The Lowepro Fastpack 250 SLR camera bag is lightweight, super padded and very affordable. It provides excellent protection for both your Digital Camera and 15.4 inch Laptop. It also has ample space left over for other things like camera lenses, filters, spare batteries and so on. The easy access side zip compartments allow quick and flawless entry to all your belongings and gadgets. When your in a rush to grab your camera to capture the perfect moment you don't have to lay the bag on the floor to access your gear, just sling the bag over your chest and you can quickly undo the zip compartment and pull the camera out easily and quickly. The bag also has lumbar support straps to make it more comfortable when carrying large amounts of heavy equipment, as well as a mobile phone pouch located on the strap.
The main SLR compartment of the bag has adjustable dividers to make sure all your beloved belongings are of a snug fit and extremely well protected. It also has a flap that sits over the zip to the compartment with strong plastic buckles that ensures the zips cannot be opened without undoing the buckles, which in my opinion is a great safety feature if your out and about in a busy place. The Backpack has small pouches on the flap of the SLR compartment for things like memory cards and batteries, on the flap that covers the SLR compartment there is also another storage solution with elasticated netting for things like remotes or filters.
The laptop compartment is located to the back of the backpack, but accessed from the side, it has generous amount of padding to keep your equipment from bumps.
When you think you couldn't fit anymore into the bag, you discover the large storage space at the top of backpack, which you could use for several things, maybe a sandwich when your out for the day, or a camera manual. Also on the front of the bag there is a small zip compartment which is perfect for things like mobile phones or keys.
The quality of the backpack is great, it seams rugged and strong, it would be safe to assume you wouldn't need to replace the bag for a serious amount of time. The camera bag has another good feature that others don't, when you sit the bag on the ground it doesn't tumble over. It stands up on its own, which keeps the bag clean and easy to get items out of.
If you want a affordable bag, that is hard wearing, stylish and comfortable with serious amounts of padding, go for this one. On past usage i managed to fit 1 SLR camera, 3 large lenses, 2 flower hoods, GPS Unit, 3 Batteries, 5 filters, 1 camera remote, 2 battery chargers, 1 small digital camera, 2 SD cards and 1 camera manual. I still had room to fit a few other items.
I bought this bag over 5 months ago now, im so happy with it. I couldn't of wished for a better backpack. It fits on my back comfortably even at full capacity. If you have any questions you would like to know about this bag, i would be more than happy to answer them for you.
