Lowepro Backpack 400 Flipside AW111 – Field Tested
“The 400 Flipside AW111 was so lightweight and comfortable that at times I forgot I was carrying it”
Should you be spending a day in the field, this is the ideal backpack for all your needs. I found the 400 Flipside AW111 was so lightweight and comfortable that at times I forgot I was carrying it. And yet it had the capacity to hold my necessary camera equipment, food and drink for a days shoot.
“This really is a camera bag for all seasons”
Having experienced rain on the day of the field test, the 400 Flipside AW111 remained dry throughout due to the fabric and coatings applied to the bag. This really is a bag for all seasons!
By the end of the field-test, I had no adverse effects from carrying the backpack around all day.
This super product is Lowepro’s most popular camera backpack and has been redesigned for the outdoors! The Flipside 400 AW III features robust fabrics and front PU coating offers extreme durability and protection from the elements, moisture and abrasion.
Weighing in at under 2kgs, this backpack has enough space for the following equipment:-
• Fits Pro DSLR or Pro Mirrorless body with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached
• 4-5 extra lenses or speedlights
• Compact Tripod
• Up to 15” laptop
• Accessories and personal items
Other features include:-
• Full backside access with front moulded EVA bumpers
• Side access for quick lens changes
• Cradle Fit pocket suspends and protects 15” laptop

The upgraded backside-access offers fast, easy entry to the camera compartment while keeping gear safe and secure on rough terrain. Simply take it off, lay it down and unzip the back panel for full access to gear.
A new side-access provides a second entry point for quick lens changes.
The enhanced 10mm YKK zippers give a smoother path, while front moulded EVA bumpers deliver increased security for valuable equipment when the bag is set down.
An all Weather AW Cover protects gear from rain, snow, dust and sand.

To sum up my review of the Lowepro Backpack 400 Flipside AW111. A very well designed and beautifully manufactured camera bag. Lightweight, strong, rugged and weatherproof it certainly met all my requirements. I was not disappointed in any way.
This backpack is also competitively priced against other similar products. On the Lowepro website this product retails for just £139 GBP and at that price is well worth the purchase.
