K1 mkii with grip in top of Lowepro Protactic 350 or 450

I am wondering if anyone owns either of these bags? I would like a bag that I can acess my K1 ii with grip from the top of the bag. I like the size of the 350 but from the youtube videos I have seen it looks like a very tight fit in the top compartment of the bag. From my research so far it looks like the 450 is the more popular model.

I have a 70 to 210, 70 to 150 and some primes all legacy glass. It looks to me like I could grow into the 450 but I would like to hear from someone who owns one.

The 350 will be too small..Not deep enough. You need the ProTactic 450. Best bag there is. Have 2 of it. And its deep enough to fit and have quick access for K-1II with grip on

I just received the Protactic 350 and configured the inside for two K3's - agree with Kenspo, the 350 would be two small for the K1+grip for top access, my K3 fits but it is very 'snug'. Fabulous backpack mind.
