Key Features
  • Versatile, Multi-Compartment Backpack
  • For Small DSLR or Mirrorless, 3-4 Lenses
  • Holds Camera with Attached 24-70mm Lens
  • Side and Front Access Camera Compartment
The gray Fastpack BP 250 AW III from Lowepro is a versatile backpack that features two main compartments, including a camera compartment along the base of the bag that can be used to hold a small DSLR or mirrorless camera body with three or four lenses, including an attached 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Positioned so that it can be reached when the bag is rotated from one's back to front with its left side facing upward, the camera compartment's zippered, peel-away opening includes an internal clip system that allows the wearer to ensure that the zippered opening provides side access only. Alternatively, the clip system can be released so that the peel-away opening can be fully unzipped and retracted, enabling complete access to the camera compartment such as when the bag is placed on a flat surface with its backpack straps facing downward. Above the camera compartment, a top-facing zippered storage compartment can accommodate packable clothing and features organizer pockets which can be used to store travel documents, camera batteries, memory cards, or small electronics.

Lowepro 250 AW III Overview

The gray Fastpack BP 250 AW III from Lowepro is a versatile backpack that features two main compartments, including a camera compartment along the base of the bag that can be used to hold a small DSLR or mirrorless camera body with three or four lenses, including an attached 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Positioned so that it can be reached when the bag is rotated from one's back to front with its left side facing upward, the camera compartment's zippered, peel-away opening includes an internal clip system that allows the wearer to ensure that the zippered opening provides side access only. Alternatively, the clip system can be released so that the peel-away opening can be fully unzipped and retracted, enabling complete access to the camera compartment such as when the bag is placed on a flat surface with its backpack straps facing downward. Above the camera compartment, a top-facing zippered storage compartment can accommodate packable clothing and features organizer pockets which can be used to store travel documents, camera batteries, memory cards, or small electronics.

When the Fastpack BP 250 AW III is in use, a dedicated zippered compartment for a 13" laptop rests directly behind the shoulders, followed by the two main compartments. For items that need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, the front panel includes a top-facing zippered pocket. This pocket can be used as a space for a notepad, maps, or snacks; and its zipper, like the zippers for the bottom camera compartment and the top storage compartment, includes a large pull that can be easily gripped. While a stretchable side pocket on the wearer's right side can hold a water bottle; a small tripod or monopod can instead be stored within the side pocket and further secured using the retaining strap located above that pocket.

Constructed for durability while remaining lightweight, the Fastpack BP 250 AW III is built to be weather resistant and includes a seam-sealed cover for use under heavy rain.

I like the easy access on the side, but is it possible to secure it so that someone behind you can't easily get in?
Asked by: Greg
There is a strap on the back that prevents it from opening up all the way. That is shown in the 14th photo. You could also place a small lock through the zipper so it cannot be opened.

I have a Nikon D780 fitted with a 24-120mm lens. ...

I have a Nikon D780 fitted with a 24-120mm lens. The spec of the camera bag reads 4.9" (H) whereas the height of the D780 is 4.55". It sounds like a very tight fit. Has anyone tried this combination with the bag? I like a snug fit, but not tight.
Asked by: J.H. JOHN
We just tried this at the superstore and it fits well! It's not snug at all. The camera compartment below sits quite loosely rather than being very tight and taut, so there is some leeway with the height of the interior. You can feel the camera if you push down on the compartment but there is substantial padding that will protect it even if knocked or bumped hard.

It does have a waist belt, but it's smaller and it's not meant to lift weight off. It's made for stability.

I have a question regarding the straps, how wide are the straps? can I still use my peak design clip?
Asked by: Amir
So the upper parts of the straps are about 3" wide and taper as they go down. So on the top parts of the straps it looks like the Peak Design Capture Clip won't fit, but if you position it lower on the straps it will.
