    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.

        I use it for my Sony a7ii, 70-200 lens, 24-70 lens, flash, remote, cards. It is great for local quickies, and sturdy. I purchased the smaller version first but returned it because it was too small. This one is perfect!

        Excellent size when traveling light

          Comments about Nova 170 AW Shoulder Bag (Black):

          When I ordered my Nikon D750, B&H threw in a freebie bag that did not fit my needs (or the camera) very well, so I found the Lowepro Nova 170 and it is exactly what I needed/hoped for.
          For traveling I take a D750 with the Nikkor 28-300 attached, a SB-800 flash and one fast prime lens (28mm, 50mm, etc.). All this fits very comfortably into this bag (not too tight and not too loose).
          Features: There is a zipper for the main compartment and a flap with a quick release buckle. The flap covers the main compartment so well that unless it's dusty or rainy, you can leave the zipper unzipped which makes access to the camera a lot faster. Speaking about rain, there is a integrated rain cover. I don't know how effective it is, but it is definitely a nice touch. Overall, the materials and the quality of the bag seem very good, much nicer than what the price might lead one to believe. Highly recommended!

            Wanted a bag that would safely and comfortably carry my camera, zoom lens, and a spare battery and memory card without being to bulky. I went to many local stores and checked many different bags, this one fit the bill, except it was twenty dollars more at my local store, B&H seems to beat everyone's price, great service too!

                    I recently bought a new Canon Rebel T5i and it came with a kit that included a case from a vendor on @. I didn't feel like the bag that was included was substantial enough to protect my $ camera. I bought this case to feel a little more secure about hauling my camera and two lenses around with me. I love the size weight and the level of padding and protection for my camera as well. Although I haven't used it yet, I love the rain fly that is attached to the bag just incase I encounter some weather on my way.

                    I was looking for a bag to use for local hiking and traveling without taking a ton of gear with me. This bag fits the bill in that I can have my Nikon D300 with attached 18-200 lens and my 70-300 lens with various filters, memory cards, and batteries with me. This would not work for a 70-200 2.8 zoom or a camera with a battery grip. If you are looking for a well constructed, nicely padded small light weight travel bag, I would recommend you check this one out. The only small negative I have about this bag is that it does not have any tripod straps but then again it is a small bag.

                      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.

                                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.

                                        Perfect for no professional photographers as myself. Fits my DSLR camera with 18-140 lenses attached and one 50 mm extra lenses. There still is space for another small camera or another lenses. Fits all SD cards, extra battery, filters, lenses cleaning tissues, etc.
