Lowepro 24L AW III Reviews

Great all purpose camera bag

By Richie
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-04

This is the perfect bag to spend a day out on the trail. I was after a bag that could carry more than a camera so I could do longer hikes with my family. This was it. I originally had the 15l but that one proved to be too small. This bag holds my Nikon z5 with a 24-70 f/e.8 lens, an extra battery, a filter kit, and a tripod. After that, there is still room for snacks, water, and extra layers. The design is intuitive and adaptable with the included accessories. A great bag worth keeping in your kit.

Lightweight Hikers Bag

By Brett
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-30

Every outdoor/landscape photographer ends up with several bags. It comes with the territory. But I don't always need every lens I own and the 200-500mm on deck, and for those long 6-12 mile hikes I might even need a few things for myself, like food, supplies, and clothing. Add to that a full frame mirrorless, 2 lenses, and a tripod, the hydration bladder, and you're soon realizing this bags potential. It keeps you light and on course while avoiding that 35 pound weight of indecision on your back all day. -Let's be honest, when was the last time you used ALL the 5 lenses you brought while on that single hike? Simplify a bit and enjoy the ride. Its made well, yet there are a few things that aren't tip top, but I think in the name of weight its a fair trade off for me. I had the first version of this backpack and regretted giving it away for years. I use a Nikon Z6 with a smallrig l bracket on permanently. A capture clip means I need another small QR plate, making the footprint of the Z6 body much larger than original, yet the 24l compartment still works fine. I typically carry a zoom or 2 lenses with this kit on my motorcycle/hiking adventures consisting of a nikon s 24-70 f4, tamron 35-150mm 2.8-4, or a nikon 18-35mm 3.5-4.5. I think if i wanted to, I could carry my 70-200 in the main compartment above, but I have bags better suited and more purpose built for my big teles.

Awesome, narrow bag

By Brett
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-27

I really wanted to keep this backpack, but it is too narrow for a Sony A7 and a Tamron 150-500mm lens. As a wildlife photographer, I really wanted to keep my long lens ready to go in my bag. Fortunately, the Photo Active BP 300 is a tiny bit wider and works for my use. This backpack is more suited for hiking and has more storage for hiking gear than the Photo Active BP 300. On the flip side, it's at least 1 narrower and has significantly less built-in storage for camera gear.

Tight Fit for DJI RC Pro

By Jesse
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-24

Practical day pack for carrying drone and camera. Recommend that sizing of drone pouch be reconsidered for the new DJI RC Pro controller. It's tight when used with my DJI Air 2S. Suspect won't fit when you have a Mavic 3. Otherwise a nice piece of kit.

Great daypack

By Aaron
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-19

I'm writing this review mostly to say that the camera section holds my Canon R5 with 24-105 f4 attached, and there's still room for my 14-35 f4. There's not much room to spare, but there's no bulging either, and this arrangement leaves the entire upper section free. IMHO, this makes it a great daypack for a lot of people, myself included.

The perfect hiking photo-backpack

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-17

I have a few photo backpacks--the F-Stop Loka UL, the Vanguard Veo Active 46 and now the Lowepro PhotoSport 24L. Each fulfills a different function, though I have used all for hiking with different kit. The PhotoSport is by far the most comfortable to wear and its flexibility for carrying the camera is outstanding. It is a bit small in the camera compartment, but perfect for those times that you want to only carry one camera and a couple of lenses. It is my go to for day hiking with basic gear and a few extraneous essentials.

Great backpack

By Alestair
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-02

I will not say what everyone else has said. It's a great bag, it's 24L total. The camera compartment included is the same as GearUp Creator Box L II which is nicer IMO. But the velcro of the bag door wouldn't connect to the Creator Box L II since the inside door material is nylon. It doesn't have a laptop compartment but it can hold a 13 in the water bladder compartment with a sleeve for extra protection. I would recommend using this with a mirrorless camera, it would have plenty of room for accessories. If used with a bigger DSLR, of course it will work but would take up room in the compartment. So far I love it and it's a great travel companion and very light.

Very good bag, but could be a Great One

By Anatoly

I was a hiker before i was a photographer, so i'm very judgmental when it comes to backpacks, and finding the right backpack is an endless search for the small things that make my life easier while i'm out there. this is my 2nd lowepro bag, and 3rd if you count my 55 lowe-alpine trekking backpack. I'll start with the good: the bag is very well made i love the external mesh pocket and wish more camera bags had it i love the internal dual mesh pockets, they really help organize the small accessories. i love the fact that my asus m16 gaming laptop fits in the so called 13 laptop/hydration pocket, which was a really pleasant surprise. i love that i can reach back with my hand and get my camera (with mounted lens) out without moving the bag at all, take a picture and have it back inside the bag. no more dangling camera on a strap. then there's the neutral: the back panel is fairly convenient, but could use more padding or a sturdier plastic insert (non removable unfortunately) the cube fits a small kit - for me it's an R5, 85 1.2 and an extra 35 2.0 or 20 3.5 or some other small lens or extra battery. i can easily get the camera in and out without even removing a strap, but getting to the other stuff requires at least swinging the bag over one shoulder. the cube also feels a bit soft or flimsy, probably nice when it's against my back, but less nice if you put the bag on rocks or the like with too much force. there's also some dead space all around the gear cube - above, blow, front and back. you lose about 1-1.5L of volume there, though this may change if i fill the bag more. i could always stuff a scarf or gloves or some small accessories there, but when i don't need them it's useless The pull to open/close system instead of the regular string is a nice idea, but it requires a lot more force/effort than working a regular drawstring without adding any real convenience. I find the extra strap+pouch kit that comes with it fairly useless. might work as a single-bag solution for some, but i just put peak design tabs on all my gear anyway and use PD quick release straps when i want to turn a bag insert into a camera pouch. the bad: to be honest this is not the bag i wanted, but the best i've found to fit the bill. I wish it came in 30L or 35L size, with the lowepro gearup XL insert as a default, with adjustable straps, thicker removable waistbelt, larger side opening so i could fit a camera with a mounted 70-200 in it (it does fit the RF70-200 mounted on the camera, but if the gear insert was wider it'd fit EF70-200's or EF100-400's or slightly longer lenses. I also wish they made the top part so very slightly wider (about 1 more) so the lowepro gearup XL would fit inside standing up, that way i could configure the bag to take more gear or just get more organization on the top part. I wish this bag had an internal aluminum frame or some less-flexible plastic as the back panel, that way i could take way more gear in this very nicely compact form factor, and have proper weight distribution, and c'mon lowepro, you guys make hiking bags, you know what i'm talking about. I also hate that the water bladder pocket is between the back padding and the plastic insert, meaning that the shape of the bladder will alter the shape of the back panel and your support won't work properly. I hope the next version would take some inspiration from Tenba or Wandrd or Shimoda and let us have some collapsible 2nd water bottle/tripod pocket on the door side - i mean if you let me take out the cube and use the bag as just a bag - why can't i take 2 bottles? Same goes for taking the external tripod hanging pocket we can find in the mindshift rotation series - it's really annoying to have to choose between beverages and tripods, especially during fall or winter when sticking a thermos on one side and the tripod on the other has you covered for day hikes. conclusion: this is a great bag for what it is - day hikes with some camera gear and some general items, clothing, food etc., it can fit a ton of stuff in a fairly organized manner for a hiking daypack, with convenient access, to both parts, or it can be configured(via more inserts in the top compartment) to carry more gear that you'll reach when you take it off. something like drones or flashes or whatever people take that they don't immediately need, but use when they take the bag off. I'm not sure i'd take it on the longer routes, but it should be fairly comfortable on short or medium routes.

Instead of attaching the tripod on the side pocket, can a tripod be attached externally at the bottom of the backpack? The reason asked because what if I utilize the side pocket for the drinking bottle, something like a hydro flask. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
By default, there is no provided hardware that really facilitates attaching a tripod to the bottom of the bag. If your tripod is small enough, there is likely enough room in the front pouch to fit a small travel tripod, or when tightened, 2/3 legs of a bigger travel tripod.
