Lowepro ViewPoint BP 250 AW easily carries DJI Mavic Pro Fly more combo plus extra batteries propellers GoPro tripod landing pad surface pro 4 headphones.

DJI Mavic ProWhen buying the DJI Mavic Pro one has a choice to either buy the standard Mavic Pro with controller or the Mavic Pro “Fly More Combo”. The latter, which I went for, has a bunch of useful extras such as a car charger, two extra batteries, a battery charging hub, quick release propellers, battery to power bank adapter and a shoulder bag.

However, there is a problem. The Mavic shoulder bag cannot hold the Mavic Pro and controller and everything offered in the Fly More Combo. At best it can hold the following:

  • the Mavic Pro,
  • the controller,
  • one extra battery,
  • spare propellers and some memory cards.

I am not impressed with the size of the bag. The Mavic shoulder bag sold on its own costs $79, which is a steep price for such a small bag and I recommend you do not buy it if you are considering it.

Lets face it, drone pilots will carry other devices such as DSLR camera, a lens, GoPro, a tripod, a handheld gimbal, cables, a landing pad etc. so a bigger bag is needed.

A bag for every day

I also wanted a bag that I can use on a day to day basis allowing me space for my headphones, a laptop and a light top or jacket.

Introducing the Lowepro Viewpoint BP 250 AW.

Have a look at this excellent video review by Benton Joyce. It ticks all the boxes for me and will replace my 7 year old Osprey backpack. As such I have ordered the Lowepro BP 250 from Amazon.
