I have read a ton of posts on bags, but I haven't seen this answered yet...

I am looking into getting a Lowepro Micro Trekker 200 for $55 shipped...

I was wondering from all you that say you have it, does it seem to get "loose" after a while and allow the camera and stuff move around?
It seems as though after some time, it may not hold your equipment to snugly...

Right now I have my D50 and 2 lenses, an 18-70 Nikon, a 70-300 Tamron, a couple extra batteries, cards, cables, charger, etc... Soon to be adding a couple of prime lenses.

Any insight with this is appreciated

Thanks,

Gary

Hi garjowan,
Iam Moxi from Australia,
I have a micro trekker since a while and find it very handy. I carry my spare equipment in it, but have the camera in use in a small domke shoulder bag. This means I can shoot on the go and have the camera savely away when not needed. If I feel I have to use a longer lens etc. I have to stop to take the backpack off. Seems to be a bit awkward but for me it works very well. So I would recomend it - by the way the equipment in the trekker is as good as you pack it in the first place!
Cheers Moxi

Garjowan,

I had the micro 100 for over a year and it was as good as new the day I passed it on. I just found it a tad too small, though it makes a great travel bag for that reason.

I now own the 200, it is an ideal mid range size, I have a body and two larger lenses, this just leaves enough room for my two hoods, (I don't store them on the lens). I also have a bean bag in there to steady my shots. In the rear pocket, i keep a pair of compact binoculars.

The bag is ideal for me and i not hesitate tobuy it again - however, it may not suit you, if you are planning to put two more lenses (ie 4 all together) and a flash in there. You might get it all in, but it would be a tight squeeze.

Thanks guys...

I think I am gonna go wtih the 200, I thinks it's a pretty good deal at $55 shipped and I should be able to fit what I am gonna have.
I was just concerned about it loosening up in a month or two....
