Lowepro PhotoSport Pro 70L AW III review: a monstrous bag for multi-day hikes

The Lowepro PhotoSport Pro came highly recommended in our round-up of the best camera backpacks out there and that’s because it survived a wet Welsh weekend. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Weighing in at 3.2kg when empty, this isn’t the sort of lightweight trekking backpack that you might want to take on an expedition to the Arctic Circle. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
But the additional weight comes in the form of extra protection for camera equipment, your shoulders and hips. Plus, a separate, removable camera kit insert. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Available in S/M and M/L sizes, there’s a shoulder strap size to fit most body types, while the 70L bag is large enough to house everything you need. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Access to the GearUp PRO XL camera insert is via the front or the back and users can set this up whichever way they please. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The insert itself is a dedicated accessory with its own strap system, allowing multiple carrying configurations. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Although absolutely monstrous, this is a well thought-out camera bag that safely transports precious kit, as well as the camping essentials, in comfort. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
