    Well...cause my Dads to stubbon, I have to post for him.

    He wants a lowepro backpack, which can hold two SLR's (D70, and F75) both with the wide angle lens.

    he can fit it all in my mini trekker classic, but I told him not to get one because of the limitations of the Mini Trekker Classic, and that he should spend a bit more and get something with alot more features.
    What do you think guys?

    I'm using a Lowepro Magnum AV. This is a over the shoulder case instead of the backpack. I prefered this style over the backpack.

    Heres a list of what I carry in it.
    Nikon D70
    Nikon N90s w/mb-10 and MF-26
    Nikon SB-800
    Nikon 105mm f/2.8D micro
    Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED DX AF-S
    Nikon 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF
    Nikon 35-70mm f/2.8D
    Nikon 35mm f/2.0D
    Nikon 50 mm f/1.4D
    Nikon 60mm f/2.8D micro
    Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5.6D ED
    Nikon 85mm f/1.8D
    Sekonic L-358
    Plus filters, lens cleaning kit, and rechargable battery kit.
    I usually keep one lens on the D70 and no lens on the N90s, however I could easily.

    I think if he has lots of stuff then either this case or the backpacks are the only way to go.

    Just do a search here:

    Why don't you go down to your local Jessops too? I've always found that they've got a pretty good selection of bags and packs.

    If he only has two bodies and a couple of lenses, what's the limitation with the Mini Trekker Classic? I carry a lot more gear than that in mine and don't find it to have any limitations for my needs.

    I bought a mini trekker classic before a 3 week road trip through 4 states and it was great because it fit all my gear and it was pretty compact to fit in a van with 8 people and all their crap.

    I carried in mine:
    D70, N80 3 lenses a flash (SB800) a holga and all the other accesories. Its suprisingly roomy.
