Too big for this woman hiker

CourtShot, B&H Photo
2 January 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a well made pack with great design and thoughtful layout. However, it is too big for this woman hiker/photographer. The pack hangs on waist/lower back in an awkward manner - even after numerous adjustments. I already cut off the tags so I can't return it. It's a wonderful pack for average/large sized photographers.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Stylish, Well Padded
  • Cons: Bulky

  • Excerpt: I got this as a strobist rig. It barely holds a couple of strobes, 2 lenses and a back. The tripod straps on the bottom are a nice touch. The interior is OK, but the external pockets are a puzzling disappointment. I don't know what they were thinking when they designed the pockets.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Accessible Equipment, Well Padded
  • Cons: Poor pocket design

returned it immediately

  • Excerpt: The Inverse 200 AW Beltpack was returned immediately without even using it. As soon as I actually strapped it on I knew it was much too big to hike with. Also, I was not happy with the side bottle holders being placed under or inside the straps. I will try something a little smaller next time. Other than that it looked like it was very well made. I have owned Lowepro items before and was always very happy with the quality.

Not so bad

  • Excerpt: Hard to find a better waist bag as I can't use a shoulder bag! However, it is bit too small (can't contain a Canon 5D with a battery grip!), is has not enough pockets, the belt clip is not so secure and the strap is unconfortable. The manufacturer has improvement appropriatenesses!
  • Pros: Good Product
  • Cons: Not Enough Pocket Room, Unconfortable Strap, Unsecure Belt Clip

Very good bag if you are not a woman

All weather cover needs improvement

JacoJazz, Adorama

  • Excerpt: The all weather cover lacks drainage holes. So, in a heavy rain, water will accumulate in the bottom of the cover, like a full diaper, and soak the bottom of the camera bag. I imagine a couple of well placed gromets would fix the issue.Otherwise, the pack works well for hiking, especially if you have to also carry a back pack. I agree with other reviewer, a loaded pack will tend to tilt away from your body. I used the shoulder stap to alleviate this issue.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Well Padded
  • Cons: Weather Cover Flawed

Good, but not perfect

Adsy, B&H Photo
23 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought it for an upcoming overseas trip. What I like about it is, that it fits my Canon 5D Mk II with 24-105mm L attached, my Canon 17-40mm f4 L, Canon 50mm f1.4, Canon 85mm f1.8, 77mm polariser, 58mm ND, Canon 500D close up lens, Lenspen, Giottos blower, and cable release. So, I can get more in it than some other reviews have suggested. One complaint though, is the location of the D-Rings which are at the rear of the bag and very close together.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Well Padded
  • Cons: Slightly Flawed

Not bad, not great

  • Excerpt: Takes a while to make comfortable. Better than having shoulder straps while hiking. Difficult to spin around waist to access camera and lens.
  • Pros: Well Padded
  • Cons: Not Stylish

Perfect size but needs shoulder strap

viaduck, B&H Photo
16 March 2011
  • Excerpt: I needed a waist/fanny bag to fit my digital SLR (Canon 5D) for when I go hiking. I love it's size and fit but... I gave this bag three stars because the belt, while comfortable, just won't secure tight enough to support the bag when it's full. I had to use another strap of my own as a shoulder support. Fortunately the bag has two plastic loops to accommodate a strap.

Doesn't hold what it should for the size

27 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Like all Lowepro this is a well built pack. The design is a little strange with the the front pouch attached almost like a second bag but I did not have the sagging problems others did. I have a T2i with the kit lense, a telephoto converter, 70-300mm lens and hood, 4 filters, a spare battery, and a remote switch in it and it is completely maxed out.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Well Padded
  • Cons: Bulky, Poor Use of Space
