Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Fit My brother had recommended Lowepro to me when I began looking around for a camera bag. I found their website "Bagfinder" option very easy to use and it helped me narrow down my options from the multitude that were listed on the site. I was searching for a bag that would easily fit my Canon 5D Mark III, yet be compact enough for me to carry daily. It recommended a larger bag than what I ended up purchasing but I am so happy with it! It comfortably holds my camera and has plenty of pockets and space for other, smaller items (SD cards, batteries). Lowepro really knows how to make a comfortable, yet attractive, yet roomy camera bag. I am already looking at some of their larger bags for when I am carrying more gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A handy and complete shoulder bag I used this bag to carry my reflex, my two lenses and several accessories while traveling in big cities and during sea and mountains trips with no problems. I really like the amazing number of pockets it has and the weather protection lid. This bag is cleverly build with excellent materials and offers a great protection to my gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really easy to use bag, easy to access gear, brilliant! The bag has the potential to have numerous large and small compartments within it. It will easily accomodate one DSLR with 4 lenses plus ancillaries, battery grips etc. Access is easy and it's a strong weatherproof bag with lots of zip compartments within it. As long as you're prepared to lug all this heavy gear on your shoulder, this is the ideal bag for you. Quality wise, it's durable and looks after your precious kit really well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality hand grip Bought this one a few weeks before. However, second time I used this bag i noticed that the cover material over the hand grip starts to chip off. This is a sign of bad quality and i am very disappointed. I wrote about this to lowepro and I am waiting for an answer.

Question & Answer

I have a Nikon D600 with a 24-85 kit lens and another lens about the same size. I want to store the camera body, with lens attached, face down, and the other lens on the side. Will it fit in the Nova 160?

Asked by: StevenB
Yes, a lens about the size of your 24-85 will fit on its side. A lens much longer than about 3" will not fit sideways in the bag comfortably.

Hi I'm interested in the Nova 160 for my Nikon D5100 with a 18-55mm lens attached and a 55-300mm lens plus a flash unit. The info suggests that a 160 would hold all of this but, in the images, I can't see anywhere for the flash to go. Where is it housed?

Hi, I'm looking for a small shoulder bag to carry my canon 7D+ef-s15-85mm while hiking. Can you help me to make the choice between: Nova 140AW, 160AW, 170AW or Nova Sport 7lAW. The differenze between them are only few centimeters. Is the 140AW too small?
