DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW (Black) is rated out of 5 by 9.Rated 5 out of 5 by Stratus from The TARDIS of photography backpacks! I purchased my very first Lowepro, the DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW, back in December of 2012 and have been in love with it since. I am an avid traveller, and with the limit of carry-on bags allowed on flights, I was usually okay throwing my point-and-shoot into my regular backpack... until I got my first DSLR. I then had to think of everything I would now be bringing on trips: tripod, laptop, cables, camera(s), lenses, etc. Usually, I was able to throw everything I needed into my backpack, but now I required something that would not just be a general photography backpack, but also a great travel bag that would be more of a "two for one" kind of deal. This is that bag. I'm able to carry my DSLR, 3-4 lenses, compact cameras, flash, filters, lens hood, media players, laptop, tablet, large headphones, cables, tripod and/or monopod, and all sorts of things like snacks, drinks, and books in this bag. At first I thought it was too small when I looked at it in the store, but then I put my gear in and found I had a lot of room left! It's like the TARDIS of backpacks; it's bigger on the inside! You can put so much more in this bag than originally expected, and then go all over the world! It's perfect for my lifestyle - whether it be on a job or just general travel - and I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I don't need my old backpack since the top half can be for anything you'd like. It even comes with a small cable pouch, which I also use for CF cards, remotes, and other small items; it helps keep them separated and safe. I can also access the side flap quickly to get my DSLR out if I see something I want to capture, and then place my camera back in safely without opening up the bottom camera compartment completely. The DSLR Fastpack 250 AW supports all of the gear very well, and I've walked around all day with a full load and was pretty comfortable. When my black 13" laptop is in the backpack, it gets a little stiff, but otherwise it is comfortable the rest of the time. The weatherproof cover is of great help as well, and long days on hikes allows me to pack refreshments easily in the top compartment. The tripod/monopod holder on the side is a huge help not only for hiking, but for easy use and carrying onto flights. The whole reason I stumbled upon this bag was because I'd asked the employee for "a backpack that has a laptop slot, tripod holder, room for general storage, and one that I can use for air travel." This bag nailed everything I needed. I really can't find much that I don't like about this bag. I'm able to bring what I need, and it's been great for when I need a place to store spontaneous gift shop purchases when I'm travelling! It's been on countless flights, through the thick wilderness, banged, dropped, caught in downpours, and goodness knows what else. This bag is so durable, and my gear has never been compromised. It does exactly as it should; protect your gear from the unexpected in style! It's definitely an all-around wonderful product, and I have recommended it to many people. Awesome bag!Date published: 2013-10-02Rated 4 out of 5 by Allyn from First backpack camera bag I upgraded to a new camera and I needed something to hold it all. I wanted to go to a backpack instead of a bag and it was a great choice. This bag fits all my equipment. It also fits my iPad which I use with the camera via eye-fi. I carry two lenses, a flash, my camera and lens manuals, battery charger, extra battery, rocket blower and small cleaning kit, a couple filters and my wireless shutter. It also carries my monopod on the side and there is also a rain cover that pulls out of the bottom if you ever get caught in a shower. This beats carrying a bag! The shoulder straps are comfortable. I like having everything with me in case I need it.Date published: 2013-09-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Grzegorz from Great Backpack for film makers I have this backpack since 2009 and I'm very happy with this backpack. It helps me taking photos because I don't have to care about stuff carried secure in pigeonholes and when it rains I use AW Cover and I'm not worried about equipment. I'm taking photos in very diffrent situations, from parties through the weddings to off-road races and DSLR Video Fastpack are very helpfull in organising my photographic stuff. I strongly recommend it for everyone who takes 2-3 lenses and flashgun everyday ;)Date published: 2013-09-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Skyler from This product is highly recomended. For those of you who seek a non conspicuous bag for Urban Photography or street Photography for that matter, this bag is an excellent choice. This bag is very comfortable and accessible. You can pull out your camera without event take the bag of your bag. It is great if you need a fast access to your gear. The upper pocket for personal use is in the perfect size. The camera compartment is very well build and will protect the gear. the bags also come with weather protection. Do not ever buy a camera bag without that feature. Although this bag is improvement of a previous bag (The fast pack series), I think that it was wrong not to add the frontal pocket on the camera compartment. it was a great place to keep a small notebook MP3 player or whatever small thing you can think off.Date published: 2013-11-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceanman from Outstanding Gear The search for top quality all purpose travel gear that can protect my cameras and laptop ends with this Lowepro backpack. It offers prime time durability and protection. Not only is this bag a workhorse, it offers several customizable solutions for storage of my gear. The camera compartment measures in at 10.24" x 5.51" x 9.65" and easily accommodates my DSLR. I had my worries about storage space for my 15" laptop. The top loading laptop compartment provides just the right amount of real estate at 11.42" x 1.38" x 15.75". The roomy front compartment measures 6.69" x .079" x 9.25". Exterior dimensions are 12.99" x 9.84" x 18.70". Empty weight is just under four pounds. I was able to carry two extra lenses not including my camera mounted one, accessories and my laptop with no storage nightmares. The padded dividers are first rate and allow for easy customization.The quality of the exterior nylon black body is great. Unlike many knockoffs out there, the stitching job is superb. The zippers are first rate. The side entry pocket is sweet. With a quick rotation I've got my hands on my camera gear. I like the removable utility pouch. I primarily use it for storing cables and anything else that happens to find its way in there. Lowepro's signature hide away, all weather cover is still one of the best. It does a great job of keeping my gear dry and stores back into its compartment without complications. The padding on the nylon shoulder straps is very comfortable. The foldout tripod holder and strap are definitely a welcome addition. I'm not a big fan of any backpack waist belt system but this one is better then most. The gusseted side pocket is alright for temporary storage but nothing more. A more secure option would have been better. The carry handle has a great feel. The overall quality and versatility of this bag speaks for itself. Its not just a bag for DSLR cameras by any means. It easily accommodates my laptop, tablet, and host of other items. For air travel, I found out first hand that its the perfect carry on. When on board the plane I had zero problems with under the seat storage. With a limited lifetime warranty this Lowepro bag is definitely built to last. I highly recommend it.Date published: 2013-09-16Rated 4 out of 5 by dukeHenry from It"s all you need. I bought this a month ago and it's really suit to my needs. When travelling,I like carrying less. It able to carry my 15" laptop, 2 flashes, 2 lenses and another camera body. I got Canon 5D mark III and 450D. and also I can place my extra shirts and that's I like it more. And not to mention my Tripod is secured on the side of my bag and no worries when raining.Date published: 2014-07-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Fingolfin from Myriad Compartments Neatly Organized in a Lowepro Enginneering Masterpiece Purchased to protect (and keep dry) a Nikon DSLR 3100 with a 55-300 and 18-140 lens. This bag is organized neatly into a bottom quick grab section that has several moveable velcro pads entered from the outside by a double-zippered panel (note: a nice feature is a wide, nylon belt clip that adds peace of mind in keeping this compartment both closed from accidental openings but also secure). The top is well padded with several neat compartments (elastic bands for holding small objects tightly, mesh pockets, key holder, a full, removable zippered bag that can hold a myriad of smaller objects. There is even a hidden, zippered pocket at the back. On the outside, there is a zippered entry into a thin pocket that runs the length of the back of the bag to hold laptops, iPads, papers, etc. A single water bottle holder on one side as well as a secure, hidden, slim zipper compartment on the outside of the top section of the bag. Finally, I am embarrassed to admit this, but we were just about to return it because it was supposed to have a rain cover that we could not locate initially. After rechecking all bag crevices, we located an extremely well hidden, well placed, trim pull out rain cover - outstanding job, Lowepro!Date published: 2014-06-24Rated 5 out of 5 by DanoMan from If you have only one camera bag - This is a great choice Excellent all around bag. Comfortable in the city, traveling (carry-on compatible) or for casual hikes and day use. This bag was made for a proDSLR with 70-200mm attached plus 2 other lenses and a flash. This works great for me as the 70-200 is my default lens. I love the side access to the camera compartment as it makes this backpack almost as fast to get your gear as with a Sling Bag. My only gripe is that if you switch lenses in the field, you'll probably want to switch back to the 70-200 for stowage in the main compartment (or put the 70-200 in a lens case in the top). The 350 does have a more gear space, but I find I can can load up the 250 with more than enough gear that I wished I left some glass weight behind. The top pocket has a reasonable amount of room for misc. goods. You can comfortably carry a medium tripod. I don't use the Laptop compartment as much because my fat old brick of a laptop is a bit too bulky to be comfortable there (newer Netbooks fit great). I do use the computer compartment for flat paper storage and some collapsible reflectors fit well in there.Date published: 2013-09-04

How well will a Nikon D5100 with a 18-105 lens fit? And what size computer (dimensions please) will this bag accommodate?Your Nikon D5100 with 18-105mm lens should fit quite well in the DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW. It will also hold up to a 15" laptop.Date published: 2015-05-12

will this fit a canon 5d mark ii with grip and 24-105mm lens attached?Hello, The size of the grip will make the camera too large to fit in the side opening. You would need to step up to the larger DSLR Video Fastpack 350 to fit a 5D Mark II with grip: http://store.lowepro.com/dslr-video-fastpack-350-awDate published: 2014-10-27
I have the AW250. Awesome bag. But just 1 question - what is the padding impact absorption capability ? Friend of mine said the Vanguard cam bag (e.g Upside 48) padding is thicker. I guess it's the material quality & not thickness that counts. Any advice?Hello, Thickness of padding is only part of the protection story of a bag. You need to also take into consideration the foam density (it can be smaller but provide more protection than thicker foam). Our products are built using the optimal size to foam density ratio to deliver maximum protection in a slim profile.Date published: 2015-04-11
I bought the 350 for my GH4 and the bag is a lot larger than expected. The GH4 would be flopping around in the camera compartment even with rearranging the panels. How much smaller is the 250? Or would the 150 be better?Hello, If you are carrying just your GH4 with attached lens, your best bet would be the DSLR Video Fastpack 150: http://store.lowepro.com/dslr-video-fastpack-150-aw If you plan to carry additional accessories, such as additional lenses, flashes, etc., the 250 would be the way to go: http://store.lowepro.com/dslr-video-fastpack-250-awDate published: 2015-05-18
Will it fit my Panasonic GH4 with the Fhugen Hunu cage?Hello, As long as your camera plus accessory is smaller than the internal camera compartment, you will be fine.

Will this backpack fit under the seat in front of you on an airplane?Hello, This bag is carry-on compatible, so at the very minimum you would be able to fit it in the overhead bin of the plane.
