LowePro's Flipside Sport line of bags are designed for taking all the gear you might need on a big hike through the wilderness — and then some. They not only have space for your camera, lenses, and associated extras, but also have a special pouch designed for a hydration reservoir, so that you can stop yourself collapsing from dehydration along the way. Now the line has its biggest option, with the Flipside Sport 20L AW.

The newly revealed bag is the third and largest addition to the Flipside Sport line. It features 20L of storage, which according to their math is enough space for a Pro DSLR body with attached 300mm f/2.8 lens, a second pro body, small laptop, extra lenses and flash, chargers, accessories, a tripod or monopod, climbing gear like a trekking pole or ice axe, plus the 1.5 liter water reservoir. That's a lot of stuff to carry with you across a mountain.

The Flipside Sport line definitely has a very outdoorsy bent when it comes to design. The shoulder straps feature lightweight, perforated, breathable padding, and the entire photo compartment can be pulled out to convert the bag into a daypack. Photographers will also likely appreciate the extra security of the back-side access, the included rain-cover, and a very substantial tripod attachment system.

The Flipside Sport 20L AW is available now for $179.99 in either blue or orange.
