Lowepro 22L AW overview

  • 1Description

The pepper red Photo Hatchback 22L 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 18-105mm lens attached and two or three additional moderately sized lenses, flash, accessories as well as your iPad or tablet held safely within its own dedicated compartment.

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 2.1 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 22L AW reviews

    Photo Hatchback 22L AW Backpack (Pepper Red) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great mix use pack My favorite part about this bag is that is usable for more than carrying camera gear. Security is a big deal to me and this bag was well thought out with that in mind. The camera section is only accessible from the rear of the pack, the main compartment doesn't unzip the whole pack so gear can't fall out and the laptop compartment is tight-fitting making it harder to pull gear without someone not noticing. That being said this isn't a bag for someone who needs great organization or easy access to equipment. The Pepper Red Color is closer to orange incase you wanted a red bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this product I love this backpack. It has a generous storage area in the top half of the bag for personal items and plenty of room underneath for your camera gear. I will be using it for a Panasonic FZ1000 so will be heaps of room. I also have a Canon 6D and lenses and looking at the size of the camera storage, there is plenty of room for this camera plus a couple of lenses. Being Lowepro, it is extremely well put together and will not disappoint. I would highly recommend this backpack.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost there. I purchased this bag along with the Flipside Sport 15L AW. Of the two, this is the one I use least. Don't get me wrong, it is a great bag. The build quality is awesome, and I love the hatchback concept (only being able to access my gear from the back), but you are extremely limited to the amount of gear you can carry. The Hatchback 22L AW is slightly bulky and reminds me of the backpack I would wear in middle school or high school. There is a good amount of storage for personal belongings. This is a good backpack, I just wish there was a something available from Lowepro the combined the best of both worlds (the gear storage of the Flipside Sport 15L AW and the personal storage space of the Hatchback 22L)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure layout and makes a great present This bag was purchased for my daughter to carry her camera and other items she might want to take with her on a photo walk or hike. My daughter especially likes how the camera opening is next to her back when she's wearing the backpack. She's also said the rain covering has been really great as she's needed it a couple times. The rain covered worked perfectly and kept everything dry. She also likes how you can pull out the camera storage area and carry it separately from the backpack. It was useful when she was collecting samples and needed more storage space to carry them. The only improvement my daughter provided was she thought it would be nice if the pockets were deeper. All in all, my daughter absolutely recommends this backpack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL YOU NEED FOR A DAY OUT! After reviewing a lot of backpacks, I decided to buy the Photo Hatchback 22L AW Backpack (Pepper Red) by Lowepro because of its practical properties and compact size where you can fit everything you need for travel, hiking or a day out. Here I carry a Nikon d5100 with two lenses (18-55 & 55-200) a fish eye compact lens a full go pro kit with grip and time lapse kitchen clock spare batteries for both cameras, small tripod, 8 SD cards, cleaning kit, set of cables for both cameras and still have space for my travel documents, ipod, headphones, and spare sweatshirt or pants. Also, the all weather cover make this backpack ONE AMAZING PIECE OF GEAR ANY PHOTOGRAPHER MUST HAVE. Before making your pick check the Photo Hatchback 22L AW Backpack (Pepper Red) by Lowepro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Seems great. Haven't gotten to take it out anywhere yet. A little bigger than I expected. I didn't really look at specs. But still a good size to hold everything. I like that the lens/camera insert is in its own drawstring bag and removable so I could use in a different bag if I was inclined to do so. Seems to be plenty of room for jacket or extras to carry in top part. Insert seems to have enough room for my Nikon d7200 and 18-300 lens as well as 85mm and 35 mm lenses, but that's about all I can fit in there. I like the color very much too. I have the red/orange color.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Color is more of an orange than a red, that was a little disappointing since not a fan of orange, but I liked the bag so I kept it. I do feel my gear is safe and secure and love the extra room for water bottles and a roomy pouch for personal items and snacks. There is a small place to put my iPad, could not fit a laptop which can be disappointing for some, but hope they bring style that has that capability. over all this is a great bag, that doesn't look like a camer bag and is very comfortable to wear even with it filled up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack! I have been looking for a relatively small bag to use as a carry on in airplane, but also when being out on a casual photo hike. This bag is just great. You can fit a professional DSLR body (I have a D800 with a battery pack which is bigger than a D4 and it fits) and several lenses, a tablet, your books and what you need for the plane. The top compartment fits a rain jacket, a sandwich, etc if you're hiking. Plus it comes with a rain cover. Really love that backpack.
