 Post subject: bag or backpack help.
PostPosted: Wed Apr 15, 2009 12:25 am 
I'm about 5'10" (i probably mixed the ' up with "), I plan on getting the Canon Rebel XS or T1i.. i wonn't be getting a second lens or anything like that for a while.. The Faspack 250 looks to be pretty dang good, any one else got any reccommendations?

If all you are going to have is a body with the kit lens, then any bag will do the trick. If you value being able to quickly pull the camera out to shoot a photo, the Fastpack is probably not the way to go. I'd look more into a shoulder bag or the Slingshot. Given that you won't be carrying much, a backpack to spread the weight evenly out might not be necessary. My 2 cents! :)

true enough, but having the ability to expand is helpful.

Don't forget a TLZ bag (top loading zoom). It's small, convenient, and makes for quick access. I've bought the Lowepro TLZ 2 (it's bigger), but the TLZ should fit a crop factor DSLR + kitlens just fine.

would it work with biking, the fastpacks seem to be great for that... don't know if i want the fastpack 200 or 250 in this case.. still looking for sugestions, i can get a 250 for 90 and a 200 for 100 CAD. :/
I've been looking at the crumpler sinking barge too.. I w ant my backpack mainly for biking so i have to be able to get things like food and drinks (drinks in a water proof bag or something like that) clothes would be nice as well.)

You can't fit a water bottle in there, sadly. The fastpack would be your way to go then.
