Field Station (Dark Olive) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Than Just For Your Camera! This is an extremely versatile bag. I am a geologist and this bag is great to put all of my essentials in and take with me at each station. I simply drop my heavy and bulky pack and head off with this around my waist. It fits my compass, my field notebook fits on the board perfectly, colored pencils/pens/etc, a small camera, and some misc. things. The inside is completely adjustable which makes it that much more versatile. I also use this hiking (water bottle holders on sides, snacks, phone, camera, keys, etc. easily fit) and birding every once in a while. I enjoy photography as well and my DSLR even fits! Great all around bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product for birding in the field! I'd always been looking for a bag that could take a pair of binorculars, my bird book, and a few other items to carry on birding trips in the field. I came across Lowe Pro's Field Station recently, and it was love at first sight - bought two from for my wife and I. The Field Station is large enough to take my Nikon 10 x 42 binoculars, my copy of Inskipp and Grimmet's Field Guide to the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent, an iPad, a notebook and pens, has mesh side pockets for water bottles, and yet is compact and convenient enough to carry using the comfortable belt straps around my waist. This way, I have binoculars and other essentials within easy reach and access without fumbling around in my backpack for them. Superb product, and I will unhesitatingly recommend it!

Question & Answer

Will the Field Station bag have enough room for a pair of binoculars that are 6.8 inches x 5 inches (17.3 x 12.5 cm)? If yes, is it a tight fit?
