Greetings
I am new to this site and I am looking for a backpack. I am just starting out and need some ideas. I have a XSI, nifty fifty, 18-55 IS kit lens,EFS 55-250 IS lens and a Vivitar DF-383 flash. My Budget is no more than $125.00. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Tamrac makes some good packs

I'd consider the Tamrac Adventure 7 or Adventure 6 for your kit.

I'd get the Canon Backpack and save the $100 for more camera gear.

The canon pack is a good deal, but if you get one pick up some small carabiners to clip the main zipper closed. Under a full load the zippers can creep open and you have some spillage. seeing a few hundred bucks worth of glass bounce is a terrible feeling.

i only use my Canon backpack when i shoot events/concerts and I need a full bag. 2 bodies, 3 zooms, a flash and a prime. you just scared the **** out of me.

now i need a new backpack for these situations. and i hate the lowepro flipside. way too "stiff" for me.

The lowepro mini trekker is a tad larger but the same functionality as the canon bag. I used the canon bag, for a while, and as long as you you dont stress the zipper so they pull its a fine bag. I just used a niteize small caribiner to clip the pulls together after my one unfortunate but not critical accident. I read about using the clips from another user who had the same experience.

After having a picture of glass bounceing enter my mind the Canon is out of the running. I am leaning towards a Lowepro. Thank you for all of the info

Lowepro Versapack (external link) would be my choice for a new bag. Split between camera and personal gear, with rain cover and tripod holder.

For the price the Canon bag can't be beat. I use the clip ALL the time. Had a close call ONE TIME.

Another vote for the Canon. $40 is a steal!

Lot of bag for the money, but it looks like you joined a circus.
