lOWEpRO TRANSIT BACK PACK 350aw
Transforms easily from a photo backpack to a split photo/daypack
Backpack > £100, $93 > www.lowepro.com The Transit is designed to work equally well as a full photo backpack or as split photo/ daypack. The latter is the more versatile and usable configuration: after pivoting the bag on its left shoulder strap, a side-access flap enables you to grab a camera and lens.
In split configuration, there’s enough space for up to four additional lenses and a flashgun in the main compartment. The separate upper compartment is a generous size, and the rear section will hold a laptop of up to 15 inches.
Upgrade if you own...
a backpack that’s too small, or too flimsy to protect your kit.

Like the Lowepro this backpack can be used as a split photo/daypack or full photo backpack, though it’s not as easy to use in full photo mode.
