Excerpt: This is a sturdy and with strong support harness to support the weight. However, I wish it has more pockets outside the camera compartment so carrier can carry other non-equipment items, like a snack, etc. And I also wish it has the opening in the front. To access the camera, you have to lay down the bag to open the compartment which is awkward.
Excerpt: The Flipside 300 is a sturdy well made pack. Exactly the size that I was looking for... perfect for event photography...it will fit my D700 w/24-70 lens plus a 70-200 and a flash. It's low profile and fits well. There are two issues that bug me.... first the zippers on the 'flipside' do not go close enough to the bottom of the pack which makes it extremely difficult to access anything near the bottom.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Strong Construction
Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, Silly Mesh Gate On Pocket
Excerpt: I primarily wanted a bag that could house my D7000 with the battery grip on as well as store a couple of lenses and a speed light. The Flipside 300 does that well at an extremely competitive price. (Bought on sale.) Not the biggest fan of the rear opening but it was a great price/performance buy. I'm happy with it and it's very comfortable to wear.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction
Excerpt: A fan of hardcases I thought I would try the backpack. While the backpack is nicely streamlined it doesn't have the feel of strongly constructed pockets. Also wasn't crazy about the zipper pocket opening from the rear of bag, but could see the purpose of securing the bag while carrying it.
Excerpt: This bag is able to put my Canon 5DMKII with three objectives (include 200mm and 100mm (macro) all can be place without difficulties. Robust finitions Problem: It is necessary d' to remove the bag to extract the material : (
Excerpt: The inside is difficult to organize when having a Nikon 70-200mm lens and a 17-38mm lens with the Nikon D700. The pack will hold all that and two more lenses, but it is very difficult to get camera and lens out. Very disappointed in the Lowepro design of this bag. I am considering getting either the Lowepro Pro Rummer 200 AW or the 300 AW to replace this one. I have the Lowepro Micro Trekker 200 which I love, but my Nikon D200 rests in the back pack.
Pros: Access against your back, Comfortable, Strong Construction, Tripod-Monopod Holder
Cons: Difficult Reorganization, Hard To Access Equipment
