    Lowepro 200 AW Reviews

    Vertex 200 AW Backpack (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meets requirements This back package does what I need. It is large, but I needed something that could hold my camera gear and a laptop. My only complaint is the waist belt. It would be better if it could removed or added when needed. I will most likely cut it off. Also, the tripod holder is made of a hard material, so it does not store well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag, very comfortable, but... I loved walking around NYC with this bag. It's very well made and fits a ton of stuff. The reason I love this bag, is also the reason I don't use it much anymore. The waist straps are massive and work well, but are always in the way. I don't use them all the time, so they flop around like wi ha of death, slapping people in their seats (on planes) and when I set it on a shelf or place it anywhere, the straps are seemingly all over the place. I wish you could remove the straps and put them away, when you don't need them. Similar to the Manfrotto Pro 50 bag. I own the Kata revolver, a manfrotto simple bag, and the Low Pro 15L blue flip side. I am STILL looking for a bag I can love and use for everything. My next trial will be the manfrotto pro 50 and the upcoming Peak Design Everyday Backpack. I bought this bag in the B and H store and walked all over NYC, NJ and parts of Europe with it. I used to carry the 5d3, 24-70, 70-200, 85L, 100L macro, 35L, 135L, and sometimes a few other L lenses, like the 24-105, 16-35, 8-15 and the 100-400. This bag held most of my gear and flashes and beyond, but again, the straps were all over the place when it in use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied I recently replaced my equipment after it was stolen 2 years ago after 5 years of use. I opted for the same Vertex 200 AW backpack based on my previous experience with it. It has ample space and provides plenty options for even weight distribution of equipment. The waterproof linings around the zippers is a big plus. The only con for me is the padded waist straps cannot be removed like the Pro-runner. The padded waist straps are seldom used and makes the bag a little on the bulky side. Otherwise still a great product and strongly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camera Backpack I've Owned I've owned half a dozen camera backpacks over the years, but I always come back to this one whenever I have to travel on a rugged adventure. I bought this from B&H 6 years ago and it's held up quite well. I've trekked up mountains in the Cascades, done photo shoots along the beaches of Maui with it buried in the sand, and hiked through the Patagonia in blisteringly cold conditions. This bag has never failed to protect my equipment. Here's an idea of some of the gear I'd pack for a paid commercial photo shoot: 1) Canon 1DX with 24-70 f2.8 v2 attached. 2) Canon 5Dmk3 3) Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS v2 4) Profoto B1 Air Strobe 5) Canon 85mm f1.2 v2 6) Canon 100mm f2.8 IS Macro 7) 15 Macbook Pro Retina 8) 3 spare batteries for the 5Dmk3 9) 2 spare batteries for the 1DX 10) Chargers for cameras and Mac 11) 4 CF and 4 SD cards 12) Filters, cleaning kit, & misc. items 13) Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod 14) Mathews 9' light stand 15) Profoto 2' x 3' softbox. Yes. All of that can fit in the back, though of course it weighs around 35lbs and flight attendants might question whether you can safely store that in an overhead compartment for international flights. With this bag or even the bigger 300 AW, the real limit to the amount of gear you can fit in here is what you're willing to carry over your shoulders. Pros: 1) Weather resistant main compartment and laptop zippers really do help keep cold air, moisture and sand from entering the bag. 2) Adjustable shoulder and hip straps enable a proper fit on my 5' 10 200lbs body. 3) Adjustable straps for carrying tripod (holster is also removable) and for carrying up to 2 light stands at the same time. 4) Outer compartments are great for carrying spare memory cards, filters, batteries all things that I need to quickly access. 5) When not carrying a laptop, I use that compartment to house a 1.5 L water bladder. The straw can fit neatly in the shoulder strap so it's easy to access. Cons: 1) Pretty obvious that it's a camera backpack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, great! I traded up to the Vertex 200 from a prior LowePro bag. So far, I love the new rig. I carry two DSLR bodies and three or four lenses. It all fits very well. My only complaint is that I cannot fit both bodies in the bag with lenses attached (I keep a 70-200 lens on one of the bodies).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design and quality control problems The size is good and the suspension system with its straps and waist band and moveable sternum strap are first rate and the best I have found with any backpack camera bag. Unfortunately the rest of the backpack is below average with its design. I want to be able to store items outside the main compartment that I will need while shooting like a shutter release, filters, lens cleaner, water bottle, etc. and the Vertex 200 is poorly designed to accommodate this. The two side pockets are divided into numerous tiny pockets that are for the most part too small to put anything inside. There are tiny pockets that could only hold a CF or SD card and I keep mine in a wallet so one half of one side is completely wasted for my purposes. Another half of one side has 3x3 pockets with no zipper so anything placed in them can easily slide out. On the opposite side there are mesh pockets but fully a third of the possible space is lost with the poor placement of the zippers. The side mesh pockets do not have flexibly material at the edges and one pocket was already torn away when I received the new backpack from the dealer. I could not even squeeze a 500ml water bottle into the side pocket. There is a very large compartment for a large laptop. I don't carry a laptop into the field so this space is completely wasted. I do sometimes carry an iPad but it would be lost inside the large pocket. On the inside there is a third of the inside storage area that is supposed to be for a filter wallet. Why would anyone want to have to open the main compartement completely to get a filter out and expose all their gear to the elements? The design also precludes attaching additional straps to carry items on the outside of the bag like a jacket or ground cloth. Bottom line is that this is a poorly designed backpack with a great shoulder strap and waist belt and a resulting weight that is from 2.75 to 3.5 lbs. heavier than other bags its size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag I purchased this bag with 2 reasons in mind. The first was I needed a larger bag to carry my 5diii and several lens in one bag for travel purposes. This bag is large enough to hold quite a bit of gear and from what I have read it is FAA compliant. I have not flown with it yet so I am just going on what I have read else where. The second reason for choosing this bag was to fit my sigma 150-600 sport with a gripped 5diii attached. With the hood reversed and large lens cover on this combo fits perfectly with about an inch to spare at the bottom. I recently traveled locally on a vacation with this combo as well as my 24-70 and 70-200 2.8 ii in the bag with plenty of room to spare. The bag gets real heavy real fast however. Even when heavy though it feels good on your back. The waist and chest straps are very nice and help keep the pack from moving while on you. Build quality seems great so far. The shoulder straps have nice thick padding feel quite sturdy. The zippers are nice and I have had no problems with them so far. The glide locks on the front and sides are somewhat difficult to move. I accidentally pulled the front one off while playing with it and it seems like a real pain to attempt to reattach them. It doesn't bother me since I had no intention of using it anyway but if I had I would be quite annoyed. The tripod carrier is pretty simple and easy to use. I typically attach my tripod to the side but usually just carry it in my hand anyway. Overall I am impressed with this bag. I rotate through four different bags regularly and this is always my go to for big lenses or lots of gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Choice Well built and designed for versatility with plenty of velcro options for cameras, lenses, filters and other equipment including tripods. I particularly like the weather sealed zippers for the main and laptop compartments. More than adequate storage for 3+ lenses including my Canon 7d II mounted with a (large) Sigma 150-500mm lens. This is a terrific value for under $! 100 times better than my first choice (since returned) @ half the price but short on everything else except that it has a hard bottom and stood up more easily.

    question

    Can the Vertex 200 AW Backpack by Lowepro fit the canon 1dx or similar sized camera bodies?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes. The LowePro Vertex 200 AW BackPack can definitely accommodate a full-frame DSLR with grip such as the Canon EOS 1Dx camera.
