I plan on buying a Lowepro Flipside 200 or 300. I will be putting in a 15-85 w/hood attached to a 50D, 50mm f/1.8 w/hood, 55-250 w/hood, 430ex, one extra battery, and one extra CF card. I'll also be using the tripod holder on the outside of the bag. Do you guys know which one would be better?

You may want to look at the Flipside 400 as this will give you a little extra room.

I think the 400 might be too big!

get the 300. 200 might be too tight and not much room to grow. and the 200 looks so small, it looks weird.

I would opt for the 300. The 300 isn't that much bigger than the 200, but you'll be able to fit more gear.

i was going to get the 300 however I decided to get the tamrac evoultion 6, which is pretty close in size to the 300 mainly because it had the extra compartment to carry personal items that the 300 doesn't have - check it out if you haven't....just another option:)

Get the 400, you'll fill it up in due course ;)

The 400 has a much nicer thicker padded waist strap which doesn't cut into the skin after a long days walk, compared with the 300. (never owned a 200 but i think the waist belt is the same as the 300?)

I also thought about the 200 but went with the 300 it is a med size bag that can hold a surprising amount of gear , I have put 2 1D cameras a 70-200 non IS ,28-135 IS ,a tokina 12-24 and a 501.8 plus using the half size part of the bag fitted 3 of the batteries in it or I could have put a flash there instead and most of the time I just take a lot less. I already have a small backpack and several Big bags so the 300 was perfect for me.

I wanted a small backpack, and got the 300 and it's great, but too small.

i have the 300, it fits a gripped 50D w/15-85 attached, 50mm 1.4, 28-135, and a small flash (430exII will work) but my 580exii doesn't fit.

I've had the 300 for about a year now. It's a nice, relatively compact size which should work for the gear you have listed. although might be a bit tight.

I recently became a bit frustrated with being unable to fit some of my newer gear together the way I wanted and ordered the 400. It offers a nice bit of extra room, and I really like the all-weather cover, as there have been several times I've wished the 300 had one.

I've got a 400 and I decided on it after looking at the 300 because it had the added features such as the rain slick and size and weight were not a lot different between it and the 300 nor was there a great price difference . I think it's best to buy a big larger than you need just in case you do need the extra room plus you're not packing it so tight .

300, its the perfect size and will give you some room to grow which youll need. 400 is WAY too big.
