Backpack recommendations: fits a tripod inside
Sep 3, 2012

I'm looking for a bag that will fit my tripod inside, along with a small amount of other gear. I have a lopsided kit: an X-pro1 with 2 lenses, plus a Gitzo Traveler-series tripod. The tripod is much larger and heavier than the camera gear. It seems like a shame to get a whole full-size backpack to hang the tripod from and then put my tiny kit down in the bottom with all that empty space.

I'm looking at the Lowepro Flipside 200, which looks nice except that the interior is too short to fit the tripod at 17.1" folded. What I'd really like is a long, narrow backpack that has space for a tripod plus a body and two lenses; basically a slightly longer Flipside. Is there such a bag? Does anyone have a different suggestion for how to carry my gear?
