ProTactic BP 250 AW is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PERFECT Sized Bag Bought this bag pack about two months ago, and it has already been put through the wringer. Hauled on a three week tour through Europe and this thing was the perfect size to get everything I needed for the day, plus a little extra. Enough room for my Nikon w/ 35mm prime lens, a 50-200mm, some extra batteries and SD cards, and a water bottle, book, and miscellaneous items on top of that. Perfect size for storing underneath plane seats without taking up too much room, and for quickly getting in and out of Ubers and taxis with ease. The straps aren't the most comfortable, but the whole thing breathes very well, and is a pleasure to carry throughout the city. Also, I feel that I have to mention that this pack fits the newer model MacBook Pro 13 PERFECTLY. The compartment is big enough for the MBP 13 with even a little room to spare. So, if the 11" limit is making you question getting the 350 (like it was for me) know that this pack will fit modern MBP 13s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exaclty what I was looking for I am using the BP 250 AW for a bit more than a month now and am very happy with my choice. What I wanted was a bag for a full set of a mirror-less camera and lenses (full PRO set of Olympus in my case). I also wanted side openings for quick lens access and tripod attachment. My setup works as planned. I am accessing the camera with the attached mid range lens from the top, the 40-150mm and the 7-14mm from opposite sides. Dividing the interior for accessing the 40-150mm with attached hood (detached tripod collar) took several revisions but works now fine. The interior then still has room for the macro lens, tripod collar, filters, and cleaning utilities. I have been using the bag with attached full size tripod (6lb & 26" folded length) and that works still with swinging the bag from one shoulder and side accessing a sens. But this is clearly at the limit of what should balanced from one shoulder. A few thoughts: (1) Using a tripod and side access limits adding further exterior pockets as there will only be one vertical lane left. Only every second stitching is wide enough for an attachment. (2) The exterior zip pocket running down the front side is very useful and I was not even aware from the product description and images. This also has a snap hook for car keys or similar. (3) The supply of dividers as ample but still somewhat limiting. The max-fit dividers are easy to place but have a smooth surface that can not be attached to other connectors. If all these dividers where also felt-covered, the setups could be much better fine-tuned. (4) This bag can be combined with a Light Utility Belt as the pockets to stow away the small hip belt are reach-through. This allows adding the two hip attachments with 4 more SlipLock positions each. However the belts the BP 250 comes with are not detachable in a reversible way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel bag Bought this bag for a motorbike trip to Nepal, India and Bhutan. Needed a backpack to carry on the bike and for ease of access to camera while riding. Also used for trek to Tigers Nest Monestry in rain and snow which provided great protection from the elements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small day bag with unlimited options! I purchased this while looking for a supplemental bag to my larger primary ProTactic 450. The ProTactic 250 is perfect for those quick day trips where you need just enough to stay dry and have what you need easily accessed. I wanted to fit a Mavic Pro and a single DSLR and this does that! This bag is phenomenal and comfortable! Attachment points in a standard tactical bag format with a focus on what a photographer needs inside, perfect! The added benefit between the ProTactic series 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.

Can I carry the following, A7R2 with a 70-200 f/2.8+24-70 f/2.8+16-35 f/2.8+Microsoft Surface Pro 4, filters, cable and adapter

Asked by: UmitCuk
I don't think so. The ProTactic 350 AW would provide a better fit for this gear and the 70-200 will need to be stored off-camera.
