    Ive narrowed it down to these two but unsure which one to get.
    Does anyone have any of these and what do you think of them if you do?
    Is this a good price to pay? Both 100 pound.

    Also if you think these are naff is there anything else you recommend?
    Budget of 100pounds, maybe a little over.
    Needs to beable to hold a laptop as well.
    I would of liked something with a more robust and supportive lumbar and sternum straps really.

    -Thanks for any info!

    Pretty expensive, no?

    I got a Lowepro Fastpack 250 for 60 bucks...
    Holds a body with 70-200, and 4 lenses or flashes...plus a decent amount of whatever you want in the top pack, memory card holder, and a laptop sleeve. Real good padding too.

    How's that?

    Pretty decent inside..

    The only downside I've found is that you can't fit your camera in the bag with your long lens at the same time, unless they are attached to each other. (well...you can...just it would probably fall out when you opened it...

    For some scale...that's a 70-200 F4L, and a 430EX in there.
