I am looking for a bag pack for traveling and I had physically went down to TK foto for a hands on experience of those bags. I had come to a choice between lowepro fastback 250 and vanguard uprise 46.
Below is my requirements:
1. 15inch laptop compartment
2. Quick side access
3. A compartment for jacket/misc items
Good to have:
4. Tripod holder (will be getting sirui tripod)
5. Rain cover(can always get a 3th party rain cover)
6. Side pocket for water bottles.
I do understand that fastpack does not come with raincover, tripod holder and side pocket, but the shorter depth and internal compartments are good to have over uprise.
Uprise 46 come matches most of the requirements but it seems bulkier.
Price of lowepro is $130 and uprise at $180.
Below are the lists of equipments to brig around:
1. Canon 550d with grip
2. Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 vc
3. Canon 10-22mm
4. Canon 70-200mm f4 IS(will be getting)
5. Speedlite 580ex II(waiting list)
6. Tianya filters and cokin holder
7. Cleaning kits
Pardon to be long winded as I am trig to be careful with the right bag purchase as I will be carrying the above mention equipments traveling ard in foreign land.
Deeply appreciate CSers from reading my post.
Will be waiting for your feedback and advise.
