From a security point of view I'm interested in backpacks with access from the rear.
I also want two compartments. One for camera stuff and the other for personal things e.g. rain jacket, food etc.
The only things I've found are Lowepro flipside (which doesn't have two compartments anyway) and the Hama Daytour 230.
Are there any other rear access backpacks out there?
I only want to spend about £100 maximum.
Or are there other backpacks that are as effective security wise?

Thanks for your help

My dakine sequence has access in the rear (ok that sounded weird), and has front access for other items.

That's exactly what I have too - the Dakine Sequence (external link). Close to your price range (at least US price).

Some of the Crumpler backpacks, and most of the F-Stop backpacks have rear-access for camera gear.

The F-Stop backpacks all have rear access. The Guru is about the same size as the Flipside 400 but is a little wider. Depending on what ICU (Internal Camera Unit) that you put into the bag you can have room for other stuff and access it throught the top. Details are at http://fstopgear.com/ (external link).

Conincidently, I looked at these today. There are two sizes, and two colours.
I'm very tempted. First impression, more useful for me than my Think Tank StreetWalker.
I carry a dslr with grip attached (sometimes) and two moderate sized zooms. I add a SONY NEX system on occasion. I have room left over.

I don't know how you would carry anything other than camera gear though. I think I would have to be creative to carry lunch, let alone a change of clothing or coat, within the pack.

I sold my Streetwalker Pro because I do not really care for backpacks but I decided to give the smaller 10 a try because it does seem very functional. I do bike, hike and travel and all I have are shoulder bags so there are times I can see this being very useful. I was going to go for the 15 but for me smaller usually means I am more likely to use it and I generally do not take more then 2 to 3 lenses.

I looked at the video and the 10 looks a little more streamline and should fit any 2 or 3 of my lenses just fine.

Anyone have experience with these 10 vs 15?

This could be an issue especially with the 10 but bags like the Kata 3-1 or slingshots have a separate area but I did not really care for how the camera area worked. Its like a backpack that does nothing really well.

I like the concept; in fact I almost bought the larger AW backpack from LowePro, with protected entry from the back.
I truly appreciate the way TTank bags are made. However, it adds to the weight.
I like the way this bag opens up. I can set it down in the snow or on dirt, and the harness and bag back stays clean. My Streetwalker, I have to set the strap side down, then clean it off before I put it back on .
The LowePro design just makes sense to me.

The 15L bag carried my d300s with grip attached, 18-200VR mounted. My 70-300 VR lens stood up, with lens reversed. That's how deep the bag is. I didn't have the pack loaded. However, it was much more comfortable than the StreetWalker, which I've hardly used. I'm not being critical of Think Tank and their bags. I'm being critical of my choice. I'm confident that the SW would stand up well to any use or abuse I could throw at it.

Yep I agree the TT stuff is excellent and really well made. I really plan to keep just my Retro 7 and UD 60 with the Retro 7 being my main bag and the UD being the bag I use for transport. But overall I much prefer TT bags, I just don't know if I really care for the sling o matic bags. This bag is a bit more sporty and it seems like a better concept. For $65 bucks it seems well worth it.
