Lowepro 16L AW overview

  • 1Description

The pepper red Photo Hatchback 16L AW Backpack from Lowepro is an excellent choice for a day out in the field, walk along the boardwalk with the family or even a quick down and dirty gig. It's designed to hold your DSLR with an 18-55mm lens attached and two additional moderately sized lenses, flash, accessories as well as your iPad or tablet held safely within its own dedicated compartment. It is also designed to hold your GoPro Hero 3 camera, and accessories. 

The "wow" feature of this bag is that it comes with a removable camera box which, when removed, turns the pack into a full-fledged, empty pack that can be used as a daypack. The camera box comes with a storm flap for protection and two handles for easy removal. Load it beforehand, place it in the pack, and you're off. And, on days when you don't need it, just lift it out and the pack is ready for clothes, books, food, jacket or groceries.

Access is via a top loading zippered opening or its very handy side "hatch" for rapid retrieval of your camera when the shot appears. All the zippers are YKK for added durability. The 2.0 lb pack is comfortable with its adjustable backpack straps. This is an outdoor pack that is prepared for all weather eventualities since it contains Lowepro's All-Weather cover that can be rapidly deployed when the weather turns against you. The Photo Hatchback is made from strong 600D polyester and 210D nylon ripstop polyurethane-a combination made for the outdoor enthusiast. It is backed by Lowepro's lifetime warranty.

    Lowepro 16L AW reviews

    Photo Hatchback 16L AW Backpack (Pepper Red) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 200.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Laughably small It was included with my 5DMKIV purchase. It's hilarious that whoever thought to bundle the two together thought it was a good idea, but there's no way to fit the camera into this bag unless you remove ALL the separators and not put in a lens. I couldn't fit my EOS M with a 35mm L in this bag which should give you a good idea of how tight the compartment is. I think one could possibly squeeze in a basic DSLR and kit lens or at least the brochure depicts it as so. There's maybe one pro to it which is that for travel the only way to access the camera is through the back and works as a anti-theft measure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small bag. It is great, exactly as advertised. Points of improvement are: - It is not made for big tripods, I know. But even for small ones, there could be a small strap on the top side to help secure a tripod. Not sure just the deep mash pocket will be enough. - The waist belt could be a bit wider, so it felt more comfortable. And there could be a way to hide it inside the fabric, so it is not just hanging there when not in use. - If you use Full Frame, look into the 22L option. The 16L is just enough to fit a mid-size DSLR with a mid size lens + an additional lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I still prefer hiking packs. Got the pack with a camera purchase. I'm surprised at how big the bag is despite being small. The internal compartment can be opened up so the entirety turns into 1 big compartment. This single large compartment houses my Nikon 300mm F/2.8 VR II with TC attached and pro body while still allowing a couple lenses and second half size body to fit in next to it. I'll be using this for wildlife hiking with the previously mentioned setup. I gave it 4 stars because it's not as comfortable as my Hiking packs. It's not a fair comparison but some day I'm hoping a bag maker steps into a properly set up bag for carrying cameras on the trail.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but good This backpack is for small kits. I have a T2i and I can only fit a sigma 50-200 f4-5.6 (small lens) and a Sigma 17-50 f2.8 mounted on the body. There is only space for a few additional small items in the camera compartment like a battery. I put a speedlight in the top compartment and other odds in the front section. Even though, it's small, it fits great and securely. I can and do wear it riding bike and it stays in place. It's also easy to access the back panel like the flipside if you leave the waist belt on and just slide the bag around. If you carry minimal gear, this will work. If you have a pro body or large lenses, this just won't work. I like it though and for now, it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can hold a Canon 70D and two lenses I bought this to use with my Canon 70D with the 18-55mm kit lens. In the padded compartment I can fit the 70D, a 28mm lens, and a 70-210mm lens. I use the pockets in the upper section to hold things like the charger, filter, and cleaning supplies. I like the fact that the camera compartment is only accessible from the back of the pack. It seems well made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Camera Backpack This bag is great for smaller day hikes. It easily holds my camera, long lens, and charger with space to spare. The top compartment has enough room for several water bottles, snacks, maps, first aid kit and anything else I need. And although I do not plan on it, the bag offers a padded compartment for an ipad shaped device as well. The rain shield is a bit strange with how it connects to the shoulder straps. I have yet to be caught out in the rain with it, but I see it does not cover the entire bag. So if ever I were to need it, I will take extra care in making sure everything stays dry. Over all, an awesome camera bag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my DSLR and MacBookAir 11 Great backpack, rather small but I can carry all my stuff when I travel : 1 canon EOS 6D, 3 lenses (24-105mm + 50mm + 14mm) and 1 macBookAir 11 in the external pocket. The size of this external pocket is just perfect, it's just the size of the computer which is very well protected (pocket is padded) and above all it's very easy to take out (very useful during customs controls ....)And finally I still have a compartment for various stuff (wallets, charger, books ...), with zipped pockets inside.The desciption doesn't mention that the macbookair can fit inside, even the staff at B&H said it couldn't, but it really does !For me, it's just the pefect backpack for traveling !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple complexity This has been one of the most amazing action cameras I've ever purchased. Though the video quality tends to be compatible to the Hero 4, it's leaps and bounds ahead of the Hero 3+ Silver. The video stabilization makes a huge difference when I'm mountain biking (be sure to flip the camera upside down if you're wearing a chest mount). 4K video makes my time lapses ridiculously clear. The main reason I like this camera is the user interface. It's very simple to use, and I don't have to spend so much time connecting my phone to set up a shot. It's faster to do everything now. I had a little trouble connecting my phone when I wanted to, but I just reset the connection from the very beginning and now it works great! My shots look very professional, and now people think I'm cooler than my twin brother
