Road Trip with the Lowepro Classified 180 AW

By November 19, 2010Products

Compact yet roomy, and enough room for iPad or netbook too.

Even though I’m not on photo assignment for this trip, I’m still a photographer and want to have a good kit with me. One of my favorite bags for these situations is the Lowepro Classified Sling 180 AW. I like that it holds my DSLR (Canon 60D on this trip) with 70-200 f/4, 16-35 f/2.8, 50 f/1.8, and 18-55 kit zoom. Plus I have flash, filters, and all of the accessories. The front pocket holds an iPad, netbook, or 13″ MacBook Air. Yet the entire package is very compact. (You can see a short video about how a MacBook Air 13″ fits in the Classified).

The other thing that I really like about this bag, is that it’s made of premium components. The fabric, zippers, strap, and compartments are all top notch. When I walk into a meeting with the Classified, I feel like a professional.
