What are the difference between the Fastpack 350 vs 350AW?

AW - All Weather, due to the rain cover


....the best camera is the one you have on you at the time.

Hi. If I have a gripped 600D normally mounted with 15-85mm, 50mm F1.8 and a 70-200mm F4, do you think the DSLR Video Fastpack 250AW will work for these gears? The 350AW looks kinda bulky, especially when I am kinda short (168cm).

The 350AW really isn't that huge, however I've never used the 250AW so I can't say how small or big it is in comparison. I did a quick check of some other reviews and someone said they were able to hold your type of gear in a 250AW. Hope this helps.

Hi Mike. Thanks for the reply. Went ahead and bought the 350AW 2 hours after my post. :lol:

Decided to get the 350AW as both 250AW and 350AW doesn't seem that much different and my 15inch laptop fits in the 350AW better. Not sure about the 250AW but the 350AW let me store the gripped 600D mounted with 70-200 F4 without removing the lens.

Once again. Thanks for your reply.

I am looking forward to Christmas. I asked for this bag from my sister and my mom so hopefully I get it. I need a bag to carry my 17" HP laptop and most if not all of my Canon gear, and hopefully my gopro stuff as well.

Hang on! If you have a 17.3" HP Pavilion series, I will warn you that both the fast pack 350 and 350AW are a pretty tight fit. I also upgraded to an Alienware so I went with a TT Shapeshifter instead.


Canon 7D w/grip, Canon SX30 IS (modified for IR), Rokinon 14mm, Canon 24-105 L IS, Sigma 50mm, Canon 70-200 F/2.8 L IS II, Canon 100mm L IS, Kenko 1.4x Pro DG, Canon 2x II extender, Yongnuo YN-565EX, Induro CT414 with Induro BHL-3 and GHB-A

Im used to a tight fit, I have the HP backpack that "fits" 15.4" and my Dv7 fits, barely lol.

Wish I had one in a store locally so I could double check fitment.

I just ordered the 250 AW yesterday, so it'll arrive tomorrow. I have a gripped 7D and a 70-200mm f/2.8L II. I'll let you know how it fits.


EOS R | 7D | 24-70 f/2.8L II | 70-200 f/2.8L II | 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L | 17-55 f/2.8 | 11-16 f/2.8

OK, just received the 250AW. Here's what I was able to pack into the lower gear compartment:

7D camera WITH grip, and 70-200mm f/2.8L II lens attached (hood reversed)
EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom lens with hood reversed
28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 kit zoom lens with hood reversed
Sigma EF-350 DG Super flash
Yongnuo YN560 flash

The backpack rested easily on my back, and it was quick to slip my right arm out of the armstrap, spin the pack to my left, and remove just the camera w/lens for quick shots.

I'm planning on carrying it around Disney World for a week in March, but I don't plan on walking around with the flash units, of course. Probably not the grip either, since I can easily swap batteries if I need to. I will be adding a 3.5 pound tripod to the side and probably some rain ponchos and cookies for the grandkids in the upper compartment.

tl; dr summary: Easily holds a gripped 7D with large telephoto, bunches of other gear.


EOS R | 7D | 24-70 f/2.8L II | 70-200 f/2.8L II | 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L | 17-55 f/2.8 | 11-16 f/2.8

I ordered the 350 today but am now not so sure. This looks like their sling bags except with two shoulder straps. I thought it was like the bags that are secure by opening against your back.
