Lowepro CompuPrimus AW User Reviews
Nice, if a bit big
“TThe backpack is very sturdy, as Lowepro’s products tend to be, and you can really feel the quality. Despite being so big and heavy (it’s some 6 pounds or so when empty) it sits really comfortably on your back. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment bringing this on a daylong hike. The weight is really nicely distributed on your back and hips, it doesn’t seem nearly as heavy once you’ve got it on. The waistsupport and cheststrap only adds to this feeling, and sits perfectly (on me at least).” – By Bo Østergaard Jepsen
This bag is HUGE
“This bag is extremely comfortable. The top of the shoulder straps have kind of an awkward part that I can feel in my shoulders, although doesn’t seem like it makes that big of a difference in the overall comfort. Just something to get used to. The side access is actually pretty awesome. I wanted a bag that had this, and while there are unfortunate things about the design, this was definitely a deal maker. Plenty of space for misc. things in top compartment. A couple of books, maybe a lunch, makes it a good day pack (although the size disagrees with this statement).” – By Purple Haze
Great products, amazing customer service
“This is my favorite camera bag. None of the others I have come close to filling this same role. It’s elegantly designed. The amount of space in the top and bottom are just right for many situations. I even went around Europe with this as my only bag for weeks. Clothes and toothbrush in the top, gear in the bottom (I travel light, except for camera equipment!) The back-opening design is really nice in that one doesn’t have to take the bag all the way off to get at the pockets.” – By T. Savage
