I've had my Lowepro transit backpack 350 aw for a couple of years.
Use it mainly for travels and dayhikes etc.

I like the format of it, but there are a couple of downsides with it and I really need to replace it.

IMAGE: http://www.jebiga.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/LOWEPRO-350AW-TRANSIT-BACKPACK.jpg

The main problem is that if I pack it as in the middle image here and take out the camera, the walls are not steady enough to keep the lens at the top in place, it will fall down, and shake around in the bag.
(And I've even modified the interior to be a little bit more steardy)

I though really love the design (Doesn't scream "CAMERA BAG") and the detailing is quite good. The straps are fairly comfortable, and the size is manageable

What I don't like is as mentioned above the interior design does not work for me, the "top" compartment is a little bit of waste of space (even though I LOVE it for "non-camera stuff" when on hikes, but could put anything I put in there in a "lens compartment" as well so... (And when opening the bag to get to the camera equipment, everything in there is exposed anyway so).


My needs:
Backpack - Not to big
Comfortable/ergonomic straps
Durable
Carrying handle
Laptop compartment (Today a 13")
Need to fit:
5D Mark IV - Gripped - With 24-70 mounted (preferably also with lens hood on)
70-200/2,8L
1-2 more smaller lenses (like 50mm or 16-35)
LOVE for some small compartments for smaller things (Keys, memory cards, batteries, passport when traveling etc)


So, any tips? Would love some images as well!

I just bought the Lowepro 450 AW II, this will fit your Gripped 5D MK IV

If too big and/or expensive, here are three more that might fit your needs

I just returned the Lowepro Pro Runner 350 AW II as the Pack Pack would not fit my 6D with the Grip attached..............​.

Can't you re-position the partitions so the lens is at the bottom and the camera is more toward the top. I don;t have your particular bag but I do have a Lowepro and I was able to do that.

Thanks. The Pro Runner looks great. (Except I would have prefered having the opening against my back).

To bad that the 350 does not fit gripped cameras, would have loved that size!

Not on this particular bag no.
Hard to describe but it is built a little bit different so It is hard to put the dividers exactly as you want (I think this i because they have tried to manage both the capability to cope for Camera with big lens + option to open from the side.
