Lowepro Nova 170 AW Expert Reviews
Giantmike reviews the Lowepro Nova 170 AW and writes;
“This bag is just the right size for me. I first ordered a Nova 200 AW thinking I would need space for all the lenses and accessories I would buy. But upon receiving it, I found that it was overkill for my needs. The 170 AW is 3 steps down in size, which makes it much more portable. I would recommend this bag to anyone who doesn’t have more than 3 or 4 lenses/other large accessories.”
Lowepro Nova 170 AW User Reviews
Great little bad
“I wanted something that I could, in a very small package, fit my Canon Rebel XT, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens, and Canon VIXIA HF100 HD Camcorder. This bag does that perfectly. Everything fits very snug and it has a lot of compartments to cary around extra batteries, memory, cables, etc. I highly recommend this product for something that wants a bag with a good amount of space – but does not want to comprise having the ability to have a very portable bag.” – By HookEmHorns
Great Walk Around Bag
“This bag is a great size for carrying around all day with 2 or 3 lenses. The bag will mostly be used for comfortably fitting: 1a. Sony dSLR a200 with Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 attached (+ lens hood), 1b. Sony 70-300G (have not checked it with lens hood), I actually found I can carry this 2 lens kit the other way as well, 2a. Sony dSLR a200 with Sony 70-300G attached, 2b. Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 (+ lens hood) “ – By B. Levin
“Great bag, fits my Sony DSLR w/ attached lens and extra larger lens very well. Plenty of extra storage for other items as well. Love the color, much better than the usual boring black or grey bags!! Camera is well protected. Very happy with the bag, it’s a keeper!” – By LA
Works well with medium zoom and a prime
“Nice bag. It’s well constructed and the waterproof cover is a great feature for this north-westerner. This was obviously designed by a real photographer. I carry a small water bottle in the side pocket. That’s a nice extra. This is a good walk-around bag. It won’t carry a large kit but is perfect for one camera with selected lenses. The shoulder strap pad is very grippy and will stay on even when not carried across the body.” – By Michael McKee
Excellent Camera Bag
“I am very satisfied with the Nova 170. It’s perfect for my D40 with 18-200 mm lens attached, sb-400 flash, and 50 mm f1.4 lens. I can also include a camcorder if needed. I may upgrade to a sb-600 flash in the future which will fit nicely into the bag. There is a smaller compartment in front for extras such as filters, spare batteries, charger, etc. The waterproof cover worked as advertised. I walked around San Francisco one rainy day, and all my gear stayed completely dry. The strap is comfortable for extended periods of time, and the design allows me to access my gear quickly.” – By Cantona766
Good size, could use more pocket area
“Attached tot he 50D is the Canon 55-250 IS lens Under that I have a Peli Silica Gel. Also in the bag is a canon 18-55 IS lens. There is room for another lens on the other side of the camera (probably a 50mm 1.8 would fit nice). There is some room for more items, maybe a flash unit would fit in with everything. In the zipper pocket in the underside of the cover is a Cable release for the shutter. The pocket on the outside of the cover holds some lens cleaning pens and cloth. There is a pocket on the back that would be good for a small notepad and pen.” – By Mike Vande Ven Jr.
