It's a really nice shoulder bag

Excerpt: This is a really nice bag. I am really impressed with the feel of it. I bought the 200 AW model before this one, but I thought that it was too big and bulky for everyday use so I bought this one for when I don't need that much gear. It's the perfect size for a camera body and a few lenses for when going out and doing head shots or event coverage. I really like the top handle and how you can pick up the bag without the flap coming open.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Durable, Lots of storage space
Excerpt: This bag has a lot of room and is very well constructed. A bit bigger than I need for a shooter's bag, but it's very user friendly. Swallows a long zoom or a 300mm f/4 with room to spare. Very configurable. Lighter would be better, but still comfortable to carry.
Excerpt: After a little research for a more practical day bag, I settled on the lowepro. I already have the stealth reporter which is my work horse bag but it is impractical for every day carry. I always carry my Fuji xpro1 and a few extra items . The bag I was using was a great size but offered no protection for my camera. This bag fills that roll perfect. Actually it is the most comfortable bag I own. I highly recommend !
Excerpt: I have spent 2 weeks in Italy taking pictures of the many cities. This bag is very durable and comfortable on the shoulder when fully loaded. There is plenty of space for 4 prime lenses, 1 body and a flash. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Excerpt: My wife uses this while I use the 180 AW. We both love these bags. They hold an amazing amount of equipment and are designed to allow for easy access for virtually everything. Has lots of smaller storage pockets though a couple of them are difficult to access. Bag has a lot of padding to protect your gear-- this was important to us. But this does add to overall weight of the bag, which is a bit heavy already when it's empty.
Excerpt: It doesn't look like a camera bag. The bag holds Canon 5D III with a 70-200mm f4 attached (hood reversed). If you wanna store a camera with a 70-200mm f2.8 lens mounted vertically, it is a little tight.
Excerpt: I bought this bag because my camera bag is a little big too small for my essential equipment. I always bring 5D3, 35L, 24 TS-E and a flash gun. Depending on the situation, I'll also bring a 85L, 135L or 70-200 f/4. That's one camera, three lenses and a flash gun. Plus some small accessories. The shoulder pad on the strap is comfortable but a little bit too stiff. The FlexFlap is very well designed. Generally everything is very functional. The bag looks ok.
Excerpt: I'd been doing research to find a good travel bag for my 6d with grip. I work as a long haul flight attendant and I take my camera all over the world. I wanted a bag that blended in to the street environment. This bag was the one for me , great build and great design . I own three lowepro products this bag is the latest addition to the family. Looks retro style and i love the pockets with amples of space. If you are lookin for a quality bag with style this is it.
