Lowepro 200 AW overview

  • 1Description

The black Photo Sport 200 AW Backpack from Lowepro is a lightweight pack designed for heavyweight outdoor action and manufactured to handle a rugged trail race, mountain bike outing or photo trek up a local peak. Made from triple rip stop nylon, the Photo Sport 200 not only holds your DSLR with attached lens, but a flash as well in its dedicated Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamber side-access pocket. This Chamber compliments the dual compartment approach to the pack that permits you to carry both clothes, food and camera gear.

The Photo Sport 200 can instantly become a shooter's pack. Quickly rotate pack to the front, unzip the pocket, access your camera that is stored in shooting position, pull it out, get the shot, stuff it back inside and you're back on the trail ready to tackle the next pitch. For the hiking part, multiple attachment points on the pack permit you to secure everything from ski poles to jackets, hats, cell phones, keys or a decent-sized pack of trail mix to keep you going.

Adjustable shoulder straps and a padded waist belt keep it squarely on your back while a molded back pad offers more than sufficient airflow to keep you cool and comfortable on the trail. The water-resistant 70D nylon exterior keeps your contents dry but in case you get caught in a rain or snow squall, simply deploy the built-in rain fly that will encase the pack for even more protection. If you're a night person, you'll find reflective piping on the pack so you'll be able to be seen on the trail or road.

Additional front and side storage pockets will hold your maps, water bottles, gloves - whatever support gear you have. And speaking of water, there is also a hydration pocket that can hold an optional reservoir so you'll never have to worry about being thirsty on the trail. Backed by Lowepro's limited lifetime warranty, the Photo Sport 200 AW is well-named since it allows you to get out there on the trail to get the "photo", while also allowing you to engage in the serious pursuit of "sport".

Ideal carrying solution for trail running, mountain biking, snowboarding and other active outdoor pursuits
Dual compartment design offers ample space for personal gear and a camera kit
Improved durability for extreme activity
Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamber protects camera gear in a padded and secure compartment and helps prevent bouncing while you're in motion.
Side-access pocket allows you to quickly rotate pack to the front, unzip, un-cinch and access your camera
A hydration pocket provides storage and easy access from a hydration reservoir (not included)
Rated to hold personal items such as a hat, light jacket, trekking or ski poles, snack, cell phone, keys and more

    Lowepro 200 AW reviews

    Photo Sport 200 AW Backpack (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 104.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Functional for Active Photographers This pack does a great job filling that void between packs to haul camera gear and packs for active endeavors. Being hydration campatible is a huge plus eliminating the need to lug around water bottles. The space for the hydration bladder also holds a small computer when not being used making it great for the airport. This bag has easily carried my 7D with a 24-105 attached as well as a 70-200 f4. I can also fit lots of other gear for the back country. So far I have used this to mountain bike, travel through airports and hike the Arizona desert. I wil be taking it to the mountains soon and have great confoidence in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Backpack I needed a DSLR backpack small and compact enough for biking and urban hiking, with plenty of room for a change of clothes, snacks, and other non-photo gear, and without that awful photo bag look. This pack fits the bill exactly. It has a surprising amount of space, fits comfortably, and is attractive. The hydration compartment is a nice touch. I typically carry only one camera with attached lens, and occasionally one other lens. If you need a bag designed to carry and protect multiple lenses, flashes, and other accessories, this may not be the bag for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bag for the photographer who hikes! I used this bag on several hikes in Norway (including the famous Trolltunga) and it was perfect!! It held everything I needed (and more). It was really great that I didn't need to take the bag completely off every time I wanted to access the camera compartment. Plus the water pouch was perfect for my 1L bladder. The best part though was it is comfortable and the waist belt makes it so that all the weight is off you shoulder and feels basically weightless. Before purchasing it, I was worried that it might be too big for me because I'm short (5'1) but it fits great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Love Story I have fallen in love. After 10 days exploring the vast beaches, deep jungles, and confusingly dry rain forests of Costa Rica, I have fallen in love. This bag is the perfect fit for any day adventure. Enough space for a swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen for the beach. Or bug spray, a change of clothes and a packed lunch for two while hiking a dormant volcano. After a 6 hour hike and a few hour ATV ride I still felt like I didn't have anything on my back. My T4i camera and extra zoom lens was always dry, protected, and even invisible to the everyday thief with it's stealth ability to look like any old day pack. It even dooped a careful TSA agent. I only wish it was wider to fit my 15 inch MacBook Pro. But, you can't have everything.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great day pack This bag is not designed to carry all your camera equipment and shouldn't be considered by those who like to take a lot of equipment around with them. On a good day, I can fit 3 lenses and my camera in the padded section (which, after you consider the padded materials used, is about a third of the bag's total usuable space). This is a sports backpack. With that in mind, it is a great pack with easy access pockets and sections. It also has lots of straps and hooks for extras to clip on to. I've used it while out cycling and it holds all the extras (snacks, clothes, water bottles) that I need and is a good weight and size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great adventure backpack I use this pack mostly for mountain biking with my DSLR but it's great for hiking, snowshoeing or most any other day trips. It is a little large for being on the bike but it does the job when I want something more than a cellphone for taking photos. Good protection for the camera and 2nd lens and the easy side access is great for quickly getting shots. Plenty of room for normal supplies (spare tube, tools, etc), food and extra layers. Lots of adjustments to keep the weight balanced. Two minor complaints: the back air flow could use a little more cross ventilation and the cinch straps should be quick release to make loading the water bladder easier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME BAG - Fits MacBook Pro 15 Just got it today and already love it! I fit a Nikon D7000 with 18-105 lens, 10mm wide angle lens, and VS external flash (small) in the camera block alone! Cinch system is awesome and is super secure! Rest of the bag is just as sweet. Waterproof, cool look, and fits my body perfectly (I'm 5'9, wider frame). Straps need adjustment, as expected, but it fits perfectly. A lot of people say it's a LOT smaller than thought. Come on people, it's not a fanny pack size. It's a perfect sized adventure/outdoor/travel backpack. If you're a minimalist with gear (usually I'm not), you'll love it and if you're like me, you'll know what you truly need when you go out. NOTE - it won't fit a large lens (I tried a 150-500 mm Sigma lens, no go unless you go in the top of the bag). But my stuff is perfect since I don't usually use a battery grip, although I think it would still work. Here's how to fit a 15 inch computer (my MB Pro is perfect for this): 1) Uncinch the camera block (although it doesn't make a difference or not, just for getting the computer in originally 2) Open large top pocket and feel down with your hand - the outermost area runs for the entire bag 3) Slip the laptop in the outermost area (away from the user's back) and get it to go all the way down 4) Zip up the top and adjust the clips, and BOOYAH it's in securely

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for South America I just returned from a month in South America and this backpack was great. It did well climbing in the Andes and kept ladrones from stealing my gear. I got caught several times in flash floods and the protection is great. My only complaint is that the water bladder did not come with the pack and I was not able to use this feature on my trip. I stored a small acer computer in the area instead so it all worked out. I've had several other Lowepro's and this one does run a bit on the small side but that is what makes it feel so light and fluffy on my back.
