p.1 #1 · Split between choosing two different camera backpacks.(Suggestions welcome)


I am split between two backpacks:

The Case Logic SLRC-206: http://www.amazon.com/Case-Logic-SLRC-206-15-4-Inch-Backpack/dp/B002DW99H8/ref=pd_sim_a_1

And the Case Logic DCB-309: http://www.amazon.com/Case-Logic-DCB-309-Camera-Backpack/dp/B004JMZPK0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1350759999&sr=8-1&keywords=dcb+309

I am still in high school so this would also help me carry my everyday school stuff, but the camera bag I have now is just too bulky with my normal backpack. I would bring my camera to school to shoot the after school sports and going with my friend to the woods behind my school for nature shots. The gear that I have is a Canon T2i, Canon kit lens, Canon 70-200mm f/4 and a Canon 200mm f/2.8. This will be the rest of my summer job money and it is protecting the gear that I bought with the rest of the money, so it needs to be able to last and protect my gear very well. Anyone have either of these or know any pros/cons would be helpful. Or if anyone has any other suggestions would help. Need to keep i under $100 but could scrape up a few bucks if I need to.

I'd go with something like a Swiss Army backpack and a camera insert to hold your gear. You'll have more room, greater flexibility and should come in under $100.

Peace,

Todd

I have the 206 and it's great for my needs. I have a Nikon D700, Nikon 300 F/4 AF-S, Sigma 12-24, Nikon 28-105, SB-700, a lot of filters, cords, caps, remotes, cards etc.. and all fit in this bag comfortably and secure. It also holds my 15.6" laptop, Sony tablet and a tripod... However, I am not sure it would fit a lot of books & other stuff for your classes.

Check out this excellent review which gives you an idea what to expect:

It's comfortable, durable and looks very good. It's a bit bulky and I miss the chest strap but no deal breaker for me
