Lowepro Primus Minimus AW Expert Reviews
Matthewbaltrusitis reviews the Lowepro Primus Minimus AW and writes;
“If you travel light and fast and need a bag that can keep-up and do the same, the Lowepro Primus AW might be a pack that you are looking for. It is a backpack that has room for clothing and camera equipment that does not necessarily scream “camera bag” to any would-be thieves….”
Lowepro Primus Minimus AW User Reviews
“This backpack does all of this perfectly! I was initially concerned about the side access pocket and the outer compartment that I use to hold my netbook but they both work great. The quick access door takes a little practice if you want to remove your camera without slinging the bag around but once you get used to it it’s easy to do. The outer compartment is perfect if you have a netbook in a protective sleeve that you want to carry through the airport, etc.” – By Robert C
“When I was looking for a camera bag I simply wanted something that I could hike around with and take on a plane. Not only does it work well in both of these situations I am also confident in traveling in crowded places with it since it is only accessible from the side facing your back. Its all weather cover has proven to come in handy while living in the rainy northwest as well. Something else that’s really neat about this backpack is that it can be converted into a normal spacious backpack by removing all the partitions inside. As a side note the partitions feel really strong with a plastic backing inside. Another plus is the easy side access so you can grab your camera quickly.” – By J. Ching
