    A lot of bags can do that ... eg the Orion series, Orion Trekker, Mini etc ... Some can put camera on the bottom part and leaves the top part for clothes, water bottle, snacks etc ...

    The most popular one based on what I see with fellow photographers must be the Minitrekker backpack. The original one is good enough, the newer versions some got wheels, some can put laptop, etc.

    I think one of the big decision is whether or not you want to carry your notebook computer in your backpack along with your camera gear. Last year I bought a Crumpler Farmer's Double and used it frequently for my bsiness trips. That is a very big bag but still not the biggest. From Lowepro I think they have the compu trekker models.

    If you like less camera bag like designs then you should consider Crumpler also.

    OT: By the way I got my mini trekker AW at a garage sale last Sat for US$8 only. The bag was very dusty when i found it so I managed to bargain the price down from US$10. After I got it home I washed it and it is now good as new.

    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    Does anyone know if Orion Trekker II's bottom compartment is detachable from the top?

    CP's website said that it is... but one of the CP staff say it is not.

    Yes it is...

    For Rover , simply remove the cover between the compartments and you'll have one big backpack...
