When you have *a lot* of equipment to move from point A to point B, there’s nothing better than the Lowepro Magnum 650 AW or the Magnum 400 AW. Why do I make such a bold statement?

I’ll start with capacity. In its main compartment, the 650 AW holds 1-2 Pro DSLRs with one 70-200mm F2.8 zoom attached, plus 8-10 lenses. Then there is room for accessories (flash, etc) and a 15.4″ widescreen notebook. Next, let’s talk about handles. You have great ones on top for two-handed loading. Then you have plenty of straps, buckles, and a trolley sleeve for attaching to carts or luggage. And if you have more equipment, the Magnums are designed for secure stacking, so you can really load up the gear.

Oh, and there’s one more thing, and this is a fun one. The laptop sleeve included with the Magnum 650 AW has an integrated sunshade for protection from glare and increased privacy. In fact, you can use your laptop with the sunshade on the top of the bag as an impromptu work platform in the field. It’s pretty cool.
