Great For Hiking When You Want to Have a Camera

By Bayley

Perfect for my needs. I needed a camera to hike in Sedona to capture an engagement session for a beautiful couple and this pack enabled me to have my hands completely free!

OK

It can hold a drone, a camera and additional lens. However, as a backpack the supporting system is not as good as other backpacks such as Osprey and Gregory

Good for one day hiking

I received this backpack from B&H recently, I love it , light weight , comfortable, enough space for carrying my gear and my stuff . First day I started street photography, my gear ( Canon EOS R Attached with EF 24-70mm , EF 50 mm , speed flash, tripod and my bottle of water, it was comfortable . Second day , I went to the beach , same my my gear , including my towel , spare t-shirt and light food , little pit heavy but it is still comfortable. This backpack is good for Street, one day trip and hiking , I recommended for amateur photographers, I wish the backpack is bigger size like BP 200 AW first edition

When your hike calls for a camera too hefty to comfortably clip to your shoulder strap, the LowePro Photo Sport provides a good alternative. The padded camera compartment holds a DSLR and one additional lens (or compact binoculars, or your CCW), and there's a non-padded top compartment big enough for the 10 essentials for an adventurous day-hike. It accommodates a 2L water bladder, has usable hip belt pockets and adjusts well to fit. An unexpected bonus is that the back pad handles perspiration well. You know that sickening moment when you put the wet pack back on, after it has grown cold during a lunch stop? Not so bad, with this pack. The only reason it did not receive 5 stars is that the critical zipper that seals the camera compartment feels flimsy, and that the fabric is water resistant when it should have been waterproof. But all in all, it's a good product at a fair price and I would recommend it to a friend.

Excelent !!!

Just a bit little in the camera/lenses compartiment, got mi Nikon d7000 a 18-200 and a 10-24, thight. But you can easily use some other part to carry one lens more. Super comfortable in lumbar zone specially, doesn't pull you back I love that. Also like the big area above for carrying a jacket, snack or else. Just bought a 2 lt water bag and fits great. Overall is excelent and comfortable. Great quality!

Good quality - but not right for me.

I have been looking for a pack that will work for camera gear and hiking stuff (jackets, food, etc.). This does fit that bill, but access to camera gear is a pain and the ICU area (side access) is small and awkward for storage. I could not access the gear without taking the pack off fully. (The Tenba Solstice series is excellent in this regard). The thing that really surprised me is the lack of a dedicated tripod holder on the back of the pack. The side pocket can be used, but it's not easy to put in, secure and then take out. That is - if you are using something larger than a really compact travel pod. And there are now tie-on spots to jerry-rig a better solution. Very nice quality build and super comfortable to wear. It may become a pack I use for hiking exclusively, but not if I'm planning to bring gear.

Will a Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 IS II USM fit in this bag with a body (760D) plus smaller wide angle lens?
Asked by: Michael
No, it will not fit. Your camera with smaller lens attached and another lens will fit in the padded photo pocket. The 70-200 would have to be carried in the top pocket that is only padded on the bottom. Then it would take up available space for jacket, food, etc. There is no way to fit the 70-200 attached to your camera in the photo pocket, even if you didn't place another lens in that pocket. If you removed the tripod foot, you might be able to squeeze the 70-200 and your camera body in that pocket but not with them attached.

I know it already says no,but I'm curious if the combo changes it. Any way D850 with a battery grip and standard 50 connected along with a 14-24 could work? Or possibly detaching and just throw the grip up top with a flash. Just need something for my bike so the satchel is straining on my shoulder.

question

Will this fit a 200-500mm? I'll be using this for day hikes, and I'll be holding my camera, with the 200-500mm and one or two other small lenses, but no camera. The 200-500 is 10.5 long, 4.3 diameter.
Asked by: Chris K.
Based on the dimensions you provided i don't think so. The side pocket is only 9 and change deep. i carried a canon 5d mark III with 24-70 attached in the side camera pocket, and had room for maybe a smaller lens or two. I ended up carrying my 70-200 lens in another padded case in the main compartment of the backpack.
