Re: New Lowepro bag - Photo Sport Pro 30L AW ?

What's not entirely clear is what the camera carrying capacity of this bag is.  It appears sized to carry a pro body with battery grip and something like a 70-200 f2.8 attached in a module that's removable like in the RoverPro and Hatchback series, but that module appears to open up only on the end and it doesn't look wide enough to store another lens alongside the body like you can in the 200AW and 100AW.  Perhaps if you are carrying a smaller or slower lens you can stack them in the module and go fishing when you want to switch lenses.  In any case this appears to be more of a swing-to-front camera holster with perhaps 20+L of personal storage, a good size for alpine sports photogs or wilderness daytrippers with a small photo kit.

Nice that it has a trampoline style suspension and a beefier waistbelt.  I'm not sure how well this will fare against some of its competitors - it's much deeper to hold that gripped pro body and still quite short, whereas the best adventure packs try to keep things as shallow as possible and go taller.

We'll find out soon enough.
