New backpack, Lowepro Flipside 500 AW or Vertex 300 AW?
Apr 16, 2013

Having just upgraded from my D7000 to a D800, I also got myself a bunch of new lenses, and now my good ol' trusty Tamrac doesn't cut it anymore. Hence I am looking for a new bag, and want to switch to Lowepro as I have a bunch of other Lowepro gear, like lens bags, the toploader, the belt and the harness.

The bag needs to be able to hold my; D800 w. battery grip, 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-300mm, 80-400mm, 50mm, 105mm, TC 1.4, SB900, tripod, iPad, cleaning kit, memory cards, and of course various cables etc. I usually reverse mount the sun hoods on the lenses.

Going through the motions on Lowepros bagfinder, they suggest the Flipside 500 or the Vertex 500.

Does anyone have any suggestions which one to pick?
