Summary: "The Vertex 200 AW works for me. It offers ots of room, protects my equiptment well it has comfortable strapping for longer journeys. It does not have quick access like the sling, so you have to dismount to get into it. The bag is a bit bulky, a square as in the picture. I take it in carry on traveling and use it all day hiking. My girlfriend calls it pretty. Thanks eBags for your great service!
Summary: This backpack is great! I previously had a LP Flipside 300 but quickly outgrew it and I was also tired of carrying around my laptop bag as well. The Vertex 200 was a wonderful decision, combining the two into one! It has TONS of various compartments and pockets, fully customizable interior to fit all your lenses and SLR body(s). I'm also able to not only fit my Acer netbook in the laptop spot but a small external hard drive too!
Summary: If you are looking for a pack that you can truly load up with gear and hike comfortably all day with, this is truly one impressive pack. I was immediately struck with the great construction quality - Lowe Pro bags are really in a league of their own. The pack held more than I realized and is very nicely organized while being fully customizable.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction
