I'm looking for a backpack for storage (most important right now) + transportation + shooting on the go for my gripped 7d. Right now I only have a 40mm pancake lens, but I will be adding more lenses soon.

Here are the options I've come up with so far:

  • Think Tank Streetwalker Pro
  • Think Tank Photo Urban Disguise 35 V2.0
  • Lowepro Fastpack 350AW
  • Lowepro Flipside 400AW


I'm open to other options as well.

In terms of size, the Urban Disguise 35 seems to most closely match the amount of gear I will eventually have. I really don't see myself ever owning 6 lenses.

I picked the other bags because they seemed to be the only other backbacks that could hold a gripped or pro body.

Would any of these bags work? Are the Think Tank bags worth the premium price? Do you have any other recommendations?

I just got a clik elite probody sport w/ the computer sleeve. Have my 7D with grip, tamron 70-300 attached, 10-22, 50 f1.8, and a 35-105. With the grip it's a tight fit, but it works. In the upper compartment I have my flash and other misc things. Got this pack because of the computer compartment and the ability to carry a hydration bladder as well.

Love it so far. Very comfortable, and also has a way to carry a tripod.Got mine on greentoe.com for $150.

Hmm that looks like a good option. Looks very comfortable too.

Does the upper compartment have any dividers or is it just one 1 big compartment?

I have the streetwalker pro and it carries either of my gripped bodies, all the lenses in my sig plus both flashes if I need them. It's a great bag and doesn't have a large footprint.

Its just one big compartment up top. I also like that you can take out the camera "area" and make it a regular backpack when you dont need to carry your gear around. I got this after looking at Lowpro and F-Stop. Great bang for the buck.

I like to go hiking and got this specifically for that.

Check out the video on the clik elite site.

I've used a Streetwalker Hard-drive for about 18 months and would definitely recommend it (I think the only difference with the Pro is that the HD will take a laptop). It's comfortable to carry long distances, airline carry-on, lets you pack a lot of kit if you want to (I can fit 2x 7Ds, one with 17-40 one with 70-200, 2x YN560II speedlites, 50mm, 8mm fisheye and 85mm f1.4 and my Phottix triggers without any drama) As with most backpacks, fast access isn't great (when compared to a shoulder bag) The slim profile also helps if you're in a crowd as it doesn't bump into people as much as some bulkier designs do.


2x 7d, EOS 3 film body, G15, X-Pro1 with 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4 & 60mm f2.4 macro, Kiev rangefinder with 50mm lens. 70-200 f4L, 17-40 f4 L, 50mm f2.5 macro, nifty fifty, 20-40 EX HSM, Samyang 85mm f1.4, Rokinon 8mm f3.5, 2x Fuji X-Pro1, Fuji XF 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4 macro, 3x Yongnuo 560 II, 540EZ, Phottix Strato 2 wireless triggers, extension tubes, Manfrotto 055 tripod, manfrotto monopod.

I use the fastpack 350 AW and I love it. I can fit 2 flashes, gripped 5d3 w/ 70-200 2.8 is ii. 50mm 1.8 and 24-105. Then in the upper compartment I can fit pretty much anything else I would like. The only downside I have found is the tripod holder interferes with the water bottle holder.

F Stop Gura is a really nice backpack with the ability to add as much gear as you need via the different ICU's. It's got plenty of space for other stuff as well.

Of the options you listed I'd go with the Streetwalker Pro. That was my other option...

I've also got a Fastpack, in my case the 250AW. It holds a gripped 7D with either a 70-200 II or a 100-400L attached, and beside it I can fit a 24-70L II and a 17-55 2.8. On the other side of the camera I can fit two flash units. The upper compartment holds lots of smaller stuff, and a reasonable travel tripod can be attached to the side of the backpack.
