Lowepro Pro Runner 300 AW Expert Reviews
Thedigitalstory reviews the Lowepro Pro Runner 300 AW and writes;
“The backpack has a sturdy handle on top making it easy to pick up or grab out of a storage compartment. The harness system is very comfortable, capable of day-long treks, but it isn’t bulky. I think this is a big deal, especially when working in the city. For example, I like having the belly band when I’m hiking, but it often gets in the way for street work. With the Pro Runner 300 AW, I can stash the belly band in the bottom AW compartment so it isn’t visible at all. If I need it for a longer haul, it’s easy to pull out and use. “
Lowepro Pro Runner 300 AW User Reviews
“I’m not big on the whole camera kit, but this bag has a space for everything. It is well padded and comfortable on the back. The compartments are adjustable to fit camera, lenses, data cards, everything. About the only problem is that, if you are hiking, you’ll need another pack for your non-camera gear. The bag is also very water resistant. It should do quite well even in a downpour, but not submerged.” – By John Keitz
“I like that it has a padded mesh backpad that helps with airflow for sweat. The inside has your standard adjustable padded dividers that allow you to customize to your equipment. The sides seemed padded enough, but where the back of the backpack zips closed around the camera section, I felt the thickness left something wanting for anything that may strike the rear of the pack or if dropped on the backside of the pack… This should meet most people’s needs, especially when traveling and not wanting to let their investment in equipment out of their sight. I looked at a few other models made by Lowepro and they all have pretty good ratings. Thus I don’t think anyone can really go wrong here.” – By Paladin08
Holds it all
“On the inside there are compartments for your gear that are made of padded sections with velcro flaps. You can pull these out and configure them as you like. This works out very well. I was able to put my DSLR and lenses along with my HD video camera and accessories in spaces that were custom fit by moving things around. The back flap has storage for memory cards, manuals, and whatever else you may want to store as well. The bags structure provides padding for normal use but I would not use the bag for extremely rough use or put anything heavy on top of it as it is not rigid enough to provide that type of protection. Overall I would say this looks to be a nice bag that will safely store your gear for everyday general use. “ – By Schwartz
Much More Than A Camera Case
“At the bottom of the pack is a well thought out two-sided pouch containing on one side a pullout support for an external tripod and on the other – check this out – an all-weather cover you pull out and over the entire pack to shield it from the elements (I assume this means the main pack fabric is durable but not water-resistant). It’s like having a built-in umbrella, very cool. The side of the pack that contacts your back has terrific lumbar support, fully adjustable and padded arm loops, and an adjustable waist belt. Fasteners are all those extra-durable snap and squeeze connector things. Empty, the pack itself feels extremely light for its size.” – By frankp93
For the serious photography fan
“I didn’t realize just how substantial this pack would be when I ordered it. It’s a full-sized backpack made just to house your camera and accessories. The interior is separated into sections with padded divers so that you can keep all your goodies in there without anything banging together. A little more extensive than I need for my casual photography, but it’s a perfect gift for my boyfriend’s Dad who is a serious amateur photographer!” – By Digigirl
“This backpack delivers a compact solution for photographers who carry their gear around with them. This bag can fit a camera, a tripod and other accessories, plus a few personal items, like an MP3 player and cell phone. The interior is full padded and it has an all weather exterior which is great for Florida rains! Aside from the stuff I already metioned the Pro Runner 300 AW has side compression straps with quick-release buckles; a place to hide your tripod; rainflap lids; mesh side pockets; memory card pockets on inside lid; padded mesh backpad; adjustable and padded shoulder straps; webbing grab handle. This bag can hold your SLR with an attached lens up to 200 mm plus 3-4 lenses, a flash,tripod or monopod and several personal items.” – By Maggie
