  • 1Description

Nature, wildlife, and travel photographers packing camera gear, accessories, and personal items for their next adventure will appreciate the blue Photo Sport BP 300 AW II from Lowepro. The BP 300 AW II features a zippered side compartment with a removable, equipment insert for storing a pro DSLR, 2-3 lenses, and flash. This insert has thick interior padding, and a touch-fastening divider for organizing your gear. Underneath the insert lid are two, slip-in memory card pockets. The gray-colored interior facilitates locating your gear in low light. The large weather flap lifts to reveal a top storage compartment, which for added protection closes with a cinch strap. Store your bike helmet, light jacket and other items requiring quick access inside the exterior, front pocket.

For journeying further, remain hydrated by storing an optional, user-supplied 2-liter water reservoir behind the back panel. Internal routing provides for optimal hydration tube placement. Multiple attachment points on the front of the pack may be used for transporting a tripod, hiking poles, and other items. And for added comfort and stability your BP 300 AW II is easily carried with the adjustable shoulder harness, sternum strap and waist belt. A back panel with mesh padding to cushion impact, wick-away moisture and improve airflow contribute to greater comfort on longer trips. Rounding out the pack is zippered waist belt pockets, one on each side for sunglasses, phone or energy bar, and a built-in, all weather cover for protection from the elements. Constructed of N100, N210D, and HD Oxford nylons, your case is both durable and strong.

    Lowepro 300 AW II reviews

    Photo Sport BP 300 AW II (Blue) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite Right Seems well built but some features are less than desirable. First I am only slightly taller than average but it sits so high on my back the waist strap becomes a belly strap (almost up to my ribs). Second, and for me more importantly, the area for storing non-camera gear is not separated top/from bottom. Anything stored in the top half can slide down between the camera storage and the outer shell of the pack causing too much gear to shift and slide down getting crammed into the bottom. Not to mention anything heavier you might have stored in that compartment (ex. flashlight, snacks, gps) is now the hardest to get to now that it is under everything else. I think this one is going back to the store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a small pack. Ive taken to loading 2 lenses only in the photo side load area, and having my body with a lens attached in the top stuff area. If I took the battery grip off, it would fit in the side ok though. Plenty of room in the top stuff, maybe too much at the expense of some more padded camera gear areas. Lots of adjusting straps although for a big guy like me the waist straps look rather crazy! Great cinch down points all over the pack to keep things well secured, and exterior attachments points for poles or monopod etc. Recommended for a day tripper with camera plus 2 lenses, along with plenty of water and lunch/snacks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent, with some flaws Overall a very nice, stylish bag with some flaws. Perfect for a full day hike. I want to compare this with a similar MindShift bag and the older version of the same bag as well: Consider the MindShift Dual 25L before you buy this. MindShift is definitely more thoughtfully designed, roughly the same dimensions but with more spacious camera compartment & interior section, more comfortable straps & padded back, more spacious hydration compartment. Although, in the end I decided to go with LowePro, as it has an expandable front pocket which the MindShift didn't have. MindShift has a dedicated tripod connection as well. The interior is roomier, and where with the LowePro stuff falls down to the sides, the MindShift has a sealed bottom which can drop down in case you remove the camera compartment to turn it into a regular bag! Clever! The MindShift has a removable camera compartment that can be used as a shoulder bag w/ included strap; the interior drops down to turn into a regular bag when you remove the camera bag. Overall better designed than this LowePro bag. The LowePro will hug your gear a bit more tightly though, as the MindShift camera compartment is more like a spacious hole (but that works well if you have larger gear and/or padded separators to keep your gear snug). MindShift also has a larger waist pocket, but only one of them. The other waist strap is used to hook accessories, or the removable camera compartment (smart design - LowePro should learn). MindShift's traditional padded back is also much more comfortable than LowePro's new back ActivZone back, as with LowePro the bag can dig into your back! It seems as though LowePro designers didn't bother putting the bag on their shoulders with a full load to see how it digs into their backs! I also want to compare the 300 AW II with its older version: this bag is pretty much the same size as the older 200 AW backpack (the new 200 AW II is smaller than the older 200). Compared to that: -the front pocket is better designed (the old one would not fit anything if the bag was full; new one expands to fit a small jacket even when the bag is full). -The camera compartment has roughly 1 inch less room than the older version -A downgrade is that the bottom straps that could hold a small jacket or mat are removed. The water hydration has a much smaller zipper now and less space, though the -The water compartment is the main issue - the older version had slightly more room. This one does NOT comfortably fit either the CamelBak 2L or the Platypus 2L packs, even though LowePro specifically states that the bag is designed for them! It feels as though the designers of this bag didn't bother filling up the hydration packs to see how it fits in the bag! It's easily doable, just not smooth, to insert the hydration packs. The main issue is that the back bulges up a bit and puts pressure on your back, especially with the ActivZone paddings. I found the Platypus more comfortable on my back than the CamelBak, even though the CB is more flat. -Overall the straps and everything in the new bag seem to be of a slightly better quality; new version has buckles that connect the staps to the top of the pack - this makes accessing the hydration pack easier

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Details make a photo and a backpack Not perfect unfortunately so I'm not sure if it's a keeper yet. First, the clip used on the chest strap is a completely different clip than I've ever seen used on outdoor gear. It is difficult to release with one hand -- I found myself having to use two hands to release it. Why?! Why would they use a completely different release on the chest strap? The camera box inside the pack doesn't go all the way across and leaves about 1-1.5 of space inside the pack on one side. It's almost unusable space and would have been better to just make the box go all the way across so you could fit a slightly longer lens in the box. Would be nice if the pack was 400 or 450 size -- I think it would be easily done by widening the pack 3-4 and that's all that would be required. I can fit a jacket, fleece, and a few small snacks in it. Would be awesome if there was a pack with this design that would support single night excursions. H2O compartment is there but doesn't really work with 2.0L bags. Full bags have width and this compartment is made with 0 width. My full water made the bag curved and so it didn't fit on my back well at all. You can't really consider it an H2O compartment if only fits like 1/2 of flat paper -- water bags have volume and this bag isn't meant to support that. The box zippers are too square shaped so often times get stuck at corners again requiring two hands to open or close. Round the zipper path and that would be solved. Positives: Nice close fit. Good materials. I think they're close on design but needs a remodel and work with real photographers in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Day Bag/Photography Diaper Bag I'm a photog father of 2 under 2 years of age and was tired of carrying a camera bag, diaper bag, my wife's purse and other necessary bags everywhere we went. So, I purchased this bag and absolutely love it!! There is plenty of room to store whatever you need for the day, I recently had a small diaper caddy, GoPro case w/two small collapsible tripods, a bag of protein bars, Epi pen and Benadryl for my daughter, my 6D w/24-105 lens, 50 1:4 lens, speed lite with diffuser, 2 extra camera batteries, lense wiles and memory card case for our trip to the hospital to deliver our second child. The only downfall I've experienced so far with this bag is I had to remove my battery grip for my camera to fit in the bag. Other than that I am loving this bag!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This bag serves its purpose. The bag has the appropriate compartment for your camera that is entirely separate from the rest of the bag and easily holds my Nikon D810 with the 28-300 mm mounted plus an additional prime lens to boot. I find this very useful and safe. However, I got a little disoriented at first because I was so used to leaving the strap on my right shoulder to get things from the bag. The camera compartment is located on the other side. Not a deal breaker though. Bag is roomy and can even hold my pro master carbon filter tripod easily inside not to mention other things. All in all a very good camera backpack for travel.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good pack, but just a bit too small. The Good: it is great for biking, hiking and running. It is comfortable and easily fits my frame (6'2 175lb). Materials and build seem high quality, but I haven't torture tested it yet. The Bad: I bought this to carry my Nikon d500 and 3 lenses Nikon 18-200mm, 12-24mm, and 60mm macro. Unfortunately it can only accommodate 2 lenses in the padded area. Not a deal-breaker, as I can pad the 3rd lens and use the unpacked, generously-sized top compartment. But if your looking to carry 3 good sized lenses with a larger DSLR and accessories you'll be disappointed The Ugly: the top compartment isn't separated from the lower portion completely, meaning if you put gear in the top compartment that is smaller (like filters, batteries, card readers, phone, or literally any small camera accessories) it will eventually work its way behind the lower compartment at the bottom of the bag. Serious overlook there, considering there is really no better place to store such items. I would recommend it only for adventure seekers traveling with very minimal gear.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lowepro aw 300 The back quiet small ? Not the perfect size for grownup man ? I have several lowepro bags during he pat years. This one is the most unfinished project bag ! Bag quality is quiet cheap. Not a Lowe pro standards by all means ? I just bought a lowepro too load and difference in quality quiet noticeable The designs has lots of flaws starting from camera bag and the sturdiness of the compartment through losing your small objects behind and on the side of the camera bag from the top load area ?! Even the waist strap is too small for a normal build circumference. I doubt this bad was designed by lowepro
