So, what do you reckon, what's the most compact backpack which can hold 20D, 70-200L4, 17-40 couple of primes AND a 12-14 inch laptop computer?

At the moment I'm using Lowepro Slingshot 200 which can hold all 20d, 17-40, 70-200l4, 50f1.4 and 85f1.8. I'm planning to get a small laptop for travelling so the max size is 14.1".

I've checked Computrekker AW (too massive) and Adventure 9 (more or less the same) and other Lowepros backpacks (too pricey). Are there any other reasonable alternatives?

Thanks for any assistance :D

Extra batteries / Rocket blower / Small tripod :rolleyes:

Check out the National Geographic Medium Backpack thread, there's lots of reviews and opinions on it. I love mine, it fits all my gear and still room to spare, if I needed it. I just don't have things packed properly right now. It is a very solidly built backpack. I'm in love with it.

I have the Lowerpro CompuDayPack. It holds a 350D with EF-S 17-55 F2.8 IS USM attached, EF 70-300 IS USM, EF-S 10-22 USM and a 14" laptop in the laptop compartment. It has a compartment on top that I use for batteries, CF cards, hoods, lunch, etc
