    Free Bag Friday Winner! (Urban Reporter) Congrats to Dustin H. who commented on this blog: “For me, the Urban Reporter would be a perfect bag! I have an old Nova shoulder bag that is just too small for my set up and I find myself carrying my lenses in a backpack where they aren’t well protected at all…” Well, Dustin, your gear will soon have a new home. And thanks to all who participated. We’ll do it again soon.

    I have had my current Lowepro bag for over 10 years. This would be a great upgrade and I could use it everywhere! Would love to have such a professional, high quality bag!

    I actually use a Lowepro Rezo 170 AW with my Nikon D3100, 18-55 mm and 55-200 lenses but i’m going to buy new acccesories and the Urban Reporter is and excellent option for my future new toys.

    I travell a lot and you can’t imagine the small bag that I have. Please, send me that, it’s the best bag I have seen! Wonderful!!!:)))

  • Brandon Wong says:

    I’m currently own Lowepro Urban Photo Sling 250 and flipside sport 15L. Winning the Urban Reporter 250 would allow me to have more flexibility during my shots. Come think about it, i do need a laptop and camera bag.

    An ode to this bag:

    Oh, how I’d love to own you,
    To carry you on my shoulder,
    For you to be my very own,
    And I your loving holder.

    We’d explore the earth,
    Always close together,
    Every place any time,
    In all sorts of weather.

    We’d climb mountains,
    Decend valleys,
    Visit memorials,
    And political rallies.

    You would hold my camera,
    Three nature guides too,
    To whatever adventure,
    That we might persue!

    Yes, how I’d love to own you,
    To carry you on my shoulder,
    For you to be my very own,
    And I your loving holder.

    I’d use it to shoot a debate tournament next week! And take it on backpacking trips around NC mountains
