Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Solid, strudy, durable - like a pickup truck This bag is nice size, about what I expected. It is the of "most" backpacks. The material is nice and lightweight, but hopefully not at the expense of durability. It is made from a blend of poly & denier. The layout is nice but I have one tweak if I could re-design then it would be all 5-stars. I would allow for another 2 inches of depth so that a 15-inch laptop could fit WITH the camera storage box in place. (I bought this backpack to travel with my camera, laptop, and tablet. The only way for the 15-inch laptop to fit is to un-velcro divider flap separating the top main compartment and the camera storage box and slip the laptop down and against your back, in between comfort pads and camera gear. Not ideal because it will block access to my camera when laptop is inside, but will allow for laptop in travel such on flights when I do not need my camera.) Pros - Design #Sleek, color, contours and straps and of course camera storage. The Side pocket/holders with stretch fabric for tripods, water bottles, or small cameras. The weather cover is great, but doubt I will ever use it. But should I need it, it doesnt take up much room and its there. Cons - Accessory pockets are very average. Depth needs to be added. The bag does almost most things, not all things. Single stictched should straps, I hope they hold & last. Tablet/small laptop pocket is tight, not much room for even the case on the tablet (10.1"). Future improvements? - 2 inch dept. Also a gopro mount on front right should strap at upper chest for hikes/trips would be a game changer. More accessory pocket stuff September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality bag! I bought this bag primarily for my trip through Central America but I continue to use it as my primary storage bag. It is able to fit my Nikon D7000 with a lens on, as well as an additional lens and an external flash. Great padding and security. One of my favourite features is that the camera isn't accessible while wearing it. This is great when travelling through countries where pickpocketing is a big concern. The built in rain cover is also fantastic, I have used it on many many occasions. Love it and would highly recommend! September 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish, sporty, well designed I love this bag, perfect for advanced amateur photographers. I am able to fit my D90, 18-70mm 70-300mm 50mm 60mm and a flash in this bag, with room for a jacket, water bottle, iPad Mini, filters, SD cards and more. It is very sporty looking and very well made. I have been using Lowepro bags for years and this is by far my favorite! September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slim and stylish I bought this bag mainly for traveling, like the design is so simple and stylish, not like any other camera bag in the market. It can be my main day bag when I don't carry any camera gear. Love the slim design that can allows me to slip throw the crowd. The real compartment design for camera storage keep my gear safe and sound. Fit my D700 with 50mm, 20mm 28-105 mm lenses, flash, ipad mini and joby gorrilapod with no problem, and plenty of space to spare for my jacket, food & water, passport and map. Loving the bag and it will continue to travel with me. October 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great camera + all purpose backpack My Gear: 5D Mark III, 24-105L, 50 1.4, 580EXII, 2x Pocketwizards, batteries, cords, etc. Pros: - Incredibly lightweight, it barely weighs anything (a real bonus when carrying your already heavy gear) - Camera box removes and top compartment folds down and turns into a traditional backpack. If I'm out on a hike with the family or traveling and don't have my camera gear, I use this bag (1 bag, so many uses) - Has a place that fits my iPad 2 perfectly Cons: - Camera compartment is a bit small, I have to think about what gear to bring before a shoot rather than bringing everything and the kitchen sink. Overall, this is currently my everyday, go to bag. Perfect for hikes with the family, day trips around town and travel in general. September 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slim enough and enough space for my gear to travel I try to find a new backpack that could fit all my photo stuff, I already have a lowepro flipside AW 400 but is too bulky specially to travel for vacations, I only need something slimmer and that could fit my basic photo gear. So I found the new Photo Hatchback 22L AW, and it was not until I saw it in the photo store that I was convinced that that was the camera backpack that I needed, if fits my basic camera gear, a 5D Mk II with the 35mm lens, gopro, a leica m4 with its lens and a lightmeter in the camera compartment, also some film inside, also carry 3 extra batteries, 6 memory cards, ipad, hard drive, card reader and some other stuff, perfect to travel as I said, and is not so bulky as the Flipside AW400, the only thing that needs to be improved is the section for the camera needs to have more ways to configure the slots to carry your camera stuff. But I think this camera bag is very versatile to travel light with you camera. September 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Backpack for Any Job When I went looking for a photo backpack, my first stop was LowePro. Being a young, amateur photographer, I was price-conscious, but I wanted a pack that would suit my needs. I wanted something sleek, modern, versatile, and spacious. This bag did all of that and more. Working as a camp counselor, I found this bag to be perfect for me when the photo insert was taken out. When I go to most events to photograph, I am able to carry my Canon 7D w/ 28-135mm attached, a 70-300mm lens, extra batteries, cords, and still have some space. The top portion, while a bit small (you have to sacrifice some space to keep the bag from being huge), is great for carrying other accessories, whether it be an extra shirt, snacks, or a Steno. Overall, I believe this bag is the best value for your money. Spacious, light, and comfortable, the LowePro Photo Hatchback 22L AW is an amazing bag that will allow you to transport your gear comfortably and in style. September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for everyday use and the outdoors, too! Pros: + Fits my small Nikon D40 with a 35mm lens, plus 3 more compact zoom lenses (10-20 Sigma, 18-55, and 55-200 Nikkors); and a SB40 flash unit; + very light bag and regular daypack design that doesn't attract attention and fit my small upper frame; + can remove the inner padded camera box (with handle and repels water) with DSLR gear and bring in the supermarket; + upper compartment is for the rest of the photo accessories, and battery chargers; + side pockets can fit a water bottle and an umbrella; and the SD card pocket really keeps my extra memory card; + AW cover protects gear especially from rain, and mud when opening camera compartment on the ground; and + front and inner pockets can hold keys and an ultra small laptop Con: (yes, one only) - the sternum lock is not secure enough that strap with the (female) latch was detached from the shoulder strap (and was lost!) in one of my trips and I can't find a replacement for it even from bag makers. This feature is important if I carry a heavy gear and for long treks so that the shoulder straps don't slip off :( but... I still use this bag most than my other LowePro messenger bags.

Hello Mark,

The depth of the bag is not quite long enough to fit the extra lenses you mentioned.

Answer: 
I went down my local photography store & had a game of bag Tetris with it. All my gear fits nicely. My larger lens is about half an inch bigger stood on end but I can still close the compartment and it doesn't bulge out at all, so you wouldn't know the difference and it doesn't dig into your back either. Still comfy on the back...

Answers

Answer: 
You would have to turn the camera sideways in the camera compartment to make it close, but we wouldn't consider it a fit.

The battery grip pushes the size of the camera a bit out of the range of a comfortable fit.

We would recommend stepping up to the larger DSLR Video Fastpack 250 or Flipside Sport 15L.

Answer: 
You are correct, the D4 will not fit in the camera compartment.
The camera compartment size for the Photo Hatchback 22L is:

22.5 x 11.5 x 19.5 cm (8.86 x 4.53 x 7.68 in)

The Flipside Sport 20L has a dedicated compartment in front for a tablet and will fit your D4 easily.

No, the largest laptop size that would fit in this bag is the 11" Mac Book Air.

Will a Canon 5D with 24-70L attached fit in the camera compartment?

I'm hoping to take this pack on a trip out west with some shorter day hikes. Will pack my upad, canon 5D and a few other small electronics (chargers, etc.). Also, thinking of strapping a small tripod into the water bottle slot. Is this doable? Mostly the camera I'm worried about.

Answer: 
If your 5D doesn't have a grip, you will be fine. Yes, I use a Joby Tripod in the mesh pocket on the side and it works great.
