Flipside Sport 15L AW is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bag, just like all their products I really like the bag and it works great. I do have a couple issues. the chest strap pops off to easily, I have to wear it lower because of a shorter upper body. Inserting it from the top would help. also I find that when accessing the bag from your waist the first zipper, closes very easily, but the second zipper is harder to close because of the weight shift, the side bows out. You have to pull up on the tab which is to small and harder to grab and pull, since it is up against your body. I like that I can carry a bladder, but it eliminates the side pocket, maybe a couple of small pockets on the flap side?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, just minors suggestions This is a great product. I have travelled around Montreal and Toronto with it. Its no so big, easy to carry. The idea to have secure access just relaying support on the belt of the backpack really works great. My suggestions: - One big pocket for small stuff doesn't work. I need at list to small pockets for SD cards (news and used), and one small pocket for remote control. - The strap for the chest sometimes snaps out, so I had to put a backup little cord to avoid loosing them. - A little more room for a jacket in the camel-back compartment. That's all, I like your products very much, this is the forth product I buy from you, and is my best bought. I also like it's orange, and no so serious as the other products of the portfolio. They work great but color usually is missing. This is not the case, I'm very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Backpack Bought it and two days later, left for Costa Rica for a week long birding and hiking tour in the rainforest. I broke it in under extreme conditions and worked as designed. Needed one more area for maps etc..but then maybe I should have gotten the larger one. For it's size, it worked well. Only thing I would ask for if Lowepro would change is add a strap or holder for a mono pod. Had to tie the mono pod in the place where the tri-pod was to go. Other than that, Loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Canon 1Dx+1.4+300/2.8ii attached I have many Lowepro cases. Particularly I like the flipside design. I have recently bought a "sport" version of this design - Flipside Sport 15L, for the purpose of taking skiing pictures with long lenses. Even it is not explicitly declared by Lowepro, it fits inside: - Canon 1Dx + ext 1.4iii + 300/2.8ii (hood on & reversed) - all attached together! - 70-200/2.8ii - extra 1Dx battery - sun-sniper strap. Outside, I attached monopod GITZO GM5561T. The outside pocket still has some room for small personal stuff and lens cloth, etc. Capability of fitting long lens with extender attached to 1Dx considering the overall small size of the bag and perfect wearing comfort is really outstanding. I had it comfortably on my back all the day while myself actively skiing. Waist belt and chest strap worked perfectly. It all felt so fine that I even had not needed to put off my skis (even on steep slope) while using the bag. This is very useful when you need adaptively change you position on the ski track and be quickly ready to take the pictures. There are not many bags fitting the gear stated above and still giving you freedom of doing active sport. Additional bonus is the safe flipside design on its own. There is nothing accessible from the outer side of the bag - obviously useful when standing in the crowd of people. But less obvious is the fact that you can lay down the bag on the ground/snow/etc and it keeps all the dirt and water/snow out of your gear and when you put it back on you still have dry/clean back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pack is amazing This is my go to pack while on small day hikes and what not. The tripod holder is very study and the pack is very comfortable for even grueling hikes! I recommend this bag over any other i have used. The only thing i wish was different is the belt strap, I feel it needs to be able to distribute the weight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile pack Very confortable pack even when loaded with over 10-15 pounds of gear. Love the design, color and functionality - really great not having put down the bag to switch lenses. Like too the removable tote. However, the extra flap/fabric on the tripod side is useless - better use it for holding batteries, menory cards or any other small items I wouldn't mind to pay extra and have a small inner bag for things like flash, cords, plates etc, instead of leaving it loose inside the main area Th straps are good, but the chest starp should have vertical stops. The waist straps work well, but the sliding buckle comes off easly under pressure. Last but not least, it could use some shoulder compression straps - like in backpacking packs, to adjust positioning with body when carrying a heavy load

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is designed for ease of use and is also very comfortable The Flipside Sport 15L AW is one of the best purchases I have ever made. The construction is strong and adaptable to your needs. I was skeptical about how easy it would be swinging it around to use but to my surprise it was a breeze and it allowed me to change my lens efficiently and quickly. Definitely a must have!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not completely happy with promised fittings As a Dutch person living in Cyprus with its harsh sunlight, high humidity & dust, it was the orange colour & weatherproof ability that made me decide to buy this product together with my Canon 5D MIII 24-105mm, 50mm, Speedlite 640. That worked well. However, after purchasing the 70-200mm lens & hood there is no way all of the above can fit in the bag despite the statement/image it should. I have tried all sorts of positions to no avail. As a wedding planner/photographer this is the minimum gear I need when at work. Any solutions are welcome.
