    As we all know, we buy camera cases to carry, protect, transporting and for storing our camera equipment. This backpack camera case is heavy duty, well made and good looking. When I was looking to buy a camera case, I was interested if MY equipment would fit in this case. I hope the attached picture will show what equipment this case holds. Very pleased with product. And, yes, also great service from B&H!!

    Disappointed in this pack. Bought it to complement a Lowepro shoulder bag (which was also disappointing) and am not finding it up to the Lowepro quality and functionality I expected. I owned the predecessor to this pack for several years and loved it. Unfortunately, gave it away a few years ago. While I don't have it here to make a one-to-one comparison, I remember that pack as being much better made inside, more comfortable, and easier to use.This pack will get you through the airport, and maybe even a couple of hours around town if you travel light. But the shoulder strap padding is so thin as to be almost a joke, and I can't imagine taking the fully-loaded, all-day hikes I used to take with the old pack. If I remember right, the old pack also had at least a modicum of padding on the waist belt - this new one is just a plain strap. Inside, the Velcro is cheap and not near grippy enough. My Tamron 70-200mm broke through the divider holding it in place after wearing the pack around the house for only 20 minutes. Sure, the lens is heavy, but so are a lot of lenses. A good pack should hold darn near anything securely. As a result I'm concerned about the safety of my gear. Also, while there are strap loops on the bottom panel, it's the same panel that hides the rain cover and it's held closed by one small strip of Velcro. I strapped my MeFOTO Roadtrip tripod to the bottom, picked up the pack, and that bottom flap pulled right open. All there is to fall out is the rain cover - no big deal - but my trpiod flopped around like a fish out of water. Guess I could strap a jacket to the bottom without pulling it open but certainly nothing with any weight. Speaking of straps, the compression straps on the old pack crossed the side of the pack diagonally from top to bottom, giving much more assurance against anything falling out should a zipper fail. Finally, as has been pointed out elsewhere, there are two mesh side pockets, ostensibly for holding water bottles. Forget about it. The biggest thing I got in one was a 12-ounce pop can - and that took some oomph. Their best use is to strap your tripod to the side of the pack and stuff the legs (if they're thin enough) into one of those pockets. Actually feels more secure than the strap and fold-out holder arrangement on the back of the pack.I give the size of this pack three stars because you can admittedly stuff a bunch of gear in it (although you'll regret carrying it if you do) and the exterior material seems to be high quality. Also, there's room for an iPad in the front pocket. But I give it one star for comfort and interior quality. I'm keeping it because it's a good way to get a boatload of gear through an airport while leaving both hands free. But no way would I ever consider hiking with it, and I don't recommend it to anyone who plans to. My research into "real" hiking camera backpacks starts now...

    I've been looking for a bag to replace my ancient but beloved Lowepro mini trecker and after trying out quite a few different bags I finally find one that matched the minitrecker for size and ease of use

      I am a forester, birdwatcher, outdoorsman and amateur photographer. I generally keep this backpack camera bag in my truck with me. It handles my camera, extra lens', binoculars and field guides very well. It is just the right size for my gear with some room to spare in case I need it for other items. I like the rainproof cover as well just in case I get caught in a shower. It is just right for my use and seems to be a well made backpack.

      Comments about Pro Runner 300 AW Backpack (Black and Pine Green):

      Let me start out by saying I'm a pack'ophile. I LOVE backpacks, messenger bags, and the like. And not the cheap stuff. I've owned most every brand out there. This pack is a home run. The interior is well thought out and spacious. I've filled it with two camera bodies, a variety of lenses, and various related gear. The external tripod configuration works well even with a full size Gitzo. The rain cover is a clever thing indeed. It can't be forgotten or lost as it is attached to the pack, but yet, neatly hidden away.

      The only complaint I have is that the water bottle net is too small to accommodate any water bottle at all.

            My Lowpro Pro Runner Backback has met all my expectations and then some. The workmanship, size and utility value has served me very well and I would recommend this backback highly. This camera backback is large and the best feature is that it has a place on the back for a heavy tripod as opposed to the side which would put me off balance on a long hike.

                I'd been looking for a reliable backpack for a while. I saw that Ami Vitale, a photojournalist for National Geographic uses this bag and took that as an endorsement. What I like about the bag is it's large enough to hold what I need - a Nikon D7100 with grip, 18mm-140mm lens, 50mm lens, an extra camera body, speedlight, tablet and more. However it's not too large to be cumbersome.This is my second Lowepro bag and I'm very satisfied with their quality.

                    It carries my stuff comfortably. I did have to re order, the first guess by the sales person and me was off (couldn t bring all my stuff to the store). I would suggest getting a bigger backpack, extra room is always good. And you probably have more stuff than you thought.

                          Solid and reliable bag. Sits good on back and shoulders. Padding in shoulders is great. Tripod holder is excellent accessory to have. All in all, this bag fits on the back very well, good shape and size. Fits all the gear I need most of the time. Occasionally I take a 2nd bag of gear to a wedding. For landscape and portrait shoots, plenty of space for 2 bodies and 2-3 lenses, plus personal items, accessories such as triggers, speedlights, rain gear and more.

                          Love it! Have lots of room. I have a body and 4 lenses and still have room for more. Very comfortable to put on and off and carry. Very easy to get out my gear as well.

                          I bought this for a vacation to Hawai'i so I could lug my gear around and use it to also carry my tablet. Though it isn't specifically listed as a tablet pocket, the extra front zippered pocket is large enough to hold an 11.5" (diagonal) tablet in its case (case size 12.5" diagonal x 1" thick). The supplied rain hood proved its worth while hiking to Papakolea Beach to see the green sand. We got DUMPED on...completely soaked, but my K20D, lenses and accessories were completely dry for use once the rain stopped. My only complaint would really apply to ANY bag that uses velcro for the dividers. It starts to stick before getting it into the exact place I wanted it, so I had to place the divders several times before they were correct. I'm guessing that the "pressure fit" dividers would be easier to set up, but might not stay in place once loaded.

                          Definitely worth the price, there is more then enough space in this bag. The only thing that can be added or changed is maybe putting an extra pocket at the top of the bag for easy and quick accessibility to wallets or phones maybe. Other then that it is amazing.
