    Oh wow, that's a really really good price.
    I have a few camera bags that suit my needs, so I won't buy another one, but this price is a great deal!
    And Lowepro offers good quality, AW just means all weather - comes with the rain shell.

  • RRP $450?

    • Really about $250-$300

    • According to staticice, yeah, some retailers have this at ~$450. Lowest on there is mid $200. Lowepro backpacks do command a premium. I paid $300 back in 2006 for a bulky Lowepro backpack which I couldn't wait to replace.

      This isn't the first time I've seen a good deal on a lowepro backpack. I got a Primus Minimus many years ago for AU$50 delivered from the UK back in 2008/9 from MyMemory.co.uk. I couldn't believe it at the time… their prices have gone up since. The best camera backpack I've ever bought… never had to buy another one since then as it's brilliant for travel.

      The only "faults" I can see with the Lowepro Backpack Photo Active BP for travel purposes is two side access panels and easily accessed zipper pockets… too easy for thieves to get access. Assuming you can secure these with locks, for anyone wanting a good travel camera backpack, this might be a well priced one.

  • Not a great backpack if you want to carry a bit more camera equipment, like multiple lenses and flashes etc. I have this bag and its really solid. Also I love the flip which allows you to mount bigger tripods on the back

    • Can that hold a bladder? This pack seems more suited for high country day trekking.

      • The side access to camera in this bag is good too. The main thing I was looking for in a backpack was for a easy way to carry a sturdy tripod.

  • Thanks, I got one. Been needing one.

    Without a good camera bag, you don't end up using your camera.

    Here's the lowpro catalogue web page for it:

    Didn't need, bought.

  • Does anyone know if the A7 III with the 100-400mm attached will fit in the camera compartment of the Lowepro Backpack Photo Active BP 300AW?

    https://www.lowepro.com/au-en/photo-active-bp-300-lp37255-co...

    My A7 III with 100-400mm attached comes to 27cm in length.

    The camera compartment of the bag is 26x13x27cm.

  • Anyone have a link to the hydration pack / bladder?

  • Yooooooo! thats one hell of a price

    Good price, but a number of reviews saying things fall down then out has put me off.

    • Yeah likewise. Also no indication of what size lens it can fit compared to other bags. Dimensions and L seem quite big though, certainly for the price.

    • I decided to go with this one: Cheaper and takes more camera gear. I have a fastpack for when I go walking and need a section for food, jacket, etc. This should take my 100-400 easier. https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B01C4ABCGO?psc=1&smid=ANEGB3WVE... This is $80, with cheapest other retailers around the $140 mark, so a good saving.
      Thanks OP.

  • Great price. At the moment I am using a Tahoe and a Flipside.

  • Thanks OP. I've currently got the ProTactic BP 450 AW II, which I'm finding a bit overkill for my needs as its so heavy if I fill it. So thinking this bag might be a better short travel option. If not, I'll just sell it.

  • Thanks OP, ordered 1

    Review for those interested to know more.

  • That's really nice. I can even use it as a fishing backpack when needed. Got one. Thanks op

  • Seems good. Ordered. But might be too big for mirrorless camera? I’ve got a Fuji X-T4. Wonder if it can be sized to hold that snugly. Plus 3 small lenses. (24mm to 70-300).

  • Anyone else get this and also realise things like to slip down the side? Managed to fit a bunch of gear in the top part of mine, a little space on one side so I put the Romoss 40k in. Moved the bag to the other side of the room, and by then, heard something slip down..

    Read a few reviews beforehand, can be easily fixed with a standard velcro divider to separate the top and built-in cage thingo. I remember one video somoene specified the exact model bag the divider came from and I researched enough to realise I'd need to get it from overseas and it's already a fairly pricey divider flap at like $30+.

    I haven't actually bought many camera accessories up until recently, can anyone recommend a place locally where they'd sell these typical Velcro dividers? If so, I'll try and find that old video and measure his divider to find an adequate comparison to grab and post here aswell.

    TIA and hope you're enjoying the bag nonetheless.
