Another bag request
1

Hi, I have a bad habit with bags! I sold several a year os so ago and now have a very large, old Lowepro pack that stores my kit (I can’t lift it) at home. I also have several small bags for my little camera (Canon M6ii) which are fine. Peak Design sling is a great bag.

My problem comes when I try to limit the kit I take out for a day. I have a Lowepro Whistler 450 which happily takes my R5, RF100-500, other lenses and bits and pieces. So far, so good! It is a bulky bag that offers great protection.

Currently, for landscape kit, I am using a Lowepro Flipside AW300 mark ii. I am just changing to RF from EF lenses, but that does not make a lot of difference. It needs to take a R5 (2 would be good) with RF24-70f2.8 attached, 14-35, 70-200 f4 and filters…..and ‘stuff’. I find the stuff takes up room. Phone, purse, Gitzo tabletop tripod, spare batteries, rubbish etc. The 300 is a bit of a squeeze. It is OK with one camera body, but not big enough for another with a lens attached.

Any recommendations for a rear opening bag?  Anyone used the new Lowerpro Flipside mark iii? What about the 400?  Or the Mindshift Backlight….if this one which size?

I prefer to keep 2 bags going as it stops me from forgetting kit by having specific stuff in each bag.

Please help me to make a better decision! TIA
