    So I'm after a bag to replace as my main bag over my Lowe-pro minitrekker bag. Something that is more heavy duty in construction and support/comfort for when carrying a heavier gear - plus its regular storage compartment gets a bit full when trying to get waterproofs and lunch in their at the same time.

    So I'm in the market for something larger and whilst I know that trying out is the best approach I'd like some idea of what options on the market might be the best to consider. At the moment I've my eyes on:

    National Geographic Earth Explorer Backpack - Large
    Lowepro Pro Trekker 600 AW

    However I'm open to other suggestions.

    As an idea of the kind of gear I want to transport I currently carry:
    Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2 - 2*Teleconvertr - MPE 65mm macro
    Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro - 70mm f2.8 macro - 1.4 teleconverter
    Tokina 35mm macro
    Canon 580EX2 - Mt-24ex
    lunch - drink - waterproofs - other stuff

    though I'm also after a bag that can easily take additions to that list - namely 300mm f2.8 so that the bag remains usable in the future.

    I've just bought/updated my camera bag with a Lowepro Pro Trekker 400aw. It holds all the gear plus the waterproofs and lunch. Had it a few weeks and so far v. glad I bought it. The 300 version was a bit too small and the 600 far to large for my requirements.
