This bag does everything it sets out to do really well; it’s comfortable for long periods of time with a lot of heavy gear in; it’s easy to get to all your gear and organise it, letting you get on with what you got it for in the first place - taking great photos.

I love this bag as I feel my camera and lenses are safe when I'm in NYC as the opening is facing my back. The only problem I found is that the black colored faded to a reddish black after 2 years.

I read that the 400 version of this bag doesn't fit well for taller folks so I opted to grab the 500AW and sure enough, it's HUGE. Massive. It sits 6" taller than my last bag and can hold MORE than enough of what I need.

I purchased this backpack specifically to carry my Canon 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM lens. This lens did not fit well in the Flipside 400 and so I hoped the 500 would work well, and it did. This backpack is deep and the lens fits great with lots of room to spare height wise and length wise.

My last Lowe back pack lasted for over 20 years ! This new pack enables me to pack my 300 2.8 with a extender and Dslr attached. It almost seems that the packs only limit is what I am able to carry weight wise !

Really pleased with this as I needed safe transport for my Nikon kit including a 200-500mm lens which isn't small by any means. Everything is secure, lots of compartments for bits and bobs. I highly recommend this bag. Excellent quality.

i recently received a zoom lens as a gift for the horse trip that i take every year at the end of april, and i needed a back pack to hold it, and my other lenses and body and batteries, etc. It held everything beautifully.

Love the extra depth of the backpack-works very well when battery grips are attached to camera bodies. Plus has enough length to leave my 600 attached to camera body

This is one of the very versatile bags developed by Lowepro and is very easy and convenient to operate due to its Flipside Design. The bag accommodates almost 4-5 lenses, speedlites, two DSLR bodies. You can pack 300mm or 400mm lens attached with body in this bag. Very spacious.
