    Purchased one of these for a forthcoming trip "Downunder" Didn't want to use my Lowepro shoulder bag due to having to manage other luggage. The Fastpack easily accomodates my EOS 5D and 3 lens, one of which is attached to the body, still leaving room for another lens or in my case the battery charger in the camera section.
    The top section will take my iPod, headphones and other bits with ease, I may even have some room for the odd tee shirt and I have somewhere to put a bottle of water....great.

    Well made product, comfortable to wear and very suitable for my needs, a product that I will get a lot of use from.

    Brilliant! An absolute Tardis! Takes two SLR bodies (one with lens attached to body) and 2 or more pro lenses, as well as laptop, power cables and weekend change of clothes - so long as the airlines don't think to weigh everything you pack into it! It's easy to access the individual compartments and has a security flap over the front zipped pocket too: just what I needed for international wedding photoshoots! xx Elaine

    Can't go wrong with the quality but cannot accommodate a standard tripod. Shame as simple external straps would do the trick.

    First things first, I'm not a professional photographer, so I can only speak for the enthusiastic amateurs out there, who do not have a crazy amount of kit and HUGE lenses.

    This is probably my favourite bit of camera accessories I have ever owned! Yes, it's quite bulky, but it's also super practical!

    About the camera compartment:
    This is really spacious, my little D60 feels positively naked in there! The possibilities to structure the compartment to your own needs are limited, but satisfactory in my opinion. The quick access flap is really useful, although it takes some practise to build up the confidence to take out your camera with only one hand while the rucksack is still on your back. It works though, and you get used to it quickly. There are also neat little pockets for memory cards, batteries, filters, etc., but not excessive.

    About the additional storage facilities:
    The top half of the rucksack is for misc. use. This compartment is not very big, but it serves. You'll be able to fit your phone, wallet and sandwiches nicely, so unless you go hiking and need a huge amount of provisions, it will do just fine. A number of little inside pockets make it quite well organised, but you will not be able to store anything bulky in here (even a thick jumper can be stretching the limit). However, there's a net pocket on the side of the rucksack which holds drink bottles very nicely (up to 0.75l, I'd say, I wouldn't trust it with anything much bigger than that). The front flap can be used to strap a jacket to the bag.

    The laptop compartment is exactly that: a well-padded space where you can store your laptop. I also find it useful for books, maps, travel documents, and all sorts of other large-but-flat items.

    This Lowepro backpack was purchased from Amazon for under £45 - it is excellent value, we have been using Lowepro products for many years and this product lives up to the Lowepro reputation. It has so many pockets and access points - not even sure I've found them all yet.
    The camera compartment takes my old Canon 1Ds with a 70-200mm lens attached, a couple of extra standard lenses, flash etc. - and everything is easily accessible
    My laptop and all the rest of the associated niff-naff and trivia are equally well provided for.
    It's comfortable to have on your back, but be aware that the more gear you manage to get inside, obviously the heavier it becomes. If you need something more dedicated to purely photographic equipment (tripod attachments/weatherproof cover/larger lenses) then look at the `trekker' range, but for casual walks or weekends away this backpack is just the business.

    I've managed for years with the Lowepro Orion Trekker but had realistically out grown it, especially when I upgraded to the EF 100-400 lens. It would only fit in the unprotected top section.

    With the Fastpack 350 I can comfortably fit the aforementioned attached to my 20D with my standard zoom, 60mm macro, flash gun and a portable hard drive with room to spare. Add to that the front pouch and the day pack section, which comes complete with cable pouch, and I find I've got more than ample storage for batteries & chargers, filters, spare cards, cleaning gear..... OK you get the idea.

    The carrying system is yet another strength of this bag. I've not put it to a long day trek test but around town it's very comfy. The straps are well designed, with the sternum strap much better thought out. The ventilation system not the best but adequate and the hip belt sits comfortably for me. The main strength here is the ability to swing the pack to the front and get to your pride & joy without taking the whole rig off. Not quite as easy as the sling type packs but a good compromise for those who need the full harness for long days out.

    Is there a down side? well yes. This pack is definitely a compromise albeit a good one. The main thing that lets it down, however is the lack of a tripod carrier. That could be a problem if you intend to go out for a long trek looking to do some serious photography.
