Pro Trekker 600 AW (Mica/Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bag let down by poor zip and a few design oversights I bought this bag because it was the only bag on the market at the time that would hold 2 long primes with a selection of smaller lenses. Overall, the bag works well, but I have found several design / quality issues. 1, The laptop is located in the lid. The lid doesn't have any way of stopping the laptop falling out when you open the lid - I found this out to my expense. 2, The shoulder straps slacken themselves off as you are walking and need constant adjustment 3, The rubber flap that makes the "weatherproof" zip weatherproof, gets stripped off after a couple of times opening and closing the bag. I have had 2 bags on warranty claims, all with the same characteristics. I have been told I won't be getting a third. The zip isn't a Lowepro error, rather a YKK product that keeps failing. EVERY Pro Trekker 600 that I have seen has the same problem, including the ones on Lowepro's own stands at trade shows. 4, There are locations on the bag for 3 tripods - I don't know anyone who uses 3 tripods on a shoot. I use one monopod, and the areas at the side of the bag for tripods allow a monopod to slip straight through as there is no bottom to the pouch. This part of the design makes no sense to me. I have to sacrifice one of the side pockets for the monopod which is inconvenient and gets the pocket full of mud and grit, rendering it useless for camera equipment in the future. If I didn't have the above problems, I would give it a 4 star rating. Remember that the bigger the bag, the more kit you will put in it, and the heavier it gets!

Also, how are tripods, monopods, and hiking sticks supposed to be carried on the sides?

Asked by: dpleasants
Hello, There is a tripod foot at the front of the bag that will hold the feet of your tripod or monopod and there are straps on the front to hold the top of your tripod. On the side of the bag there is an open pocket that allows your tripod or trekking poles in.

How do you turn the top into a waist pack?

Asked by: dpleasants
Hello, There are four clips that attach the top lid/waist pack to the bag. To remove, you simply un-clip the waist pack and attach along your waist. (See attached image)

I seem to have misplaced the big card or instructions that came with the bag. So do you have a pdf of it since there is no owners manual?
