Here’s how to participate.

  • Use hashtags #Lowepro and #PhotoHatchback.

Not on Twitter or Instagram? Just add a comment to this blog about how you’d use the bag and Ego+WiFi camera if you won. We’ll randomly select a winner on Tuesday, April 23, 2013. The winning comment, tweet, or photo will be posted here and on our Facebook Fan Page.

    My son is a HUGE camera enthusist and a buddiing photographer and is always struggling to afford items to pursue this. The equipment and bags are expensive for his budget I would WOULD to win this for him!

  • I’d use the Photo Hatchback 16L and Ego+WiFi camera while biking to put together a timelapse video of my travels. I could also fit my mirrorless camera outfit in the bag for photos on the go. Awesome giveaway!

  • Jon Matthies says:

    I really could use a new bag to hold my new camera–my old bag barely has enough room for the new lens/lens hood. In short: pick me!

  • Leann says:

    I have two very active children who will vie for time with this set! I will also use it to film them in the water, on the slopes and everywhere else!

  • Alex says:

    I’d use the 16L to ensure I always have my camera equipment and the Ego to capture all the moments my DSLR can’t.

  • The Photo Hatchback would be a great bag for casual hikes in the wetlands photographing wildflowers and insects. The camera would be awesome to take with me on my next airboat trip in the Everglades. I tried to use my DSLR but there was way too much spray and moisture when we rode through the sawgrasses.

  • this bag would make my wife happy because I’m spending all my income on lenses. Seriously though, I would happy endorse this bag to everyone I come across on a shoot, it will improve my setup time tremendously- I am using a spare book bag from college for my camera and lenses at the moment, help me lowepro, help me!

  • Tam says:

    I go on many photo adventures with my fellow photographer friends, so having this new bag will replace my current camera bag which only fits my camera with one lens AND relieve some of the pain i get from the shoulder strap. I’d love to be able to use the ego and wifi cam to capture all the crazy encounters/amazingly fun times my friends and I share. It helps relieve the stress of work all day to just be able to go out and explore! It’ll be great to watch the funniest moment of the day over and over again!

  • J.J. Guy Longtin says:

    Great bag to use in my canoe while tour our fantastic rivers!

  • Jitan says:

    I’ve got a lot of walks planned all over the uk and one abroad.. would use the camera to record the memories and share with others

  • Pedro says:

    The gear keeps growing and my current lowepro bag is a sling, so for long walks it can get too heavy only on one shoulder,one of the new Photo Hatchback is just what the doctor recomended!

  • Adam H says:

    I go whitewater kayaking from time to time and have always wanted to video tape it. I’d use the bag and camera for hiking and kayaking in Utah this summer. Would be a good test of what they can do!

  • Erika says:

    I am new to photography, but I love learning! This bag would make it easier to go out and shoot!

  • I’d use all this on the go gear for all of our adventures, from deep sea fishing, to snorkeling, snowboarding and rafting! My current bag is great, but its bulky and not for the fast paced lifestyle we have most of the time. The 16L would be great to tag along the ego and other essential gear for all of our adventures!

    i just love going out and practicing photography and any new piece of equipment is always fun to experiment with
