Im a new guy on this forum. But i've had 3 backpacks and finally found one i truly love!!

I have a bad l5-and l4 so a backpack is a must a sling pack hurts terribly.

I found this Lowepro flipside 400... It is honestly amazing. Raincover and had room for my 14mm 2.8 35mm 1.4 50mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8 and 70-200 2.8 and 100mm macro and camera. Most times i take the macro 100mm out and leave the 85mm in.

I have three backpacks. One is the Think Tank Streetwalker Hard drive. It's a tiny bit over your $200 budget, but it would carry all the gears you listed. I use this one whenever I go on a photoshoot that doesn't require flying.

When I fly for assignment, all the gears are loaded into my carry-on: a Pelican 1514, and everything else such as clothes go into my checked bag.

When I go on vacation, I use two backpacks to carry my camera and Surface Pro 3, depends on which airline I pick.

If flying United Airlines, I bring a Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 150AW. This is the only backpack I found that fit United Airlines's personal item sizer: 9"x10"x17". This will allow me to bring my clothes and other travel essentials on my carry-on bag.

The Fastpack 150 AW will fit my 5D III ungripped with 24-70 II attached, a 600 EX-RT, a Sigma 50 f/1.4 Art, and my Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

If flying American Airlines, I take a Lowepro Vertex 100 AW, which can hold quite a bit of gears.

Thinktank.... Built like tanks, great customer service if you should ever have a problem. I currently have 5 of their bags. Depending on the gear I need to take dictates which one I use. Currently the backpack that fits two pro bodies and lens kit for me is the Airport Commuter. A bit more than what you are looking to spend but for me well worth the cost to carry what I need plus a laptop and iPad. I have also owned the Shape Shifter, but did not carry quite enough gear for my needs.
