Rated 5 out of 5 Finally a great trekking backpack for photographers!!! I've tried many and many backpacks to fold my camera and lenses during my trekking in mountain but never find a great trekking backpack, only photo-backpack without trekking features. Now I find Rover-Pro 45 AW and I will buy also Rover-pro 35 AW for my wife. With RoverPro 45 AW I can bring with me my 5D mkIII with BG, Canon 17-40 f4, Canon 70-200 f4 or 100-400, extender 1,4x and 2x and some accessories like timer and filters, jacket for rain, accessories for climbing and some sandwich for breakfast.... everything I need for my trekking and nature expeditions... THANK YOU LOWEPRO!!!!! September 15, 2013

This bagpack is great and I can carry all My equipment at the same bag. January 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product but could be greater I do a lot of wildlife photography which usually means spending several days ay a remote location. I have tried many bags and this one comes closest to meeting my needs. It is very well made and very comfortable to wear. There are several 'improvements" that I would recommend. Personal preference of course 1) More individual pouches on straps or main pack for smaller items that require easy / quick accessibility such as flash light, GPS , knife,cell phone etc. 2) a divider to separate the main compartment into a top and bottom storage compartment. 3) a tripod holder similar to the style on the Treker AW. 4) an optional camo cover for us wildlife photographers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great backpack, not so good gear capacity Very comfortable suspension - well built. Only problem is the two removable pouches, which just don't seem to carry much, given the large size of this pack, especially compared with other Lowepro bags roughly this size. Also would like, in view of the carrying capacity, to see more straps on the outside to carry coats, etc., and pouches for hats, gloves - more storage, in short. But overall a nice piece of equipment that I can make do, especially for long hikes. Best solution for that. They were very, very helpful in Customer Service, incredibly prompt - great company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Workhorse - Great update on the Lowepro Rover AW II I simply love this backpack and all its integrated features! It's been great for backpacking with and without camera gear. The only pack for serious photographers and backpackers! It also doubles as my kit bag for all but the most formal photo shoots. It fits an insane amount of gear. I love the rain cover and hydration-ready pocket. I'd love to see some modular pouches to add more gear to the waist belt! September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product I went to Antarctica and it was of great help. Would only serve a divider between the bags and the container top. Tks Antonio Lonigro Italia September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great climb plus Great photos The rover Pro AW is exactly what I've wanted for a long time: A large backpack with a decent carrying system that is stable and easy and convenient through pad and power through a metal wire that has many options for mounting and also can hold a camera with lenses, tripod and accessories. The backpack is available in two sizes: 35 l and 45 l I opted for the larger version, which has two camera inserts. The large insert is ... intended for the camera, flash, lenses, and the small insert is designed for a telephoto lens. So many accessories I have never really like and I do not have a telephoto lens. My idea was that I use only one camera compartment and use the extra space for hiking gear. When I got the backpack I was pleasantly surprised that my camera, some hi-tech filters, remote shutter release and two lenses (one attached, an additional one) fit in the tray for the telephoto lens. So I then had more space than I expected. The Rover 45L also contains two very handy removable camera cases that provide additional storage space when I want to use the pack for a hike and not need camera gear. The cases have movable, padded dividers, a removable accessory pouch with interior and exterior zippered mesh pockets and webbed grab handles. Multiple storage options and compartments give me freedom access my gear as I prefer. The gear can be retrieved either from the top or side hatch openings. The other plus is that front stash pocket is large enough for my jacket or helmet. On the side is a compartment for a hydration system. The tube may be passed through an opening in the tray and attached to a strap. Small pockets on the hip belt are attached for mobile phone, compass, compact camera or whatever. The lid is a reachable from the outside compartment. I am very pleased with small pockets on the camera insert. In its lid there are both inside, and outside, two pockets for filters and memory cards. A few things I wasn’t crazy about: the hip belt straps are excessively long and hang down to my knees when the belt is cinched tight. The lid pocket is so small that it’s pretty much full with only a headlamp, a couple granola bars, a pair of gloves and a Leatherman stuffed inside. Accessing your camera gear via the front panel requires you to lay the pack on the ground with the back panel and shoulder straps in the dirt, mud or snow, guaranteeing that you’ll get your back dirty when you put the pack on again. In my opinion, a great product. I wish more of these backpacks, like those from other manufacturers. November 6, 2013

Additional inserts

I've bought one of your Rover Pro 45l backpacks and I'm really impressed with it but I need more storage!

Do you sell additional insert packs (like the ones that come with it) so I can house my second DSLR with it's lens on ready to shoot?

Hopefully so...

Hey Ben,

Currently we do not sell only the insert alone, but I'll mention to our product team that this would be helpful in your workflow.

I am likely going to get this bag as it is nearest to meeting my needs but there is one design error in my view and of one or two others who's comments I have read elsewhere on the web. The lack of divider means that if you remove the camera bags then need to re-insert them and use as a back pack again, anything in the top may easily slide down. Plus when the packs are inserted if you put food, say a packet of sweets or nuts into that section and anything spills out it could get into the small spaces between the camera packs and outer. A simple divider which can be found in other bags.

There is a bag but significantly smaller than this one by a company that I shall call T - the top section has a very firm, protective open topped, 5 sided insert that is removable. So this can also become an "empty" ruck sack without any dividers whatsoever.
