Summary: Wow! This is probably the most adaptable big lens with body attached carrier I've ever used. I can load my D3 with my 200-400mm VR super telezoom attached into this baby and hike to the top of Kiliminjaro with it on my back. I can also fit my 500mm and my 600mm lenses in there with a body attached as well--just open the zipper and pull out the camera system and you're ready to shoot.
Pros: Fast Access to Camera, Great Tripod Carrier Too, Incredibly Configurable, Rugged Construction, Super Durable Materials
Summary: Traveling with a large lens (600 f/4) has always been a difficult task. On some of my shoots I would typically send the lens by conventional ground transportation at a cost of[$]each way. Over time this begins to add up, not to mention the inconvenience of having to send the lens several days before my planned trip.After researching several lens bags that according to the manufacture, fit into the overhead compartment of most major airlines I narrowed my selection to the...
Summary: Hold 500MM lens and teleconverter with camera body attached . This case is well padded to protect equipment. Fully adjustable and comfortable for back packing or just carry it on your shoulder with the detachable shoulder strap thats included.
Summary: I tried out the bag this last week on a trip to Bosque Del Apache in New Medico. It worked great and did a good job protecting my Nikon 400mm F2.8 lens during the trip. It is large enough so I can leave the camera on the lens, and having the backpack straps for carrying the lens is a huge plus over a single shoulder strap. I did not carry the bad loaded long distances, but the straps are very comfortable.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lightweight, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Weatherproof
Summary: Having used the 600Aw11 now for several trips out I would recommend this bag, really takes the weight of my 600mm & camera, and sits nice on one's back.It's not bulky or cumbersome and there is enough space in the pockets for what I wish to take along on a shoot.It did seem a bit fiddly at first to get the camera and lens into the bag, but after a couple of attempts one gets the hang of it, and the bag holds my gear very nicely.I have rated the bag 5 stars for...
Summary: This bag has 4 strong points from my point of view. For something capable of carrying a 600 f4 it is the cheapest option presently available, that I'm aware of. Secondly it is the lightest - which adds to carrying comfort. Thirdly it has a very comfortable back harness (not surprising given Lowe's heritage), which is adjustable for back length as well as in other dimensions.
Pros: "cheap", Adaptable, capacity - 600 f4, Comfortable, quick & easy to use
Summary: I considered the Viper, but thought this seemed more versatile and less geeky looking. I did not make the wrong choice and the Strap Jack measuring tool to get a perfect fit for your body is sheer genius.
