Suggestions for good laptop/dslr bags

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ey All

So i find myself going to be using my camera alot more.
But currently none of my bags really do fit both my 13" laptop and DSLR well with room to spare. So I carry around a big duffle bag with everything to cut down on septate bags. Anyone happen to know any good light backpacks or messenger bags that are designed for both?

- Well Built
- Under 100
- Configurable Dividers would be great
- DSLR Body + Space for len(s)
- 13" Laptop + Small Charger

I have not personally tried it, but I have considered buying this bag for myself, depending on the size of your dSLR, it might be a good thing or a bad one. Have a look here, someone is selling one in Canada, it is used, but seems to be in decent conditions: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/crumpler-local-identity-80-a-1304257/

For under 100? That's kind of a stretch I would imagine, if you want a quality bag to use as a messenger/camera I would check out a Timbuk2, Chrome or Incase. You can always get a camera insert (I believe Domke makes them) to fit inside a regular messenger bag as well.

It might be a bit over your range, but I'm a real fan of my ThinkTank Urban Disguise 50

I just bought a Manfrotto Veloce V backpack. Stylish and subtle.
Case Logics SLRC-206 is also a good option.

Liking the Manfrotto Veloce V quite a bit.
Tripod, DSLR, and Laptop all inside with space to spare.

Tripod holder isn't all too needed but would be nice. I DIY a messenger bag strap onto my Tripod currently.

I have the fastpack 350 AW by Lowepro I was able to get it "used" aka returned from Amazon warehouse for under $100 its great, holds up to a 15" laptop, full size camera body and telephoto lens with room for 2 more lenses and a flash. It also has a large upper compartment for cables, chargers, accesories, and a tripod holder.

Got my Veloce V in bungee cord on Tuesday and I love it. It's not the biggest; but it holds my camera, 3 lenses, an air blower, and even a compact tripod.

My 055xprob won't fit inside of course, but it will strap to the outside.

It's stylish and comfortable as well smile.gif

Edit: Forgot some of the bad points. Most of the dividers move, but not all of them. Materials aren't the greatest, but I'm also kinda picky. It's also not quick to access because the straps often get in the way of the zipper. All in all, I'm still very happy.

Any recommendations for bags that can fit 1 body and 2-3 lenses? As well as being able to fit a 15 inch thin laptop.
