The Lowepro Flipside 300 is the right balance of size, weight and value for me. It carries enough for any shorter outing that I undertake whether hiking or biking.

It seems like I let the fact that It doesn’t have a small external compartment bug me quite a bit… more than it probably should but overall its easily my favorite backpack that I have ever owned.

The Flipside Sport 15L AW from Lowepro is a talented camera bag built for the mountain man in you. It’s the best bag of its kind that I’ve used, and whether you’re taking it into the heart of the jungle, or just the urban kind, it’ll keep your gear safe, dry, and easy to get to.

This bag does everything it sets out to do really well; it’s comfortable for long periods of time with a lot of heavy gear in; it’s easy to get to all your gear and organise it, letting you get on with what you got it for in the first place – taking great photos.

This bag is great for travelling because of its ability to carry a lot of gear while maintaining a small form factor.
