    […] Field Test Review Of The LowePro Inverse 100 AW Camera Bag … […]

  • […] In March, I added a Nikon D700 DLSR to my arsenal, and later in the year I invested in some more lighting gear, including a Nikon SB-900 Speedlight, Lastolite TriGrip diffuser, Bogen Magic Friction Arm, Justin Clamp, Photoflex LitePanel, and Lowepro Inverse 100 AW camera bag. (Read my field test review here.) […]

  • Alex Suarez says:

    Thanks for the in-depth, hands-on review. Useful information. I’ve yet to find the perfect bag.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    You’re welcome, Alex. And don’t fret, neither have I.

  • Tom Mcasey says:

    Hi good review, can I ask do you wear a backpack with this if so how do you find it,regards.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Tom, I’ve never worn a backpack with my Inverse 100AW. You wouldn’t be able to wear anything big with it, but you might be able to wear it with a very small pack that sits high on your back, maybe something to carry light clothing.

    Hi Dan, I’m looking for a bag for my X-T1 to use for ski touring and mountaineering — I’ve tried the new lowepro top loader pro and it works fairly well, but I have to stack the lenses underneath the body which makes changing lenses difficult. It wasn’t really designed for carrying a body with 2 extra lenses… I’m curious if you’ve tried this Inverse 100 AW with the X-T1? I can see carrying it in the front while wearing a pack — have you tried it that way? Thanks for any info you might have!

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Hi Rok. For skiing and mountaineering, I like the Lowepro Photo Sport 30 adventure photo pack. This allows me to carry my outdoor gear and my photo gear. If you already have a dedicated outdoor pack, I suppose you could use the Inverse 100 this way. The X-T1 is pretty light, so it would be easier to carry this way than if you were carrying DSLR gear. I’d take your big pack and camera gear to the camera shop and try out this configuration to see it if will be comfortable to carry like that.

    Great work, by the way! You have some awesome photography on your website!

  • Rok says:

    Hi Dan, thanks for the quick response and the kind words about my work!

    I’ve considered a dedicated photo pack, but I’ve really gotten used to having the camera at the ready all the time, i.e. in front of me. Most of the time when I shoot people on tours, I have no time to set up. As you say, bringing the gear to the camera shop and trying it out is really the only way to know 🙂 I expect the Inverse 100 will be too deep for the X-T1, which means that it will bounce around while skiing…

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
