I'm currently stuck between these 3 choices. Which of these bags can better fit a EOS 450D, 18-55mm, 50mm, 55-250mm and 430EXII. I want a bag that is not too big, but enough to store all my gears. And also, it should allow me easy access to the gears. So which is more suitable for me?




Did i mention i'm only 15? 8) I don't want a bag that is bigger than me. :P

If you want the bag to last, don't get the slingshot series. I've got the slingshot 100, and when it's got my d80, 70-300VR,18-70dx,35mm f2d and sb-800 flash in it, I find that that's too much weight to sling over one shoulder. Get a two strap bag, you'll thank me in a year.

I just bought the flipside 200 for my gear and am very impressed. I like it alot. For the gear you have the 300 would fit it great. Here is a video review of it that I found. Helped me decide what to get.

The Flipside series of bags are great.

I ended upgrading from the 300 to the 400. I needed just that little bit of extra room, and the all weather cover and the sturdier waist belt is a nice bonus too

Have you considered the Inversed 200 AW? Should store all you gears while allowing easy access.

I think the method of getting the gear out using the flipside is a little awkward, and when you're taking it out, there's chance that someone can come near and take one of your lens away.


I'm now considering the fastpack 250.

Really??? I'm finding it really easy and convenient to get gear out. having the bag swung around to the front makes a great platform for changing lenses too.

Seriously, after walking around the other weekend with my Flipside for 8 hours, i'm thinking it's one of the better investments i've made.

i just ordered the flipside 300. I really wish it had the all weather cover like the 400, but oh well. i'll just carry a cheap poncho.

one question for those with the flipsides. Do any of you use the tripod holder? and if so, which tripods/sizes do you use. I dont have the bag yet (being shipped) and i'll be looking to get a tripod soon after. I'm about 6' tall, so i'd like a tripod that'll be fairly easy to use, and will fold up to be pretty compact to attach to the bag. know what i mean.

any recommendations would be great.
