No need to let the weather stop you from shooting great photos — Lowepro's Nova 160 AW will protect your digital SLR camera from everyday bumps and bruises and the occasional unexpected downpour. It features Lowepro's built-in 360° All Weather Cover™. This raincoat-like fabric pulls out of a special compartment and wraps around the bag to protect it from rain, wind, and snow. It also used a zippered, overflap lid to keep your gear secure and dry.

The Nova 160 AW's padded, soft interior helps protect your camera from dust and scratches, while an adjustable divider hugs your camera and an extra lens or two to keep them from jostling around during transport. Dual memory card pockets, a front zippered pocket, and side mesh pockets give you plenty of places to store spare memory cards, cables, and manuals. Plus, the removable and adjustable shoulder strap, quick-grab carrying handle, and belt loop give you plenty of options to carry this professional-looking bag with you wherever you go.

Durable and functional - a great case!

Written By WhatLukeSays, Richmond, VA on Wednesday, June 13, 2012

The Lowepro Nova 160 AW Camera Bag is a durable and functional bag that is made out of all high quality materials.

Pros: - Very light but sturdy - Many pockets on the inside and out - Dedicated SD card pockets - Belt loop on back so you can wear as beltpack - Cushioned grab handle and adjustable shoulder strap - Main compartment is deep, well padded, and has moveable velcro divider - Includes 360 Degree All Weather Cover - Can fit a lot of gear

Cons: - The All Weather Cover is sometimes hard to get on

Thanks for reading and watching!
