I have been looking at backpacks for some time now and even though i cant aford one I am looking for compi packs for laptops.

I own canon eos350d, 2 lenses, batterygrip, flash, stuffthingy and my laptop is 14"x1,5"x10"

im just wondering what backpacks are best. the ones i kinda have looked at most are Tamrac adventure 9 and Lowepro Compurover aw.

but i am open to anything realy, just wanna know how much i have to sell/save up to aford:p hehe

This thread has some information. My post (second to last) talks about why the Tamrac Adventure 9 bag is my best bag.

FWIW, my loyalty lies with Tamrac. I like their bags, they hold everything well, and my Expedition 5 is the most comfortable bag I've ever owned. I know they make some that will hold laptops.

On the other hand, I am not a fan of Lowepro. I've seen a couple start to show wear and tear while still "young" and simply don't find them as overall "good".

I'm a Tamrac girl. Have 2 of their backpacks and bunches of add-on stuff. I like the add-ons best. It really helps to keep me organized and believe me, I need to stay organized!!

Backpacks are good for all your gear, but a messenger style bag is good if you tend to change lenses a lot.

If you can, try all the bags you are thinking of purchasing.

thank you all for your advise

i think i willgo for the tamrac then. i go on long walks and rambles somtimes around capital and afcourse here at home i walk my dog often and the side bag is just to much to handle with a eager dog on a leash...

also she likes walking sirckles around me so she has goten the leash around my bag witch has a very weak looking strap buckles.. to me.

and with me wanting a waist leash so i can walk with hands free i cant have the litle side bag anymore.

I might be selling a few beadet items soon, on the gay pride this weekend i got an order from a norwegian guy for 4 candlerings.. im giving him discount couse he was a part of my friends group there and we had great time together it still will bring me 120 dollars, should be enough for tamrack adventure 9 on ebay?

edit: I dont change lenses alot and i dont know photographers around here so im not sure where i could try them
plush i live in middle of nowere.. or well.. near geysir, Iceland :p
