I'm in the market for a backpack that can hold a camera with 2-3 small lenses (fisheye, 30mm, medium telephoto). I'd like something with camera space and a moderate amount of personal space (for flying, travel, hiking, etc.).

I've searched high and low and these three seem to be the best of the bunch. If anyone owns any of the three, please let me know which you feel is superior and why!

My budget is ideally $150, hopefully lower:lol:

I'd like rear or side access to camera stuff (for saftey when traveling), no front access.

Also, I would consider getting a dedicating hiking backpack and buying a camera insert to go the DYI route if that would work best.

Thanks in advance!

thinkTANK's Street Walker backpack might be a good consideration for you as well. It's priced at $149.75 There's some really positive reviews about their whole streetwalker lineup.
Check it out here :

Edit* Didn't read the end and saw you wanted side access.

i'm looking for something that has more of an outdoorsy feel to it. that thinkTANK looks to be much bulkier than the other choices I listed. If i wasnt going to be very active with that bad, that would be a great choice.

thanks!

I'm real happy with the Photo Sport 200. Very light bag with padding only surrounding the camera portion. It's a GREAT bag for hiking. You could probably find better bags for travel or flying but for hiking the 200 works well for me. I don't have either of the other bags to comment on.

ya, it looks like the lowepro and clik are leaps and bounds above the burton after closer inspection, so its between those two.

i've been seeing conflicting information that a 50d (which i have) will not fit into the clik bag I'm interested in. some sites say it is designed for the rebel series, while others say the xD series will fit.

i guess i'll get in contact with clik!

if he can barely fit a 5d2 and 24-70 or 24-105 in the compartment, that so should speak volumes for you
