Lowepro Fastpack BP 250 AW II £120, $130
Inside the subtly styled Fastpack there’s a classic split layout with a camera section in the lower half. It’s roomy enough to swallow a D7200 and two or three relatively small lenses. At the back you’ll find a slot for a 15-inch laptop and a tablet, too, but this does slightly restrict the depth of the camera compartment and the upper space for your daily essentials. At least your tripod can accompany you, slotting into a side pocket that doubles as a bottle holder.
Getting at your Nikon on the go is easy thanks to a side-opening flap which can also be peeled back further to access the front compartments. Padded mesh back panels, thick shoulder straps and a removable hip belt all keep you comfortable, while a separate rain cover gives your gear added protection in poor weather.
Simple but effective: the camera section can be accessed from the side via a side-opening flap
