Lowepro CompuTrekker Plus AW User Reviews

“If you fly a lot, this is so big that it will be your only allowable carryon. And it BARELY fits. Having said that, it holds two bodies, two flashes and four lenses, including a 80-200mm VR nikon with room to spare. it is well organized. my laptop is a macbook, but I’m pretty sure this would hold a 17″ mac pro. It has serious weight lugging ability, with shoulder and chest straps. it has several places to tie stuff on the outside, if you could lift the thing after you had done that.” – By Rich M

Easy Traveler
“I travel to many remote and beautiful places in my work and this backpack allows me to take my Nikon as well as my laptop along with me. The compartments of the camera section are easily arranged. My laptop is kept safe in its compartment and the front pocket leaves plenty of room for files and presentation materials. By rearranging the dividers in the camera compartment I have room for a digital projector, my Nikon and two lenses as well as a speed light and the charger for my laptop.” – By Skiteach

A great bag that could be even better
“This is my first larger capacity camera bag I have purchased rather than making one out of a typical backpack and some DIY adjustments. I really like the internal options of this bag and can get quite a bit of gear in a variety of layouts. My only beef is a lack of external pockets along the sides. I can understand the front being a bit bare due to the ability to mount your tripod/monopod, but the sides would be nice for storing additional batteries & such. Also, the computer compartment is definitely large enough for my MacBook Pro 17″, though it is pretty snug on it front to back.” – By Jeremy Hall

Great bag for just about everything
“I was looking for a bag that would hold it all and this bag has lived up to it. I have had it for a few months and it has held up very well. The cost was lower than that of other equal bags and its simple color and design help keep people from noticing the bag. It has a pocket for every thing in the front section from pen folders, business card holder, key fob, etc. I am 6’5″ 250LBS so the weight of the bag is not an issue, although when I took it out of the box I was like wow this is big. If you are a small person with a weak back get something with wheels. “ – By Kenneth

Finallly! I have enough room for my stuff
“After doing a LOT of research, I settled on this bag. It has room for everything I have plus room for more. I plan on adding at least one more flash and one more camera body in the next year and the Computrekker will accomodate them without any worries. The shoulder straps are comfortable and very adjustable. I’m very impressed with the construction too. The weather cover is also a nice touch. It does a great job of keeping the bag protected in bad weather. It was a bit challenging to find at first, but it tucks out of the way and is easy to deploy quickly when needed.” – By S. Jacobs

Storage room in a backpack
“This is a great bag for carrying a lot of gear including your laptop on the go. Plenty of room, build quality excellent. The only grip I have about the bag is $$$ and once its loaded with all your equipment and a laptop it can be very heavy but that’s the trade off you get when carrying everything. I have 2 SLR’s, 3 lenses and accessories; all fit with no problem with room to spare. I would recommend this to anyone who wants something that is going to last them for a long time. This is my second back from Lowepro.” – By music freak

“Great product. Used to lug a 30 lbs camera bag on my shoulder through airports and location shoots.
I now carry my camera equipment on my back like I am going hiking along with my laptop and it find it very comfortable. 2 Canon pro bodies, 2 flashes, 3 lenses, 2 pocket wizards, 1 computer, cf cards ect. Great value.”

Great bag
“This is a great bag, well made. It has room for all of my gear, and is comfortable to wear. It is a large bag, but it fits me (6’1″, 210 lbs). I carry a laptop, Nikon D60 with vertical grip, 4 lenses (18-55mm, 55-200mm, 50mm, 105mm), 3 speedlights (sb900, 2 sb-r200), su-800, tripod, and various assorted accessories, brackets and cables. There’s even some room to spare!” – By D. Michael

After two months
“The depth of the bag is really nice. Vertically mounted lenses can be doubled. Without any trouble I can pack anything I need for a day’s shooting in the field. The trick is more to strip it down to a manageble weight, than it is to get what I need into it. I wish it still had the divided interior pockets. I do like the built in memory card slots; but when I shoot film it’s a little harder to keep separate stocks separate. The shoulder straps are good, and the adjustable tension is effective. This bag has a much better hip belt than the 15″ bag. I’d prefer to have cordura on the sides, I am afrid of damaging the “Hypalon”. As with the other bags the tripod system is only semi-useful.” – By Terry Karney
