It's sturdy but not roomy

  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, Too Small

great potential but not perfect

  • 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: If you are not a pro photographer and want a comfortable backpack to bring not so many stuff with you it would fit perfect. The only thing to regreat is the lack of a rain cover.

Solid product.

  • 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

Not a fan of backpacks

  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Streamlined
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, Opening in back

Good but not Great

  • Excerpt: This is an OK case but I prefer traditional style cases. Camera items are harder to get to and the case does not hold as many items as you would think.

Hard to Get Gear In and Out

SisQLady, B&H Photo
23 March 2012
  • 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
