Excerpt: I outgrew a Lowepro Adventura 170 and stepped up to the Nova 180AW for the additional space. The All Weather protection was a welcome bonus. I found the added pockets very beneficial. I can now store and carry all my (current!) equipment in one bag.
Excerpt: I bought this case as a step-up (in size) from the Lowepro Toploader 65 AW. The Toploader's inside compartment was able to handle my Nikon D40 with the 55-200 zoom lens attached, the 18-55 lens, and a Giottos Rocket Air Blaster (a must have), but without any spare room.
Excerpt: The Lowepro Nova 180 AW camera bag is a bit of a ‘tardis” in as much as it seems a lot bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. It describes itself as being suitable for one DLSR and a bunch of lenses, but in actual fact it carries much, much more than that.
Pros: Spacuius, unobtrusive
Cons: not the right size to strap a folded tripod to, nothing else though
Summary: I already have a lowepro 450AW(all weather) prorunner backpack. Since that's too big a bag to carry my lenses and camera especially when I just want to carry one dslr and only 2-3 lenses along with may be a flash unit also.
