5.0 out of 5 stars Great bag, 19 Sep 2012
This review is from: Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW Quick Access Backpack for DSLR - Black (Electronics)
I'm new into DSLR photography and am buying all new kit (I was active with film about 20 years ago). I did tons of research before choosing this bag. I have a Canon 7D with grip, three lenses, tripod, flash and other stuff I might want to carry on a day out. I wanted something that was big enough without feeling like I was lugging the kitchen sink. I was advised not to go for a small bag or I would be buying another larger bag as soon as my collection grows and I want every penny I have towards glass, not bags. This one felt about right. I don't think it's the prettiest bag around, but it's ideal for me in that it has just enough space in the bottom section (camera etc.) and a decent size compartment at the top which fits my jacket, small pod, butties and all the small bits needed on a good day out. It's comfortable to wear, although a little firm. Has good support round the chest and waist and doesn't move about unless I want it to. The foot pocket for the tripod is a great idea although I've yet to try it out in earnest. The weather proofing is a bonus, although I won't be intentionally out in the rain. It's got good access when on the shoulder and the padding is substantial. My heart told me to buy a good looking trendy bag, my head told me to buy the most practical that suited my needs. I opted for the latter and haven't regretted it so far, although I do think it looks a bit naff. However, as a camera bag I think it's great and highly recommended.
