Too heavy, slow access main zipper

14 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I find this pack good and bad. Good for lots of heavy gear, but bad for fast and easy access. Especially, I hate the 'waterproof zipper' for the main compartment. It is slow and very stiff to open and close. The other zippers are great. Without the top removable compartment attached the waterproof zipper is worthless anyway, since their is a large opening in a huge pocket that runs the full length of the pack that would leak into the adjacent main compartment anyway.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Hard To Access Equipment, Heavy

Great bag, but...

  • Excerpt: I bought this bag to hold my AF100, several lenses, and related gear. For this purpose, it's an excellent bag, with lots of pockets, padding, and easily configurable. But, the laptop storage area does not fit a 15.4 inch laptop. I have an hp 15.4, hardly a rare laptop, and it's a good 1/2 too big to fit. Without the laptop pouch that comes with the bag, you can jam it in, but in all practicality it is useless.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction

Zips, the Achilles Heel of Lowepro

CC, WEX
18 July 2013
  • Summary: Third Lowepro rucksack I have owned and the third one whose zips have failed. I also own two Slingbacks which thus far are working fine.Sadly many pros will relate the same story. It is a major Achilles heel in Lowepro. The rest of the bag is fine but the zips lasted around 3 years. (They zip has split from the seams and one of the zips has come away.
