Review – LowePro Outback 300AW

In the past, I have always used backpack style camera bags. I thought that I would mix it up a little and try out a few bags that might show the different varieties that LowePro has to offer. So, I have been trying out the LowePro Outback 300AW beltpack bag for the last few months.

First off, the Outback 300AW has a ton of space. One of my favorite features is the dual lens pouches on the outside of the bag. There is one on either side, freeing up space inside the bag for more camera gear. Once I put my two spare lenses inside the pouches, I had a ton of room for the camera and a few spare lenses inside the main compartment. The main compartment can be configured in a large number of ways to accommodate your camera body and lenses.

On the lid of the main compartment, there is a large velcro pocket and four small velcro memory card pockets. The zippers on the lid of the main compartment have teardrop shaped pulls with a rubber (plastic?) semi-circle that make them a breeze to pull.

The front of the bag has a large zippered pocket for storage. Inside this pocket are three wide pockets that would be good for storing small tablets, batteries and business cards. There is also a large mesh pocket that covers the width of the bag.

The back of the back has a strap that would hold the bag in place when placed on your luggage while traveling. The shoulder strap is held in place with heavy D-rings and has a very nicely padded pad for comfort. This bag is also equipped with a waist strap. The waist strap is very heavily padded and will allow you to spin the bag around your waist while using it for easy access. Underneath the padding for your back, there is a weather proof cover. This cover easily comes out and covers the bag should you get caught in a storm.

Overall, I really like this bag. As I stated earlier, I have previously always used backpacks. This was a nice change and opened up my eyes to other options. I highly recommend this bag.
