Went to the local camera shop to check these out. The 350 isn't deep in enough for my 1 Series & gripped bodies. And the 450 is too HUGE. Very nice bags though, lots of room. Nice upgrade over the old Computrekkers.

Just got the 350 AW. It's pretty darn great and packed with features.

Well, I ordered the Pro Runner 450 AW, and it just arrived today!

It is HUGE compared to the Flipside 400. More thoughts to come once I load it up :)

do you still have this bag? Can you post some photos of it on your back? I'm interested in this and the 350 and I've been wondering how big they look while on someone's back.

I still have it. I will try to take a photo of it on my back sometime.

I picked up the 450 this week. So far, pretty pleased. I sold my Vertex and actually wanted something slightly smaller and lighter. It is lighter, not much, if any, smaller. The big advantage over the Vertex is the laptop pouch is on the back of the bag, not the front, making it balance better.

The interior is is deep, so it should hold a 1D series (it holds my gripped 50d) and would hold a 70-200 2.8 with hood in shooting position attached to a body with lots of space for other gear on the sides. This bag also has clips on the outside to help keep the inner closed when hiking, storing or whatever (nice safety feature).

The outer pouch is big and would make a great place for a change of clothes or raincoat. The built in pockets seem a little small to me. The inside zippered pockets are nice and roomy, giving plenty of room for other small gear, manuals and so on. As a nice addition, there is a small zippered pocket on the outside of the front of the bag which could be used for batteries or whatnot to keep you from having to dig around inside or open the bag looking for them.

Shoulder straps seems nice and well padded. The waist belt can be tucked away when not in use but it creates a bulge in the lower back area. I have not worn the bag with the straps tucked it.

As is common for Lowepro, it has the tripod holder, which is a nice feature. Monopod holder on the side and a couple loops for attaching Sliplock attachements. Also has the AW cover.

Again, thus far, I am pleased with the bag in almost all aspects. I do wish the outer zippered opening was laid out a little better with more built in slots, but so be it. Haven't traveled or hiked with it yet but I think it will be more than up to the challenge. I believe I'm going to like it.

Have you guys ever taken it into cabin of an aircraft? Does it fit in overhead bin and/or under the front seat of an airplane? Please share your experiences.

Yes, I've stowed it in the overhead compartment. I don't think it would fit under the seat, but I'm not sure.

I had the 450 for a while Until I picked up my 500. The bag is very big and very customizable. It is also a little heavy as you should expect.

OP, it should comfortably hold all your gear.

It will fit under an isle seat on an aircraft, although if you are tall, I would put it in the overhead bin.

Do you think this backpack will be able to carry a 400 f2.8 L IS, a 70-200 f2.8 L IS II, a 24-70 f2.8 L and a 16-35 f2.8 L II and a pair of DSLR's? Maybe I should be asking If I could carry that lot too!
