Summary: "I use it for my Digital SLR with 18-55mm lens and spare 55-200mm lens. With space for additional lens - but I use the space for snacks, and other small items. Strap on bottom is handy for attaching spare sweatshirt or rain jacket. Space for 2 water bottles - I use 1 for water bottle and the other for my cell phone. Be sure to loosen all straps before you put on.
Summary: Its great concept bag for hiking where you could carry two bottles of water in you camera bag. but the waist pack belt needs huge improvement. basically the top part of the bag leans forward and bottom of the bag gets squashed. In my waist it feels retarded. I sometimes think that it might be manufactured wrong. Just for testing I carried the bag upside down and it fit perfect on my waist.
Summary: "This is a really well made bag - it's durable and the interior is smartly constructed. Inside, I can fit my DSLR, an extra lens, filters, an extra battery, and a small digital video camera. All these items are easy accessible. The lone exterior pocket can hold any manuals, documents, or maps.
Summary: Excellent bag for serious photographers in the field. At the end of the day your back will thank you!!! Intelligent design. Cons: - No good space for small items such as the lens cleaner brush, for example - If you're carrying a large lens, then your speedlight will have no place to go...
Summary: I had been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted this bag. My mom was getting me one for Christmas. A lot of reviews I had read said it was too big (as in the straps didn't cinch down enough) and that it flopped around on smaller framed people. After going back and forth and not finding anything I liked as much as this bag, I ended up deciding to tell my mom to get me the Lowepro Inverse 200. I figured if I didn't like it, I could just send it back.
Summary: Although this will fit all my gear, I find it way to bulky. The adjustment straps don't stay put, they slide open and you have to keep adjusting them. When they come lose you will fear that your gear is going to fall off. As for it being bulky, it sticks out way to far. You can use it as an armrest. (it sticks out that far) The easy opening cover is not that easy.
Summary: The bag is great, I am using it during my sport events but... The waist lock opened up during my run when I was getting to the action position. They should get a lock like we have in the cars,it would much stronger. Because of that accident I started to use the shoulder strap with the waist one and ,the bag works much better that way for me. Otherwise it is build very well,protects my cameras very well. I have 2nd body w/my 200mm there,Canon 580 flash,batteries and card.
Summary: I purchased the Inverse 200 AW before a trip to Italy with my family. It held all of my electronic gear as a carry-on (SLR, 2 lenses, GPS, memory card holder, ipod and charger plus more). Once I arrived and emptied the non-camera gear, there was plenty of room for a small camcorder and my sunglasses so I didn't need a day-pack. I used it as a belt pack and shoulder bag depending on the location we were in and the folding flaps were quite useful there.
Summary: I bought this waist pack because my traditional camera bag was causing neck and back pain. This is an excellent product that provides comfort and security for my Nikon D80 and associated gear. It has a small compartment that permits me to carry either my clear or sun glasses as appropriate. During a recent trip to the Grand Canyon, I was able to move with complete freedom and assurance that my camera gear would remain secure. This is all upside and nothing bad.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Versatile
