Had ordered a flipside 400 aw ii and a fastpack 250 aw ii last year and went with the fastpack because only back access wasn't my fav and I was new to camera backpacks. The side access on this 3rd gen is amazing. Love the more rigid look to it too. Just waiting until my local camera store stocks them or Amazon does. Only request would be to make the hip belt removeable!

I love your FlipSide Trek 450.
The backpack is almost perfect and a real space saver.
But maybe you still plan to improve a little bit.
A few more loops or eyelets would be fine. E.g. also on the underside, so that you can still transport a little something.
The pockets on the hip belt are great, maybe something like that on the shoulder belt. I would love to have a fourth size with even more space and a larger daypack.

Looks very nice. I'm using one of the old Flipsides and this update fixes most of my ussues with it. Might have to grab one. :)

i just received flipside 400 aw iii and 500 aw ii to test out which one i like more. I like many design elements of aw iii, esp the side access - but think 500 aw iii would be perfect if you guys made it.

Got a TNF borealis right now but I'm looking for a durable camera backpack, I think Lowepro does a good job.

I despair with Lowepro designs, it's like the designers don't talk to each other or look at existing designs and roll out the good features across the range.
The Flipside Treks seem to have traded practicality for styling, with the result that they accommodate neither enough camera nor non-camera kit. I think there must be many of us who combine hiking with photography, and what we really need really need is a bag that can accommodate the amount of camera kit of the Flipside Trek 350 or 450 but with space for enough of the normal non-camera stuff you need for a day out (waterproofs, food etc.). Then we need it to have the pocket(s) on the inside of the main flap which is really useful for thin things like cleaning swabs, filters etc., like the Flipsides and m-Trekker have.
The Powder 500 is not the solution, it holds a greater weight of camera kit than I think most people would want to take out hiking, and not enough non-camera kit for a day on the mountains - especially in winter.

I like it but the only thing that's putting me off is the waist strap, I prefer one I can remove if I don't need it.

In the 400, can you fold the belt into that slit where it is attached to hide it when you don't want to use it? That belt tend to be cumbersome. That was my issue in my old Fastpack. I had to cut it off since I really don't get to use it.

That solid protection pieces might cause hard time when trying to squeeze the bag under airline seat 👎

The big selling point of this bag was that people couldn't access your bag when it was on your back. And the side access ruins that.

Not sure Lowepro should be in the camera bag business. You seem so out of touch. I do like the Jacket you're wearing, though.
