Excellent bit of kit.. well worth consideration !!
I've purchased Lowepro gear on a few occasions and they have always exceeded expectations. The flipside trek bp 450 is no exception. I was a little concerned regarding this flipside technique but having loaded up my heavy camera gear and tried the flipping manoeuvre a few times I was pleasantly surprised !! It was a little daunting having the rucksack laid facing me suspended only by the waist strap but everything remained stable whilst I fiddled about retrieving whatever bit of kit i wanted. First impressions are encouraging although I will perhaps keep an extra eye on the waist strap clasp as it will no doubt take some serious stress. The rucksack itself is designed very well indeed with the materials and workmanship being excellent. Anyone looking for a dedicated camera rucksack with the added security benefits and the capability to bring along a few 'extras' besides. A point of note is that the floor section of the top/upper section has velcro attachments to three sides only and therefore could be flipped out of the way making one entire camera section. I personally wouldn't perhaps utilize this feature but some might. Overall, a well thought out bit of kit well worth consideration by any photographer amateur and pro alike. Highly recommended !!|
Note: this kit packed in the rear camera compartment:
Canon EOS 1DS mk ii Body, Canon EOS 450D Body, Canon EF 100-400mm is f4.5-5.6l USM zoom, Canon EF 200mm f2.8l ii USM prime, Canon EF 75-300mm f4-5.6 iii USM zoom, spare Canon 1d battery, spare memory cards, various other bits and bobs.
I have no doubt that reconfiguring this lot would allow extra space for even more stuff if required. The remaining sections to the top and front are reserved for snacks, light jacket, flashlight, notebook etc etc
