Our take on the Lowepro Fastpack™ 250

by Kristen Schaub

Whether you're walking across campus, snapping vacation pics, or shooting scenes for work, don't forget to take Lowepro's Fastpack 250 with you. The large, padded main compartment fits your camera, its lens, and two or three spare lenses or a flash. Customize the interior to protect whatever you carry by adjusting the padded dividers. And it has rear compartment that snugly fits a laptop up to 15", so you'll have everything you need to shoot and edit your photos wherever you go.

Easy access to all your gear
Simply rotate the bag to your front to access the side of the main compartment with your camera. The security flap prevents you from opening the lid too far, so the rest of your gear won't fall out. To unpack the Fastpack, simply unhook the security flap and open the lid completely for 180° access. There's a roomy top pocket for your personal items, plus an additional front pocket for extra camera accessories, like cables, memory cards, and spare batteries. Use any of the SlipLock™ attachment loops located on the bag to add compatible Lowepro pouches, and get even more room for accessories.

good travel pack

Written By milt, Port Ludlow, WA on Saturday, December 22, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great pack to carry camera and accessories and still additional personal stuff. Cell phone storage in the carry strap and additional front pocket increases its utility in travel allowing for quick access to documents and maps. Camera can be stored with zoom lens attached for quick access.
The straps and waist support help to keep the pack riding high on the shoulders and hips reducing pressure on lower back. Sturdy construction.
No place for strapping on a tripod.

Great product

Written By Mark, Philadelphia, PA on Thursday, February 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Bought this in combo with the Canon T2i. No regrets, impressed with camera storage area. Just enough storage up top for a change of clothes or a packed lunch or two. Also, like that the bag cannot collapse. Very secure.
