Need a reco for a small backpack that will hold a 60d and a couple of lenses. Think taking to the zoo or park.

Thanks!

LowePro Has a ton of options and are high quality. I use the old Rover AW II and hope it never wears out!

I like my Lowepro Urban Photo Sling (external link). Granted its a sling vs. true backpack, but for only two lenses, a backpack would be very small.

My GF has an older Tamarac Expedition 3 that would probably fit your needs for a true backpack.

F-stop Guru will do it well.

The OP said "Small" backpack! :)

I would highly recommend having a look at the ThinkTank Turnstyle 20, I picked one up to add to my collection of 10 ThinkTank bags on the weekend and it is A+++

It's all relative... I consider the Guru fairly small. :) The f-stop Kenti might be a bit smaller and better in this instance.

I am very happy with my LowePro 102AW: http://www.amazon.com …1&keywords=lowe​pro+102+aw (external link)
It's a small sling type bag and it just fits my 60D with the 18-135mm lens attached. I can also carry my 50mm and Sigma10-20mm lenses with no problem. I could probably get my 55-250mm lens in there if I wanted to. It's the perfect bag for me because I don't like bulky backpacks. Got mine from Unique Photo for about 50 bucks.

+ 1 on the ThinkTank Turnstyle 20. Not really a backpack but outstanding sling style bag.

lenses come in all different sizes. Knowing that "couple of lenses" might help.

But with no information I'll say the Lowepro Hatchback 22L. I can fit a 60D, sigma 50-150 OS, and sigma 18-35 in it (neither lens attached)

I have it. It is good looking pack with somewhat easy access. However, it isn't comfortable for me to wear. Waist belt doesn't support the weight and backpanel isn't too comfortable either. I like F-stop gear's Guru with small or medium ICU for 2 lens setup. I also like Flipside.

This (external link) for the body w/ mounted lens from Tamrac.

They used to come with lens pouches that attach to the side in a very secure double velcro attachment. It's a modular system. Thinktank (external link)has the lens pouches though. They sell flash bags too.

So; 1 camera bag with 2 side pouches. Top and front have pockets for stuff like batteries, cards, etc.

They come in varying sizes - I have a short an long but usually opt for the long one (fits 5Dii + 70-200 f2.8 IS mounted).

Since 2 lenses usually does it for me, I usually use one of the side pouch lens pouches for a water bottle.

One more option (in case your head isn't spinning fast enough already :-)), which I've found to be one of the most comfortable packs I've ever worn. A bit pricey unless you can find a sale.

+1 I love this pack.

I used it on a 5 day trip to NYC. I took my 5D2, 24-105, Rokinon 14mm, a bunch of filters a beanbag and a travel tripod. It all fit and was very comfortable to carry for the whole trip. Plus it's nice that you can sling it around to your chest and open it to change lenses etc. It rests in the horizontal position while in front of you and nicely centered on your back when walking.
