bag in on top of what was already the best price I could find on the D3200 kit?

                Well, this bag exceeded my expectations. First, the construction quality appears to be excellent. No loose threads; smooth zipper operation; well padded; etc.
                The divider panels are adjustable, as on most decent bags. The interior holds my camera, 18-55 lens, 55-200 lens, battery charger, extra battery, USB cable, filter wallet. There's still room for my soon-to-be-purchased speedlight. I tuck a mini-tripod into the mesh outside pocket too.

                My favorite features of the bag are the SD card slots in the lid and the rain cover. The SD slots are easily accessible in the lid and hook & loop flaps keep debris out. There's also a nice, envelope-sized pocket in the lid. I keep a cleaning cloth in there and nothing else. That way I don't risk getting it dirty rooting around for my other gear.

                The rain cover is thoughtfully designed so that the bag's functionality isn't compromised when you put it on. It tucks neatly into a slot on the bottom of the front pocket.

                The only thing that would make the bag better in my opinion are some lashing points on the outside. I understand it's not designed to be a carry-all, but it would be nice to clip my water bottle onto it, for example.

                I was looking for a day bag to carry my Nikon D7000 with lense and an extra lense for day trips. This bag works for me just fine and the price was right.

                  The bag came with my Canon T4i and so I wasn't expecting much, but this bag turned out to be really great. It is just the right size, small enough to not be cumbersome and big enough to leave enough space for a second lens should you need it. This bag really does the job for anyone wanting to shoot single DSLR video stuff.

                      Comments about Nova 170 AW Shoulder Bag (Black):

                      I purchased this camera bag for my Nikon D5100 DSLR and lenses. I have owned a number of Lowepro camera bags in the past and was always very satisfied with their design and quality. For my DSLR I wanted something similar to the Lowepro Minimag P I had used years ago with my SLR kit. The Nova series comes close in design and is offered in a number of different sizes. I chose the 170 AW to be able to fit the camera with attached telephoto zoom (55-200 mm fits with room to spare) and two additional lenses (or one lens and one flash). The next smaller 160 size is built not as tall and would not fit the camera with telezoom lens attached. The next bigger size is much wider and would accomodate a pro-level DSLR which has a taller body than the D5100 or other consumer DSLR's. Check the inside dimensions you need!

                      I am very happy with the overall look of the bag and the built quality. I also appreciate the weather cover that comes in handy when you get surprised by a light rain. The shoulder strap has a nice wide padding.

                                I purchased this bag for my new Nikon D3100 and 2 lens kit. It holds the camera with standard lens and the 55-200 zoom lens perfectly, with plenty of room for other accessories such as filters, batteries and cables. I really like the snap buckle closure on the main compartment- much more secure than the typical velcro.

                                    I will use this bag to carry my dslr.
                                    The bag seems sturdy and secure.
                                    No complaints yet.

                                    I use for my Nikon 3200 with the 18-55 and the 55-200mm lenses.. I would rather it to have more horizontal space because I do not like my camera look down with the lens..
                                    The material is good and it has a good finish. I like the compartments for the memory, charger, and other accessories..
                                    Would buy it again, especially for the price.

                                      First time out with the camera and bag was a beautiful sunny day that had a surprise shower. Good thing for the rain shield wrap. Plenty of room for the charger, batteries, two lens and canon rebel. Pouches for sd cards, but would get plastic anti static cases for the sd cards.

                                          love all the little storage pocket and the bag is nicely padded yet not too bulky and is pretty light weight.

                                          I just bought my first DSLR. I use this for my Nikon D5100. Works great for the camera and the one extra lens that I currently have. There is room for another small lens.

                                              So far with the exception of my tripod everything fits into this bag. Lightweight and seems to cushion equipment. It would be fun if colorful, but if you don't want to draw attention to it, the inside could be a fun pattern.

                                                It holds my camera body and two lenses and still has room for more! The shoulder strap is comfortable and I like the combination of a zipper and clasp on the main compartment.
