Choose the 150 AW if you know what camera gear you are willing to carry. If you want to travel lightly then get this one. I can fit my 5D mark II with 35L mounted and a 135L including a 430ex II speedlite. I like the placement of the tripod strap. I prefer attaching my tripod to the side rather than the back. The rain cover is very useful if you shoot outside. On the top compartment I can fit a Rode videoMic pro external mic and a set of Bose headphones. You'll find a few hidden pockets inside this bag that aren't mentioned which surprised me! I can't find any fault in this bag. I found the right one that caters to my needs.

Excellent bag

By Boi222

Comments about Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW (Black):

This is an excellent compact bag. It holds my canon 70d and two lens and flash. It also can hold my surface pro without any issues. It's comfortable on the back and has easy access to the camera. Highly recommend it , my bag was actually stolen from me while on vacation and I bought the same one to replace it because I couldn't find a better one.

      Comments about Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW (Black):

      I was looking for a bag to hold:

      - Nikon D700 + 24-70 2.8
      - Wide angle lens
      - flash
      - CF cards/accessories
      - water bottle
      - laptop/tablet

      I have the AW 250, but when I travel and want to pack light, it's just a tad too big.

      This bag easily fits all of the above. It would be nice if I could attach a small tripod and a water bottle at the same time (you can only do one or the other), but I can certainly live with that one omission.

      Overall, I really like this bag.

      Comments about Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW (Black):

      I was in the market for a long time searching for a smaller backpack that can fit a 13" laptop. If you are searching, you can end your search. I have a small kit, consisting of a T4i with the 18-55 STM lens + extra battery +several SD cards. I knew that if I got the larger backpack, the 250, I wouldn't use it because I like to travel light. I could see this backpack fitting an additional 2 lenses. If you know your gear and are confident that you can be limited to a smaller kit, get this backpack!

      Some notes.
      One thing I want to mention is the laptop compartment is a bit tight. I have the 2013 Macbook Air and it fits easily, but a Macbook Pro or a PC will definitely be a tight fit.
      Also one thing that happens when I wear the backpack is the straps do not rest flush on my chest. I'm not sure if its because I haven't broken it in yet or this is how it works, but either way I can live with it.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW (Black):

          I wanted a camera to fit:

          - Nikon D700 (without grip) with attached 24-70 2.8
          - 18-35 wide angle lens.
          - Flash
          - Water bottle

          All of the items above fit easily into the bag. There is also a laptop sleeve and an additional top compartment for accessories/personal items.

          The weight is well distributed. The 24-70 is a beast, but doesn't seem to bad in the bag.

          I just got it so I can't speak for durability, but all of my previous Lowepro bags have been through the ringer so I assume this one will last as well.

          My only wish would be to be able to attach a small tripod + a water bottle at the same time. Right now, you have to pick one or the other. But I can live with that.

          Comments about Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW (Black):

          I looked for a while for packs under a $100 that had a combination of a few features, it was the only one I could find with all of them. Has a side load camera compartment for quick access, a tripod holder, a laptop compartment and an extra place for other stuff. I love it! It is very well made and very well thought out. The all weather cover comes in handy and is really easy to get to. I have already used it a few times and have only had the bag a few weeks.

              This is a great backpack for the street photographer/videographer. I use it as a photographer. I bought it because it looks great, it's black and small enough to carry around. It also has a thing for the tripod which is a plus. It holds my Canon 6D with a 17-40 and 50 mm. The top part of the backpack holds snacks and other misc stuff. I'm just bummed it doesn't have a chest strap but that's a small issue.

              Bought this bag just before a trip to Hawaii. B&H shipped very fast as usual. This bag was the perfect size to carry our Nikon D5200 and 18-200 zoom, plus room for another lens, battery charger, filters, spare sd cards, cleaning supplies, 10" tablet and room to spare. In fact it was the only thing we carried, our wallets, sun glasses and some snacks were also in there. Getting the camera out to shoot was quick and simple, loved that part.

                      I have really enjoyed this bag so far. It is very compact, but also accommodates all of the things that I need to carry. The smaller size was very appealing to me - especially compared to other companies where the bags are much larger.

                      It is comfortable to wear - and I enjoy having the two straps (instead of the one-strap style). I feel that it is very safe - because of extra buckles - so I do not worry when I'm carrying it with me in crowds. It also has a padded section for a small laptop. Nice feature!

                            I was looking for a small backpack for my EOS D6 and 2 lenses (16-35 and 24-105) and a Little room for personal stuff.
                            This bag does the trick. On top of that, it seem to be of really good quality and it has a rain cover.

                              It is a really nice and well made bag. I would recommend it to anyone unless they have a bige camera like a Nikon D7100 or a D800e with a telefoto lens.

                              If you have like a Nikon D5200 or 3200 it might be good. But for me I find it small and not enough pockets.

                              I suggest you actually hold it in your hands first before buying. They have it at the store and they're always willing to help you getting what you need.

                                  This bag is amazing. Because of the unique side entry feature I was able to fit my Nikon D5100 with a 55-300mm scope along with the kit lens. No other bag in this price range was able to do that and I didn't want to upgrade to an unnecessarily large bag. The only drawback is the lack of a removable camera pack, but who needs that when your back is so light and nimble you can take it anywhere.

                                    The backpack is padded with a special material that is not only very comfortable but it also absorbs humidity in order to keep you cool.

                                    I specifically liked the easy access to the camera -you just flip the backpack to your front, unzip the compartment and take the camera. And talking about compartments, it has plenty of them; it even comes with a special bag to sort your cables out, as well as special compartments to keep your memory cards away from dust.

                                    I never actually thought I would ever get to use the impermeable backpack cover included underneath the Fastpack 150, but just like a life vest pulled from under, it saved my equipment from getting wet during a forest hike in Germany.

                                    It's amazing how I could fit four different lenses and the camera in the main compartment. The tripod holder is extremely easy to use and it also served me as a bottle holder when I was not carrying my tripod. I particularly like how thoroughly padded the laptop compartment is -my MacBook Pro was safe all along our trip.

                                        It is a very nice , looking stylish bag. Unfortunately, everything I need for a video shoot fits very tightly in this bag. For the top compartment I put a Sony UWP wireless system with Zoom H4n and headphones and I could barely close it. I think I will have to go the middle size bag.

                                          I carry a DSLR 3 lenses & flash. When traveling on business and don't need my laptop, this bag also carries my iPad, cables & and junk! Very versatile backpack with the AW protection. Very satisfied. Upcoming trip to Tuscon and then to Panama will put it to great use. Excellent quality.
