Thread: Recommendations for camera backpack

    I think is important for TS to set the budget first. A Firsthand Lowepro Fastpack 250 would cost around $120 there if not wrong.

    Here is the fastpack range.


    I suggest you start there and from there find the features that you are looking for in the bags. TTP, OP and CP has the largest collection of bags that i know off while Artworkfoto has the largest for Kata.

    I used a Lowepro computrecker plus before I got my TinkTank HD. Reason is because my 600mm is too tight fit in the lowepro. For comfort, I prefer the Lowepro as the weight is more distributed than the TT. Maybe its because I did not buy extra belt for the TinkTank whereas the Lowepro comes with one.

    My opinion is that the Kata is flexible in use while the Fastpack makes one more invisible in a crowd. See which one more important. Also can use the laptop compartment for other stuff.

    I have both the fastpack and 3n1. The 3n1 has better padded shoulder straps. The narrower shape of the 3n1-20 makes it easier to move through crowds vs the fastpack 250. I would recommend the kata 3n1-20 over the fastpack

    The problem with fastback and kata 3n1, is that in many countries both looks pretty obvious as camera bags. The 3n1 is due to the shape, and the fastpack is due to the big quick access on the side.

    My favourite is the Kata 3N1-22 strong, sturdy, well balanced, comfortable, flexible & easily accessible, not to mention nice looking. I rearrange the inside dividers & reorient the opening to fit my equipment. Hold 2 cams, UWA & teles incl documents & netbook (can even hold a D700+16-35 in top compartment for quick access). Include add on accessory tripod holder. Use slim combination locks also to restrict access. Can hand carry on board planes, fit into compartment or on floor between the legs. Chosed this over the Lowepro fastpack. Served me very well on all my travels.

    Did you re-arrange the inserts to hold 2 cameras (with lens attached) within the main compartment or with one camera in the top ?
