Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag and terrific value I've had this bag for years and it offers superb protection for one camera (Nikon D810) and 4 primes. Mine has been rolling off cars, down staircases etc. without any harm whatsoever to my camera gear. Also, the flat top doubles as a makeshift table for taking notes etc., when carrying the bag to the front. I often use it with as a belt pack with the shoulder strap for extra support, particularly for long events (8-12 hours). The only serious downside is the plastic hooks connecting the shoulder strap to the bag. One of mine broke off after short time use. I've replaced the strap with one that has metal hooks, coming from another bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around great bag This is the perfect bag for any outdoor photography, but what I use it most for is weddings. I love having all of my gear right in front of me and hands free. The shoulder strap keeps it from bouncing, but the waist strap keeps my shoulders from hurting all day. The way it sits gives me a little shelf to steady my elbows if need be. I love the flip top and card pockets right in the flap. It's wide open and easy access to everything. I worried that it would be too big. I'm 5'4" and average build, so I didn't want it huge and flopping around and too heavy... it is the perfect size. It is not discreet by any means, but I had no intentions that it would be. If I had one suggestion to make it better, I'd say they could put a pull on the zippers of the main flap to make it even easier to open and close. I put an old camera strap across the two zippers, and now I can open and close the bag quickly with one hand. Love this bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great option when you don't need to take a lot of gear The Inverse 200AW is my go-to camera bag when I don't want to take a lot of gear. I have been using it, for about a year now, for everything from hiking trips to event coverage. The internal compartment is large enough to hold my Nikon D300s and attached 80-200mm f/2.8 lens. The bag also works well when holding my D300s, 28-70mm f/2.8, and one flash. The external mesh pockets work well for holding bottles of water, or additional gear. The front compression system works well to store rain jackets and the zipper pocket works well for holding lens pens and business cards. My only complaint are: I wish the bag had more media compartments, and I wish the compartments were on the lumbar strap instead of the main compartment flap. You have to remove the rain cover, in bad weather, in order to gain access to the main compartment door. I also wish the shoulder strap offered a little more padding or was able to distribute the load across a larger area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High mobility Pretty sure this bag has many advantages such as quick access to change lens, secured and high mobility. I own Inverse 200AW. This beltpack can keep my gears (50mm f/1.4, 24-70mm f/2.8 attached a body with grip and 70-300mm f/3.5) to shoot at indoor or outdoor activities on location. I also like to carry a backpack, so I can carry more lens or stuff in my short weekend trip. I also own Flipside 400AW. IF the flipside backpack can be made the volume slightly smaller, and the Inverse 200AW can be attached to the bottom of the flipside backpack. The two bags can be combined into one for traveling. After I checkin to the hotel, I can keep my backpack in the room or safety place. And I can pick some necessary gears to fit in my Inverse 200AW for travel / event shooting. That is my purpose for few days or weekend travel. For traveling is required a single backpack. For working is only required a beltpack or backpack. It becomes more flexible and secured on the travel. I love Inverse 200AW beltpack. Recently, I also purchased inverse 100AW as well. Thanks! Lowepro!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Smaller Kits I actually really liked this bag. Of use to other people who are considering it, is to know that I managed to fit my Canon 5D MkII with 24-105mm f/4 L attached, 17-40mm f/4 L (without the hood), 85mm f/1.8, 50mm f1/4, 500D close up filter, Circular polariser, rocket blower, spare battery and cards. The only criticism I had (which I fixed with a simple modification) was the absence of a D-Ring for the shoulder strap on the front of bag. The two on the rear are close together and when the bag is full it becomes unbalanced and tilts forward. If simple improvement would be to add a D-Ring to the front edge as an optional attachment point for the strap. Still, D Rings are easy to come by and sliding one over the compression strap behind the quick release fastener on the front, balanced the load and was a simple fix. I liked the strap a lot, but for added security when travelling, swap it for one by Pacsafe (maybe Lowepro could consider collaborating...). For this reason, metal D-Rings would be a bonus. Despite this, I still really liked this bag, but adding these suggestions to future models would make it my favourite bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to go!!!! This bag is my favorite to carry my gear. It is a 60D, 24-105, 70-200, flash 430, batteries, memory cards, wallet, phone, water bottle and more.... I have bought my here in Brasil to replace my top loader and it did well. If you do carry everything on your waist, it is pretty heavy, but if you use the shoulder strap it may help balance. Once you grab your camera and withdraw weigh from the bag, it is very light to carry, even with the lens and flash. I have taken this bag to some family meetings and I have all I need with me. I do recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me! Although the Inverse 200 could probably be designed to be more comfortable this bag does what I intended it to. Frequently I go out on my bike and want to take along my camera gear. Not wanting to only have a point & shoot I'd rather have my DSLR camera, an extra lens or two, and a flash along with certain accessories. This includes a T2i, 18-55 lens, a 55-250 lens, and a large flash leftover from my film days. The bag swallows all this up with enough space leftover for more. The waistbelt and shoulder strap give me something I can trust rather then having to trust a typical camera bag hanging from my shoulder. It stays in place when riding. It keeps my gear off the rear rack or in a pannier away from the shock and vibration. I'd love to use a backpack but nothing on the market fits both my needs and preferences, and this bag fills it. Now for my improvements to the bag - Metal D rings for the shoulder strap - Make the open pocket between the main compartment and the rear zipper compartment a little more useable by better enclosing the sides - A different shoulder strap would be nice. The one that comes with the bag doesn't seem to be of the same level of quality as the rest - Since I ride a bike I like the two zippers being separate since there's always the possibility of a weird spill and snag on something pulling the zippers back a bit. Maybe supply a small strap for those who want it to hook the two together, but don't require the bag to have the two zippers attached. - It would also nice if the velcro went all the way from one end to the other allowing the camera to be positioned somewhere else but absolute center if desired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bag This bag meets my needs but I do wish it were just a bit taller. My 55-300, when attached to the camera fits, but it is a tight fit. Excellent quality. I like having my gear in front of me, it makes it easy to change lenses or grab a filter.

If the length of these two cameras with lenses totals less than 12" there's a possibility that this gear would fit.

Asked by: bkatzy
Hello, We would definitely recommend taking a look at our online Bagfinder tool. It will allow you to narrow down your options by carrying style and list out all the gear you need to carry. A good "Bag in a Bag" type of product is our Photo Sport Shoulder products, which will fold down completely during travel if needed.

Can you add a pouch to the belt.

I might need more room. Can I add a lens pouch to the belt?
Asked by: gdjoslin
Yes, the Inverse 200 AW does have SlipLock™ attachment loops that if your pouch supports will be able to fit onto this bag.
