    Hi guys,

    I´m looking for a backpack that is not too big that may acomodate some photography equipment, a 7" tablet and some personal items (keys, cellphone, wallet, etc). So far the only one that I really like is the Lowepro fastpack 150 AW (the 100 AW cannot fit the tablet and the 200 AW is a bit bigger than I´d like).

    These are the things I´ll probably be taking on the backpack:
    - NEX5 (nex-5N soon, I hope)
    - 16mm 2.8 pancake
    - CCTV 35mm f1.7
    - Sigma 70-300mm macro.
    - 2 batts
    - 1 charger
    - About 3 SD cardas
    - A 7 inch tablet

    It would be nice if I could also fit on it a gorilla pod, my wallet, keys, a small headphone and my cellphone. But like I said I don´t really want a big backpack though.

    What other options do I have other than the Lowepro fastpack 150 AW ?

    For anyone who has the same dilemma, I ended up getting the Kata 3n1-11. It is THE perfect bag for me. It is small enough, it has a lateral compartment for a bunch of NEX batts, another lateral one for a bunch a microphone and some other stuff, a main bottom compartment for the NEX camera with the zoom kit plus more 4 spots for different lenses (I take the 16mm 2.8, the kit lens, the 23mm 1.7). It has an upper compartment where you can place keys, cables, a cellphone, a walled, glasses, papers, etc. An lastly it has a dedicated padded compartment for a tablet up to 10 inches! It also comes with water resistant protective cape.

    I took this baby on a trip to Buenos Aires (4 days walking around the city) and I can say it´s an awesome super comfortable bag.

    Good backpack. I've had a Kata 3N1-20 for years from when we used to tote around a Canon DSLR and a few lenses. Very comfortable and easy to configure however you like it, since you can make it a backpack, a slingpack, a cross ("X") sling, and perhaps most rare of all, a left handed sling.

    I still have it actually, though it's mainly become the storage home of my m43 gear. Perhaps it's time to clean house and put it up for sale...
