Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW Expert Reviews
Tcrpmg reviews the Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW and writes;
“Overall, I really liked this bag, but it is much larger than what I need. I don’t have enough equipment to fill it to it’s potential. For a real serious professional with tons of gear, this is the perfect bag. I would love to try a bag that is just a touch smaller to compare it to this one. I contacted LowePro about their bags because I have a LowePro Mini Trekker that I have had for 7 or 8 years that is still in great like new condition, despite me using and abusing it almost every day for the time that I have had it.”
Lowepro Pro Runner 450 AW User Reviews
“There is surrounding padded on the top, sides and bottom of the backpack’s housing. It is up to your imagination to what configuration best suits the weight distribution of your valuables. This will fit a full sized SLR with a 300 mm lens. Depending upon the lenses that you carry, this will accommodate for 4 to 6 lenses/external flash/handheld meter/other accessories. What attracted me, also, was the ability to carry a compact sized tripod when traveling. An all weather cover is included, to protect your valuable equipment from rain. A padded mesh backpad facilitates the comfort of carrying. Zipper closure is augmented with a snap buckle closure. “ – By Eagle Vision
A Magical Bag of Holding
“Yes it is designed for cameras, but don’t let that fool you into believing that is all it is for. The large central area uses Velcro dividers and you can modify them for whatever you need to carry and you can remove all of them when you just need a back pack for camping. There are several zippered pouches and Velcro pouches as well for your cell phone, keys, memory cards and whatever else you need to store… It has two rubber handles and padded shoulder and waist straps for carrying. Personally, I will probably use this more for carrying my D&D books and as an overnight bag, but that is probably the best feature of this backpack, you can use it for whatever you need to.” – By Michael D. Briggs
“It also has a pouch to slide up to a 17 inch laptop and a strap to attach a tripod. Although this is a nice option I personally do not take a laptop on a photo trip. So with the pack pretty much loaded I adjusted the straps and pulled it up to my back. After making some more adjustments with the straps I was very surprised at how comfortable it felt. It is well padded in the right places and as someone with arthritis in the lumbar spine it actually felt good, sort of like a back brace. The following weekend I took it out for a half day trip to the local zoo. I had no problem carrying it for nearly five hours.” – By Score Event
Spacious,and lots of padding
“Whether you are a professional photographer or a serious traveler who likes to take along a camera kit, this backpack more than meets the needs of the seasoned road warrior. When I ordered this, I didn’t think 19 inches was so much, but this can handle so much inside and out. It is well padded on the back and on the body straps. The lower part of the backpack has straps for support of the lower back and hips. There are two carrying handles–one on top and one on the side. There are bands to hold a tripod or monopod on the front and side.” – By WriterGirl
Pro Runner 450AW
“This pack is also designed to take on an airplane, but with all the equipment that you can store in this pack it might take you a little while to get through security. I can also see other uses for this backpack. If you are into research where you needed to pack out into the wilds and bring back samples of say soil or water, the padded compartments would protect your samples. This is a very well thought out and constructed pack and I believe you would not be disappointed in owning this.” – By Susan “minniesm”
The Eagle Creek of camera bags
“Design: Very thoughtfully laid out, convenient to use, with every detail accounted for. Especially like the waterproof cover built into the bottom of the bag that’s easily accessed in a sudden downpour, and the built-in sideways camera sleeve located near the back. Great organizer front pocket for travel documents and personal items. All the pockets and build-ins remind me of Eagle Creek luggage, which I absolutely love….” – By J. Kim
