What customers say about "Key Specs"
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 150 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • My camera (with 16-50mm lens) along with the extra lens (55-210mm), and spare batteries fit very comfortably in the camera compartment.
  • The top compartment is perfect for wallets, keys, water bottles, and a light jacket. So I'm pretty happy with this bag for the price.
  • It fits my D5500 with two lenses in the lower compartment and has enough room in the top to pack lunch and sweater or an extra lens.
  • With a fullframe camera and lens in the bag, the main compartment has little to no space for other lenses. You can fit one normal size fullframe lens, but just barely.
  • I only carry my camera, external flash, extra lens, battery charger, nothing else fits in the camera compartment. If you carry a lot of great this isn't the best bag.
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 250 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • Apart from holding my camera and accessories, I was able to fit my binoculars in the camera compartment.
  • Two main compartments, one accessed from the front, the other from the back. was able fit two cameras and three lenses in it, and all was fairly well protected.
  • I was able to fit in the camera compartment 3 canon prime lenses (24mm, 35mm, and 85mm) and a 24-105 zoom lens as well as a 6D, and extra batteries.
  • Threads are fraying all over only after the first use and the camera compartment is tearing apart after just using if on one occassion.
  • Getting to the camera compartment quickly is a challenge, so plan ahead a little.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 150 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • Lowepro has done a good job with materials, construction, layout, and weight distribution.
  • Great bag if you're looking for something small and light. Highly recommended.
  • I wore it everyday, all day for three weeks. It never got uncomfortable and was the eprfect size to be carrying around all day!
  • Good size and comfortable to carry. Fits perfectly under the seats on planes. Took it on a Eurotrip and loved it
  • I really like the layout of this back pack, but I found it to create unbalanced weight distribution.
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 250 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • The across-the-chest straps and around the waist helped distribute the weight easily.
  • If you are looking for a solid day pack that can carry gear and odds and ends safely around town or on a modest afternoon hike, but is only the size of a school book bag, this is a good purchase.
  • The backpack was comfortable & fit perfectly under the airplane seat with another larger size tote bag.
  • It's the size i was looking for and i don't have that much equipment yet, but there's room for a couple of more things in the backpack.
  • If you need a medium size camera bag, you should get this bag.

What customers say about "Protection"
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 150 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • The rain cover works great! We go caught in a couple downpours and with the rain cover on, the backpack stayed completely dry!
  • All the convenience of a lightweight day trip backpack but with the protection and storage of a camera bag.
  • With this bag you can go out in any weather, it is really not afraid of water.
  • The padding material does not breathe well, compared to looser meshes.
  • The compartment designed to hold both the camera body and lenses is rather cramped. The zipper to access this compartment also faces the photographer's back, which is rather awkward.
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 250 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • Smart design keeps your most valuable gear well protected. I've gone hiking in some pretty moderate rain and the water seems to bead off.
  • Great size for the day at a great price. I love that the camera pocket zips from the inside.
  • You can fit enough food in the inner compartment, and a light jacket too. It also has a zipped pocket for your valuables and a small keychain.
  • The camera compartment can be customized and has good padding that gives me more protection.
  • On some of the camera dividers, the stitching came right off, exposing the innards of the padding.

What customers say about "Features"
Lowepro Photo Hatchback BP 150 AW II Camera Case (Black/Gray)
  • I like that the camera bag can come out of the backpack and then you have a full sized backpack to use if needed.
  • Very comfortable straps, the straps and back have nice padding, the chest strap and waist strap are very nice for longer walks/hikes.
  • The bag features an all weather cover that is built into the bottom of the bag, so rain or shine the gear will be protected.
  • This backpack is super useful as a camera bag, but also transforms into a regular backpack when needed!
  • The two side pockets are about 6-7" deep and wide enough to fit a water bottle.

  • The removable camera compartment is a great design and it's actually very easy to reach the camera even when it's still on your back.
  • The front pocket can easily accommodate a 10" tablet, a book or two, magazines, or other flat objects.
  • There are two water bottle sleeves that can take a slimmer bottle (think 24-26 oz. bottle for a bike, not a wide Nalgene for camping).
  • I appreciate the water bottle pouches on both sides, nice and stretchy and seems to keep things secure.
  • I can fit my water bottle in one side pocket and the amazon basics tripod in the other.
