Lowepro Toploader Zoom 55 AW User Reviews
Sturdy and Solid Bag
“This bag will come in handy for all my camera needs. The bag is a nice size to fit most of my camera equpment and it can be converted to a holster-type carrier. There are lots of pockets to store things which are very useful. It seems well-insulated so the weather won’t affect my photography equipment. I think this is a very adequate bag that will also be helpful for my summer travels. It will be nice to be able to keep all my camera equipment in one handy bag and not have to worry about losing things.” – By Steven James
“Bag is top quality for the price. Waterproof cover is great for unexpected weather and stows when not in use. My 40D with Tamron 70-200 2.8 (10.75″) fits snugly with the top flap zipped and has room for the strap around the camera body. This bag is the perfect size when you want to keep it light while carrying a semi-large telephoto lens. External front pocket is generous, top flap has a pocket for small items and the sides have straps for attaching cases or whatever.” – By Sven
Near Perfect Solution for Canon DSLR and Longish Zoom Lense
“What makes this bag close to perfect is the size and weight. It rides comfortably on the hip. Also, the opening is wide and accessible making it easy to slide your camera in and out. I also really like the built in rain cover. I don’t know that I would trust it in a downpour, but I really like the idea of a little extra protection in an unexpected rain. I’ve taken it on two trial outings now and it is working like a champ.” – By Bryan Newman
Lowepro 55 AW is perfect for DSLR with attached large zoom lens (e.g. 80-200mm f/2.8, 80-400mm f/4.5, 100-400mm f/4.5)
“Lowepro Toploader Zoom 55 AW main appeal is to carry DSLR with attached larger (larger than 70-300mm) zoom lens such as 80-200mm f/2.8, 80-400mm f/4.5, or 100-400mm f/4.5. I fitted DSLR with 80-20mm f/2.8 attached and it fits nicely (but there isn’t any room left with this setup, except the zippered compartment space still available to store some accessories)..” – By Sidarta Tanu
Excellent bag for my 5D MKII
“This is a really excellent bag if you don’t want to bring a larger pack with you on a photography trip. This quite comfortably fits my 5D MKII + 24-105 lens + hood. I love the pull-out rain-proof cover. Even the little holder for SD cards has a cover over the zipper so it doesn’t scratch your camera! Very thoughtful! “ – By I. R. Smart.
A high quality bag for your large camera storage needs
“This is a very large camera bag, perfectly suited for SLRs and digital SLRs with long telephoto lenses. The internal compartment has an additional Velcroed platform that can be installed to hold a smaller camera with a zoom lens stored below it. As with all Lowepro camera bags, the exterior material is a high quality synthetic material..” – By Charlie
Roomy, Protective & Functional Holster-Style Camera Bag
“There are two hard nylon / plastic D-rings at the top sides of the bag, with a typical, adjustable 1-1/2″ shoulder strap attached via hard nylon / plastic snap links. The strap has no padding, although it does have a 6″ long non-skid section sewn in midway. Having suffered long periods of time w/ similar straps around my neck or shoulder, I will definitely replace this relatively cheap strap with something more comfortable. There is also a belt loop on the rear of the bag, as well as two D-rings at the bottom sides & two strap loops, one 1-3/4″ wide, the other 3/4″ wide, on each side for attaching accessory cases, etc. “ – By Thomas Tracy
Bag A Riffic
“Inside is a separator that firmly velcros to each side to cut the volume in half. There are a couple of things you can use that for. I’m sure the intent is to remove it so a camera with a large lens can be fitted into the bag but it also means with a smaller camera and lens there’s some extra storage room under there you can use for supplies or extra lenses. In the top of the compartment flap is a little section you can store memory cards in as well. It has an outer pocket great for cables and other supplies. “ – By D Strick
