Camera gear is kind of a strange. It is super expensive and delicate but the only way to truly use it is to bring it with you to some not so delicate places. That is why a good camera bag is important. The Lowepro Adventura 170 does a great job of looking great, packing tons of camera equipment and protecting everything.


Lowepro Adventura 170The outside of the Lowepro Adventura 170 is made of a seemingly waterproof and very tough material. This material is thick and stiff, while still being light. It feels as though it is strong enough to protect your gear from a short fall. The weight of this bag is very reasonable and I would not be concerned about that at all. Additionally, the rain flap is a nice touch that adds another layer of protection from rain or snow. The rain flap clips on the front of the bag and when unclipped can be pulled back to reveal the two main pockets.

The Lowepro Adventura 170 features two pockets and two side elastic pouches. The elastic pouches are on the sides of the bag and can hold objects of various size. They are similar to the pouches on the sides of a backpack that are perfect for water bottles or other weird shaped objects. I am really glad they included these pouches because it gives you a place to store food, water, or other personal object that is separate from your camera equipment. This means you don’t have to worry about your water bottle sweating on to your camera equipment.

Lowe Adventura 170 Front PocketThe front pocket unzips to unveil a dedicated memory card pocket and small pouch for loose equipment. The front pocket is for all of your small accessories or maybe a wallet. I found this  small pouch perfect for small cables, lens caps, or even lens filters. The dedicated memory pocket is a very nice touch. I love that I have a pocket made to keep my memory cards safe and in one place. The size of the memory card pocket is perfect and could easily fit at least three SD cards with no issue. The front pocket is also a lot larger than it seems and you can really squeeze a lot into it.

Lowe Adventura 170 PocketThe main camera pocket is AWESOME. The first thing you notice is the soft orange material that lines the inside of the compartment. This material is super soft and delicate enough not to scratch or damage your camera equipment in anyway. The pocket is very large and utilizes two removable dividers. These dividers are attached to the pocket with Velcro, so they can be removed or moved within the compartment to allow you to customize this pocket for your needs. This means you can fit a wide range of camera or camcorders of various sizes.
