    Default Recommand me a backpack

    hi all, i've decided to go with a backpack after super long. lol. so hoping pros and advice me as i have no info at all. I know some of you are gonna tell me that i should go down to the store to look at it myself. I just wanna get feedback from people with experience.

    Backpack must fit:

    - 13 inch laptop
    - 550d + BG (quite fat)
    - 17-55mm
    - 70-200mm f4 (my next purchase i'm saving for)
    - 430ex flash
    - tripod

    anything to recommend? i only know crumpler. so a good example would be the karachi outpost s size.

    budget is like roughly 200 (+/-)?

    Im using thinktank streetwalker pro for backpack, pretty good and solid and holds everything you mentioned with exception of the laptop. I remember there is another streetwalker model that had a laptop compartment.

    Lowepro has.. For the Flipside series, but no compartment for your laptop though. Laptop would be the Fastpack 250, 350.

    Yes, sry tt i wasnt clear on my side .. i was referring to fastpack does not have compartment for tripod .. ...

    For flipside series only 200 & 300 (i suppose) hv tripod holder ..

    PS: Y not get a tripod bag instead n sling like a rifle sling ? my 2 cents... or alternative can get a laptop sling bag or smth

    I got the Lowepro Computrekker Plus AW. Huge backpack that holds my laptop, 2 bodies, 3 lenses, 2 battery chargers, ballhead, flashgun, 3 lens hoods, remote trigger, with lots of room to spare.

    I'm using the Bagman Backpack, very comfortable to use and can store everything in your list.

    for TS's gear, I think Lowepro Computrekker AW will suffice
    the Plus is big

    Agreed. The Plus is big indeed. I was trying to decide between the regular and the Plus but decided to go for the Plus based on the following:

    1. Price difference between the two is negligible.
    2. I really, really wanted to be able to put ALL my photo gear, plus laptop and its power adaptor, into a single backpack and have some room for growth. Only exception are my tripod and monopod. I didn't want to have to change backpack again if I get another lens or body, or whatever.

    Also, since I live in a dry climate, I don't use a dry cabinet. So I use the backpack as 'permanent' storage for all my photo gear when not out and about.

    Actually my 'perfect bag would be the Plus without the laptop compartment ...
