I have a Lowepro Fastpack 250 that I have outgrown. I really like the Crumpler line (love the 6MDH, 7MDH, and Industry Disgrace I've had), so I am looking at getting the Crumpler Karachi Outpost...but I am unsure if I need the Medium or Large. My primary setup would include:
Canon EOS 7D
Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM + Hood
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM + Hood
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM + Hood
Canon 430EX II
+ Accessories (Batteries, Tripod Collar Ring, CPL, Charger, Blower, Lens Paper, Lens Pen, Caps, etc.)
The part I am worried about is that the Medium will not fit the lenses with the hoods attached. However, I'd like to keep the footprint as small as possible so I don't look like I'm hiking.
As more of a secondary question, if the Medium fits everything above with the hoods, will I also be able to fit my Canon EOS T1i + 18-55 IS + hood?...Or will this throw me into the Large for sure? Should I just get the Large to grow into (I'm considering getting the Canon 100L Macro and/or Sigma 10mm Fisheye)?
I was hoping to get some feedback from members that have had a first hand experience with this backpack. If anyone has pictures, even better! I'm also open to other suggestions. Thanks ahead for any help.
