Our take on the Lowepro Flipside 500 AW by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
Day 4 of the Pacific Crest hike, and around every corner, the view that awaits seems better than the last. But the footing is tricky, so you're even more grateful than usual that you can easily access all your gear without shedding your pack. Your experienced eye takes in the scene, looking for the best angle for that amazing mountain vista.
All this while you're tirelessly snapping photos of your hiking club partners, charging across the landscape. It was good thinking on your part to house your gear in the Lowepro Flipside 500 AW. Aside from protecting your pro-sized DSLR with attached grip and big 500mm telephoto lens in almost any weather, it holds additional tools, like extra camera bodies, lenses, a tablet, and some flash units. It has attachment points for carrying a tripod, monopod, or hiking pole, not to mention a zippered pouch for personal items and small accessories. And the padded waist belt and contoured shoulder straps distribute weight evenly. You'll be keeping your head up, watching for great shots and loose footing, instead of falling behind the crowd searching for gear.
