Lowepro Flipside Sport 20L AW
A compact, low-profile shape allows the wearer to move with ease when running or hiking on an alpine trail or exploring challenging terrain. Perforated and breathable padding with air channels is strategically placed at the back panel and shoulder straps to provide comfort and moisture wicking at the back and shoulders during aerobic activities.
The unique, body-side access design provides an easy way to get to gear without having to remove the pack. To access: unclip the sternum strap buckle; remove one shoulder strap; rotate to front; unzip and access gear, using the pack as a convenient and stable workstation.
To create more flexibility for outdoor photographers and adventurers, the design team constructed a removable camera compartment. It includes the classic Lowepro adjustable and padded divider system, but with an inventive twist: the entire compartment may be removed, securely cinched with a storm-flap closure, and put in a safe place while the pack is converted to a fully functional daypack.
Built-in details add comfort and convenience for a day of outdoor activities. The packs feature a hydration-ready side pocket with space for a 1.5 liter reservoir (not included) and easy-to-reach port for a sip tube. An ultra-secure tripod attachment system at the side of the pack helps expand the carrying capacity—it accommodates a range of compact tripods or monopods, and helps compress the overall size of the pack.
Additional, outdoor-friendly features include: lashes for trekking poles/ice axe; a zippered pocket inside the back panel; multiple adjustment points for a custom fit at shoulders, sternum and waist; Lowepro’s patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to protect gear from the elements; and lightweight, resilient and high-performance 210D triple-ripstop nylon with PU coating for improved durability.
Additional storage and tech-friendly features include: a zippered front compartment with separate pockets for accessories, personal items and a tablet.
The Flipside Sport 20L AW fits a Pro DSLR with grip, with attached 300mm f/2.8 lens; extra Pro DSLR body with grip; 2 extra lenses and a flash; battery charger, filters and other accessories; tablet;tripod or monopod; 1.5 liter hydration reservoir; trekking poles, ice axe or other personal gear.
