Lowepro Versapack 200 AW Expert Reviews
DCR reviews the Lowepro Versapack 200 AW and writes;
“the Versapack 200 AW is definitely at the top of the game. Lowepro set out to make versatility a defining factor, and I think it’s safe to say they succeeded… Pros: Spacious, Durable yet lightweight, Extremely versatile. Cons: Small clips harder to open in a hurry, Tripod mount pocket tough to open”
Ephotozine reviews the Lowepro Versapack 200 AW and writes;
“This bag is ideal for those looking for a bag with a decent amount of space for a a small selection of camera gear and lenses for day trips out, or other circumstances that you may need space for other non-photographic items, such as sandwiches. The tripod mounting system is a nice idea, but it is only really suitable for smaller, lightweight tripods and the all weather cover is a great addition, especially if you get caught in a deluge.”
MyMac reviews the Lowepro Versapack 200 AW and writes;
“The Versapack 200 AW by Lowepro is, in MyMac’s opinion, a sound investment in equipment that not only totes your stuff, but protects it very well, and allows convenient access your gear in mid-stride. A lot of thought has gone into the design of the Versapack, resulting in a serious light backpack for the traveling photographer.”
