  • Elena Reshetnyak says:

    I want to win and I want to give this bag to my husband. He is a photographer.

  • Mike R. says:

    My car got flooded on Friday when I left the windows down during a thunderstorm… it was a close call for my camera. I would have felt a lot better had my equipment been in a Lowepro bag!

  • Sam Smith says:

    I am in LOVE! <3 My heart is set on this bag! It would be a great friend as I travel with my gear!

  • Samson Kwok says:

    For those with 1 DSLR and 1 Lense
    This fastpack 100 is all you need.

    Its primary advantage: It’s light
    It’s easy to swing around to grab your equipment.
    It’s easy to get up and go take pictures at angles you would not normally achieve with other backpacks.

    a top compartment to hold other essential items.
    a side mesh to hold water bottle
    cellphone pocket at the shoulder strap

    Seriously what more can you ask for?

  • Carl Encarnacion says:

    You said it right, travelling light calls for a bag like this, Lowepro Fastpack 100. Perfect when I go for a hike or a photowalk in the city streets. This one I need and want!

  • myhna says:

  • Brian Coffey says:

    This would be a great additional bag to store all my extra items in. (belts, harness, lens pouches, etc…) LowePro bags are great! I have two of them I use now!

  • Mercedeh says:

    This would be a great bag for my Rome trip 🙂

  • Lee Stone says:

    It would be great to have a bag like this for something light to carry round on holiday.

  • Brad says:

    Whoa! Perfect for wandering Chicago. Would love one of these.

  • Trish says:

    Why do I want this bag?….. Simple; Because Lowepro ROCKS! If you’re gonna go… GO LOWE!

  • Margaret Racz says:

    I recently got back into photography with a new DSLR camera. My first thoughts were I need a convenient, travel size yet protective Lowepro camera bag – the Fastpack 100. I am taking my first trip overseas to India. This would be perfect for all the walking & picture taking we are planning.

  • Brett Rose says:

    Love lower bags and a small, lightweight version would be great for getting pics of the new family member who will arrive in the next couple if weeks. With a new baby, other kids and all of their ‘accessories’ this bag would be perfect for carrying my stuff at the same time. Can’t wait for some nice fall photo shoots!

  • Sharlini Nambiar says:

    I already had my heart set on a Flipside 300, and then my MacBook Air died on me. Fixing that is worth more than the Flipside 300 and being currently unemployed, I have to say goodbye to the Flipside 300 (here’s to more whining lenses that can no longer auto-focus because of improper storage during transit -dufflebag, anyone?). I can’t afford to spoil my lenses and being both short-sighted and astigmatic, using manual focus is just a one-way ticket to delirium and headaches!
