I found that a 17" laptop complicated things a good bit...I settled on the Lowepro Fastpack 350 - it can hold a DSLR + large lens, has space for 5 more flashes/lenses/etc, a smallish open bag section on top of that, and a slot for a 17" laptop in back. It holds everything, more or less.

The best backpack that I found is the F-stop Tilopa bag. Always sold out and you don't see people getting rid of them because they're awesome!

Another vote for F-stop. I have the Satori, and definitely won't get rid of it unless it is for a better F-stop.

I also use the fastpack 350, holds all my gear no issues. And its relatively cheap.

third f-stop vote, but it's more of an outdoors person's bag. If you just want camera gear and a laptop also check thinktankphoto.

I use the lowepro pro runner 450, for storage of my gear, I use micro & mini lowepro, when I am out and about.

Considering the 1624 pelican for storage,

Other back packs to consider Fstop, Kata and Tenba

If I was going to consider any of the 3 mentioned above, it would be f stop
I ike the new Kenti in there line up, whats cool about it, no need to take back pack off , there is a side access , where you can swing the back pack and get camera and lense with out putting back pack on ground . Think sling !!! Day outings ...

Fstop also offers other back packs, for overnight hikes or longer, you can bring your camera gear and your other needs for camping, larger bags

The tenba offers this also, but I dont like there bag, as the material is to stiff and not as forgiven

If your traveling via airplane , the pelican 1514 , i beleive is allowed as carry on.

I will be using it at motocross tracks and hiking from time to time.Don't travel much but it is important to be able to carry on airplane.

Thanks for all the info.
