|The Lowepro Vertex 300 AW backpack. Probably one of the best big travel camera backpacks ever.|
My Lowepro Flipside 300 backpack basically will hold one body with a large telephoto lens attached, 2 extra lenses and a speedlight. Or 2 bodies one with a telephoto attached and one extra lens and a speedlight. I need more than that on our Maine trip so I decided to look for a large travel backpack that can hold at least 2 bodies 2 large telephotos, and 2 smaller lenses plus a speedlight and a tripod. So I browsed online for a large travel slr backpack with a not so stellar price.
|Both sides of the bag feature the glide lock system used to hold a tripod or a light stand.|
|The front features a detachable tripod catch, multiple pockets and a tripod strap.|
|The back features padded shoulder straps for comfort.|
The sides of the bag also has tripod straps and Glide locks. I find these really nice when you're going on a shoot and bringing in your tripod and light stands. I use the sides for light stands. It is so convenient that you don't need a separate bag for 2 stands.
The back has the padded straps for comfort. The straps are padded thickly for extra comfort during long hikes. It also has a waist strap to keep the bag steady along with your body...and those straps are padded too.
|If you are not using the straps, the bag has a cover so you can zip it up and it becomes a carry on bag.|
|It has a built in rain cover.|
|The bottom pocket used to keep the rain cover and the back cover.|
|The dividers are detachable for easy setup to however you want it.|
|This is where all the flat stuff goes. Filters, manuals, etc.|
|The only thing that will limit you with this bag is the ability to carry it with all the stuff inside|
|The tripod holders are a plus with this bag. It has 3 of them!|
|The front pocket has 4 memory card compartments. In addition to 4 separate pockets.|
|The other side has 2 zipped pockets for batteries or whatever, plus a pen holder and another pocket.|
|The top front has a separate laptop sleeve that can hold a 15" laptop or a tablet.|
There are endless pockets and compartments with this bag. Basically the only thing that will limit you with this bag is the ability to carry it with all the stuff that you can put in it. The construction is pretty tough, even the some of the zippers are protected from the elements.
Lowepro did a good job on this bag. I've always loved the Lowepro brand when it comes to bags. For the price, there is just no way to pass on this good deal.
