What customers say about "Key Specs"
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • It is really well made and material are awesome. The areas for non camera stuff are small but there are many and really good for one day or two days hike.
  • Love everything about it, how light it is, great material, well designed.
  • I have noticed that where the stretchy material meets the pack on the front, the stitching is starting to come out.
  • Material is cheap and bad when you hold it with your hand, each thread clings.
  • The camera compartment is sized for a tiny camera and lens, like an EOS 400D with an 18-55 lens.
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 300 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • Great back, can fit my full frame dslr, as well as my 300mm lens, and an additional 35mm lens attached.
  • The bag is very comfortable and looks fantastic, big enough to carry all my usual camera gear, all day.
  • There is nothing wrong with the bag's construction. It is made of good quality materials and I can see why it would appeal to many.
  • I found that I had just enough room for a waterproof jacket, a lightweight fleece and one other small item (perhaps a sandwich).
  • The main compartment goes around the camera compartment, which means things can drop to the bottom and be difficult to retrieve.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • It is lightweight, feels great on the back, and is visible, which I love while hiking in the backcountry.
  • The inside space is limited, but I like that as it keeps me light. Good sized top pocket too.
  • It's smaller size it shouldn't be a problem to tailor if you have a larger shoulder frame like myself.
  • It is the right size for a one day outing leaving enough room for a water bladder and other necessary items aside from photography. The built in rain fly and other features are great.
  • First things first, it has the smallest camera compartment, especially in relation to the overall size of the bag.
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 300 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • I have travelled with it for a short space of time and heavy weight works reasonably well.
  • It's exactly what I wanted - light weight, reasonable storage for camera and a few extras.
  • A hiker's lightweight day-pack, which has some clever provisions for holding some light photo gear.
  • This big bag is very convenient to use, weight is acceptable, recommended for traveler.
  • Great bag, but for me it turned out to be too big and bulky, although it is possible because I'm short.

What customers say about "Protection"
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • Excellent water resistance which saved my things when I came under heavy rain in the mountains.
  • Water-resistant to keep your clothes dry in any weather.
  • Weather resistant, high-tech materials mean you don't have to stop because of a little rain.
  • The zippers look so confident that I am sure of them every day. I am sure they will be enough for long-term use.
  • If you don’t wear on a rain cover, everything will wet because lightning passes water.
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 300 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • Generally its a great bag. Protects your kit well. Just a about spacious enough inside.
  • Well made and versatile camera back pack. Holds and protects a ton of lenses.
  • I would highly recommend this bag to anyone who has a few lenses and wants them highly protected.
  • Zips seem excellent. Materials feel strong. Overall very impressed. Water protection on high level.
  • The padding on the back panel is rather dense and not very breathable so you back gets hot and sweaty.

What customers say about "Features"
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • It has places to clip gear and a reservoir slot for my camelback.
  • The top zippered compartment holds a wallet, keys and a phone. And, importantly, the water bottle outside pocket is large enough to hold my small travel tripod.
  • A pocket for water is tight, which means that your water will never drop out of it in your life.
  • The shoulder straps are quite thin, so if you adjust them, all of the weight is taken on the thin adjustment straps and it's hard going on the shoulders and very uncomfortable.
  • It's very difficult to balance it and to undo the adjustment straps you have to take the rucksack off and you really don't want to keep doing that.
Lowepro Photo Sport BP 300 AW II Backpack for Camera - Black
  • The external pocket for a water bottle was big enough for a 2 litre Sigg. The built-in rain cover was easily accessible.
  • The built-in rain cover was easily accessible. The top pocket built into the "lid" of the bag was of reasonable size.
  • I love the idea of being able to put your camera away easily when hiking instead of it being around my neck all the time (especially when it rains).
  • Although the zip pockets built into the waistband were just about large enough for an iPhone 6, they were hard to reach.
  • The overall design is rather fussy, with lots of straps all over the place that left me wondering where things go.
