In this post one of our Lowepro CompuRover AW which he gives a rating of 9 stars out of 10!
I have two red sore bits where my hips should be… Not super bad, but red and a touch on the “ouch” side. That’s where the waist strap of my new Lowepro CompuRover AW Camera Bag has been sitting all day… I have had this before with my hiking pack when I didn’t do it up correctly. So, I don’t blame the bag for this, the waist strap is great – very padded, I blame me… I started my day at about 9am, right after breakfast and walked around Palermo until about 6pm so in fairness – the bag did exceptionally well.
The waist strap is very sturdy, it has more padding than a Sumo wrestler and is very hardy – the click clack snap buckle is well made and the whole unit is well stitched. Oh, and did I mention that it’s detachable? Brilliant huh…
The shoulder straps are good and solid, on par with the indestructibility of the Crumpler reviewed earlier, with a great array of attachment locations for extra add-on bits and pieces sold separately by Lowepro, and a cross chest harness and two D clips, the straps were very comfortable even after walking with the full bag on all day with a half hour stop for lunch [when M “needs to shop” she “needs to shop”]
On the whole, the CompuRover is a top bag. It has been made with great quality materials and the workmanship is very good, with only one minor flaw that I can be bothered to mention, but more on that later… (more…)
