The Lowepro Flipside 400 AW is a large-capacity outdoor backpack for serious photographers. It delivers an ideal solution in terms of comfort, protection and organisation for a high specification of photography kit. This series offers outdoor adventure and sports shooters a mix of features that make it easy to carry, move, access and capture the images they love.
The Flipside series of bags provides body-side access. Photography equipment can only be accessed via the zipped panel on the reverse of the backpack and so it keeps gear close to you and extra secure whilst on the move. With the rucksack on your back, the main compartment cannot be unzipped without removing it. Also, photographers are regularly in and out of their bags, often having to put the dirty side straight back onto their backs. The body-side access avoids this and keeps both the back panel and shoulder straps clean. Also, the waistbelt and shoulder strap construction mean that this backpack can be ‘flipped’ around while being worn making it a choice for secure and quick access in a backpack. The added security and convenience of the Flipside system make it a firm favourite amongst professional and enthusiast photographers alike.

The roomy and padded camera compartment provides protection for gear and the adjustable divider system makes for easy customisation. The Velcro dividers can simply be removed or relocated anywhere within the bag to fit the kit you require it to carry. This Flipside 400 AW has a large capacity meaning it can protect, store and carry a large telephoto lens up to 300 mm f/2.8. As a guide the Flipside 400 AW could carry a Pro DSLR with lens attached, extra body, 4-6 extra lenses or five lenses and a flash, accessories, tripod and personal items. On the outside of the bag there is also a little orange icon which signifies the Hideaway Tripod Mount system. This simply pulls out from its hidden pocket and can secure a tripod or monopod to the outside of the backpack for easy access and carrying.
When full to the brim the Flipside 400 AW may be pretty heavy. The contoured shoulder strap with padded waist belt evenly distributes weight and provides comfort whilst wearing. The adjustable sternum straps help you to keep the shoulder straps where you want them. The ability to swivel the bag around and access whilst still wearing it mean that it is both convenient and comfortable to carry.
An additional front zippered, storage compartment includes space for a tablet and provides quick access to cables, adapters, small accessories and personal Items. Built-in memory card pockets within the bag offer quick access and storage of extra memory, vital when you are out and about. Stretchy mesh pockets on the sides can hold water bottles and snacks with ease. If all that space isn’t enough then the SlipLock attachment loops mean you can increase the bags carrying capacity by easily connecting compatible cases, pouches and bags (sold separately). The patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover protects gear from rain, dust and sand and tucks away when not in use.

The backpack is very well made and well padded but It's smaller than I'd imagined and I must admit I was hoping to get more of my photography junk in it. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Richard Norris
