Lowepro Classified 250 AW Expert Reviews
Redslider reviews the Lowepro Classified 250 AW and writes;
“The Classified 250 is tall. Too tall for my manual 35mm camera needs. I guess this works really well for digital SLR camera users with bulky 70-200 mm DX zooms. The height may also be convenient if you’re storing a laptop in the bag. Fortunately, the height isn’t an issue for me. It feels really save, dropping the camera in such a deep “hole”. I also kept a rain jacket on top of the camera for a while, enough space for that as well. Smaller people may find the height inconvenient, though.”
Lowepro Classified 250 AW User Reviews
Great Bag for Serious (And Strong) Photographers
“First of all, this bag is pretty darn big. I plan on using it as a day bag for trips, but only because I’m the type of guy that travels with several lenses. It holds my Canon 7D body with five lenses, including the huge 70-200 2.8 IS. I’m also able to squeeze in an extra body in there if I need it. The saving grace of the bag weight is the handle on top. It’s such a nice feature that more bags should adopt. It’s really nice to be able to grab the top of the bag by the handle when I need to shift positions for any reason (like getting in and out of seats or cars). It also helps for when I just want to pick the bag up off the floor and quickly move it somewhere. An A+ feature that more bags should have. “ – By Steve
This bag is just what I needed
“With the Classified I no longer have to do so. Both cameras with lenses fit into the bag with lenses attached. So my trusty 24-105 and 70-200 are always mounted on my cameras (7D/40D) and ready to go. I even have room to carry a couple of other lenses and a flash now. As always I find that Lowepro bags are very well made and very sturdy. I had occasion to use the rain cover last night and really appreciated having it.” – By Mark Coons
