Perfect-unless you're too tall

a birder, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm giving this backpack five stars even though I had to return it. The pack is very sturdy yet lightweight, is well designed, and had room for my Nikon D5300 with a Tamron 150-600mm lens attached (after making some adjustments to the interior dividers.) The name 'Flipside' name means that when wearing the pack with the hipbelt on you can shrug off the shoulder straps, rotate the pack from your back to your front, and access your gear from the back of the bag without...
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Flipside Opening, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: Has just the right amount if space. I can fit 2 camera bodys, 3 lenses and more. I really live that the zipper to open the bag is against my back when on so no one can unzip my stuff.. Thank you Lowepro for such a great idea!!

Great Backpack

  • Excerpt: I have used this backpack a few times since it arrived. I love how spacious it is and it is extremely comfortable to wear while shooting. It is lightweight so it doesn't add to the weight of my heavy gear. I like the functionality of the flipside option, but I do wish that the bag opened a little more fully, though I don't know that is a design option due to the purpose and functionality of the bag. So far I am more than pleased and plan to use it almost exclusively.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Spacious

The Perfect Backpack

Mr. Bill, B&H Photo
3 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I am glad I chose this backpack by Lowepro. I have experienced using the bag during major sporting events and find it highly practical. It accommodated two 35mm SLR bodies and many, many lenses. The rear access makes it extremely convenient. In addition, it is very comfortable to wear when fully packed. Awesome purchase...

Nice Bag But Not Perfect

Bill, B&H Photo
7 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm going to give 4 stars, but it's definitely barely 4. Many people complain about the access to the main compartment being on the side facing your back. This is actually why I chose the bag. In Europe, a pickpocket can get into your pack without you feeling a thing. This bag eliminates that threat. The green color doesn't scream camera bag. It holds as much stuff as my larger Lowepro bag and its size is kind of deceiving. It's well constructed.
  • Pros: Roomy
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment

Great Bang for your Buck

NC Hiker, B&H Photo
7 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I Was looking for a bag that would stand up to the harsh trails I take most of the time. And I found it with this bag. I had a flipside 300 previously and quickly out grew it. So I looked at its big brother the 400. It has more then enough space for all my camera gear and trail gear I need for a long day of hiking. And all the padding is great to have while wearing it for 8 or 9 hours of the day. All around a great bag for a even better price.
  • Pros: Durable, Great Padding, Lightweight, Rain Cover
  • Cons: Tripod Holster

First New Backpack in years

North Quabbin Wanderer, B&H Photo
7 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I do frequent day hikes for nature photography. This bag works out to be a perfect size. A bigger bag would just be more weight and bulk. I generally carry my camera ready to shoot anyway. So that saves room inside. My equipment includes Canon 70-200, 100-400, 100 macro, 18-55 kit, flash and 1.4 extender. And all spare batts and cards. I've seen complaints about access while wearing. It has not been a problem for me. Not putting small items on the bottom solves this.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Plenty Of Room For Gear, Very Comfortable, Well Organized
  • Cons: Needs Better Tripod Mount
