Perfect. Exactly what I need.

This is the perfect size to put in a back-pack not to take a lowepro back-pack for a half-day walking the streets or travelling.

I already got a Nixon back-pack that I use to put my laptop in (in a specific place). I use the Rezo as an optionnal pouch for my D700 and two lenses (28 300 VC Tamron and Nikon 60mm micro AFD).

Of course I can use it whenever I want, taking it out of my back-pack to get only the camera gear, and when I need to put something else in my back-pack (clothes...).

I appreciate the all weather (AW) cover, that I didn't got on my old lowepro camera bag.
There is also a soft cover, inside the bag, to protect the camera screen.

I bought this bag for a Canon Rebel XTi. The bag is very will made and will protect your camera pretty well while making it easier to carry. The inside of the bag is lined with fabric and features two adjustable dividers that velcro to the walls of the bag. These dividers are completely removable, so you can either have one large compartment or 3 smaller ones or even 2 compartments. There is a flap on the inside of the lid that will allow you to store memory cards - pretty useful. There is also an outside front pocket that will allow you to store extra batteries, cables, and cleaning equipment.

While these features of the bag are great, there is one huge drawback... The bag is much to small. For someone like me who is a hobbyist and looking to move more into professional photography, this bag does not leave much room for anything more than the camera and a lens. The camera itself takes up more than half of the interior compartment with a standard 18-55 mm lens attached. Even with the lens unattached to the camera, you're still looking at over 3/4 of the interior being filled and leaving you with a small little compartment you might be able to store filters in. There is absolutely no room for more than one lens to be safely stored in the bag, which is a huge drawback as it limits your versatility as far as what lenses you can carry with you.

If you are just a hobbyist who has no need or desire for multiple lenses and filters, then this bag is perfect as it is small, compact, and gets the job done. However, if you are looking at eventually buying more lenses, you may want to spend a little bit more to get a bigger bag, as you will not have room in this bag.

Comments about Lowepro Rezo 170 AW Camera Shoulder Bag:

This is my 3rd lowepro bag in another size. Once again, lowepro created an excellent bag. The only downfall is the way it opens. Other wise, after removal of the dividers, I was able to fit a 5dmark II with 2 extra lens. I used this case while at a yankee game at the stadium. It fit well under the seat and felt so light with the strap. I would highly recommend this bag.

      I got this as a gift when I purchased my D800. It's a little small for me for traveling but definitely a solid bag if you have a more compacted DSLR. Solid design.

            This bag came with the D600 at no extra cost. I probably wouldn't have bought it on its own, but I really am glad it came with the camera and I use it all the time. I will probably buy another one to use with my D5000 - it really is a functional camera bag.

                Comments about Lowepro Rezo 170 AW Camera Shoulder Bag:

                We purchased this to hold a T3i, along with the extra hand-me-down lenses we received and other accessories; I really like the 'flipped' direction of the main zippered compartment opening (although it takes some getting used to,) the multitude of pockets (and sleeves within pockets,) and the built-in raincover and polishing cloth are nice. We purchased over the Rezo 160 because the extra height is useful for sticking other items in the main pocket in a pinch, and we wanted room to grow should we pick up a flash. Build quality, as with every other Lowepro item I've owned, is superb. The size takes some getting used to, as my last bag was something like a 120 or 140, but given how much more this bag holds, it's unavoidable.

                  I own a Lowepro Flipside 300 which I use for photo expeditions and treks. However when I am just casually taking photos at parties and such, this bag is absolutely perfect for my use. Very light, great feeling strap and incredibly comfortable, it can fit my D800+ a few lenses including my 50mm sigma prime and 18-270 telephoto. Was surprised when I found the rain guard which even my travel backpack doesn't have. Has tons of pockets for all my little accessories like filters and batteries and extra mem cards, as well as cleaning kit. Highly recommended and a perfect extra freebie with my D800

                        I use this as a casual camera case when I am just carrying one camera and a couple of lenses, or the flash. It works great and is comfortable to carry. It has a convenient zippered top flap to access the camera and lenses. It also has a separate pocket accessible from the front which I use for spare batteries, memory cards, etc. Very useful.

                          I don't like that front flop which really has no purpose. 1 Stars for Design.

                          Very nice compact bag.

                          Would like a bigger bag for my new camera.

                                Its a Lowepro well constructed and well made. This should be the model (Rezo 170) for people who have a DSLR one lens and a flash. It really is not meant for too much more to fit in there. If you have a 4/3 camera then maybe two lenses and some other stuff. If you have a DSLR its a little tight to get the batter charger and a spare batt in the front. Cant really say anything bad about this bag it is very good !
