Reviews
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great idea, not so good implementation This backpack has many good features and the volume needed for backcountry skiing with a camera. The camera compartment is very easy to access quickly in the field and has room for an 80-200/2.8 in addition to a camera body with lens. The upper compartment has room for all the odds and ends needed for skiing in the backcountry. The pack sits stable on my back while skiing, both uphill and downhill. However it seems like there has been to much focus on weight shaving during design. - The hip belt buckle broke after only four days of use in the field. - The shoulder straps and hip belt are to thin and flimsy to support the weight of the pack when fully loaded. The shoulder straps on the Photo Hatchback 22L (which I also have) are far better - and that is a smaller pack. - The adjustment buckles on the shoulder straps "slide" to easily. I have to adjust the shoulder straps every time I put on the backpack, which is annoying. - The lid compartment is IMHO too small to be very usefull. I own more than 10, maybe closer to 20 different LowePro products and this is the first product which disappoints me. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by is a great product I've always used Lowepro. This is one of the best bags I've had, I used five different models .... light, comfortable, magnificent November 6, 2013

Answer: 
The Photo Sport Series was designed for active adventures (such as running, rock climbing, etc) so there isn't a dedicated tripod attachment system (it will fit trekking poles if needed).

If you are looking for a lightweight backpack with a dedicated tripod attachment system, we would recommend taking a look at the Flipside Sport 20L:

Answer: 
it is very easy to carry a tripod on this pack as long as it is a smaller travel tripod which I think the Monofroto 190 is. Use the side pocket and secure it using the two side straps. I carry the tripod head down so if the tripod feet get muddy or wet they don't mess up the inside of the pocket. The side pocket is made our of a very thin but strong material with a lot of elasticity to it. By the way I use the smaller AW 200 pack so this larger one could probably carry a larger tripod if someone would want to carry one.

Why does this come only in black?

Orange was excellent. Red or Lime Green would be great too. But black is just dull and it overheats in the sun.

The Photo Sport 30L currently only comes in the Slate Grey color. Products are often released with a limited number of color options and will expand over time if there is interest. Our product team is always looking at bringing out additional colors and I will pass on your feedback!

How large is the top compartment?

The specs do not specify the dimensions of the top (non camera) compartment. The dimensions, and maybe volume would be very useful!

Answers

Answer: 
It wasn't designed to hold skis, but another option would be a bag like the Rover Pro 35L http://store.lowepro.com/rover-pro-...

It has latch points that could withstand the weight of skis and bindings and they are located in places that could support carrying skis.
