Yet Another Camera Backpack Recommendation Question or YACBRQ!

Hi guys!

I'll keep this short: I know the exact features I want and before I pull the trigger on the only bag I've found (Manfrotto Advanced Fast 2 or 3) that fits my criteria and budget of $150, I wanted to know if anyone knows of another one that has these features:

- Exterior Height of 17" to 18"

- Space for atleast a 13" or 14" laptop

- Split into top and bottom compartments

- Side access for fast sling and get your camera

- Side pockets for water bottle(s)

Thanks in advance!

Here's a link to the Advance Fast 3: https://www.manfrotto.com/us-en/advanced-fast-backpack-iii-mb-ma3-bp-fm/

From what you listed, you might also want to look into Lowepro`s Fastpack/Slingshot line[1] (version III).

I used one of the older iterations years ago (Fastpack BP 250 AW II), switched to something totally different in the meantime (Decathlon Quechua MH500 20/40L[2]), but based on your description, Fastpack instantly came to mind.

Thank you! I have definitely looked at the Fastpack 250 and while it hits almost all the marks, it's a risky choice for an under-the-seat personal item due to its height of 21.5".
