    Lowepro 200 AW reviews

    Vertex 200 AW Backpack (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of space at a good price. I got this bag to travel out of the USA. I had no problems meeting the carry-on requirements, and it can store a lot of equipment. The space for the laptop was not that roomy, but it can fit a 15 laptop computer. The laptop was easy to take in/out at the airport for screening. I only wished that the laptop was in the back of the bag, closer to the body. The bag is comfortable to carry around, but it is heavy from the start. After adding my equipment, it was 40 pounds. If you are a small person, you might have some difficulty with it. I would recommend it, and only time will tell if the construction is as good as it feels.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lowepro quality, one step further! I use this pack to carry along a 15 laptop when traveling internationally. I carry 1 or 2 pro DSLR body and between 3 and 7 lenses at any one time. This bag is deceptively large and allows you to pack a lot of gear and carry it with comfort. Extra quality and tough built, you know this is a bag that will last and will protect your gear from water, dust and shock. I also have the 300, I tend to use the 200 more, pack enough and it's size is just perfect for airline, though the 300 is too, the 200 is much less conspicuous. Only thing I would have liked to see would have been a slightly larger laptop section and larger front pockets for small items.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Bag Does All I originally bought the Lowepro Fastpack 250 and hated it. The Fastpack was so difficult to get into. Now I have the Vertex 200 AW pack that holds everything with ease and doesn't take a combination to get into. It has more than enough room for my Nikon D300-S with Nikon 70-200 f2.8, Nikon 18-200 and Nikon 105 f 2.8 Macro. There is still room for another camera body and more lens. I read in one review that it was too large for an airplane carry on... not true. I fly often and this will be my carry on. This is a great travel bag that doubles as my storage bag and hiking pack... who says one bag can't fit every occation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than I Had Hoped I really did my research on backpacks. I reviewed most of the big companies (Tamrac etc.) I bought a couple and either kept or returned them and none were as good as the Vertex 200. I really struggled with the choice between the 200 and the 300. I wanted a lot of space but I didn't want to look like I was going for a space walk. The Vertex 200 has fit my needs nicely. I can fit two bodies (7D & 5DMk3) plus my lenses (16-35, 24-70, 70-200) and flash with plenty of room for extra toys and accessories. I have walked all over San Francisco with this pack and it is comfortable and durable. It is a little heavy empty but worth the weight considering what I'm carrying around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Build and great capacity Was able to carry two large FX SLR digital bodies with grips along with a huge selection of lenses and filters and my 13 laptop. It was the max size to fit in the overhead on my recent trip to France. It is well laid out and even with all my equipment I was able to move to various locations in Paris traveling on the Metro. The included rain cover hidden away in a pouch is a nice addition that could come in handy if trapped in rain on a long trek. The only downside is the cumbersome straps when trying to carry it with the handle, maybe a later version could come with some sort of attached pouch for those.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bag.. I have had this bag in almost every element and it has held up to it all snow, mud, rain and sand. I have thrown this bag off of a moving snowmobile and rolled it out of my truck on accident and it has protected my cameras and all the other equipment inside. I wear this bag full with 2 bodies and 5 lens's and carry it 4 miles fishing with no discomfort. Great bag..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from roomy and comfortable I love this backpack. I've used a Lowepro Mini Trekker AW for years and have been very happy with it so when I needed to upgrade to a larger pack, I wanted to stick with Lowepro. I like the all weather cover and the two-way adjustable shoulder straps. The two outside flip pockets are great for quick access to all those little accessories you carry and the inside clear pockets are bigger than you find in packs by other makers. I picked this pack for it's 6.5 inch inner depth that allows you to carry many lens upright thus freeing up more space for your larger lenses. The only negatives I have found with this pack are 1) the webbing that covers the padding on the back traps tons of sand after setting the pack down on a beach and 2) the waist belt, although very comfortable, does not detach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Untested, but so far so good. I bought this backpack to use when we travel out to Rocky Mountain National Park this year. Previously I had (and still have) a Flipside 300 which has been great, but does not have enough room for all my stuff. I can easily get all my gear in the backpack: D300, 80-200 F2.8, 105mm macro, 18-70, SB-800, Sekonic light meter, Lee filter holder system, rocket blower, cords, charger, and all the extras with no problem. Some mentioned that the zippers zipped hard, but I didn't think they were bad. There are all kinds of adjustments that can be made to make it fit just right for you. It is heavy with all the gear in it, but I guess that is what you have to expect if you are going to carry all your stuff.
