Summary: After many years of simply finding the Lowepro case that was the right size and just ordering it, and relying on Lowepro quality, what a surprise when I received this case. It is very much noticeably lighter and flimsier than any other Lowepro case I ever had, and the quality of the outer material seems much cheaper and thinner. The overall padding is also much less than before.

Summary: In my photo business I'm always looking for bags that meet my needs. I just hate big over sized bags when a small one would suffice. This bag is fantastic if all you want is plenty of space in a small bag. I recently took it on a 10 day trip and was more than happy with it. My business partner liked it so much he also bought one.
Summary: I am a new photography student so everything is a new experience. We were told to make sure we get a bag with lots of padding and Lowepro was a suggested brand offering those features. My bag holds a my big camera, a 50mm and short zoom lens, an SB600 flash, card reader, lens cleaner, eye glasses, eight batteries in holders, several cards, and the owners manuals for the camera and flash. There are two little side pockets for cell phone and chewing gum.
Summary: Perfect sized bag for the Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-70mm lens. Compartments reconfigure easily so I can put the camera sideways instead of lens down first. Wished the bottom was harder though.
Summary: I needed a bag for those times when I wanted to carry a subset of my camera gear, i.e. camera with lens, a spare lens, external flash and miscellaneous (extra batteries, CF cards, etc.) This bag fit the bill, it is just the size I wanted, has the right amount of storage space, lots and lots of pockets and other storage, a super comfy handle on top and is made to slip over the handle of a rolling suitcase.
Summary: Before selecting this bag, I did several days of research of alternatives. This bag was a perfect match for my Olympus 500 DSLR, two lenses, flash attachment, spare batteries, and a number of accessories. The rain cover was a key decision-maker for the Lowe brand. Of special note is the number of external pouches to hold spare memory cards and flash batteries.
Summary: This bag is very well constructed out of quality materials. Whatever you put in this bag, you can bet that it is well protected, both from getting banged around, and from the elements. It currently carries my camera with an 18-105mm lens attached, a 70-300mm lens, a flash unit, slave cable for the flash, and several other smaller items. The pockets/pouches, etc are well placed and once fully loaded, I can get to anything in it quickly and easily.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Great Design, Strong Construction, Well Padded
