The Flipside 300 is also not very bulky, so it fits fine on women. You might be able to fit your gear in the 200, if you want it even smaller.

A lot of reviews have said the rigid straps are very uncomfortable as they are too stiff, how do you find them ?

Where have you seen reviews? I haven't seen any real review other than a New York Times blog entry (external link).

I really like the straps, they aren't really that rigid they are made of an EVA like foam. I would say that the straps have to be properly adjusted (like really any backpack especially one with a frame).

I should have said a few reviews

Rahn did a review last week and some other posters commented about the strap comfort. If your carrying a heavy load the main support to maintain comfort is the waist belt , it looks quite good on this bag.

Interesting development... I decided to move ahead and order a Case Logic SLR sling bag SLRC-205. I placed the order on Amazon and a couple days later received a notification that my order has been cancelled. While doing research online, I am seeing that just about any and all of these bags are out of stock! Interesting...

Needless to say, I'm becoming a bit concerned because I leave for Europe next week and still need a camera bag that won't hurt my back. I was really looking forward to receiving this one... ~sigh~

i'm still selling mine if you're still interested!

I have a borealis AT backpack from mountainsmith, and I was really liking it until I tried on a crumpler in a camera store recently.

Really really comfortable, but you pay a premium for it.

This is my light travelling pack and day pack, I have a SLRC4 backpack to haul all the other gear and netbook around when I absolutely have to.

QUOTED IMAGE

Any idea if the CaseLogic is large enough for a 5DMKII w/ Grip attached? The Caselogic looks like something I would like to use while on my trip but uncertain on whether or not my equipment can fit. I suppose I could bring two batteries and lose the grip for the trip.

I believe you can, but you cannot have a lens mounted on the camera and can probably carry 2 lens with you. I'm looking to unload mine if you're interested.

The bag can handle a grip but it is a tight fit, with anything larger than a 24-105mm it won't fit. If you had a t2i sized camera with grip it would fit easily.

It bulges a bit and takes some room from the front pocket.

If I don't need my bg attached, it gets transported in the side pocket (with the 200mm and TC 2.0x for reference). This still has plenty of room for other things.

Lannes you are the man. VERY good to know. Glad it fits because I had already ordered one for my trip. I had planned to leave the grip behind if it ended up not fitting. haha

Thanks again man!

Travis, glad you like it, it awesome as a walk around and it fits quite a lot of stuff. I like the size, which doesn't get in the way.
I notice a lot have been sold recently, so they must be pretty popular.

You might be interested I made mine into a sling strap by adding a Black Rapid ConnectR-2 to it.

Hey guys, sorry to bump an old thread, but I'm going to Europe in June and am considering getting the caselogic bag.

Do any of you think it can fit a 7D gripped, with a 17-55 attached, along with a 70-200 f/4 and Tokina 11-16?
