Traveling with a Lowepro Whistler BP 350 AW Backpack

Lowepro Whistler 350 AW for Travel with Erick PHOTO


Lowepro Whistler BP 350 AW Backpack

The backpack that was born on the side of the mountain as Lowepro says in their propaganda. Reasons to purchase this backpack:

  1. Has an internal frame and configurable pads that will protect your gear (not all Lowepro backpacks have internal solid frames)
  2. Outside materials are extra durable, more than the standard ones.
  3. Can mount an axe, shovel, spikes and other things along the sides, front or even inside the extra pocket and not tear the materials.
  4. Like all AW series, it comes with an extra weather cover.
  5. Will fit in the overhead on a CRJ700/900 or ERJ145
  6. The opening is inside, you don’t have to take off the backpack completely to access your gear. This also keeps the backpack clean, free from mud, snow etc.
  7. Is modular, can add more Lowepro accessories to the sides like lens pouch, water bottle holder and other pouches.
  8. Fits perfectly once you adjust the straps to your height and width.
