    Best way to really find out is to go down to the shop to see it for yourself rather than guessing.....Also you did not state the equipments you want to put in (e.g. 1DSLR + lens + prime, flash, Grip etc)

    The advantages of going down is you can find another model that suits better if this Fastpack 250 doesn't work out nicely for you.

    I had the fast pack 250. I find it to be spacious enough when I travel with 3 lenses, a camera body and a flash and a 14in laptop. I still have the top compartment empty for my personal stuff. Problem is my 15.4 widescreen laptop will fit but it is quite tight. And the bag gets really heavy and with the tight laptop fit, the back becomes really stiff and uncomfortable. If your laptop is 15 in and above, I recommend you go for the 350.

    Many new bags have been released. I also recommend the vanguard skyborne series.

    I am using a kata 3n1-33 now. Now that I am not traveling as much. I am also considering a thinktank backpack, but my CFO has placed a ban on camera bags.

    In the end, you need to see for yourself also. Since different people have different needs. And everyone's definition of "big enough" is different.

    You can try MS Color main branch (infront of Jubilee) first (since I think you live in AMK from the "location" info). They have abit of bags there, probably not as much as Cathay Photo, but I bought my Vanguard & Lowepro bags there. for the prices, best to get quotes from different shops. Some shops just sell cheaper for some models than others.

    The have backpacks in the shelves outside....all wrapped up in clear plastic bags. The shelve closest to the main door & tripods, middle section are the slingshots, the backpack (Fastpack & Flipside) is normally located at the top or bottom level. I normally look at every section to ensure that the dun have it before I go other shops :P

    If you can't find the bag you want, you can try asking the staffs. If it's OOS and you don't want to take the trouble to go Funan or SLS, you can wait till it restocks if not urgent.

    *I do agree that they have more slingbags than backpacks*

    The Vanguard bags are located abit further away from the main door in a metal rack (IIRC), got my Vanguard Uprise 45 (backpack) there. I think Vanguard bags are normally more expensive than Lowepro bags.

    If you only got a d3000 + 2 lens, then most probably this bag could be too big...but it is the smallest fastpack which can fit laptop... TK and Cathay got quite a few selections of backpacks so you can there take a look...

    thanks!
    Can the tripod holder hold larger tripods? Do you find it useful? I've got a benro 550ex. not sure if it can fit.

    I find it useful for smaller tripods.

    Hi, I got my Fastpack 250 at the IT show. It fits my D7000, flash, kit lens, 70-300 and 35 prime comfortably in all the compartments. Still got some compartments free, so put my P&S also. My 13.3" laptop goes in comfortably into the laptop compartment. The top still got space so I keep my laptop charger and umbrella and a few other things like cables etc. I love this bag, but I think too big to double up as an everyday office bag, so I use it only for my photo/outdoor trips

    Fastpack does not come with rain cover. When i was still using the fast pack, I bought a raincover at a hiking equipment store for around $10.
