Lowepro Rolling CompuTrekker Plus AW User Reviews
The Best of All Worlds
“I’ve been able to consolodate my camera equipment, laptop and some personal travel items all into this one bag. The case comes with many moveable dividers so you may need to shuffle them around for a while and leave some out to get the perfect fit. The wheels and handle on this model are of great quality and are a necessity because when loaded, this thing weighs a ton! While it can be worn as a backpack, I don’t really see it happening unless you’re a Titan…It’s HUGE!” – By Bob K
Great for airline travel
“This bag solves several problems when travelling by airline. You can fit most if not all your gear plus laptop and a few folders (for me it eliminates the need for a breifcase). The wheels make it simple to use when travelling. There are two limitations: First, once you get to your destination it will be combersome to use off the beaten path, so you may want to bring along a smaller bag, flat in your checked luggage to use in the field. Second, it weighs 10 lbs empty. Some airlines have weight restrictions for carry-on luggage, which this thing can easily exceed when full. Check your airline before you fly and be nice at the ticket counter!” – By Dave C
The bag of my dreams
“I wanted a bag that would hold my camera gear, particularly a long lens (300mm f/2.8), as well as my laptop. The main purpose of the bag would be for air travel. For car trips, it’s easy to toss two bags in the back. And for hikes, I probably wouldn’t bring my laptop. But with airlines cracking down on the number of bags per passenger, I wanted everything in one bag… The Lowepro CompuTrekker Plus AW Camera Backpack (Black) was squarer in shape, rather than tapered on top like the Kata, so it seemed more likely that my laptop would fit. I went over to the Lowepro site to check the specs (Amazon’s are often incomplete, or even incorrect), where I saw that they also made a version with wheels. Perfect!” – By Randym
All my gear fits
“My computer (Toshiba Satellite) fits fine and the Canon 40D with EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS attached, EF 70-200 2.8 L IS and EF-S 10-22 packed with room for more. I am a Lowepro fan and purchased this bag over others based on that. It is larger than I expected but easily holds my computer and camera gear. Lowepro and other reviews say it meets carry-on size and that is what I am looking for. I’ll get to test it in 2 weeks on a trip to Hawaii.” – By Tom Dowd
Fantastic workmanship & protection
“You get what you pay for with this bag – lots of secure storage for your equipment. It is quite a LARGE bag – it will easily handle your camera body, 1-2 large lenses, and another 2-3 smaller lenses plus flash and other assorted odds and ends, plus your medium to large size laptop, and cables and even a portable hard drive. As others have said though, this is not a bag you would necessarily want to carry on your back or take out on the trail once your get to where you are going. It also appears to be right on the edge of what would be acceptable for carry-on luggage – if you weren’t carrying anything else, you could probably handle it ok.” – By Rocky Mtn Tech Girl
“The computer and its accessories has to go in too also THE TRIPOD, That and your cameras and lenses and you will end up buying this bag. Its still not big enough to take ALL I wish to take, but its already too heavy and one has to be very careful when lifting it to carry it by the shoulder straps (good potential for back injury) but once its on your back, I have to say it feels comfortable and the weight is well distributed. “ – By Yousef Y. Mohsen
Good Feature Set, Lots of Space, Versatile
“…I think this is a great bag if you need rollers and backpack with a good bit of space. I wouldn’t recommend this for larger studio flash heads -depth of the bag- but it’s excellent for a wedding setup or speedlite-based real-estate photography. Shooters who need fast access to their camera will probably be more satisfied with a more-accessible main compartment (lots of latches on this one). You could get by with a smaller bag if you specialize…but if you’re looking for versatility of transport and function, this bag fits a lot of markets. Give it a try before you buy.” – By Sandy
