Hello everybody, I received my Lowepro Classified 160 AW in the mail today, just in time for a trip up to Reno, Nevada. I thought I'd take some photos and post a quick review. Smaller images were used for quick browsing, each one is linked to a larger version.
I was looking for something that wouldn't stand out too much in a crowd, unlike my blue Flipside 200. The "Sepia" color also keeps it from looking too utilitarian.
The outer material is nylon like all of Lowepro's offerings, but this nylon is thicker and looks more durable than anything on my other Lowepro bags. It also has some leather accents; the stripe running down the front, the handle and all the zipper pulls.
Sell 'N Send is running a promotion for a free neckstrap with bag purchase. I already have a Lowepro Voyager that I use and like so this was a nice bonus.

Accessory pockets are under the front flap, they include an ID window and space for things like pens and paper. There's a key clasp, and at the end of that I found this bag's included card holder.

The dollar bill is for reference only, it did not come with the bag as compensation for a good review.

You can acutally jam alot into the front pockets... (Sigma EF-500 DG Super)

The back of the bag has two pockets. The lower pocket houses the AW cover, and the upper pocket is small and thin, probably for a wallet or other small and thin items.

As you can see, it dosn't fit the 50mm f/1.8 II well. I did this to give you an idea of how large it was.
