Excerpt: I ordered this item online and totally mis judged the size. It came in a bigger box and the bag was not as compact as I thought. I ended up getting a smaller camera bag that just fits my camera (w/ 18-135mm lens) a 50mm lens and a flash.
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....
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Strong Construction

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.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction

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.
Pros: Access against your back, Comfortable, Strong Construction, Tripod-Monopod Holder
Cons: Difficult Reorganization, Hard To Access Equipment
Excerpt: I do like this bag but there are a few things that I would change. I can store my camera body plus three lenses and accessories and comfortably carry it all around in this bag but the lid of the main compartment can get in the way even when fully unzipped and the interior compartments have limited...
