I'm looking for a backpack mainly for travel and airport use. Needs to accommodate a 15.5" laptop as well. I currently have the tamrac adventure 9 for this and I just think the upper section is a waste of space for a photo backpack. I use the lowepro flipside for short day hikes but it is hard to carry 2 packs just for photography when you're travelling as well as another for clothes and such, so it would be ideal to be able to take on a hike and not destroy your back and shoulders on a 10 mile trek! Wondering what everyone recommends. I need something I can grow in as well....I just went to full frame so I'm still adding lenses Here's some that I'm interested in as of right now....
1. Probably the main contender is the Clik Elite Pro Express. Watch the video in the bottom right as the guy goes through the pack, really cool! Also, about 2 lbs lighter than some of the others
2. Tenba Shootout Backpack Here's the item on BH Photo. You can click "item demo" and it has a video breakdown of the pack.......quality looks amazing!
3. Tamrac Expedition 7X Big fan of the overall quality of a tamrac as noticed in my adventure 9 pack that I own. This one looks nice. Also check out the "item demo" for a video on this one.....
4. LowePro Pro Runner 350
I'm open to any suggestions and there's some that are just hard to find to find info on like pelican products and think tank. Knowledge is power when buying anything online! Thanks for all of your help
