Holiday Giveaway: Lowepro Rover Pro 35L AW

  1. The ability to hold a tent in a camera bag is a fantastic idea. Means I can take a break at any time or settle down in one area if I have a specific photographic project in mind where I have to stay in one place for an extended time. Will also protect me from the elements.

  2. To be able to go hiking and exploring in nature to get good images and know that you have atleast enough camping gear to stay the night if you desire to shoot the location your at, at dawn 🙂

  3. Having a front and side access – is pretty amazing. Quite often when it comes to photography getting the camera out as quickly as you can can mean amazing shot. So access can make it or break it when it comes to picture taking.
    To have a bag that its it all is at least as important. Since it is impossible to carry a camera bag and another bag with all the tent, sleep bag and so on. So this is perfect for me so that I can take off for a weekend of adventure and photography.

  4. With such an awesome bag from such an awsome company like Orms, what more do i want to take my photography outdoors and to another level. Such a lot of storage space for equipment your hands are free to take that shot you dreamed of.

  5. I like the fact that I can carry a heavy load comfortably and the hydration ready side pocket is just the perfect place to store some ice cold water for drinking.

  6. The whole package is great, this is definitely going on my wish list for when i do travel photography. im sure everyone knows the pain we go through as photographers traveling, its a real commitment to travel with equipment. The side quick access is very important and the water resistant! so needed.

  7. Well these Holidays my wife and I are hiking The Whale Trail. So for me, the whole package the the bag offers would be ideal (I’m busy looking for a backpack now). Especially the Two Liter Hydration Compartment for this summer, cause it’s going to be hot.

  8. Having the hydration pack within the backpack is a win win situation for me. as my current bag is an over the shoulder bag I tend to leave some equipment behind to lessen the load. The Lowepro Rover Pro 35L AW would really make my life easier

  9. Wow amazing bag , fingers crossed for winning!! Then ill be on m way to go do some camping and take some amazing pics for Orms January photo of the month comp!! And with all the storage space and the ability to take a small tent il be taking photos for days non stop in the woods

  10. Water-Resistant Exterior is a must, would hate to have any of my kit get wet, you can sometimes never predict the weather 100% and don’t want to miss doing something just cause of a little rain

  11. Best feature for me would be the tripod housing! This backpack is awesome! Getting a tripod up a mountain is such a mission, this would make it so much easier to get those fantastic panoramic shots that we all love 😉

  12. The photography and water resistance ability definitely send me to a wild wild advanture I am guarantee that my equipement are safe, rainy, sunny or snowy…the moment will be captured.

  13. We film all over Africa often in very remote areas so the fact that this bag has a 2liter hydration compartment, as well as having a water resistant exterior is awesome, and would really help us in our work for NGO’s.

  14. We film all over Africa often in very remote areas so the fact that this bag has a 2liter hydration compartment, as well as having a water resistant exterior is awesome, and would really help us in our work for NGO’s. -Michael Raimondo

  15. Instead of arse-creeping Orms for their great service…..I wish Mike and a ALL of his staff a merry xmas and a great new year.Oh yes…..and I like that the backpack can fit a tent etc and all photo gear

  16. the features that this backpack has will be enough of an adventure to me… but other than that, having a bag that can hold everything this can will come in handy in more than one instance.

  17. The combination of the bag’s capacity combined with the waterproof cover means 2 great things for anyone adventurous photographer – longer journeys with more gear, and no stopping the adventure, regardless of weather. Now that’s my kinda back pack!

  18. The waterproof exterior and all-weather cover – I shoot a lot in the outdoors, especially along coastal areas where my gear is always susceptible to getting damp or wet!

  19. The Hydration compartment has to be the most useful followed by the ability to carry a tent and sleeping bag. It would be a huge help in surviving the Zombie Apocolypse while take some great moody photos of a deserted JHB.
