    Perfect for my D90 and extra loot.

  • S Malone says:

    I am a newbie to this camera thing, but it didn’t take me long to figure out the Lowepro bags are the bees knees. I would love to own one! I will be taking a lot of pics at my son’s highschool football games and wrestling matches. Wooowhoo! I hope you pick me.

  • Omar Leyesa says:

    I love carrying my camera wherever I go. Not a single day pass without using my camera since I got into photography last year. I am an amateur photographer on the lookout for the perfect shot and I need the perfect companion to go along with my camera. That is why I believe Fastpack 100 would suit my needs with its sleek and lightweight design aimed at giving total comfort and convenience. Also, this bag would give the best protection for my camera against droplets and bumps.

  • Don Klopfenstein says:

    Looks to be the perfect bag for shorter trips, one gets tired with large loads. For quick shoots I prefer a small light weight bag. This bag looks great as well !

  • I think this bag would be so practical & yet stylish…as one must look fabulous while one snaps away!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Will Matthews says:

    I’ll use this fastpack 100 for trips out with select camera gear. Help me to travel lighter! The bag looks excellent!

  • Nev Swann says:

    My age and failing health make carting my gear around in my Rover plus AW or Nova 5 AW a real chore, I feel that the Fastpack 100 would bring the enjoyment back into my photography.

  • Stephanie says:

    My friend has this bag and i feel in love with it. Im going on a cruise and this would be a perfect bag for me to take my gear.

  • Whitney Stewart says:

    This would be great for combing photography with another of my favorite activities- geocaching!

  • Ron Bebus says:

    I have a trip to scotland coming next month. This bag would be perfect for that trip


  • Sho says:

    Iโ€™d like to have this bag because I like its slim & long sleek design!

  • Jim Masse says:

    I love my off trail 2 but a backpack work work better in the rough areas of Maine & NH that I hike.

  • Tracy says:

    A Fastpack 100 would be the perfect bag for canoe trips and waterfalling…just big enough for the basics and a few extras without adding weight or bulk. I’m getting old and would have more energy to go further off the beaten path for those elusive shots!!! …without giving up the sturdy protection and peace of mind that my huge 25 year old bag gives me. Only Lowepro for my gear ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Edgar says:

    I already got 3 lowepro bags and I think the fastpack 100 will perfectly fit the size gap between my beltbag and backpack – intended for photowalks.

  • sue v says:

    I think this would be the perfect pack for hiking in the fall ๐Ÿ™‚

    • theresa cloake says:

      my flipside 400 is great for long trips but for short trips it is too big, whereas the fastpack 100 would be perfect for quick jaunts…. thus perfect for me and my nikon
