I currently have a lowepro orion trekker II. I like that it has a separate section for odds and sods, mainly so I can carry bits when I'm out and about with my kids.

but I find the compartment at the bottom is a little small when I'm carrying anythign other than my 50D + 24-105 + 85 1.8. I can just about squeeze a 50D+70-200f4 in there by removing most of the dividers, but nothing else.

I'd like something that would let me carry the 50D+70-200f4, OR 50D + 100-400, and still have space for my 24-105 and 85 1.8.

I've looked at the slingshot AW200 which seems a little narrow across the back. should take the 24-105 but I don't think it'll take anything much longer. is the AW300 much wider?

the daypacks seem similar to my orion trekker - some space above, but again the camera section seems small.

The big lowepro backpacks probably have enough space for the gear, but nothing for personal space.


any suggestions?

fastpack looks interesting. Looks almost like my orion trekker but with side access. so it still has a top section for knicknacks (SP?). not sure about the storage though, might be a similar problem to my current bag.

I have the Tamrac Adventure 9. It holds my gripped 30D with Tammy 17-50 mounted plus my 70-200 28.IS, 85 1.8 and 430 EX. Also holds my Laptop in a seperate section plus a third section holds all of my cables, LT power supply and mouse with room left over for a snack or small jacket.

I have used and really liked the Lowepro Fastpack 300 for carrying a similar gear list. Sounds to me it would cover your needs.

I just purchased a Think Tank Change Up, and am in love. Its not big enough for what you want to do with any flexibility -- but one of their slightly larger bags might work. Check the Urban Disguise.

I carried this thing for 14 hours a day for a straight week with no complaints -- think tank really does make good stuff!
