That´s an awesome looking bag, a lot of space, practical and tidy at the same time. Might have to look at this a bit closer.. review away!

The mini trekker I have was starting to get a little strained with the ever growing kit that we all seem to gather as our hobby grows. While looking through the various websites and magazines I had set my mind on the Lowepro Nature trekker, but then I hear that Lowepro has brought out a new toy!

The shops had this Vertex 300 listed at around £200, but I managed to get it from a well known auction site for £163 including delivery to outside the UK.

When it got here, I thought I had gone a bit overboard in size, this thing is massive, but on closer inspection it appeared that I might be able to fill it, this becoming a personal challenge.

Very well built, chunky zips ( Rubber covered too ), cracking protection for your stuff, rain cover, shoulder straps cover, laptop bit (bit thin but slips in ok). sliplock bits on the side and front. Handy slim pockets on the very front is a good idea.

With kit in, it is heavy, but the well padded shoulder and waist belts hold it against the back well. For me it is more comfy than the mini trekker which sat too high.

A well thought out, and all together a top quality bag. If you need the size.

Questions ?

Does the tripod leg holder thing (bottom of the closed view, top of the thread) detach when not needed ?

Also what size laptop can you fit in ? Mine's a particularly chunky 17" dell e1705

28.7 cm x 39.4 x 4.1 cm

Any more photos from various views ?

Hello,

I'm seriously thinking about buyint the Vertex 200 AW. What worries me a bit though is the fact, that you put your laptop into that front department. if you attach a tripod, won't the movement damage your laptop?

I have the 200AW and its great. If your worried about damaging your laptop, you can attach your tripod to the left or right side of the bag instead. I recently added a MacBook Pro to mine and no damage with a tripod fitted to the front. A great bag with lots of room, yet small enough to be considered hand luggage on international flights :)

If your still interested, I could take a few pics so you can see what will fit inside a 200AW? The 300 size must be huge!

I've been looking at these but again wouldn't want (or manage!) something as big as the 300AW - any insight into the 200 would be gratefully received from here too. :)
