Summary: Mine is not an "AW" but having owned it for >10 years I feel a review is appropriate. I bought it originally to use with an SLR system (FM2n and AIS lenses) I was 10 years younger then and what seemed like a heavy system (3 or 4 lenses from 20 - 200mm) no longer does. This bag comes close to perfection BUT and it's a big BUT, the harness is awful, as someone else notes.
Excerpt: This rucksack is in my opinion just the right size. You can easily fit your camera, 2-4 other lenses or flashguns and extra batteries and memory cards in it, and still have room left for you wallet, a book and some chocolate or a water bottle.
Lowepro Mini Trekker AW review by the_camera_poser
31 December 2007
Summary: We have had this bag for a little over a year, and it has been used extensively. I have been rather disappointed with it. The padding within the outer walls has lost shape and buckled considerably, the velcro is starting to get lots of strings and wear on it, and when stored the weather shield causes the inside bottom of the pack to bulge into the main compartment.
Pros: Roomy, rain fly
Cons: Thin straps, uncomfortable, the extra pouch area on the outside should be bigger, rainfly causing bulging in main compartment
Summary: Like you, I was at my local camera store looking at all the various offerings wondering what to buy. Fortunately, a professional photographer was in the store on that day and he shared his experiences with me to my advantage. He pointed out all the advantages of the available products and then recommended this product. I then personally looked at each product at the store and agreed that this one best fits my need base on the use of my equipment.
Pros: Perfect size, light weight, good compartment configuration
Summary: This is an excellent backpack. It carries enough stuff for an intermediate photographer can carry enough gear for a good long trip. It is well padded and solidly stitched. I have used it for nearly a year without visible wear. Highly recommended!
Cons: This is an excellent backpack. It carries enough stuff for an intermediate photographer can carry enough gear for a good long trip. It is well padded and solidly stitched. I have used it for nearly a year without visible wear. Highly recommended!
Summary: I've had this bag for 2 years and love it. All of my equipment lives in it. I have a smaller bag that I take for short trips but "home" is this bag. Pluses: * The AW system is nice, easy, and convenient. Well worth the extra price and more reliable than an add-on system like a bag. * Endless configurations and places to put stuff. More often my problem is finding where I put it. * More spacious than it's size would make it appear.
Summary: I have had this bag for over 1 year, Currently it holds my 30D connected to my canon 70-200 2.8 L , plus a canon 400 5.6L, Tamron 2.8 28-75, Canon 580ex with strobobounce, 1.4x canon extender, batteries, memory cards, and what ever else I decide to throw in the front pocket. right now it's weight about 20 pounds and I don't think twice about throwing over my back and taking it with me on a hike.
Conclusion: Hållbarhet: 5 Bekvämlighetsfaktor: 5
Jag har nyligen inhandlat min och blev förvånad över dess kapacitet. I min så har jag utan att fylla den till totala bristningsgränsen fått ned. En Nikon D200, 70-200 2,8 VR, 17-55 2,8, Sigmas 150 2,8 macro, 50 1,4, TC 17E, Nikon SB 800. Dessutom så är alla motljusskydd förutom 50.ans medräknade i själva huvudfacket, 50:ans motljusskydd har jag i ett av de övriga facken. en i mitt tycke ganska så skaplig stuvningsmöjlighet.
Pros: Liten men ändå rymlig, skapligt bekväm, relativt sett billig, många olika fack för förvaring, regnskyddad.
