    hi, my dear photographers out there, i would like to have (fastpack 100) because most of the time i use my two wheeler to go out for capturing my photos, as per now i have my (Pro Runner 350 AW)which is being accompanied me since many days its really a WOW product from Lowepro thanks for that,but as for my usage i need to stop my vehicle and remove my backpack and take out my camera and then again put it back on my shoulder this is really a time consuming task, there are several moments in my life where i missed my valuable photos in this i hope fastpack 100 will be more useful for me to take my candid photos while still sitting on my vehicle just by pulling the bag front unload my camera and then take the snap and can easily load it back…

    Well I want this bag because of my numerous lenses and camera and well simply because I would look fabulous in red. But mostly because it will be nice to have a bag that will 1. fit my stuff, and 2. fit my needs

    I am not a pro but I dress like a (Lowe)pro… My reliable, durable and easy to carry ’96 Off Trail belt pack needs a companion when I go mountain biking, hiking and traveling around the world. Thanks Lowepro.

  • Bryce M. says:

    I just purchased a new camera and would love a new lightweight camera bag to carry it in and I know lowepro is the the only one that can deliver.

  • Ivy Cheng says:

    I can use this sleek design bag to carry all the equipment (i.e. camera, lens, tripod and gadgets etc )and personal belongings for any trips that require maximal stamina and minimal weight. Last month I spent a week in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland and I could imagine how easy the trip would be with this backpack, so slim and yet with huge capacity to ease the logistics. It would definitely be a wonderful companion for expedition and good shots!!

  • Seth Dewey says:

    When I am going on a short hike, or an urban photo expedition, this bag would be perfect… lightweight and easy to maneuver with.

  • CLIFF HANNAM says:

    Very simple, If you want the very best Buy Lowepro. I have four of their camera bags and i just love them. They fit what they say they will fit. The workmanship is always first class.

  • Joanne says:

    I have just been brought a new slr camera and i have sold things on ebay to afford the lence and the filter. I thought i could manage with a old camera bag for tbd moment but it is too small to fit my stuff in. I have tried the 102 slingbag in a local shop but i just can’t afford the it at the moment. I would be delighted with this bag as i never win anything and i love you products. I lost all my previous kit in a divorce, and its taken a long time to get my kit again. .
