    Default Need a good backpack? Reasonably priced?

    I recently bought a backpack over the internet, was a steal. It is made in China (go figure), and it is a knock off of a Lowepro AW300, I think. So far I really think this backpack is worth considering, since it has ample space for 2 bodies (one with grip) 2 longish lenses (a 70-200 and a 300), a medium lens, and 3 to 4 small lenses. It has pockets for filters, cards, and has a compartment for a lap top. On the back it has a flip down holder for a tripod, that and the flimsy elastic chords are the only drawback on the pack. However, it does serve the purpose if needed. Only thing is you must take the tripod off before you can access your gear. It also comes with a bottom mounted hidden rain cover. So far I have really enjoyed this pack, it holds everything I need and then some. Quality is not bad, and the harness for the shoulders is nice and versitile. Here are some images of this pack. I got it on eBay for under 40.00 US, including shipping.

    If this works well it's a steal - I would be VERY surprised if the real bag wasn't also made in the same country....and the quality of the real bag is fab. (I don't have that one but i did check it out)

    Yeah, I thought I'd share this in this forum. Once in a while one runs into something good and afforadble, and I think it is nice to tell others about this, so they can enjoy it if they have a need for it. Think I am going to do one about the GPS I bought as well ....

    yes - please DO post the GPS one and this might be a good idea for a forum category called Sweet photo deals-hmm.

    I could make it so that you need x posts to post in that forum.
