    Lowepro - Fastpak 250
    Crumpler - Sinking Barge

    I recommend both, I have used them extensively. What's often in my back? The Fastpak.

    Merry Christmas! :)

    Hi,

    First of all, congratulations on your new acquisition. Second, you have to determine what stuff are you going to acquire in the future and if these will fit in the bag that you have in mind.

    I have used both Crumpler and Lowepro extensively and both are good choices. It is more getting the right "sized" bag for your use. You may browse the websites of both Lowepro and Crumpler to have a better idea of the features the bags have.

    One thing I like about Lowepro's is the built-in All Weather cover in most the bags they make. It will come in handy when you are outdoors. It just gives you that peace of mind that your gear is protected from the elements.

    HTH!

    I find that Lowepro bags offer one of the best protection for your gear.

    I also prefer having my camera and laptop on seperate bags, so that I have a choice if I only need to bring either.

    Try Crumpler. I know some people frown at it for being a tad bit expensive and a bit too loud, but I find it really useful (with all its pockets and all) as well as stylish.

    I got a 5 Million Dollar Home for my DSLR a couple of weeks ago, and I haven't regretted it. :)

    I use this:

    Fits the MB and camera (and some other accessories) well. Cheaper than the Lowepros as well.

    Hi raw_knee,

    I don't know if I am the only one who doesn't know it... but what bag is that? It looks really nice and "stealthy". Not an obvious camera / laptop bag.

    Thanks.

    It's a PAQ backpack. I got it from MediaQuest's SM Megamall branch last October.

    The front is your typical SLR bag where there are divisions for the camera, lenses, and other accessories. It has two openings in the front: one that goes all the way to the bottom of the bag, and an extra opening that goes halfway so you can easily access the camera. At the rear part is a separate compartment for the laptop.

    It also has a 'shroud' hidden at a pocket near the bottom of the bag that you can use to cover the bag if it rains.

    My friend got a PAQ from Megamall last week, it's good for a starter bag, and for when you need to put it in a larger bag for travelling. But I use a Lowe Pro Slingshot 100AW.

    Well, I can tell you what is NOT a good bag to buy - a Pelican case.

    I bought a Pelican case for my camera for a shoot that I was going to do on a fishing. I figured OK ang waterproofing at protection niya. Yes, its waterproof alright - even if you drop it overboard. But to OPEN the case, your camera gets wet anyway due to its "suitecase" style construction. I ended up keeping the camera outside just because of the hassle of putting the camera into the Pelican case, thus defeating its purpose.

    Not only that, it bangs against you when you lug it on flights. Ang sakit sa katawan.

    Pelican hardcase has its use, but not for bringing on a shoot. For that you need a BAG, hence the point of this thread.

    FWIW
