I'm looking for a Back Pack that will hold my Sigma 150-500mm lens inside it when not attached to my Canon 7D, plus another camera with smaller lens attached to it like a 70-300mm.
Must hold other lenses and stuff as well.
Off course, if it can hold the lens with Battery grip and Canon 7D attached, then all the better.
I'm only 5ft 4in so it must be able to sit on me back comfortably.
I have a Back Pack but once the 150-500mm lens is inside I can't get another camera in there.

Any good, Dennis?
Golly, you were Quick. lol
Thanks for the link. I use to own the Bigger one of those a Long time ago, but sold it because I got fed up of Back Packs. I put them on ground and walk off without it. LOL
The lens is 10 n half inches long with the hood on proper. So we'll call it 12" That pack looks like it will take it. It even looks as if it will take camera with lens attached.
I have a Lowepro Junior I think it's called. It will take lens on its own plus lens & camera with a tight squeeze. (I like a little space around mine) But not with battery pack attached.
I shall look at this one and the Expedition 8..
Thanks for pointing this out to me. Appreciated.
I was going to suggest you Expedition 7x or 8x but fear it might be too big for you.
I use this Vertex 100
I had sigma 50-500 in it all the time with bags of room to spare in a fully customisable interior and now I use it for a sigma 120-300 f2.8 which does use the centre section fully with a body attached but I can still tuck in lenses and a couple of flashes.
The most important thing though is it is very comfortable loaded fully...and I am only a hand full of inches taller than your goodself.
I think the Expidition 6x might just be right for me. I shall see if the Carmarthen Camera shop has one for me to look at.
That Vertex 100 looks pretty good also. Slightly deeper and higher than the Expidition 6x
Thank You both for the help. Just need to have a closer look at them both now.
I found This site very useful because it has reviews like this for most bags, including the Tamrac one as well I think, and shows just what kit you can get in the bag.
Thanks Kathy, that's been helpful in confirming which bag I need to upgrade too, as the local camera shop only stock a partial range.
LowePro or Tamrac if walking long distances (good harness) and ThinkTank for maximum protection as carry on luggage etc.
If you have a Jacobs store nearby they carry good ranges of larger bags - pick a quiet time and take your equipment with you.
I'll go with Cole I have a Expedition 6 and it will hold all the gear you require and much more and sits well on your back
