Our take on the Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW (Black)

by Woody Sherman
Lowepro

Out on the rock face

It's been a hard rappel to the perfect location for getting shots of the new free-climbing sensation. She's getting close to where you'll have the perfect background. Time to get your gear set.

Wow. It's a bad time to realize that you're going to have to completely reorient yourself to get at your camera. You know, if you had bought that Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW you'd be setting your focus right now. With a minimum of fuss, you can shed a shoulder strap and get to the side-access camera compartment while remaining secure and stable. You'll transition from "ready to move" to "ready to shoot" in moments.

Shooting active sports like mountain biking, trail running and snowboarding demands a lot of athletic performance from the camerapeople too. So you need a pack that not only keeps the gear you need tightly secured, but has room for lots of other essentials, like food, water, and a cell phone. The Photo Sport 200 is made for those challenges. The Ultra-Cinch camera chamber keeps your pro-sized DSLR camera, flash and kit zoom lens in a tight, padded environment, secured from bouncing about. The top-loading upper compartment has almost 14 liters of volume for other essentials you may need in the outdoors: hydration pack, hat, trail snack bars, nylon cord, you name it. The padded adjustable shoulder straps, sternum strap, and waist belt ensure a comfortable carry.

The included all-weather (AW) cover will keep everything safe and dry during a sudden downpour.

Highlights:

  • Ultra-Cinch camera chamber securely fits a pro-sized DSLR camera with kit zoom lens and flash unit
  • upper compartment features up to 13.9 liters of space for personal items like a jacket, ground cover, cell phone or keys
  • all-weather (AW) cover keeps equipment safe and dry
  • durable nylon/polyester construction
  • zippered side flap provides safe, easy access to gear
  • tightly padded interior keeps camera kit from bouncing in transit
  • hideaway tripod mount for a portable tripod or DSLR video rig
  • stow-away waist belt for easy travel
  • mesh side pocket for a water bottle
  • adjustable padded shoulder straps, padded mesh backpad, waistbelt, and sternum strap help distribute weight evenly
  • camera compartment internal dimensions: 7-5/8"W x 9-1/16"H x 3-1/2"D
  • top compartment internal dimensions: 9-3/8"W x 20-7/8"H x 7-1/2"D
  • warranty: limited lifetime
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW (Black)

Written By Doug L, Chino Valley, AZ on Monday, June 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is an well designed pack. I use it for a d7100 with q 18-200 and a 70-300 and all fit in the camera case. its a little tight, but I don't mind that. the pack itself seems to be designed by osprey with lots of adjustments. there is a side pocket opposite of the camera port for a water bottle. I use a 70 oz osprey bladder and it fits well' Something I have done is that some have complained about the straps; I got 2 seatbelt wraps and that helps with the rubbing. the inside fits a lunch and odds and ends and another lens. the pocket in the lid is great for phone ipod etc. there is a small inner pocket for keys and other misc. Its a little heavy when full so access to camera slows down. I find that it works really great as a destination pack, but if you need the camera a lot then it can be a chore to unsling. Over all it has been a great addition to my gear. I carry a 10" tab in a sleeve in the overflow
Pros:
well designed, comfortable, adjustable, easy to get to the camera, camera well protected. carries water away from equip.
Cons:
a little awkward to access camera when fully loaded

Not what was expected from Lowepro

Written By Not what was expected from Lowepro, Silver Spring, MD on Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I took this pack on a 2 week vacation in South America. It is not built for other than light use. The shoulder straps are too thin. All elastic stretched on and in the pack stretched out and returned with a fraction of its previous tension. A disappointment considerin the quality of other Lowepro products I've had.
Pros:
Lots of room for photography and other items
Cons:
Made for light use. Straps too thin and elastic did not retain tension. Can't get to the bottle holder or camera without taking the entire pack off.
