Reviewers like these things about the Lowepro Protactic 450 AW

  • Reviewers agree that the Lowepro Protactic pack gives the flexibility of a shoulder or cross-body-type bag in a roomier and more practical backpack form.
  • Reviewers also noted that it lays on the side facing away from the body to open with total access for complete loading of the bag.
  • Users thought that the bag has quite fantastic protection.
  • They also noted that its velcro tabs are sewn slightly more to the inside from the edges of the divider so it can be actually bend back more easily to allow for smoother positioning within the bag.
  • Other reviewers pointed out that its accessible top semi-hardshell flap under which can easily stash a body with a decent-sized lens attached is a neat addition.
  • Users noted that its strong zippers have loop attachments that can be pinched in a traditional sense, but that can as easily be pulled through with a single finger.
  • Reviewers indicated that it is an easy carry-on.
  • Users thought that the bag sits up wonderfully on the upper half of the back.
  • They have also mentioned that the bag’s attachment loops and overall rigidity offer a unique look that certainly does echo the urban style.
  • Testers have noted that its waterproof cover hides away on the bottom of the bag in a way that provides more cushion.

Reviewers don’t like these things

  • A user thought that the bag lacks the ability to store items other than photography gear.
  • A reviewer said that the pack becomes quite stiff when a laptop is added to the mix.

After my first Smoky Mountain trip with the Lowepro ProTactic 450, it was clear to see that it would be getting a 10 out of a 10. And it grew on me even more after that.
