    Having just joined today i wanted to ask opinions on the lowepro range.
    At the moment i have a Nikon D3000 with 18mm-55mm lens and a 55mm-200mm one.
    I have been looking at the lowepro flipside 300 or the 400aw as once i learn a bit more and have more money i am hoping to get a flashgun as well as some filters and a few other items.
    I like the design and have read a few reviews which say they are good.
    I was wanting a good quality bag that is going to last,secure for carrying around and is large enough at the moment for what i have but will enable me to expand later.

    I have seen that Amazon here in the UK have the flipside at about £63 used and about £70 new.

    Flipside rocks if that's the style you want, I personally prefer shoulder bags and love the Rezo 170 AW and Nova 180 AW (get larger if you need the room).

    The Flipside 300 holds a LOT of stuff.

    The perfect bag for me, I found was the Lowepro Micro Trekker 100. It fits my D300 and 80-200 f/2.8(without grip) 2 flashes, 50mm 1.8, and a D50, a memory card wallet, and then the grip and spare batteries in the outside compartment. All of that is a snug fit in a bag that is less than 1' by 1'. A bit of thought is required to pack it, but its fairly easy to get at in a hurry.

    My advice is to go to a nearby camera store and look yourself. I have a lowepro 200 among my collection. I use it when I travel, because the airlines consider it my "personal item" and then I carry everything else I need in a standard carryon (I NEVER check any bags if I can avoid it). The 200, on the other hand, is quite small for general work.

    I've not had good luck with Lowepro gear, nor their customer service. Note: I am only 1 dissatisifed customer and 1, does not necessarily make a trend.

    I can recommend Case Logic, Tenba, Pelican, and Think Tank though.

    I wanted to say a thank you to everyone who posted information about this.
    After a great deal of thought and deliberation regarding costs,facilities and type of use i have ordered a lowepro flipside 300 in black from a local family run camera shop for £51.98 and £9 next day courier delivery which i think is a pretty good deal.

    Hopefully it will arrive within the next couple of days as i would like to go out and about this coming weekend to take a few pictures.
