Hi, I am planning to buy one of these packs. Wich one would you recommend for the following equipment? I have a larger pack (Flipside 500 AW) to fit every bit of gear I have. But I am planning to get a backpack to hold smaller amount of gear for longer trips.

Canon 6D
Canon 1D mark III

Canon 24-70 f/4L IS
Sigma 35 f/1.4 Art
Samyang 14mm f/2.8
And maybe Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS Macro

Should I buy 350 or 450 version?

Looks like the 350AW will work for you unless you plan to add a long lens in the future.

What do you plan on connecting to the webbing? Because if the answer is nothing then you might want a bag without the webbing to save weight.

Probably tripod and stuff. I like the webbing idea and the multipoint access is a huge bonus. 350 looks very shallow? I cant imagine the 1D in there.

I'd say you would need to get the 450AW if you want to have two camera bodies. You can probably fit everything in the 350 but it will be a tight fit.

I have the 350AW for my 6D. The 6D + a 24-70 and a smaller lens will fit in the lower area of the pack.
I don't think you will be able to fit the 1D with a lens on in the 350AW. It is somewhat tight to get the 6D out of the side pocket as it is.

That said I do love the 350AW pack. The webbing is great for connecting the tripod or small lenscases. Or to just connect your jacket when you don't want to wear it.
The 350AW is great as a daypack for a camera body with one or two extra lenses.
I am currently looking for a smaller shoulder bag that can be attached to the outside for when I travel. Just to have it like an extra pocket for when I am travelling that can be taken off later and used separately if needed.
