    I'm also using the Fastpack 250, which I would recommend. I usually bring it along if I commute between two offices (hence, need to lug along a heavy Thinkpad R61) and have a night shot scheduled on that day too.

    oh just a update guys, i got the fastpack 250 but didnt really like it, too much padding and the compartments doesnt seem to be able to fit files and paperwork. Instead sold it off and got a Mountain Dax backpack with pocket for lappy, so i just go daiso buy 2 soft pouches $2 each for my dslr and lappy. Lappy slots into pocket fine, But my d40 18-200mm maybe will move around a little on the outer pocket. Overall still cheaper than the fastpack. Deployment speed slower than fastpack though as it is not side entry.

    Talking Re: Value for money backpack for laptop and dslr

    Eh.... Was in the same situation as TS, was till thinking between Tamrac Aero 80 and adventure 9. Was almost confirmed on the Aero 80 untill i saw the actual thing itself.... the Aero 80 quite ugly... fattie bum bum..... so finally bought the tamrac adventure 9(camo). Pros: Look nice, Cons: The bag is quite big, however since you are looking a backpack to dump everything in, this has to be the one!!!!

    Hey Snapperholic, how much did you purchase the tamrac adventure 9 for ?

    AERO 80 = $155
    ADVENTURE 7 = $105
    ADVENTURE 9 = i go home check receipt

    Price might not be the best but i like dealing with MS color.

    As for Ts, if you are ever thinking of any of the above, below are some thoughts:-

    Aero 80: Too Fat! ugly! have prob fitting the standard 70 - 200 lens into it. can fit but tight!
    Adventure 7: Good day pack but cannot dump all in.
    Adventure 9: if you are looking for nice looking bag and can dump all in, this has to be the one. con: quite big and make me look like ninja turtle...........

    YUP!
    i think going down to feel it is better! i think you ask for the Aero 80 1st see you wanna be fat turtle or ninja turtle(adventure 9)!

    Jokes aside, the camoflage adventure 9 ROCKS!

    I'll second the Lowepro Fastpack 250.
    Fits all my equipments there. Plus my laptop on the backside, and my card reader/external HD on the top part.
    Really nice padding and fits my body nicely

    btw, I got the red one

    Would agree that lowepro fastpack 250 as an alternative. that one's also a gem!
