I like the Lowerpro backpacks. It's been great.

I use lowepro bags mainly, but if i where to get a backpack it would be a Kata bumblebee.

I have a Dakine sequence backpack. I Love this thing. It has amazing padding, can carry a good amount of gear and not worry about it getting damaged, as its made for snowboarding photographers.

For backpacks, the Thinktank Rotation 360. Built like a tank, you can access it while wearing it. You pay for the innovation.

With all this mention of Lowepro and as a self plug, I have a nice Lowepro backpack for sale if you're interested (see my sig).

I've been so happy with Domke bags over the last 25 years I've never really even looked at any other bags.

Jeeze, all of the above are pretty popular, many of us have purchased many bags. I currently use a Think Tank Retrospective 10 in Pinestone and a Think Tank ShapeShifter backpack. But all the others mentioned are excellent suppliers. There are hundreds of bags out there so it's more about what you want to put in it and how you expect to use it, and where you will be taking it (city streets vs, mountains). I've had 9, got it down to 3 which includes the original Canon bag that came with my 5D classic kit and you know what, it's an excellent bag too.

I love Kata. I've got the 3N1 22 (for carrying nearly everything at once, in a comfortable backpack or sling configuration) and the H-16 holster for an everyday runaround bag. The H-16 is the best designed, best-configured, most comfortable grab-and-go bag I've ever had.

Lowepro, Think Tank, Kata, Crumpler, Domke, Tamrac, & the list goes on. I use Tamrac bags because I like what they have to offer. That said, do your homework & take the time to do some research & make up your own mind as to what works for you. You're the one that has to use it. The quality of all these bags is very good so find one that meets your needs. Happy hunting!

I am a fan of Lowepro... their slingshot and fastpack is all I use. The new versions have a tripod holder on the side but they are made for small lightweight carbon fiber tripods IMO (which is outside my budget).
