Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II ?


Does anyone have this backpack? I would like a few opinions. I'd like to use it for one-day hikes. I had the 1st version of this backpack. A disadvantage was that the hip belt and shoulder straps were too soft to take up the weight properly. How are shoulder straps and hip belt to version 2 of this backpack? I would prefer them to be more rigid.

i do not own that particular backpack. I have a Lowepro Fastpack BP 250 AW II that I like quite a lot. I never take it on very long hikes and I never load it down, I just take the basics to do what I need and the backpack has always felt fine to me. I have been a long time fan of Lowepro. I hope someone can answer your question better than I.

Why not look at this in-depth review I wrote?

Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II Review - Introduction | Reviews

It's a very good bag, a few nice and innovative ideas, a few odd choices. Good comfort, not stellar. Better than average product certainly, however not my first choice. It depends on your needs and intended uses, of course. I cannot compare with version 1, I can say the straps are ok given the size of the bag. The access system is vastly different than on version 1 that's for sure.

In my growing experience, the best 1-day hiking camera backpacks are made by Mindshift Gear. Have a look at their rotation180 system, which is available on many bags. If you want a review to better understand the system, look here:
