Ok, while I like my Velocity I found out the Fastpack 200 was bigger than I thought and I immediately wanted to sell my Velocity 8x for it. Well...then I looked at the Flipside 200 again and still love it. Not sure about the whole opening from the back. Not sure how hard it'd be and what not. Now Tamrac as the Aero Speed Pack but I'm not sure I see that much of an advantage over the Faspack. I don't need a laptop and a key concern is whether I can fit my camera 70-200 attached.

I'm just not finding any reviews on the Fastpack 200. Everyone seems to have the 250 and 350. So please!!!! Some reviews! I know people have this bag but no one seems to post reviews so anything, thanks!

-Nate

I went to camera store to check them out a while ago. The 200 and 250 are exactly the same size in the camera compartment, just the 250 has laptop slot and more straps. So from 250 review, you should have a pretty good idea of the 200 size.

I use the Fastpack 200 and it is as the previous poster said, the same size as the 250. The 200 will easily accommodate your gear, and is much easier to get in and out of than the Flipside. I was torn between the Flipside and the Fastpack. The Fastpack won out for its size and versastility. The Flipside has a tripod holder which is not on the Fastpack. However, the Fastpack has an area for gear or general purpose stuff on top, whereas the Flipside is just camera gear.

^Yeah, I check them out today. If the 200 is the same size as the 250 (which Lowepro shows different) then I guess the Fastpack is out because that's huge. It's bigger than the Slingshot 200.

I just added a lowepro sling 300 to my arsonal and am very pleased with it but the 300 is for a pro body .

I think the 200 and 250 fit the smaller bodies. Check those out before you make a decision.

its pretty slick and easy to get into. On the 300 I can carry my 100-400 and 70-200 2.8 IS as well as 3 other smaller lenses and a 1d3.

The 350 carries a laptop aswell but I amagine its pretty heavy with all that stuff in it

The 250 is of course larger! It has to accommodate a laptop too. The 200 HOLDS as much camera gear as the 250... but it is bigger than the slingshot. The slingshots are tiny in comparison.
