The Lowepro camera backpack is an excellent value, since most camera backpacks with an all weather feature are expensive!
This bag is identacle to the Lowepro Pro Runner 200 AW. The AW means it is an all weather bag. Stored in the outside bottom, is a rain cover. For this price, it is not easy to find an all weather bag.
Same as their bags costing much more, it is made out of Lowepro's ballistic rip stop nylon.
There's plenty of room for an extra camera body or additional lens. You can fit a Nikon D90 with a 28-200 lens on it into the bag. The bag is well designed and extremely well made. There are slots on the bottom to add straps to attach a larger tripod and a small tripod or monopod can be attached to the face of the bag. The outside zippered region will hold MP3 player, a cell phone, pens, notebooks or pads, and mesh pockets are on both sides. With an elastic chest strap and well padded shoulder straps, it rests comfortably on the upper shoulders.
It may be a really tight fit, if you have the accessory battery grip/pack. There's no quick access to the camera.
For cycling or backpacking, this camera backpack can be used. Why spend a lot more on a waterproof bag? The all weather cover should do the trick.
I would recommend it to anyone because the backpack is a great bag at a great price!
