    This bag is very well constructed out of quality materials. Whatever you put in this bag, you can bet that it is well protected, both from getting banged around, and from the elements.

    It currently carries my camera with an 18-105mm lens attached, a 70-300mm lens, a flash unit, slave cable for the flash, and several other smaller items. The pockets/pouches, etc are well placed and once fully loaded, I can get to anything in it quickly and easily.

    The only thing I would like changed on it would be the addition of velcro straps for the attachment of a monopod, but that's just me.

    To sum it up: I did a LOT of research on this site before settling on this bag, and I am glad I did. I really cannot think of a single thing I dislike about it.

    I returned this bag and bought a messenger style bag. Turns out I wanted something that looked less like a camera bag, but I didn't know it yet when I ordered this bag.

    I added a battery grip to my D90, so my small top loader was now insufficient. The 180 seemed big enough to fit a grip'd DSLR as opposed to many others which do not.

    The bag actually did a poor job of fitting it after all. First, the dividers it comes with do not logically arrange to fit this configuration. With the grip off, it seemed like it would be OK, but with it on the only sensible way to store it was with no lens attached, which seemed completely pointless to me for an "on the go" bag.

    Second, once I managed to arrange the dividers in an awkward fashion that finally "held" my D90, grip and 18-200 VR, it left very little space for anything else. I crammed my 35mm 1.8 and the charger in, and that was it. My Gorillapod incidentally did not fit at all.

    Other than the space issue (which was a big issue), the bag just felt too clunky to carry around. I could see this bag being suited for someone who leaves their cam bag in their trunk and only takes the camera out to play. But for anyone traveling, or otherwise spending a lot of time with their bag on their person, I would think this would just get in the way.

    On the plus side, the bag is made of very nice materials, solid zippers and stiff padding. The strap has metal clasps and seemed comfy enough. The outer pocket held a few odds and ends OK. I found the rain cover very well designed and useful, though again I don't see this as a "field" bag. Also, the cover when stowed in the outer pocket's flap, adds bulk to that area.

      Comments about Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag (Black):

      The bag is kind of small to fit in my camera with the zoom lens attached, plus another small prime lens and a speed light unit, plus a few filters.

      The zipper location and the flap over it made the camera not easily accessible from the bag. It is not easy for carry on your shoulder and draw to shoot purpose. Nevertheless, it is a compact bag to carry the essential gears to travel or to go to the location for shooting on event when you are just the guest to the event, instead of the main photographer.

        Fits my Panasonic Lumix G6 with 14-140 mm lens on the camera, flash, 18-135mm & charger. Lots of places for small accessories (SD cards, cords, etc.). I had the smaller camera bag, but I am happier with this model. The internal dividers easy to rearrange. Lots of zipper pockets. Best of all, it is not bulky or heavy.

          Comments about Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag (Black):

          This mid-sized bag is a bit larger that my faithful Nova 1, which is great for carrying my D-90 with one extra lens. The question was always: which lens should I take - wide or tele?

          While the Nova 180 AW does not seem significantly larger outside, it is able to carry my Nikon D90 with 18-200 lens attached, plus my 12-24, and 55-300 telephoto. There is also room for lens hoods and filters in the corners of the bag, and lens cleaning supplies and business cards in the pockets. The carry handle is very comfortable for my arthritic hands, and the shoulder strap can be removed and tucked inside. The interior partitions can be easily configured to match your equipment. The integral rain cover will be very useful here in Seattle.

          I think this is a great bag that is already expanding my horizons, because now I have all my favorite lenses at my fingertips at all times. Highly recommended!

              I have several camera bags: from a small belt size that holds a Nikon P330 to an All Weather Slingshot bag that accommodates a Canon 5DMkII and telephoto lens plus various accoutrements. But this Nova 180 AW is a winner simply because it carries essentials for a trip or vacation where I want to be trimmed down and not encumbered on a plane or where I am constantly moving from one fantastic scene to another, trying to squeeze a full day into one hour of shooting. This bag is a winner!! Lowpro did not build in any negatives or shortcomings into this bag. If this Nova 180 AW was a computer, Steve Jobs would have been proud of it---minimalist and does what it says it does.

                  This camera bag is perfect my my camera and three lenses. I have plenty of extra room. I had the smaller camera bag for over ten years and I am even happier with this model. I love all the pockets! And the top zips so I don't have to worry about my equipment getting wet if I am caught in the rain. There is also a protective cover!

                        The most important thing in buying a bag is that it is the right size for your needs. Lowe Pro has always been top quality, so that was not an issue in my choice. The bag that came with my new Sony A58 was way too small. The Nova 180 holds camera with both lenses, an extra battery and SD cards, and plenty of room for the flash, which is my next purchase. This bag even holds two water bottles in mesh pockets. Perfect for travel.

It is exactly the right size - not too big, has lots of movable storage for my camera and an extra lens and lots of zipper pockets for accessories. I would recommend this for anyone.

                              Bought it for my Nikon D7000, after i bought more lenses i need to upgrade my back to fit all in it. After reaserch i found this one, and suprisely i can fit all my equipment in to it.Nikon D7000 body with attached 18-105mm lenses, then Nikkon 50mm 1.8 and Rokinon 14mm, and i have still plenty of space for my flash SB-700 with one apartement left for flash accesories. Weight is pretty good, i used it for transporting my stuff during flyights with me on board, works good, but for shooting days i uses still my old bag if i need just one spare lenses.A lot of space for filters, cables, batterys.Deff worth the money!

                                I just purchased a new Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR Camera with 18-55mm and 75-300mm Lens Kit from B&H and found the Lowepro Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag to be a perfect size and style of camera bag for my equipment. Lowepro offers highly durable camera bags. I love the self-enclosed raingear, easy to pull out, quick to cover the bag and keep camer and lenses dry in wet weather which we get pleny of on the north Oregon Coast.

                                  The product is the usual Lowepro standard, offering a good level of protection to valuable gear, and customisable with the removable internal velcro'd tabs. The overlap lid provides extra space for gear. Only one quibble: There is a zippered pocket at the back, with a second band of fabric covering the same area as the pocket. I did not realise that this was just a band since it is quite deep and appeared to be a second external pocket, but an unzipped one for easy access. This seemed clever, until my new sunglasses disappeared during the course of my shoot and I realised my mistake--I had put them into the band and they had dropped out the bottom, unnoticed. I'm not really sure what possible use the band has, but I would suggest that it should be eliminated and replaced with un unzipped exterior pocket. At least now I know.

                                    The main compartment can fit a DSLR with a fairly good size lens attached plus a large telephoto zoom, one full sized flash and a few small things. It is tall enough for a large f/2.8 zoom lens placed vertically. The accessory pockets underneath the entire top and in the front flap and in the bag's front are very smart and useful. The better bag for me professionally is the Nova 190 which is the same internal hight but a couple inches longer horizontally. Lowepro makes extremely good quality camera bags. Their Nova bags are lightweight, made of good materials and very durable. The top flaps have sides which keep the rain out. I find that their built-in shoulder pads don't grip my shoulder well enough while I'm working so I replace the whole strap.

                                    I mainly use backpacks. I have the Lowepro Pro Runner, Flipside 300 and 400 but I wanted a bag that would make it easy to carry just a few pieces of gear for shoots where I know I won't use long lenses. I hesitated between this one and a few smaller shoulder bags from Lowepro. I wanted to carry at least a Nikon body with 17-55mm lens attached, an extra short prime and a dedicated flash. The other cheaper Lowepro shoulder bags would allow me to fit the extra lens but not the flash and definitely not 2 extra lenses. It's well made like all Lowepro's and there's room for accessories all over. It's a litlle deeper than I would like but that's the price to pay to have decent internal space. Also, the shoulder strap has decent padding and some alternatives didn't. Long term comfort is of prime importance to me. The AW cover is a bonus and because I've used it on my backpacks a few times, I know it can come in handy in foul weather.

                                      I liike Lowepro's Nova series because they have lots of pockets and do a good job protecting gear. My only complaint is that many of them don't have enough padded dividers for those of us who use smaller cameras with many lenses. The 180 AW is a perfect balance between reasonably small size and lots of features.

                                        This is the third one of this bag in our family. The size is comfortable and holds what is needed: extra lens(es), spare battery and charger, filters, small notebook, cleaning supplies. The interior compartment dividers velcro into place and can be rearranged to fit other lenses. The rain hood is a plus.

                                          Comments about Nova 180 AW Shoulder Bag (Black):

                                          I own two Nova 4 AWs, the newest for my Nikon D300, the oldest a utility bag and now a Nova 180 AW for my Nikon D-7000...a smaller bag for a smaller camera. Also have an assortment of Lowepro pouches and small cases for phones, point and shoots, field recorders, light meters and other little stuff. The brand meets all my requirements, price, quality, utility and durability. Never had to use the AW feature but once, but it worked and its great to know its there.
