Excerpt: This is a nice bag, but my Canon 60D with BG-E9 battery grip will not fit in it. I may use this bag to carry my 70-200 2.8 L lens when I'm packing light. This bag was included when I purchased my Canon 60D a few weeks ago. This bag would better fit a point and shoot camera, or for somebody that only has a DSLR with a short lens and with no other accessories that they need to carry.
Excerpt: Lowepro is a good name for bags but I'm not sure if I'm going to even use this one. The size and layout just doesn't seem convenient. It's too big for just the camera with lens, but not big enough for an extra lens. The material and construction is ok. I think the weather cover is a good idea but it doesn't look all that convenient to use. Overall, it doesn't seem to be very well thought out.
Excerpt: So this bag does a decent job of fitting stuff, but it has one big problem: The carrying strap. Both the strap itself and the pad on the strap are uncomfortable. If you are planning to have this around your neck for a while, expect some chaffing on any exposed skin that is in contact with the strap.
Pros: Built In Rain Cover, Easily Accessible Equipment
Excerpt: Good quality, well padded bag with lots of storage nichesand built-in rain cover. However, after using the smallerLowepro Rezo TLZ 20 bag for 2+ years including on two major,multi-week trips under challenging conditions, I find thelack of quick access to my camera with the 170 bag to be amajor disadvantage and a big step backward for my travelneeds.
