A great compact camera bag
May 02, 2011
I was looking for a small camera bag that would hold my Nikon D80 with the "old" AF-S Nikkor 18-200. Usually I either have only this camera/lens combination or my full equipment.
The Lowepro Toploader Zoom 45 AW is just big enough for this camera/lens combination, including camera strap and quick-release plate, and still has a bit of space for, say, memory cards. It is possible to fit the bag strap into the main compartment as well, but that's a bit of a battle. The bag also has a front compartment that is big enough for, say, the bag strap, or at least two battery packs and several memory cards. In addition to the included strap it also has a handle and a belt loop.
The next bigger size would have more extra space but is also a lot bulkier and, given my either/or approach, would not be as useful for me.
Being a Lowepro bag it is very well padded. It also comes with Lowepro's trademark built-in AW rain cover. Overall it's a great bag that is very handy to lug around most camera/lens combinations. Build quality seems to be excellent as usual with Lowepro, except that one of the zippers on my bag is a bit finicky.
It's a great bag that does exactly what I wanted it to do. In blue it also looks great. Highly recommended!
