    I've been looking at the tamrac and lawepro ones - both of which have a good selection, I was interested in which ones people are using if any at all.

    Cheers

    I dont carry around too much stuff (D50, 50-200mm and a kit lens, flash, and all the other little stuff) so I got the Lowepro Fastpack 100 for like 50 bucks. Its very nice haven't had a problem. There are larger versions of this if you have more stuff than I but they should have the same performance as the one I have.

    Tamrac are the same basic quality as LowePro, but I have the LowePro mini-Trekker AW and could not be happier.

    lowepro seems o be the choice amongst the folks i've asked so far, and everyone seems happy and the do look and feel good backpacks - i'm almost swayed, just need to look about a bit at the different ones.

    I've got two Lowepro's and am quite content with them. My next bag is likely to be a Lowepro as well.

    Tamrac Adventure 7. Plenty of room for lenses and other stuff for a very low price. Great for hiking, biking, or any kind of traveling.

    Lowepro Slingshot 200AW i like the size im able to fit a 50mm 18-70 mounted on D70, SB-600, a Wide angle and a 55-200 VR with space in other compart ments for charger, etc. I will be looking at the mini trekker when i get some more gear, but im sure i will be staying with lowepro.

    I have a lowepro micro trekker 200, and although I don't own quite enough gear to fill it, I decided on this one because I rent big lenses from time to time, and also, if I'm going to drop a significant amount of money on a bag, I don't want to outgrow it too quickly.

    I was looking into this a little earlier today and found several rave reviews of the Kata R-103. It's a little pricey, but apparently worth the look.
