The computrekker plus is cheaper and lighter than the nature trekker ... :dunno:

Think that depends on where you travelling. Used the Nature Trekker II before and I would not carry it on the MRT during the peak hours ... people will be killed if you turn your body too fast ;p

Oh... its a nice to have option, but I don't think I would need it...

C'mon, anyone used these bags? any complaints/praise?
I used both before for overseas trips but sold them as I just don't like them.

Though it can hold my 500mmf4 lens, cameras, accessories and laptop. I find the bag itself to be too heavily padded and very very heavy. Already my gears are heavy and the additional weight of the bag is just too much.

Now I just use a Nighthawk backpack and a few thin neoprene sheets to wrap round my lens and cameras like tortillas and put it into the backpack. The blackhawk can hold up to 1 500mmf4 with camera attached, a 200-400f4 and another camera, 2 flashes, a notebook, a camelbak water bag and other small accessories. Can be carry on board a plane too. I tested this set up in my recent trip to Romania and I find no problem at all.

IMHO, I find that if the weight of the camera bag is up to 30-40% of your gear it is not worth at all. Just my opinion.
