  • From the Manufacturer

    The Trusted Original

    Lowepro was born from one daring mountaineer’s desire to capture some of the world’s most unexplored beauty spots, with just a camera in tow. Greg Lowe made it his mission to create only the best in innovative, cutting-edge equipment, to protect extreme sporting lovers’ cameras and cinematography equipment from the heart-pounding elements.

    The humble Colorado garage beginning of the world’s first Internal Frame Backpack in 1967 pays tribute to Lowe’s enduring belief that he could be the one to design a close-fitting and supportive backpack to transport camera and recording equipment that had otherwise never been seen before. Climbers, mountain bikers, skiers and hikers could now comfortably carry their equipment to heights that only they had known, capturing intimate sights for the rest of the world to see.

    Lowe’s first defying feat paved the way for the original Soft-sided Protective Camera Bag, also to be the first of its time.

    And with that, the Lowepro mark took off. Fast forward to today and Lowepro has seen the creation of the first ever waterproof camera backpack, and continues to innovate each year to keep up with the demands of a fast-paced, ever changing world of technology and photography.

    Lightweight and technical

    The Photo Sport series of lightweight and professional camera bags has been specifically designed to meet the needs of athlete-photographers who need to keep light and fast.

    Minimalist and technical, the Photo Sport range is an ideal for carrying a variety of pro-sized gear.

    Featuring the built-in All Weather AW Cover to protect gear from rain, dust, snow and sand, the Photo Sport 200 AW, Photo Sport Pro 30L AW and Photo Sport Sling 100 AW are well equipped to handle the elements.

    Keep sensitive camera equipment safe from impact and abrasions in the UltraCinch camera chamber, available in all three models. This protective padded interior compartment keeps gear secure whilst in transit to prevent excess motion.

    The Photo Sport range also features additional trekking pole (or ice axe) attachment points on the exterior of each bag to provide an easy and secure system for expanding carrying capacity. Adjustable shoulder straps offer a custom fit for a comfortable feel when worn.

    Ideal for adventure photographers

    Whether you’re trail running, mountain biking or snowboarding, we know the extremes adventure sport athletes can put their equipment through when capturing the perfect moment. The Photo Sport series has been designed with comfort and freedom in mind, providing the ideal level of protection you need for your pro kit.

    Easy-to-access zip compartments allow for quick opening, providing speedy access to your camera and equipment. A dual-compartment design offers plenty of storage space for personal belongings and accessories, whilst the contoured and lightweight adventure-pack construction features resilient and high-performance technical fabrics for improved durability during extreme sports activity.

    The Photo Sport 200 and Photo Sport Sling feature a top-loading upper compartment, offering up to 13.9 litres of space for personal items and accessories, as well as a specialist camera compartment for carrying equipment. A supportive sternum strap helps to evenly distribute weight and prevent unnecessary strain, and also includes a built-in safety whistle for emergencies. The Photo Sport Pro 30L AW model features a breathable, mesh air-flow suspension system for even greater comfort when carrying heavy loads.

    If you have a use for this sort of pack it is very well designed and appears very well made. I'm a walker who tends to take a DSLR with him most of the time. I've had a variety of camera cases - mostly Lowe - over the years. Most recently I've had a Slingshot which has been good when I'm not on a real walk and a small padded case which went on my rucksac belt when I was. This pack should allow me to take a little more than just the camera on walks and still allow ease of access to the camera. Trying it out in the home it seems easy enough to get the camera out without taking the pack off.

    The camera fits into a compression section accessed from the side of the pack. My Nikon D7000 with an 18-200 lens fits in fine and there is space for another lens though probably not a large one. The rest of the pack allows quite a bit of space for other gear. There is a hydration space for a water bladder, a decent zipped side pocket and an open but deep/wide front pocket. There is a zipped lid pocket and a further zipped pocket in the main part of the sack. The main compartment is separated from the compression area however the more you can "compress" the camera section the more space there is in the main part. The camera section is not full width so there is a deep space on the right of the pack in the main area. The area of the main compartment is not large and I guess full winter kit is not going to fit but it should take a fair amount of gear (I'll update this when I've used it on the moors). There are compression straps on the sides of the pack. The hip belt adjusts from the sides not the centre which I think should be far easier than my current rucksack and it has a zipped pocket (useful size) on each side. There is a chest strap.

    I was looking for a decent camera bag that would allow me plenty of space for my other non-camera related possessions for when I go away for weekends or even to use as hand luggage on flights.

    The problem I found is that most camera bags are 90% for camera storage with only a little left over for a few small personal belongings.

    However, this Lowepro is one of the few bags I have seen that are more designed for those that want to carry mostly personal belongings but safely and conveniently carry their DSLR and a lens or two.

    There is a small but very secure area for your camera (with lens attached) and a spare lens or two and cleverly there is a drawstring on the compartment so once you have your camera and lenses in you can pull it tight. This not only keeps everything really secure and stops movement but it also frees up more space in the main compartment for your personal belongings.

    Perhaps a professional would find there isnt enough space for all their equipment - especially with a long telephoto zoom lens. However, for the amateur who wants a bag that they can use on day and weekend trips or to take on holiday as hand luggage with only a few camera bits it is ideal.

    There are straps on the bottom that I use to carry my tripod and the whole thing looks and feels very well made. It is not a cheap backpack but it certainly fulfilled and probably exceeded my expectations and it was well worth the extra money to get exactly what I was looking for from a camera bag.

    With a full-on stag weekend of booze and mountain biking in Scotland ahead of me I knew I needed a new bag. My existing one wasn't big enough for all day rides and there wasn't space for my DSLR.

    This fits the bill perfectly for me; well almost, but i forgive it. It's comfy, carrys all my mountain bike stuff, camera stuff and hydration pack. It even has a handy little stow-away raincover hidden in the bottom. The only criticism in this bag is that there isnt' enough little compartments. I could do with a few more as i had to bundle some stuff which didn't logically go together. I did, however, manage to easily carry all the things that i needed... So

    camera stuff
    - Canon DSLR with 18-55 zoom lens
    - iPad connector
    - usb lead
    - battery pack

    bike stuff
    - pump
    - inner tube
    - tyre leavers
    - chain links
    - chain tool
    - multi tool
    - clear glasses/sun glasses
    - spare hanger

    I also carried some food, energy gels and a rain jacket (well, we were in Scotland!) as well as a hydration pack. I wore this for 8 hours at a time on both days and at first it felt a little heavy compared to what i am used to. But it didn't take long for me to forget i was wearing it.

    On the first day I crashed quite spectacularly; I lost the front going round a corner, crossed the handlebars and went over them. My DSLR (and me!) was fine. So this bag has been crash tested too.

    This bag fits the bill perfectly. If you are looking for an all-day backpack to do mountain biking and carry a DSLR then this IS the bag for you. I am very happy with it.

    Of course, we all have different needs from our equipment, and we therefore pick our kit to (hopefully) meet those needs, which is why, when I saw this, it looked ideal for me. My family and I camp frequently in the Peak District, and as a keen photographer, I like to take my DSLR (Nikon D80 with 18-135 kit lens) where ever I can, but a 'standard' walking rucksack offers little protection to my camera when we are up in the Peaks, and I'd resorted to using a couple of carabinas to attach my small LowePro camera bag to the rucksack - it worked but it was hardly elegant, and it did bounce around a lot when descending hills.

    I usually carry a flash with me too (SB600) just in case it's needed, a monopod/walking pole, cable release, and my selection of filters (3 grads, holder and adapter) for those dramatic landscapes.

    My walking needs are simple - water bladder, lunch, snacks, waterproofs, spare fleece, buff, hat and gloves, torch and fold up foam sit mat. A 25 litre day sack is my normal walking pack, and has some room to spare with all my stuff in it.

    So, that describes my needs and hopefully explains why I bought this backpack.

    Firstly, it is very well made, with plenty of access pockets for most of my bits and pieces. The pockets on the waist belt are big enough to carry snacks to eat whilst walking, and my 2 litre water bladder fits perfectly in it allotted space. My camera (with lens attached) and flash fit into the camera space (easily accessed) but only just. My camera and lens combination is not huge by any means, but it filled this padded space. I was hoping that my filters, adapters and cable release would also go in here too but there wasn't enough room.
