    I was thinking about buying the Lowepro photo sport 200 AW, but after reading all the comments that it could not accommodate an f2.8 70-200 attached to the camera. When this one came out, I thought I'd check it out. A few comments.

    Camera compartment
    The lower camera compartment can hold my Canon 5D mk3 with an f2.8 70-200 attached. However, it is the only thing that it could hold. If you find a unique way of putting something additional to the camera/big lens combo in the camera compartment, please post it here. I was also able to get to the camera relatively quickly. The gymnastics took a bit of practice - undo sternum strap, undo belt strap, pull right shoulder strap off and let it articulate around left shoulder, open compartment and remove camera. The camera is accessible, but it's not "quick draw" by any stretch. The camera compartment is also removable.

    Upper compartment
    The upper compartment sits on top of the camera compartment. When you first open the upper compartment, you see a small elasticized pocket. You think "great, I can put small stuff here, like an extra battery or memory cards." You can do this, but be aware that the pocket compartment goes all the way past the camera compartment to the bottom of the pack. So yeah, your filters/cards you're going to have to dig for as they will settle. As a plus though, you can put a lot of stuff in the top compartment. For giggles, I put two extra lenses, 2 speedlights, a precip jacket and a light fleece and got it all in there. As I had it loaded up, I took it on the trail.

    Ergonomics
    The pack feels good and feels like a high grade daypack. Adjustable sternum strap, good padding on the shoulders and hip belt was able to take most of the weight comfortably. Good back plate. I walked for about 2 hours with it and it felt fine. Trampoline mesh back to keep you cooler. There are small pockets on the hip belt that appear useful, but I've got to experiment to what that best use is. Bottom straps will take a tripod. Top zippered compartment with a key snap. I ended up using the top zippered compartment for the smaller stuff (card wallet, filters) as the elastic pocket in the top compartment didn't work out for me. It also has a rain cover.

    Hydration
    I do not have a hydration bladder yet (the pack does not come with one). So I just used the outside pocket for a water bottle which worked fine for me. If you want to use a hydration bladder, there is a place for routing the tube through the pack. Just be aware that the zipper for the bladder is inside the top main compartment. In the 200AW, it is a separate compartment.

    In conclusion, the bag is well made (although mine was missing 2 zipper pulls), answers the need to be able to carry a full frame with a 200mm zoom and 1-2 other lenses. It's strength is mobility, so it's not your wedding camera bag. I'm taking this bag on a photo architecture tour of Europe in the fall.

    . The biggest negative is that while they gave it a stiff internal frame and a separate mesh back to allow airflow (to prevent back sweating), the mesh isn't really tight enough to keep the pack from contacting my back. My wife has an Osprey hydration pack and the mesh back on it is very tightly strung and really works to create an air gap.
    Also not crazy about all the extra lengths of straps, seems like alot of dangling webbing.

        Comments about Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW Backpack (Slate Grey):

        I do a lot of hiking and don't always want a backpack that has slots for specific lenses. I really wanted a top load pocket for hiking gear like food and jacket, and still had a padded pocket for a camera and a lens or two. This fits the bill perfectly. I got the backpack just in time for a 10 mile snowshoe hike to an alpine lake. I got the pack all ready and set the night before. I was able to fit my 5D2 with either the 100L macro or the 24mm f/1.4L attached and the other lens in the back of the pouch.

        The pack was very comfortable and was capable of holding everything I planned on bringing including snacks during the hike, a meal for lunch, my rain jacket, my fleece when I got hot and my snowshovel. My 24oz water bottle fit in the adjustable (nice feature) pocket no problem. I never had problems or issues with the thin shoulder straps. I felt padded and comfortable the entire time. Flipping the bag around to get access the camera is a natural feeling/movement. If you are shooting a quick photo then putting the camera away and moving on you just swing the bag back around, otherwise take out the camera and put the bag down. *bonus feature for me* The padded pocket is nice and firm and makes a great flat surface inside the top pocket to set things in. Regular hiking backpacks are soft and floppy, not an end all, but something I really enjoyed with this pack.

        The belt strap is small and frankly pathetic. I had to readjust a couple times throughout the day because it would work itself loose. The belt also doesn't hold the weight of the pack very well. The weight was carried more on my shoulders unless I made the belt very tight. I really wish it was more like the Prorunner 400 AW, a big beefy buckle and strap.

        My other negative is that the front pocket is almost useless. It has great space but with the camera padded pocket it is hard to get easy access to it. It worked out well for me because I put my 3/4lb bag of beef jerky there and didn't need to be digging around the pocket. I really wish there was a zippered pocket on the front. I like simple zipper pockets I can through stuff in and have easy access to.

        I feel that if the bag had a bigger belt strap, a front zipper pocket, and a bigger/more usefull front pocket then I would have rated this a 5 star bag.

          Used this on a 15+ mile hike to Triple Divide Pass in Glacier National Park with a > 2000 foot gain in the last 2 miles up to the pass. Had plenty of room for water, rainwear, lunch, my Nikon 3200 plus 2 extra lenses. The material is light enough that I did not feel hampered by the weight (I am 65 years old). As with any product, though, access to lenses/camera is not all that quick and easy when pack has other gear in it. Used the pack as my "carry-on" on flights out and back to Montana from Wisconsin.

          Bought this backpack for day hikes in the Appalachian mountains. Great for carrying camera, lens and filters along with water, rain jacket, and food. The 30L AW, however, is bigger than I need for day hikes. I returned it and exchanged it for the 200AW that is more in line with my needs. Service from B&H during the exchange process was excellent! Would still recommend the 30L AW for someone carrying more equipment than I do.

          I replaced an old Lowepro bag for this one. It is great because it has maximum protected storage for my camera and lenses while also being a comfortable realistic bag for the outdoors. I am very impressed with the set up of the bag and it definitely goes everywhere I go.

          Comments about Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW Backpack (Slate Grey):

          As the title eludes, this bag is almost perfect. Hence it gets 4 stars, not 5.

          I will primarily use this backpack for hiking, backcountry snowboarding, and traveling. I've only had it for about 2 weeks, but it came just in time for a backcountry trip I took last weekend that involved towing behind snowmobiles, spending 2 nights, hiking up hills from camp , snowboarding and shooting as much as I could. Compared my my previous arsenal of backpacks, it was much better. But, they also weren't amazing bags.

          The PROs with this bag are:
          1) In the top pocket, it carries a lot. Bulky jacket, first aid kit, extra hat, goggles, lunch, etc., etc. I was impressed.
          2) waist belt pockets are so convenient. love 'em.
          3) camera pouch is big and protected well. I never worried about my gear.
          4) has enough options for attaching other things. Poles, water bottle, tripod, probe, shovel, etc. etc. It all fit in a well-thought out place. For example, the shovel slides into an outer pocket area and doesn't hinder getting into the bag. Something my last bag didn't offer.
          5) Wallet/key pouch is big and convenient.
          6) It's built well and LowePro knows what they are doing. Camera is easily accessible.

          The CONs with the bag are: (and if these were fixed, the bag would be a 5 star bag - easily.)
          1) straps are pretty wimpy and not very padded. Kind of feel like they will rip off actually, if carrying too much stuff.
          2) the clips (chest, waist, etc.) are small and nearly impossible to navigate w/ gloves on. Burlier clips would help soooo much.
          3) chest clip/strap thing isn't actually sewn into the shoulder straps. Small little plastic pieces slide onto some ribbing on the straps. Turns out they slide off easily too. HUGE flaw in this bag.
          4) waist straps are nice, but when the bag is on they are closer to the lower back than they are the front of your body where you can easily reach them. Move them forward 5 inches and it would be better.
          5) I prefer the kind of waist strap that tightens as you pull it forward, instead of yanking the straps backwards. Definitely just an opinion here, but one that I feel strongly would improve this bag.
          6) Wasn't exactly sure where the water bladder was supposed to go inside. there are 2 choices, but neither scream "put water here!" Some sort of labeled, dedicated pocket would be nice AND since it sits above your camera gear, would give me peace of mind that I was putting it in the intended/designed pocket.

          overall, it is a nice backpack and I will use it a lot. If the CONs were fixed, I would never look at another bag ever.

          hope this helps.

          Comments about Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW Backpack (Slate Grey):

          For the last several years I have been looking for a pack that combined 'camera bag' with 'day pack' at one point I was thinking I was going to have to submit my own designs!

          Finally this appears and I read in other reviews that it would accomodate the 70-200mm f/2.8, so I added to my camera bag collection and bought it.

          It made it through the 8 day (Lomosho route for those interested) hike up and back down from the summit without failing in any way.

          Day 1 in the rainforest it had to deal with pouring rain and mud - although it should be said I didn't actually end up on my back in the mud!
          Rain cover worked well... outside of bag was damp but that could have just been the fact that the rain came on so fast that I didn't get the pack off and cover over in time

          Day 2 I realised I had too much weight in there - see Cons

          Day 3, 4 and 5 no problems, I had the weight sorted and it came through the scramble up the Baranco Wall with no tears or snags

          Day 6 it made it to the summit and protected my D7000 from the cold well enough that it was fully functioning in the subzero temperatures up there.

          Day 7 and 8 the descent - fine

          After this it was used as my truck-bag on the 4 day safari through Tanzania's nationl parks. Again it held up well.

          It can hold a lot... when on safari for me it held the following:
          D7000 + Nikon 70-200 VRII f/2.8
          Nikon 50mm f/1.4
          Nikon 2x converter
          Sigma 10-20mm
          Lunch box (not small)
          Sun hat
          Compact camera attached via carabiner to the strap
          Camera Cleaning kit

          On the mountain I tended to carry less heavy glass and have rain gear (pants and jacket) plus lunch but energy bars and cleaning kit and first aid kit etc stuffed into the main compartment.

          My point is, it will hold a LOT - but the more you put in, the more your shoulders will suffer... which leads me to...

          A couple of points:
          1. Be careful with your loading, the straps are not padded. This is a major detraction when you have 9 hour days from pack-on to Pack-off. I think a few ounces extra weigh would have been well worth it to pad the straps.
          2. top pocket zip - the top pocket is great for small items and has a catch for your keys BUT it has a very bad propensity to catch the top nylon flap if you are zipping up in a hurry (like in the rain)

          I should also menation that Days 2, 3, 4 I used a "Cotton Carrier" (reviewed separately) for the camera and one lens. For the Baranco wall and on Summit Night, the camera was in the bag. The "easy access" pouch, isn't actually all that easy - not when compared to the Lowepro Flipside for instance, which I also own, because with the camera in the pouch with lens and vertical grip it's a tight fit and can be a fight to get out - so don't use this if you're hoping to get that once-in-a-lifetime wildlife shot! However, if time is not of the essence it's fine.

          The waist strap pockets are also very useful for tissues, sunglasses, lip bald, sunscreen and the like. There are also D-rings for attaching carabiners on each strap and the hiking pole holders worked very well with my Black Diamond poles.

              Very useful for me!
              It's complete, good space for the camera and the pocket is also very good.

                Been playing with it for a week. Overall design is functional and appears to be pretty well made and the size is a nice combination for long lens camera and other day-hiking gear
                . The biggest negative is that while they gave it a stiff internal frame and a separate mesh back to allow airflow (to prevent back sweating), the mesh isn't really tight enough to keep the pack from contacting my back. My wife has an Osprey hydration pack and the mesh back on it is very tightly strung and really works to create an air gap.
                Also not crazy about all the extra lengths of straps, seems like alot of dangling webbing.

                  Basically my pro gear stays in this bag for when I want to go for a quick day trip up the mountains or on a short photo adventure. I have used the previous photosport 200 until it got stolen and wanted the extra space for the 70-200 and the vertical grip. I have taken this bag on many day trips in the white mountains and its built probably better than most of my over night packs I use. This is a product I highly recommend and thats why when the other pack was stolen I wanted to get the same thing but the extra room was a selling point on this pack!

                    Comments about Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW Backpack (Slate Grey):

                    I was thinking about buying the Lowepro photo sport 200 AW, but after reading all the comments that it could not accommodate an f2.8 70-200 attached to the camera. When this one came out, I thought I'd check it out. A few comments.

                    Camera compartment
                    The lower camera compartment can hold my Canon 5D mk3 with an f2.8 70-200 attached. However, it is the only thing that it could hold. If you find a unique way of putting something additional to the camera/big lens combo in the camera compartment, please post it here. I was also able to get to the camera relatively quickly. The gymnastics took a bit of practice - undo sternum strap, undo belt strap, pull right shoulder strap off and let it articulate around left shoulder, open compartment and remove camera. The camera is accessible, but it's not "quick draw" by any stretch. The camera compartment is also removable.

                    Upper compartment
                    The upper compartment sits on top of the camera compartment. When you first open the upper compartment, you see a small elasticized pocket. You think "great, I can put small stuff here, like an extra battery or memory cards." You can do this, but be aware that the pocket compartment goes all the way past the camera compartment to the bottom of the pack. So yeah, your filters/cards you're going to have to dig for as they will settle. As a plus though, you can put a lot of stuff in the top compartment. For giggles, I put two extra lenses, 2 speedlights, a precip jacket and a light fleece and got it all in there. As I had it loaded up, I took it on the trail.

                    Ergonomics
                    The pack feels good and feels like a high grade daypack. Adjustable sternum strap, good padding on the shoulders and hip belt was able to take most of the weight comfortably. Good back plate. I walked for about 2 hours with it and it felt fine. Trampoline mesh back to keep you cooler. There are small pockets on the hip belt that appear useful, but I've got to experiment to what that best use is. Bottom straps will take a tripod. Top zippered compartment with a key snap. I ended up using the top zippered compartment for the smaller stuff (card wallet, filters) as the elastic pocket in the top compartment didn't work out for me. It also has a rain cover.

                    Hydration
                    I do not have a hydration bladder yet (the pack does not come with one). So I just used the outside pocket for a water bottle which worked fine for me. If you want to use a hydration bladder, there is a place for routing the tube through the pack. Just be aware that the zipper for the bladder is inside the top main compartment. In the 200AW, it is a separate compartment.

                    In conclusion, the bag is well made (although mine was missing 2 zipper pulls), answers the need to be able to carry a full frame with a 200mm zoom and 1-2 other lenses. It's strength is mobility, so it's not your wedding camera bag. I'm taking this bag on a photo architecture tour of Europe in the fall.
