Hello

would you say that the lowepro flipsides are a little safer because they one cannot access the camera from behind?

has anyone tried these and what do you thonk in terms of comfort?

I love the flip side, I have the 400AW.  It was great on several trips to the Galapagos.  You can take off the shoulder straps, leave the waist belt on, and flip it around until it is like a changing table in the front and you then have access to the lenses/gear.  It was quite comfortable and holds lots of gear.  It holds a lot, camera, 70-200 2.8 is, 4 other lenses, flash, and controller or gopro.  Also holds 2 extra batteries, all lens hoods, cards, intervalometer and assorted filters.  I got an attachable lens case for one more lens and water bottle holder.
