    I would love to have this backpack to carry all of my gear in while travelling. It has plenty of space and everything I need with me would fit.

  • Jeff H says:

    I’ve been looking for a backpack that will handle a 7D and 17-55/70-200 while skiing and road cycling, yet can carry a laptop for general travel. This looks like it would get the job done.

  • Janet Pierre says:

    Perfect bag for all my camera equipment! I only use backpacks because I need to keep my hands free for the camera and the cane I must use occasionally due to a knee injury. Next to black, my favourite colour is BLUE! I can see myself travelling with ease and worry-free, knowing that my equipment is safely tucked away and will fit in the overhead bin! Yooohooo!!!

  • Alex Kam says:

    This would go great when I carry a laptop!

  • It would the perfect bag when I conduct my journeys in search of new subjects for my artwork, or timeless stand alone photography!

    It’s great for going out in the Everglades and shooting nature. It will be a great present for my boyfriend

  • Josh K. says:

    The reason why I would love to have one of the most popular bag, the Fastpack 250 to my addition is that it would cater for my pro-grade camera gear and accessories, and I rely heavily on Lowepro products to keep my gear padded, safe & secure.

    Over the last few months I have acquired enough camera gear that I feel a backpack like this would be really great to have.

  • Aubrey Kanoski says:

    I’ve actually been browsing for a bag for sometime now since I just upgraded my camera kit to a more professional level and look forward to getting out and enjoying the coming fall. This bag would be great!
