Hello!

In autumn I ordered an Fstop backpack, containing an internal storage box. This backpack is great for one to two days hiking. But the problem is to get access to the camera, if you need it immediatly.
I will have to look for another backpack with an fast release on the side, sized about 25-30 liters.
It has to contain a Canon 5DMkIII (with grip if possible), 100-400mm L, (or 70-200mm 2.8 II). One 100mm 2.8 Macro, 50mm 1.4 and a 18-35mm 1.8 lens. No notebook. Place for some food and drinks and clothes. good carrying comfort needed.

Price: Not above 500$.

Who can help me?

There's also the new f-stop Kenti, with quick access ports on both sides.  I've been eyeing that model myself.

I use an Aarn bodypack with regular photopockets. Everything I need is right in front of me. I don't have to take it off to access my camera and lenses. A 5D3 with LBracket is a tight fit in the Regular pockets. Leaves the backpack for the food/clothes/sleeping bag/tent etc.

Dear Mona.

I agree. I have one. I can put 5D3 + 70-200 2.8L II, 24-70 II, 16-35, 50, and a flash by using the side pockets and top pocket.

Mind Shift Gear - there is a waist level container spins around front so you can access it without taking off your pack.

For serious trekking, I use the f-stop Loka but I have a Thinktank holster hanging from the shoulder straps and put the waist belt from the backpack through the belt loop on the holster.  That way, the camera is always there to grab and use and, with a zip, is protected from dirt and rain.  It is not ideal, but pretty reasonable.  I still need to take the pack off to change lenses but I'd think that would be the case for any setup (unless you have multiple bodies hanging in front of you.

Here's a crop from a larger pic showing what I mean.  Pardon the quality, but it is from a P&S jpeg and just to give you an idea.
5d Mkiii; Eos-M; too many lenses; 430 EXii and a whole lot of stuff

Yes, I did, but the bigger ones do not have an side release. And the backpacks with an side release are to small or the carrying comfort is not good

How good is the comfort, if you have to go straight upwards or have an little climb to do?

Looks good. But I will not spend 500€ for it in Italy.

Have a look at the photo-backpacks from EVOC. I own the 26l version myself, which really works great with the fast release on the side. With little exercise you can have access to the camera with one hand even without getting out of the shoulder slings.

Great bag!

Have a look at this one:

http://www.kata-bags.com/revolver-8-pl-revolving-backpack-for-pro-dslr-5-lenses-ktpl-r-8

It's an updated and new style. I Love the rotating middle. I've tried it with a 5d3 and 3 lenses (70-200 2.8 v2 & 24-105 attached) + flash inside. Worked really well.
