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

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.
Found it a few weeks ago for 98$

Best part is, it looks nothing like it has $$$$ worth of camera gear in it

I highly recommend it

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

Lowepro makes some good bags, and some lines from them are great...the Nova, Stealth Reporter and Classified series. Tamrac bags, especially the Expedition 7, are also very well made.

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.

I carry my tripod separately in a shoulder bag.

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).

Still a great series of bags

Lots of good advice here for you.
My suggestion? Take the gear you want to a good store, put your stuff in it, and wear it as you will when you buy it. Make sure you can get to your camera and lens.
My concerns have been rain and snow, snakes and scorpions. edit: so I have different bags for different needs.

Favourite shooting bag for me? Domke.
Favourite carry bag for me? Domke.
Favourite protected safe storage bag? Toss up. Lowepro Stealth Reporter/Think Tank UD40 edit: no snakes or scorpions allowed!
Have an old LowePro backpack. It's so heavy it's like portaging a canoe. A heavy one.

Good luck!


Dave
