Lowepro Flipside Sport AW 20L review

May 10, 2016

I found it hard to buy the perfect camera bag.  After months of searching, I decided there is not going to be a ‘perfect’ kit bag suited to my needs.  And this is what you need to decide.  The kit bag will need to tick most of your wants in a bag.  I finally stumbled on one and purchased the Lowepro Flipside Sport AW 20L.  This bag was built with the adventurer in mind.  In my eyes, it is a great bag for day trips.  The stylish design and practicality add to the bag’s selling features.  Lowepro have a reputation of building quality camera bags so I knew I could trust their name.  One of my first bags was a Lowepro shoulder bag.  This was enough room for my DSLR and one lens.

Size: 20L but does come in 15L and 10L

Price: 20L – $220, 15L – $185, 10L - $155.  If you do a bit of research on Ebay or Amazon, you will be able to pick one up for about half the price.

 

Pro’s

  • It's light weight.  When all your equipment weighs a bit, its goo to have a light and durable bag.

  • Straps distribute the weight evenly.  The dispersed weight makes the bag feel lighter when carrying a bag full of equipment.

  • Side pocket for camelback water bladder.  A great little addition for those long hikes.  I have placed a 2 Litre water bag which fits in nicely.

  • Raincoat

 

Con’s

  • There are no small pockets for SD cards, filters, extra batteries.  Don’t get me wrong, there are pockets and a couple with zips, but these are quite large and you waste a bit of time searching through them.

  • No quick zip at the top of the bag.  This would have been a nice addition to allow quick access from the top.  I am not sure if this was for anti-theft or not.

 

Final Thoughts

Overall I am pleased with my purchase.  The 20L may be a bit big for what I am after at the moment, but I am sure I will be able to fill it when I fork out more money for a new lens.

 

 Itchy Feet Escapades rates the 20L Lowepro Flipside sport 8 out of 10 feet.
