These are good suggestions. Would also recommend the Mindshift Horizon; review here. Love the rotational belt pack

As much as I love that backpack, it won't work for several larger lenses.

Thanks, I'll definitely be taking a look at them. The Peak Design Travel pack doesn't interest me for this because it's too large. The first 4 I'll take a closer look at.
I figured it would be too big. I love owning and using it, but as I wrote, even at 35 liters it's still pretty big.

Good luck with your search!

Thanks, I'll check it out. It definitely looks promising. What are the differences between this and the Manfrotto Manhattan 50?
From what I see, the Manhattan 50 has the opening on the back (so you have to flip it towards your front to take the camera out) and has a bit more space for camera stuff. The Metropolitan looks a bit more like a "typical" backpack, with the laptop closer to your bag. I unfortunately haven't tried either, but figured the Metropolitan would check all your boxes and there should be a good reason it's a best seller .


For reference, when I'm hiking I use a Decathlon 20L trail backpack. However, I assume that it has nothing to do with what you need. I don't bring the computer to work, to walk around the city (it's a 17.3" gaming laptop so "light" is it not* ) or when I carry the camera**, so I cannot really help much more...

*And the 180 W charger is like a cinder block. Made of lead.
** The thought of carrying the laptop and the K-1 in the same backpack is making my entire spine scream

Sometimes I carry my 17.3 inch laptop, charger, K-1 and K-70 with five lenses, two flashes and triggers and a lightstand on my back with tripod in my hand. Up to 10 km around the city is acceptable but heavy

An interesting list. I confess I have not seen the Thule bags in person, some people like them a lot. I look forward to your analysis.
