I'm looking to purchase a backpack for my camera gear/laptop and was wondering if anybody had any suggestion. The bag will be used for day trips and oversea trips. I'm currently at a Tamrac Aero Speed Pack 85

lowepro fastpack 250 and it can hold a 15" laptop as well. I think it's about half the price of the tamrac you're looking at.

I own a fastpack 250. it is a good backpack BUT for me it has two major drawbacks
1) it does not have tripod mount, and 2) it is not all weather.

Lowepro apparently realized this issue and released a new version, calld DSLR fastback 250.

the two bags are very similar (even the prices are very close at least on B&H). I hope I should have got the DSLR 250 instead of the "classic" 250...

ah didn't even know about that one, but the bag is kinda big for me when I want to just carry camera and one lens sometimes. Trying to find one for that instead of carrying around this huge backpack

I think I should have actually seen the bag in person before buying. Pretty big and bulkier than I thought it would be. Think will sell mine and get something smaller

They have a whole bunch of different bag sizes; did you look through all of them? or just the expedition class bags?

Snydremark, I didn't think it would be so bulky. I read that the smaller ones have trouble fitting the 7D with 17-55mm or longer lens

It's a tight fit, but I can stuff the 7D + 100-400 into the Small ICU, as long as I don't want much else in there. Plus, the ICU itself comes with D-rings that you can slap a shoulder strap on and carry as a shoulder bag, if you don't want to take one of the packs.

Which small would you recommend that is not so bulky?
