ProTactic 450 AW LE is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super camo multi-purpose optics and electronics bag! This bag is a super-awesome photo/optics bag with a great color and camo pattern. It's well padded, comfy, and holds a large amount of camera gear. I can't fit my Nikon D7100 with a 200-500mm zoom lens attached as it's just too long, but I can fit them both if the zoom lens is detached from the camera (and zoom lens is placed from side to side with access from the side pockets). Overall, it's a good bag but I wish it had more pockets for extra personal stuff and a water bottle holder that was incorporated into the bag (not a separate module as it is currently) and that holds a standard 32 oz Nalgene water bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bag!!! My wife purchased the limited edition for me as a gift and it's just what I needed. This bag has room for all my gear, 2 camera bodies, my Nikon 200-500 and Sigma 150-600 plus my smaller 3 lenses. It even has room for my speed light and my lenscoat rain gear. I live in Northwest Florida and mainly shot wildlife and the areas I trek into are pretty thick. This bag makes it easy to get my gear to and from these areas so much easier and with less work. Thanks Lowepro once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bag For All Your Electronic Goodies The bag is perfect. It fits our canon 5d mark iv with a few lenses and accessories. It also fits our iMac laptop with all the other gear. I do wish they will make this exact bag but in a bigger model (to be able to fit more lenses and longer/wider lenses). Its comfortable and stylish! We will be purchasing another one shortly for more of our gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cavernous and rugged backpack with ability to easily strap extra gear on I've really enjoyed this backpack and perhaps the best feature is I can customize it for each trip, adding additional smaller pouches to the exterior using the rows of loops along the outside of the pack. The robust waist and shoulder straps help offset the weight of the equipment. Sound purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possible the perfect bag! I have owned over a dozen camera bags. Always looking for the perfect bag. This may be it. I used it on a recent trip to Jordan and Israel. It worked great. Quick access to two separate cameras without opening the entire bag and exposing everything to the dust of Jordan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modular and Durable, Exactly what I want! I purchased this because my last bag was overdue for replacement. It was overdue because I was searching for the perfect bag I could use for what I do as a landscape and outdoor photographer. I needed one or two camera storage and an occasional GoPro, or Mavic Pro and maybe even a racing drone attached to the outside in the future. I didn't think I would ever find something, until I found the ProTactic 450. This bag is phenomenal and comfortable! Attachment points in a standard tactical bag format with a focus on what a photographer needs inside, perfect! Also in my search was a smaller bag I could use for day trips with less gear to lug around. The ProTactic 250 was perfect! And the added benefit between these two bags is I can transfer things from one to the other in a second! I can keep my gear stowed in external (or internal) gear bags made by LowePro like the ViewPoint CS 40 and CS 80. Standard tac accessories fit perfectly as well! It also comes with a small accessory pack, bottle pouch, and tripod cup in the bag. That was one of the questions i had before purchase. Overall this is a versatile bag that looks to be my primary for years to come! I can't wait to get my stuff dialed in for organized and interchangeable storage and transport.

Question & Answer

Is the ProTactic 450 waterproof? Does it come with a weather cover? Do the zippers have any waterproofing seals? Since it is not made to compress will it fit under the seat as a personal carry on? If not which bag would you recommend with this capacity?

Asked by: Zach
In the literal sense the ProTactic AW series is "water-resistant"; not "waterproof". It does come with our All Weather cover, which increases its water-resistance. I do not believe it would fit under an airliner seat. our ProTactic 350 AW is more likely to meet that criteria, though it will depend on the particular type of aircraft.

I am looking for an outdoor/hiking backpack but also one that I can use as a carry on while flying to pack my camera gear in. I already believe this will accommodate my camera, lenses and gear but how is it as a carry on or could I have some issues?

Asked by: Missinmontana23
You'll want to compare this pack's external dim. of 13.70 x 10.63 x 19.21 in to your specific airline carry-on guidelines.

Is the ProTactic 450 AW compressible enough (if not filled to capacity) to fit International overhead dimension of 21.7 hi x 13.8 wide x 9.9 deep (inches). I am most concerned about the 9.9 inch depth measurement. Thanks!

Asked by: MJ55
This would be difficult to say unless one had an overhead compartment for testing. The ProTactic's semi-rigid construction does not lend itself to compression as easily as many of our other packs.

Hi,  Can I fit a Nikon D7200 and a nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 G attached ? Thanks,

Asked by: Izzyof
Yes, with internal divider repositioning.  I carry my Canon 5D with a Canon 100-400 attached.

Would this fit a canon 750d with a sigma 150-600m lens attached?

Asked by: Ed Morris
It is long enough, but you would have to gut the interior and start all over with the dividers.  You would have difficulty doing that and still retaining the side entry capability, but it could be done.  It's a roomy case/pack.

Can the ProTactic 450 also provide body-side access like the Flipside so one can access gear without putting the bag down?
