depends on.

a) how much you want to spend
b) how many things you want to stuff
c) how much comfort you want

a) less then $40
b) quite a lot + laptop
c) lots of shoulder and back padding

a) no budget cos im looking for comfort.
thinktank cost - around $235
lowepro cost - around $145

b) i believe both bags can carry the same loads of equipments
thinktank -
Designed for use in urban and crowded environments, this slim, lightweight backpack also holds a 15” laptop, as well as a Pro-size DSLR and a 70-200 2.8 with hood attached.

lowepro -
1-2 SLRs and 4-6 lenses (80-200mm f/2.8) or compact medium format system; large notebook computer; accessories

c) comfort is my main priority cos i will be carrying my laptop all the time in the bag.

im sorry but my eyes have set only for these 2 bags.
just need opinions and reviews for those who owns this bag.
thanks!
cheers..

i like it. i have considered all possible alternatives and found that the thinktank suits what i want. big enough to store most of my stuff and comfortable. i didnt consider computrekker cos i think its wider than the thinktank and i didn't want to look like a ninja turtle.

i think u can only get it from this 2 shops at the moment. consider the pro if u dun need to put in a laptop. i considered the vertex 200&300, phototrekker, protrekker, kata, flipside 400, crumplers as well. not to mention tt airport series. :sweatsm:

Targus is the brand of bag i am using for my main camera bag in the thread. Extremely comfortable on the shoulders and back even if stuff a lot of gear in the bag.

if the shop allows, i recommend trying out both bags fully loaded to roughly gauge the comfort level on your back and shoulder.

I have been looking around for a camera bag like thinktank.

Thinktank Hard-drive looks somewhat like my Case Logic XNSLR-7. The Case Logic has a unique EVA molded Camera Cradle to house camera at top of the case for easy access which I like very much though. Agent here claimed to give 25yr warranty believe it or not.

About the same price too.

Thanks.

I have been using lowerpro reporter 300 for my trip and is a life saving with the good rain coat covering.

Now, looking for a haversack bag to spread the weight of the equipment when I move around.

I am considering either the Thinktank hard disk pro or the shape shifter bag...anybody here got them, kindly put some review in, I know website has review but would be good to heard from an asian users here as not all bags are suitable for small built asean people compare to european or american people...
