    Lowepro 300 reviews

    Vertex 300 AW Backpack is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from False dimensions I bought this bag over the Tamrac ones because of the depth, the comprable tamracs are 6.25 deep while this claims 6.5 deep. After receiving the bag and measuring it, only at the top of the main compartment is it 6.5 deep. At the bottom of the bag its is as shallow as 5 :( pretty disappointed about it, since had the bag been 6.5 deep the whole way I could fit more of gear in there. Also the water resistant zippers are peeling already (the rubber). Other than that its a good bag, I wish they would have just gotten over the skinny long front pockets and just put one nice big one with an organizer on it. Wish the hip pads were optional.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for This is a very well built and well designed case. It IS large and reasonably heavy when totally loaded, but there is no way to carry a 15+ inch laptop and two DSLRs without being large. I tried another brand and it would not work. You need the vertical height for a Canon 40D or a RebelXT with aux Battery holder. This successfully fit in the overhead bin on my trip. It would be marginal for a 17 - and it needs to be a thin one - like the new Dells, but a 15 fits pretty easily. I am a tad over 6 foot and was able to adjust the harness so it was quite comfortable standing in long lines at the airport. You pretty much have to set the unit down to access equipment, but again that is the name of the game with this much equipment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile & Comfortable i got this backpack for bushwhacking around the BC coast and it is excellent. It takes all my gear, including the Nikon 200-400mm F4 and fits on my back comfortably and stays in place thanks to the waist and chest straps. If there is one small complaint, the two small side pockets aren't big enough to hold a water bottle and one hanging from the bag isn't very practical in the bush. But, there is a water bottle holder that can be added to the system I believe, but I haven't found or got one yet. The Tripod support is a good idea and helps to prevent slipping as you're walking around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a backpack that fits! It's not easy being 6'4 with most camera backpacks. I have owned a few before this one and have always found them to be too short making for an uncomfortable experience. The Vertex 300 AW was a perfect fit. I loaded it with plenty of gear including a tripod and set out for the day. I never had any discomfort and the pack has many adjustment options. To sum it up: All Day Comfort!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, great storage But... man is it big. Packed full I could barely squeeze it under a commercial flight seat... couldnt fit it at all in the overhead. but... if you like the backpack feel it rocks. durable as can be and just as waterproof as it claims... trust me. Mine fell out the door face down into a flooded street and almost completely submerged. My gear was ALL good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, Big Pack I bought this pack because I needed to haul a bunch of gear on shoots. It does just that. I pack 2 D300's (with battery packs), a 80-200mm zoom, 17-55mm, 18-200mm, 12-24mm wide and a 10.5mm fisheye, 3 SB800 flashes and my FreeXWire transmitters and it fits. Being a back pack be sure your muscles are up to it. Great Pack for hauling alot of gear. That is what it's made for and it delivers on that. If you want a BIG back pack this is one to consider. I am satisfied because it does what I need it to. The new smaller waist straps are nice. Wish they were removable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! Have been using LowePro bags for years - they have always had great products, and this is no exception. I had a Rover AW 2 for traveling and it was nice, but I needed something more. This pack offers a lot of room, enough for my 2 pro SLR bodies, lenses, and most of everything I will need on a trip. It's even got a great set of shoulder straps and hip stabilizers for extended use. They are really beefy, and distributes the weight very well. As a plus, they can even be zipped up so none of the straps and lines will get in your way when they're wrapped up. I travel a lot, and I never like to keep any of my photo equipment in checked bags. This bag offers all the room I need, and it's just small enough so to meet carry-on requirements with most airlines. As usual, the materials they used here is top notch, even the zippers are the heavy duty water proof/resistant kind. I'm impressed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost too big to carry I packed two pro camera bodies, three lenses, three flashes, two quantum packs, three pocket wizards, spare batteries, cables, card readers, 17 macbook pro, tripod, filters etc etc etc in this bag. The only problem with it is that it takes too much! Once had it packed, I could hardly lift it. However, I managed to carry it on to a return domestic flight (with practically everything bar the cameras, lenses & laptop on my hold luggage) - not sure how it would fare internationally, I think it is too big. I then strapped it to the back of a motorbike for 9 days of touring (in all weathers) & brought everything back home safely. It's strong & usefully with backpacking straps that tuck behind a zipped layer, plus an all weather cover (that I think has been made to cover the wrong side, but I made it work) & the zips & attachments are all robust. If you need a large bag that can then just be carried, this is the one!
