Medium-sized backpack

I am looking at getting myself a decent backpack for carrying my camera gear around with me on long walks around the countryside. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what bag I should buy. If anyone has any second hand bags for sale I would love to buy one off you for around 30-50
I need the bag to be able to accommodate 1 body with 70-200 sized lens, a second body, 3-4 lenses and all the little accessories needed ( filters, cable release, cards, batteries) it also needs to hold a small tripod.
Any advice is appreciated.

Re: Medium-sized backpack

For that kit the medium size like the Lowepro Mini Trekker will be far too small. My one will only take 1 body, an 80-200 and if you are lucky a couple of other lenses.

Check out the Lowepro Pro Trekker range (or other brand equivalents). They have several sizes and one will probably do you OK.

Tamrac, Think Tank and other makers will make suitable sizes and it will be worth getting one that has a rain cover built-in. The Lowepro range ones are designated AW for all weather.

I doubt you will find one in your price bracket though.

I recently sold a Lowepro POro Trekker 600 AW that you can see the size of here

Re: Medium-sized backpack

How much did you pay for the lowepro mini trekker. And where from.I have seen my mates one and it looks about right for the kit I use on a daily basis. I've used lowepro in the past and trust that the bags will be good quality.
Thanks for the help.
If you want to sell yours I would happily make you an offer.

Re: Medium-sized backpack

Won't be selling mine. I bought it from a shop as I need it quickly so paid top dollar for it, but if you look on line you will see them for around 60 - 70.

MPB have a used one for under 24

www.mpbphotographic.co.uk - Used Secondhand Lowepro Micro Trekker 100

You will not get the kit you listed in it though.

There are reviews here

Re: Medium-sized backpack

Hello. I use a regular backpack called High Sierra Scrimmage and it fits me great. It is able to carry everything necessary while it is very convenient and a good looking one
