A protective, easy mode of transport for your SLR camera is essential, especially if it’s coupled with other equipment you might want to carry. The Fastpack 250 is the second largest of four backpacks with enough space for your camera, a 15-inch laptop, plus whatever other gear you might want to carry along. What separates these bags from all the other ones out there is the fact that you don’t have to take off the bag to dig out your camera. Slide off on shoulder strap, and the camera is accessible through a zippered side compartment. so whether you are a professional or just the occasional shutterbug, then this bag is for you.  [$119.00 at lowepro]
