A great day pack for photo trips, the Lowepro 500AW fits a load of camera gear in the main compartment, has a laptop sleeve should you need it and a reasonably large front pocket for sundry items (as well as a zipped pouch that velcros into the top of the main compartment) but does suffer the usual camera bag problem of having nowhere to stash things like a jacket.
If I don't need to carry a bunch of extra gear though, it’s my go-to backpack for a day of scouting or short photo trips. The smaller 400AW is also great, just slightly, well, smaller.
Here’s a sample image taken with the Lowepro Flipside 500AW:
