I am currently using a Lowepro Sling shot 300 AW. So I know Lowepro is very rugged and durable. Leaning towards the Pro Runner 450 AW, didn't want to spend over $200.00 , but should never need anything bigger.

Does anyone know if my MAnfrotto 055XPROB Tripod will work with the ProRunner 450?

Thanks again, Troy

I recently picked up the lowepro protrekker 400AW, fantastic backpack for hiking.

I really wanted a hydro bladder and wanted it external from the camera compartment, and it fits the bill perfectly.

Holds a ton of gear and has 3 options to carry a tripod.

It'll carry a 17" laptop & meets max airline carryon size.

A guy in an outdoor shop once told me: "there is two things that you should not try to save money on, your shoes and your backpack"

After I got home from one of my greatest trips ever with severe pain in my neck due to a not so great backpack I can only say: DAMN was that guy right.
I hate that my very comfortable hiking shoes have worn out after 4 years though :(

I have a Lowepro Flipside 300. I like it a lot. It holds my T2i, 18-55mm kit lens, Sigma 30mm f1.4 with hood, Canon 85mm f1.8 with hood, Canon 100mm f2.8 with hood, Sigma EF-530 DG Super, an extra third party battery with charger, OEM charger, a small cleaning kit, Gary Fong Puffer Diffuser, Canon wireless remote, and I'm currently borrowing a 55-250mm kit lens. All of that fits in there. LOL.

Also, it really is water repelling since I was caught in a downpour in Hawaii, and it was dry as a bone inside the backpack.
