Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW Reviewed
(all photos shot with iPhone)
I have been carrying my equipment in the Photo Sport 200Aw for a few weeks now. Before using this bag, I had smaller top loaders or slings, or larger backpacks, but I was clearly missing a lightweight, comfortable, yet roomy bag to carry my equipment. Speaking of weight, Lowepro reports the bag as weighing only 1.3kg! I haven’t actually weighted the bag, but it is very, very light. Too often I have had a bag being heavier than my actual gear!
Here is what I have been fitting in there most times:
I really like the separate access to the body compartment, which fits my D3 with a 24-70MM lens perfectly. It has a chamber lid that closes with a drawcord.
The bag features several external pockets, which are all well located for quick grab items. I often wear shorts without pockets in the summer time or when in tropical areas, and having safe pockets to have a phone and keys handy is very practical.
The dedicated hydratation pocket fits a camel-back style hydratation reservoir, while ensuring all your camera gear stays dry. Its the first time I am comfortable carrying H20 with my equipment.
The top compartment closes with a drawcord and some clips. Again, comparing to the conventional backpacks, much more practical than a zipper that would open the whole bag.
