Summary: Quality very good, very comfortable, when arrived from B&H, box looked huge, opened it up I can just squeeze my D200 with grip, and Tamron 17-50lens down, add a 70-300vr, one tiny compartmentfor extra batt, and a couple of very small items, good thing I don't plan to carry a flash, I'd have to put it in my hip pocket. I've purchased many differant bags Lowepro, tamrac, domke this is the worst lowepro I've ever had. I use it but I don't like it!!!!!
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Weatherproof
Summary: Lowepro says this bag is "ideal for the outdoor photo enthusiast and professional." Well, leave out the professional. With a Canon 5D, 24-105L lens, 200mm f2.8L lens, 580EX flash, 1.4x teleconverter, extension tube, and accessories, the bag sags badly. No matter how tight the side stabilizer straps and belt are, this load makes the bag sag/angle away from my body more than 45 degrees.
Summary: I bought this Lowepro Inverse 200 after reviewing several different bags on line and visiting two local photo stores. Neither stores had the bag in stock yet, so I took a chance and ordered it from B&H. The bag is nicely made and looks durable. Almost all the photos at the Lowepro site and elsewhere show the bag being used as a beltpack (the name Lowepro uses) without the shoulder strap. That is exactly what I was looking for.
Pros: Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Weatherproof
Cons: Requires Shoulder Strap, Sags With Any Weight, Uncomfortable Strap
Summary: I primarily do family, event and nature photography. I've been looking for the beltpack that would allow me to travel relatively light but still carry my 70-200 zoom. I prefer the beltpack approach for doing this. Seeing the release of the Lowepro Inverse series left me with hope based on description and my general experience with Lowepro bags. This bag however did not meet my expectations.
Pros: Good Protection, Lightweight, Weatherproof
Cons: Does not wear easily, Not Enough Pocket Room
