    I need a medium sized rucksack/camera bag with the ability to hold a tripod on the side of it. I have a D90 with a couple of extra lenses and accessories. Can anyone suggest something? Looking to spend up to around £40, less would be better though :)

    Id like a lowepro with a side tripod mount. I currently have a lowepro but the tripod mount is on the back and it hangs backwards a little which causes it to catch on things! I'll have a look on their site.

    Ive got a lowepro vertex 100 aw. Its great if you just want to carry camera gear, but if you need other stuff i.e a drink, jacket etc. Its shite. Very bulky even more so with a tripod on the back.

    I do like that one. It's the side tripod mount is the main reason I want a new one. I bet you know why as well!

    I bought a Lowepro Versapack 200aw - great bag, side access, plenty of space for a D70 and a couple of lenses, plus there's another top compartment that is a reasonable size. You can mount the tripod on the back or underneath - the underneath thing is also good for strapping a coat to.
    Got mine for £55 from Amazon I think but I have seen the new and used on ebay in the past for £40.

    I've got one of these for sale - Tamrac Aero Speedpack 85 Black 3385. Side access, laptop slot, tons of space. Used it once, so it's mint. Make me an offer if you fancy it?
