photographers backpack

Can you recommend or suggest products roughly meeting the following requirements please?

* medium sized (day tripper, photo walks)
* rugged and waterproof/water resistant, light
* flexible padding and harness for at least one DSLR and three flash/lens/other accessory
* straps or other support for a full-sized ie. 30inch tripod
* some sort of rigid support so it tends to stay upright when placed on its bottom on the floor
* a system for easy or rapid access to gear inside the bag but which is also secure from grab-and-run theives

What do you think?

Hello,

The black Photo Sport 200 AW Backpack from Lowepro is a lightweight pack designed for heavyweight outdoor action and manufactured to handle a rugged trail race, mountain bike outing or photo trek up a local peak. The Photo Sport 200 can instantly become a shooter's pack. Quickly rotate pack to the front, unzip the pocket, access your camera that is stored in shooting position, pull it out, get the shot, stuff it back inside and you're back on the trail ready to tackle the next pitch. For the hiking part, multiple attachment points on the pack permit you to secure everything from ski poles to jackets, hats, cell phones, keys or a decent-sized pack of trail mix to keep you going.

The water-resistant olive K4L v2 35L Adventure Backpack from Naneu has a capacity of 35 liters and holds a DSLR, two to three lenses, and a flash inside a removable camera pod in the base compartment. Additionally, it accommodates a 17" laptop inside a padded compartment at the back.

The DKS-25 large black Photo/SLR/Laptop Sling Backpack from Vivitar is a triple threat when it comes to buying this type of pack. It can be worn in three different ways and therefore serves as a durable pack for both transport and shooting. It's made from tough Oxford Fabric 600D.

No worries Chuck. This item looks like a great fit to my needs: Naneu K4L v2 35L Adventure Backpack (Olive) K4LV002 B&H Photo. The cability to handle a fullsize tripod was decisive for me, not so much swiftly pulling my gear out or packing in an extra load of stuff.

A great tripod may be essential and I could be journeying for hours before setting up at location. Leaving the tripod in its case and slinging it with any other bag is awkward and unbalancing. But if the tripod were attached securely and loaded evenly on the knapsack then both hands could be free for handling my camera or other gear.

Thanks again for some great ideas. As many can relate I am sure, it is hard wading through thousands of products online, and it is nice when somone like Chuck can help you 'cut to the chase'.
