Lowepro DryZone 200 Expert Reviews

Digitaldingus reviews the Lowepro DryZone 200 and writes;
“If you need something waterproof, get the DZ 200. If you need the ultimate protection against a really vicious environment…get the DZ 200. I should mention the DZ 200 is also great for non-aquatic adventures. If you ever take any trips out to the desert or places where winds can stir up some dust, I would consider this pack as well. Another place to consider using the DZ 200 with, is for high-altitude hiking. Remember moisture can easily accumulate on your equipment, if it’s not sealed from the environment. And camping overnight will make this situation worse. The DZ 200, since it is waterproof, can protect your equipment from many other problematic encounters besides water.”

User Opinions

Lowepro DryZone 200 User Reviews

Wet, wild…and yellow
“This is a fantastic idea! I carry digital camera gear, hard drives and LOTS of rechargeable batteries onto boats to take photographs underwater. It has all become much easier with a waterproof backpack… and it seems to be accepted as hand luggage by airlines. This big version carries a lot, two cameras, two flashguns and two lenses and an aluminium camera housing. A wildlife photographer could get almost anything into the pack, and sling a tripod on the outside, with lunch in the pocket.” – By DiveDoc

“It’s big and bulky, and it’s not always convenient (photo backpacks never really are), but it holds aqnd protects an enormous amount of stuff and, when properly adjusted, it rides quite comfortably. I enjoy shooting waterfalls, and moving water in general, so there’s a fair amount of rockhopping involved…over, through, and sometimes in streams, rivers, ponds, and surf. I’ve adjusted the pack to fit very snugly, and I’ve never felt out of balance or uncomfortable with as much as 35 lb. of gear on me in those situations, so I’m able to get into some reasonably remote locations and really work on a scene with all my tools.” – By David S.

Swim with your photo gear with confidence
“Overall, this is another excellent bag by Lowepro. The dry-zuit zip really works superbly. Some of the design features – particularly the height adjustable harness and waist/chest straps – are superior to those on more conventional models, such as the Computrekker AW Plus. I would have no hesitation recommending this bag to anyone planning to take lots of gear into extreme climates, be it snow, water or sand. I have to admit, however, that I will probably continue use my other Computrekker, Rover and Slingshot bags on a day-to-day basis as they are simply easier to get gear in and out of the bag.” – By N.

Love it and you CAN fly with it
“I have owned this for a while and have used it mostly for storage of my gear while traveling afoot or in a car. I recently however had the chance to take it in the air. I know there has been some question as to whether or not they are acceptable carry-on luggage, so maybe I will be able to provide some personal insight. The contents of the bag were the following: 1. Canon EOS 5D MK II with Battery Grip attached and Canon 100-400mmL IS USM lens and hood installed on camera, 2. Canon 70-300mm IS USM lens with hood, 3. Canon 28-135mm IS USM lens with hood, 4. Canon Speedlite 580EX flash, and assorted accessories to include extra batteries, remote, etc. I had no problems checking it through TSA security screening.” – By Z. Curtiss
