Gear: Lowepro's Nova Sport is a camera bag and a day pack

Lowepro’s well-designed camera bags have evolved into multi-tasking adventure bags that carry much more than just a camera and its accessories.

The new Nova Sport 35L AW holds a mother lode of gear. The weather-resistant shoulder bag measures about 16-by-11-by-12 inches, but weighs less than 3 pounds.

Inside, modular, adjustable foam-padded compartments organize up to two full-size cameras with attached zoom lenses, two to four additional lenses, flash units, a tablet or laptop (up to 13-inch diameter), a jacket and plenty more.

Storm flap closures, side-release buckles and a built-in all-weather drawstring cover protect against the elements, while loads of storage pockets, including stretch mesh side pockets keep key items handy.

Remove the Velcro partitions, and you have a roomy day bag — with space for a camera. Nova Sport 35L AW in slate gray or pepper red costs $110.
