I chose to take this bag to Yellowstone last week in the winter snow because I thought I could get a lot of equipment in it and also have easy access to my camera through the side entry door. By reconfiguring the inside I was able to take two camera bodies (Nikon D7001 and D7000), Nikon lenses 18-200, 80-200, 10-24, 35 and Tamron 200-500 all with hoods and an SB600 flash, cleaning supplies, 3 spare batteries, accessories. On top of all that, I attached my Manfrotto 4 section graphite tripod with RRS ballhead onto the side strap/support. And then it also carried my iPad which I decided to take instead of my laptop but the laptop also would have fit. By taking the iPad, I also fit my Bose headphone case in the laptop pocket with the iPad. It was tight but I never thought I could get this all into and onto one bag but it worked out. Obviously it was heavy but this simplified air travel immensely. I don't check or gate check any camera equipment. It goes overhead or under a seat - period. Also as another pleasant surprise, the bag stands vertically by itself with all of this stuff in and on it. Unbelievable!! Simply the best bag I have ever used. My old Delsey shoulder bag is also great but not as great as this one. I also have two other Lowepro bags but this one is far superior to those other good bags also.

The only thing that would make this bag even better is a D-ring to hook a carabiner onto. I used the top hand holding loop instead to hook onto.

Works Well

This bag isn't as large as I thought, I wish it would have been a little deeper. Laptop fits snug and no place for the power source. The color is not that attractive.

      I use this for my Mamiya RB67 kits, either with the 50/65/90/127mm "C" primes and 4-5 film backs, or the 100-200mm "C" zoom and 7-8 film backs. And tripod or lightstand to boot! Plenty of room for everything and it's very comfortable. It also shows no sign of coming apart after months of abuse. Love it!

      Comments about Lowepro Transit Backpack 350 AW (Slate Grey):

      My friend recommended this camera backpack to me. It is what I wanted, It holds my Nikon 200-500 mm lens with my D750 body attached plus a camera with smaller Len.
      It is quite light compare with the other bands. It is great for traveling, outing and shooting. The color is nice, not in black. I love it very much.

          This is a great bag for those who have a small camera gear to carry. I have one body two small-medium range lenses and a 70-200 lens. It fits all of it and with room to spare. I was able to fit my handheld flash, card holders, two batteries and card reader inside also. In addition there is a separate pocket for your laptop which is very convenient. On the outside there is a latch for carrying a tripod, although I have not used it yet. Overall a great purchase.

                This is a great study backpack. I fit a 5d miii with battery pack and 70-200mm lens attached, a 6D, a 24-70mm lens, a 100mm Macro lens, and a speedlite in the main compartment. Other small accessories fit well in the upper compartment. It also has a nice side tripod holder.

                The only issue I have had with it is that the plastic cap on the zipper cord came off of one of the zippers.

                  Love the style/weight of the bag. Traveling in Israel with a Leica m9 with a 35mm lens, Pentax 645D with a 75/150 lens, and a 15" laptop. pretty great storage for odds and ends, wish they figured out an extra zipper storage part here and there. Also, the front part of the strap has already snapped off and I will have to ask for Lowepro to replace it when I return, still happy I bought it though

                  Although the default padding arrangement is for DSLR-format cameras, rearranging the pads allows it to easily hold a Pentax 645z and three lenses. The side door would be handy for quickly pulling out gear, but I can't use it for that because of how I need the padding arranged.
                  Solid bag, well made.

                      I was worried this bag wouldn't be large enough to carry my stuff. It easily carries: one DSLR with a 24-105 lens attached, 2 wide angle lenses, 2 flashes, transmitter & receivers, several extra cords & cables. The area in the top holds lots of batteries, my extra memory cards, my neck strap, and color cards. I also love the side zipper access to quickly get to my DSLR without having to set the backpack down if the ground is muddy or wet. It's comfy to wear even when heavy (I'm a 105-lb. woman). I can't see ever needing a different bag. This one is perfect.

                            This bag lives up to all its advertising. Easily adjustable to fit my camera, lenses and many accessories (filters, extra batteries, charger, etc.), as well as plenty of additional room for extra, non-camera stuff. Holds my full-sized MacBook Pro and its charger, and still have room for my "3-1-1" bag. It's well padded and fits comfortably. I have the sections arranged so I can use the side-zipper to easily get to my camera without having to open the entire bag and risk having things drop out.

                            cause this is the one you want! Super customizable and will hold everything, including your tripod. Very durable and thanks to the build and all of the padding, it holds its shape even if it's empty. Definitely worth the price!

                                This thing is quite customizable, the pictures speak for themselves. It's stylish, I love the side access (a previous favorite on my old Slingshot 200) But compared to my old Slingshot the ability to open backpack style is now preferred to me personally. I don't have to keep my 70-200 off body if I don't want to anymore! I have three nit-picky qualms with this bag; the way the zipper dips down over the top feels a little clunky sometimes, I wish the little front zipper pouch was microfiber lined to protect a cellphone or sunglasses, and I do miss the built in microfiber cloth that my Slingshot had. Other than that I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it.

                                I use this backpack to transport my two cameras as well as the tripod and additional camera accessories and it fits them all very snugly and the backpack is well padded and secures your gear well. I tend to hike around in a forest for a majority of my pictures so I deal with some unstable terrain and it handles that well. I do wish it had some more space in the laptop pocket as my 16" laptop doesn't fit in the 14" pocket .-.

                                  Fits a minimal dslr set up. Fits my 15 macbook snugly. I use it for my camera, laptop, extra lens, mic, extra batteries, cf cards an several other small items. If it were to fit much more the bag would be too big to use as an everyday bag.
