I love this bag. Period. I spent quite some time looking for the right bag that I could use to transport my camera, a couple accessories, and some personal gear such as jacket, food, etc. This is the perfect one. If you just want your SLR with a lens attached and maybe one other lens plus batteries, cards, as well as some personal items and a laptop then this bag will do the job nicely. It's super comfortable to wear and very versatile. You can even collapse the camera compartment to use this as a regular backpack when you don't need your photography gear. For me, it's just the right size. A Canon 60D with 18-200mm attached fits nicely in the camera compartment with some room to spare. I'm really glad that I finally found this bag!

Let me start with what I was looking for:

I travel for work, about 2 trips per weeks, and I wanted to take my camera with me to take photos. my gear:
Lenovo X220 laptop, tablet (LG G Pad), Notebook, a manila folder (work docs), charging cables, Canon 6d with Rokinon 14mm lens or 40mm pancake lens.

The bag is very nice. pockets are well designed, and overall it's compact.However, I noticed two main issues:

1. 6D will not fit perfect in the designated pocket, it seems that it's built for rebels, rather than full frame bodies. If I have the 40mm lens on, I am able to put the camera sideways, and fit it in easily. Otherwise, if I have any other lens, the top part of the camera (prism) will push against other pockets of the bag. I don't feel comfortable with putting this much pressure on the camera.

2. The bag will not sit up straight, it tips over all the time (tips forward).

Despite these two flaws, I'm keeping the bag, considering the low price. I purchased, and returned, two backpacks before that: Manfrotto backpack (Large), and Gruv Gear backpack. both were too big.

had it been just a bit bigger (especially the camera pocket), it would've been perfect for my needs.

    Comments about Lowepro CompuDaypack Photo 250 Backpack (Black):

    Its small, yet big enough to fit everything I need. It helps me keep everything organized. Even fits my tripod! Awesome for when you're on-the-go. I would recommend this bag for anyone looking to carry 1 or 2 cameras, 1-2 lenses and a 13in macbook when doing street photography or just traveling.

    Very compact backpack with the capability of holding 1 camera and lens with a laptop and some documents and a couple of little things. The camera pack is large enough to hold a 50-500 along while you can put the body in the main pack. The side zipper makes it as convenient as a sling pack.

            very light wight and can have allot of gear in it.
            I use it for my NX300 and 18-200 lens and my monster headphone also in it is my iPad air and macbook pro 15'' although the mac need a little push to fit in , there is no problem closing the zipper for.
            the bag itself appear smaller then what it hold and feel comfortable on the back when carrying it.
            when putting all gear together it feels a little tight in term of space.

            I have switched to this bag from the big Lowepro compupack due to the size and weight.
            I am using this one for daily going to work to keep my laptop and some accessories and also for photo shot or all day traveling.
            This is very light weight, ergo and convenient even I carry it whole day.

            I wanted a small everyday bag I could use to transport my MBA 13" to and from work, and occasionally bring my camera along. This bag fits the bill. It's small and light, and has room for the laptop and its accessories. Nice side pocket to store my camera. It is slightly smaller than expected. When I've got the laptop and camera in it, theres really not a lot of room for much else. May be a light weight rain jacket. A bit smaller than I expected, but I wanted something small. Other minor issue: It's so small that when I let out the straps to a level that's comfortable to me, the bag sits about halfway down my back. Not a huge deal, but a little different than most bags that sit right at my shoulders or just below. All in all, a very good bag.

            This backpack works great to hold a laptop, a digital SLR, and some accessories (or workout gear). It's a great daily bag, with plenty of pockets and space. However, it's not overly bulky, and doesn't scream "expensive photography gear inside". In fact, my co-workers liked it so much, that 2 of them bought this same bag! Would highly recommend.

            The one (small) downside is that the zippers can stick a bit. However, I still give it 5 stars.

              This is my third backpack in the last four years, I needed something smaller than my Clik backpack.I purchased a backpack last year that was too large for what I carry, which is a Canon 50D with Tokina 20-35mm wide angle lens with hood. Two smartphones, wallet, water bottle and keys.
              Picked up a Ruggard shoulder bag in January 2014 which I like but it's a bit small and after squeezing in my speed lite a few weeks ago. My shoulder was sore for a week.

              This backpack arrived Friday, just in time since I was going out into the city to shoot some street art.

              It's small enough for a ladies frame but you can still manage to put a lot of your necessary camera gear in with no problems. It also comes with the clip to attach your keys which was a must for me.

              Love this bag and glad I picked it up when it was on sale!!

                  I bought this bag for an upcoming trip to use as a carryon bag. I'm surprised how much room is in the bag for accessories and other items. The one issue I have with this bag which kept me from giving this bag 5 stars is the fact that my HP Envy 15z is a really tight fit in the laptop compartment.

                  It's a great compact bag for your DSLR and a few other things. It was a a bit smaller and lighter than expected but there are plenty of compartments to keep everything organized. The best feature of this bag is definitely the side compartment for the DSLR. It's super easy to take the camera out and re-stow it.

                    I'm someone who is always in need of bringing a backpack. this pack holds everything i always have in a bigger bag and i love the side pocket for my camera or lenses.
                    I've always trusted Lowepro for soft bags for my cameras and lenses, when I saw this I had to have it.
                    All the storage compartments make it easy to stay organized.
                    I don't usually give 5/5 even for the best but Lowepro has a winner with this bag.
                    And the handle is amazing!!, a usual weak element of a backpack.

                        Let me start with what I was looking for:

                        I travel for work, about 2 trips per weeks, and I wanted to take my camera with me to take photos. my gear:
                        Lenovo X220 laptop, tablet (LG G Pad), Notebook, a manila folder (work docs), charging cables, Canon 6d with Rokinon 14mm lens or 40mm pancake lens.

                        The bag is very nice. pockets are well designed, and overall it's compact.However, I noticed two main issues:

                        1. 6D will not fit perfect in the designated pocket, it seems that it's built for rebels, rather than full frame bodies. If I have the 40mm lens on, I am able to put the camera sideways, and fit it in easily. Otherwise, if I have any other lens, the top part of the camera (prism) will push against other pockets of the bag. I don't feel comfortable with putting this much pressure on the camera.

                        2. The bag will not sit up straight, it tips over all the time (tips forward).

                        Despite these two flaws, I'm keeping the bag, considering the low price. I purchased, and returned, two backpacks before that: Manfrotto backpack (Large), and Gruv Gear backpack. both were too big.

                        had it been just a bit bigger (especially the camera pocket), it would've been perfect for my needs.

                        This is what I was exactly wanted. I am not a professional photographer and don't have much photography gears. So rest of the space I can use for my other stuff while travelling, like my laptop (up to 14')/tab, documents, keys, my point-n-shoot, etc. Accessing the camera while in back is very easy and convenient. Well padding will give you safety feeling for the camera.

                          I like how compact this bag is for travel. I have several other camera cases I use for certain circumstances but this is my favorite when I don't need to bring a lot. It holds my camera, lens, laptop, ipad along with essential accessories. You won't fit much more in this bag, but I appreciate the simplicity especially for airline travel.
