Summary: The Lowepro Pro Mag 2 AW, belying its compact size, holds a Nikon D700 body with grip and 24-70 f/2.8 attached, plus a 35mm f/2, an 85mm f/1.8, a Lensbaby Composer, a 70-200 f/2.8 VRII, a 16mm f/2.8 fisheye, a flashbracket and SC-29 cord, two SB-800 speedlights, plus spare batteries, CF cards, a tripod plate, and a cable release. A Lowepro bottle attachment (sold separately) helps keep you hydrated.
Summary: This bag is wonderful! Holds my 40D,10-22mm,18-200mm,100-400mm Canon lenses and still has room for extra batteries,memory cards,remote release,lens shades for all 3 lenses and filters of 77 and 72 mm. Go buy one if you need most of your equipment with as I do. I'll be looking at a Lowepro back pack of some discription in the future. It's made extreamly well,protects your equipment and is easy to shoulder around.
Summary: This bag is the perfect day bag, or it could be a great main bag if you have a small amount of gear? The design, size and features are fantastic. AW cover helps if you get caught in the rain. Lowepro builds great bags and this is no exception. I can get one body w/grip and lens attached in the main compartment. I usually carry, the 70-200/2.8 IS, 16-35/2.8 MKII and 24-70/2.8 in it. if i need 2 lenses then that frees up room for a flash. excellent bag.
Summary: I have been using this bag for the last (9) months and this is a follow-up review to the one I posted 1-19-2008. This bag is truely amazing. It holds all of my gear in the main compartment with the use of the adjustable divider system, including the following: Nikon D300 body with Nikon AF-S 17-55mm F/2.8 DX Lens with hood in bottom center portion of bag under the camera body/attached lens.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction, Well Padded
Summary: To me the real genius of the design is the height of the bag which makes it possible to carry two long lenses vertically, thus keeping the bag compact. Mine carries: Canon 5D with battery grip Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 Canon 100-400mm f/4-5.6 Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 Canon 17-40mm f/4 Canon 50mm 1.4 Canon 1.4x extender Plus, all of the lenses' hoods and tripod mounts, polarizing filter, cable release, cards, etc.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
Summary: One of very few bags that will hold a 70-200mm lens upright. With a 70-200mm lens there is still room for a pro body with a 17-55 or 24-70mm lens attached and two more loose lenses in the bag. The outer pocket is large enough to hold a large strobe and a battery pack and it has inner pockets that are good for filters and similar items. Designed for a waist belt which helps with distributing the weight onto the hips. Two problems to consider with this bag.
Summary: I've used a lot of different bags over the years and this is my favorite for travel and location shooting. It sits very well on the shoulder, never slipping. There is plenty of room. I pack a 5D with mongo lens, two 580EXII's in their cases, a 50mm, a 17-40 L wide angle and a 28-135 telephoto. The side compartment gobbles up plenty of extra batteries, filters, cards, etc. When traveling it unpacks easily for security to inspect. Buy this bag. It's great!
