Fastpack BP 250 AW II (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag Liked the previous version and this one is even better. I carry a Canon 5DsR camera with 80-200 lens, a 1.4 extender, a flash, and chargers in the bottom compartment. Though it may not be made for it, I fit another Canon 5D with a 24-70 lens in the top compartment, and a small point & shoot (Canon P120, in a pouch). A 15" computer fits the back slot with an I-Pad as well. A small tripod fits the side pocket. The waist band is removable, a plus since I don't often climb mountains. They've added a helpful strap to hold the bag on top of my other luggage. The bottom outer flap can be used to attach a light jacket at the airport or while hiking. The bag fits under airline seats and overhead compartments. To protect the top camera I've added my own foam since the top seems to be made for non-camera use (thin padding). Padding up there is my only recommendation to Lowepro for improvement. (If they do it, I'll buy that one too.)

Laptop is 15.5x10.5". Want to carry it safely, but also need the bag to be appropriate as my carry on when flying...  Will this bag work? This bag is 10.24" deep (backwards from my back while carrying) and doesn't compress, correct?

Asked by: Riverman
The Fastpack BP 250 AW II is within the accepted size for carry-on bags, but is to large for the sizing of a carry-on personal item. This is true for most airlines and flights, though specifics for carry-on sizing does change so we always suggest checking with your specific airline to make sure. The bag is fairly rigid for the protection of your camera and gear and compresses a bit, but not much. The external dimensions of this bag are 12.2" wide x 10.24" deep x 19.69" height.

For your gear we'd recommend the Pro Runner BP 350 AW II as it will give you the best fit. The bag is also a bit more compact. You can view it here:

How accommodating is the tripod pocket on the side? The example tripod looked a bit small.

Asked by: mikegeig
The tripod pocket is small, both in diameter and in depth. I'd prefer a more secure way to carry a tripod.
