The pack is carried by a heavy-duty grab handle, an adjustable-torso harness system, with a Pack Jack tool that provides a fully customized and comfortable fit. Using the tool, the wearer can shorten or lengthen the distance between shoulders and hips. There is a 10-point adjustment system that allows customize fitting at the top of the pack, shoulders, torso, sternum, waist and lumbar areas. There is an adjustable, removable waistpack that includes thick, moisture wicking material and mesh-covered padding to provide added comfort and compression straps on the bottom.

    The most immediate use I get from my Pro Trekker 400 AW is being able to travel with my 500 F4 on extended trips and qualifies as carry-on airline travel. The bag qualifies as legal carry-on on international flights and can swallow up any super telephoto lens (I've only checked this for Canon, although there shouldn't be any major size differences between large manufacturers). The 500 F4 fits snugly inside with a pro camera attached. The 600 and 800 fit inside only without any camera attached.

    While Lowepro carefully dimensioned this backpack, it's very easy to get carried away and fill it up with gear. Mind you, it can swallow up a lot of it. Keep an eye on the weight as airline policies can spoil your most important trips. The bag accommodates way beyond any reasonable weight limit.

    It's clear that quality and comfort run high among Lowepro products and I'd like to be clear that this backpack is probably the best I've come across. It's sturdy, weather-proof, comfortable and functional. For the sake of this review however, read on as I remind some aspects that are less than perfect for this product. Bear in mind that, in spite of the following, I still went for it and I still highly recommend it. I strongly believe that there are no better alternatives on the market today.

    Cons:
    1. The laptop compartment is unsecured, once you open the backpack, the laptop can easily slide out. Not much of an issue for me, I almost never travel with one.

    2. It's good that there are 5 buckles which secure the front lid of the pack, this way the load on the main zipper is reduced, gear is safer. I find the buckles to be too small, however. They are very cumbersome to attach or open up while wearing gloves and should you come across some cold weather, fiddling with your frostbit fingertips on those small plastic buckles... be prepared for a little bit of hurting.

    3. The memory card slots are too small to fit the plastic case that CF cards come in. This is nothing new, as we've seen the same approach with the Lowepro "memory card wallets". Are we supposed to place our cards in there bare? Lowepro, what are you thinking?

    Trollers are comfortable in the airport, but can be a pain during an extended outdoor trek. Their stiffness and added weight are a problem in the outdoors.

    I love the pack-jack system, this allows for a perfect fit to each photographer, I like that it it is lightweight and has a modular design. The waist belt and top lid can both be removed for a more compact setup. The pocketed top lid turns into a waist pack. Various attachment points are placed all around the backpack. If desired, more that 8 carabiners can be attached to the bottom and sides for various items which you might find useful or necessary on your hike. I like the camel-back system, hydration hands-free is now available. Thumbs up!

    If you're looking for a light backpack which is comfortable, roomy, light, sturdy, rain-proof, if you're an extreme photographer who will more than once put his or her gear to the test, this bag is for you.

    Did I mention that the buckles on the bottom can be used to attach a small tent or a sleeping bag?

    A 4 out of 5 star rating is in order as the design of this backpack is well thought out and fills its role admirably, even in spite of the cons above.

    Highly recommended.

    I find this pack good and bad. Good for lots of heavy gear, but bad for fast and easy access. Especially, I hate the 'waterproof zipper' for the main compartment. It is slow and very stiff to open and close. The other zippers are great. Without the top removable compartment attached the waterproof zipper is worthless anyway, since their is a large opening in a huge pocket that runs the full length of the pack that would leak into the adjacent main compartment anyway. Better would be a regular zipper, and use the rain cover when necessary. The pack is way too heavy at over 7 lbs. Too complicated with so many straps to get caught or snagged on objects, and unclipped to get into the pockets and main compartment. Tripod 'foot' holder only on the center back, not on the sides. For me, attaching the tripod to the center back puts too much weight far away from the my spine, and slows opening the main compartent. Better on the sides, but there is no 'foot' holder on the sides, so the compression straps must be (very) tightened, but then unclipped to get into the main compartment.

    The pack is well made and attractive without screaming 'Expensive Photo Gear', which is important to me. It meets most airline requirements for carry on (at least I have had no problems yet), and just fits in the overhead bins. This is a good pack for transport from city to city, but I find it poor for carrying gear around when actually shooting. For that, I have several lighter, faster packs which work much better.

      Comments about Lowepro Pro Trekker 400 AW Backpack:

      I had a CompuRoverAW that was my daily companion for five years and bought the Pro Trekker 400 AW to replace it. It is a phenomenal backpack -thank God I did not listen to the critics who said it is too large, the zippers are too hard to use and it cannot accommodate a normal size laptop.

      It is a large backpack - but has easily fits in the overhead on all 4 flights I have taken since I got it. It is very well padded - which given my busy travel schedule is a necessity. It provides more than enough room for my needs - and I travel heavy!!!!

      The zippers are waterproof - so yes they are a bit stiffer than regular zippers - but unless you are frail... they are not hard to operate... give me a break!!!! And it absolutely positively will accommodate a 15.4" MacBook Pro, a 15" Lenovo laptop, and an iPad AT THE SAME TIME!!!!

      There are plenty of pockets and hiding places for all the various gadgets and things I need. If you are looking for a bullet proof backpack to carry AND protect your gear, you can't beat this one.

      Fantastic. Over engineered. Built like a tank and they thought of everything. Heavy in hand but not on the back. Wish it had more outside pockets instead of 3 tripod holders. Otherwise, best bag ever for storing almost everything.

      Comments about Lowepro Pro Trekker 400 AW Backpack:

      I have had this bag several years, but I'm just now writing a review. It has held up very well through moderate to heavy use. It easily holds 2 DSLR's, my 100-400 Canon zoom and several other lenses and accessories. I rarely use the tripod holder and never found it very comfortable to use as the tripod sits very high and catches on things as I hike, but I think that is the case in most all bags. It rides well on the back and the adjustment you can make depending on your torso length does help. It is very large and heavy and can probably hold more than many folks can hike with, so be aware of the empty weight and total full weight before you purchase. I am now at an age where I will still use it to carry my gear in the car, but need to get a smaller bag for hiking. It is true the weatherproof sizzpers take some muscle power to operate, but this bag has stayed dry for me even in fairly heavy rains when I did not have time to put the cover on. Also, I have never tried to fly with this bag -- it is supposed to be carry on size, but I am skeptical. At the very least, I suspect one woulld have to remove some strapping to make it slide by. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Lowepro Pro Trekker 400 AW Backpack:

      I use this bag for my Nikon D800e body, combined with several prime and zoom lenses.

      The thins that are great about this bag is that is extremely durable. It also is very easy to customize the fit, ensuring better posture as you are hiking out to remote shoots.

      The things that aren't so great about the bag is that the hydration bladder is not included in the bag kit, nor are specifications given regarding 3-party options. Not noticing the fine print in the ad led to scrambling around for a bladder that should have been included in an expensive photo bag.

      The zippers are also very still, therefore I can understand the statements of others regarding pull cords tearing off the bag. LowePro should do more to sonic weld ties together that can withstand the torsional force required for unzipping weatherproof zippers.

      It is hard to believe the majority of users have three tripods. Use of one tripod mounting point would make better sense, perhaps designing better general storage areas (e.g. additional spots for filters, lunch, sunscreen)

          Comments about Lowepro Pro Trekker 400 AW Backpack:

          I needed a backpack that would hold 2 DSLRs with long zoom lenses attached (Nikon D800 with the 28-300mm and the D300 with the 18-200mm), plus 2 SB800 flash units, one or two Quantum battery packs, a charger for each camera and the Quantum, a dozen AA batteries, the D800 manual, CD and SD cards, a few other necessary accoutrements, a paperback book (for waiting around) -- and be TSA carryon compatible. I also needed the backpack to be comfortable. The Lowepro 400 AW knocked it out of the ballpark! I gave it a test the other day and walked with it on my back, fully loaded, a half mile to my photo shoot. (I'm a woman, 5'4-1/2, 116 pounds.) Yes, it was difficult to lift; but once it was on my shoulders and the waist pack strapped around my middle, I completed the walk with no problem. The bag is marvelously engineered and every part is of high quality. This is one amazing camera bag/backpack. Delighted? You betcha!

                This may be the last Camera bag you may buy. The build quality is top notch. Zipper seams are water resistant, great padding for gear and on straps, great ergonomics, Camelback pouch and cutout, cool color and contrating orange detail, THis is used where you need to take alot of gear, fits nice in the overhead, and will hump alot of heavy gear. Strap lock across chest and hip straps help tremendously on hard hikes/climbs. Bag can also serve as you home storage, which is nice cause, it could probably hold most your gear in one place, Inside a safe at my place! If you need to run, all your gear is there. Has a padded lapto/Ipad area on padded cover. Haven't had it in the rain, but looks like it will keep everything dry plus it comes with it's own rain coat if you get in heavy downpours.
                The only down side is that it is big and your not going to be able to carry alot of other camping gear in or on this rig. You're still gonna need the Sherpa if you're campin and carrying alot og camera gear. It is a great set up for a day hike where you want to take alot of lenses, a 400mm 2.8 will fit,as will couple bodies and 6-7 lenses if need be. Again the biggest advantage is to grab ALL of you gear and leave, as in it doesn't stay in the car, hotel room, bleacher, ect.
                I also have Canon's Olive/Black Backpack, which is much small but can handle alot of lenses. They make for a good capacity combo. I also prefer backpacks as the leave my hands free and give me mobility in crowds and areas I might need to exit quickly! There were reviews about the slow waterproof zippers, they are slow, but that gives a sense of security that gear will not come out easily or by falling or by pickpockets.

                  Great backpack. It's bigger than I thought, but still meet FAA carry on requirements.

                    Comments about Lowepro Pro Trekker 400 AW Backpack:

                    Very good photo pack. I had been using the Lowepro Mini Trekker AW for years and was frustrated by the lack of genuine backpack support and room for hydration and extra layers. This pack ticks those boxes and also carries more equipment. In my case, Nikon D800 w/24-70 or 70-300 attached, Tamron 200-500, Sigma 180 macro, and room to spare for remote, right angle eyepiece, iPad and more.

                    The only negatives to speak of are the slots for SD cards in the main and side compartments. Though I do use both CF and SD cards, I would prefer free-form pockets to use as I please. The 4 SD card pockets in the main compartment could have been one larger pocket. They are useless for me. And all of the pockets in the main compartment are a bit tight—tighter than my old mini Trekker. I'd like a bit more room there.
                    Another minor issue is the separators in the main compartment. They need Velcro on their sides where they meet the bottom of the main compartment. That would allow for more precision in placement. I think this is needed in such a deep compartment.

                    For those who note that that there is no quick access to equipment while wearing the pack, some of that can be overcome by adding; 1) an OP/TECH Reporter/Backpack attachment to the shoulder webbing from which you can hang your camera, feeling no weight on your shoulders or neck, and 2) adding a Lowepro slip lock lens case to the belt. I have camera, primary and secondary lenses available without having to take the pack off.

                    Very roomy backpack. I went from a sling pack to this and everything fits. Even with every thing in it the back pack is a lot more comfortable to wear. The zipper is harder to get to and open it up with the top pack installed.

                        I ordered this pack to go to Africa on a documentary trip during the rainy season for two weeks. I was able to carry it on every flight without any issues. Even though all my gear weighed a ton, this pack made it as comfortable as possible with the extra padding and support. It held everything I needed and more including 2 camera bodies, 2 speedlights, multiple lenses (70-200 included), batteries, memory cards, hydration, monopod, etc. I was so happy with this pack and will continue to use it for years to come!

                          I have used this pack on two trips (1 week each) to carry some of my equipment with me (35 lbs.), it holds a lot! With all the adjustments and hydration-ready pocket (get a 70 oz. Camel-Back bladder to go with it), you will be able to enjoy your activity in comfort and still have whatever you need to keep shooting. Zippers started out tight, but have loosened up and are now fine. Memory card pockets: 2 on side hold CF cards with cases, 4 inside on back cover will not allow you to use the covers but the CF cards will fit. Note: This is not a quick access backpack, however, everything is well protected. No problems as a carry-on getting on a airplane. Overall - very high quality - it's a Lowepro!

                          A very good backpack for the nature photographer can bring all necessary equipment with him. It has a considerable size, I hope you do not have transport problems in plane as hand luggage. In my case I use a 300 2.8 VRII mounted to the camera and 24-70 and 105 vr loose, and I have enough room to carry all other accessories. I'm very happy with this item. The only thing is that the price is a bit high.
