How Big Is a Lowepro Magnum 650 AW?

By August 28, 2012Design Room, Products

If you go off specs alone, the Lowepro Magnum 650 AW measures 19.3W X 14.2D X 13.2H in. (49 X 36 X 33.5 cm). But those are just numbers. How about the fact that you can fit 3 Event Messenger 150s or 2 Pro Messenger 180 AWs inside and close the lid?

Now, that’s storage space.

or 2 Pro Messengers (bottom).

Let’s open the top flap and see what we see. Notice that lens inside? That’s a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 standing on end. Looks like there’s some room left over.

You can lay your 15.4″ widescreen laptop across the top. The Magnum even includes a computer case to protect it. Then add 1-2 Pro DSLRS (with the 70-200 F2.8 attached if that’s more convenient), plus 8-10 lenses… and still have room for plenty of accessories.

The Magnums are designed to stack on a rolling cart. So if you have *lots* of gear, you can easily move as many bags as you need from point A to point B.

So how big is the Magnum 650 AW? Big.
