    Are there any other bags that are similar? I need a backpack about this size.

    And does the sequence have the capability of holding a laptop?

    how big is it?

    I don't think there's a local store around here that carries it locally or I would try it on for size.

    I have one its great, it doesn not have a dedicated laptop slot perse, but it does have a smaller front compartment that hold my laptop very snug and secure.

    It is a sizeable backpack, but its sizeaable because you can cram a TON of shit in it.

    i have the sequence bag. and i end up taking out the camera tote often because the bag is sooo huge. and to be honest, it doesn't fit all that much.

    i have a D80 and the only equipment i can stuff in it are my body, battery grip, 70-300, 50mm, 12-24 and SB-600.

    the other things like filters, chords/cables etc. have to go elsewhere. and then the thing weighs like 30 pounds.

    i would definitely get something else. i thought it was nice because you can strap a tripod to it. come to think about it, that's the only useful thing about it.

    i can carry my 30lb manfrotto tripod on the side and the thing has enough straps to hold down an elephant. so, utility wise, it's brilliant. but if you don't want to carry around a HUGE heavy backpack that can only fit camera equipment, look elsewhere...

    The sequence can hold a laptop in the top... not a padded compartment but it fit my toshiba tablet just fine and I suspect it'll fit my new lenovo when the time comes for me to head west (flights already for the 7th and 24th of jan, vail then highlands :coold:)

    anyone have pics of the bag on your back?

    You guys are making sounds like this is a backpacker's pack from the sounds of things.

    I have the Sequence Photo as well and my brother has the Mission Photo. Here are the specs on each:

    Sequence
    - 1800 cubic inches

    Mission
    - 1600 cubic inches

    They both use the SAME photo block that is taken out, which is roughly 1400 cubic inches, with adjustable areas for the lenses and aux. lenses. In the Mission Photo you still have plenty of space in the frontal pouches for aux. cables, etc. The biggest perk to these bags is the fact you can have a normal bag by taking out the Photo block but can have a secure photo bag at any point in time as well. I don't consider them *too* large, as I'm used to that size and consider most bags that are smaller to be fairly useless in size.

    can't decide btwn the 2... the mission photo looks better and has a tripod mount... the sequence seems to hold 200 cu in. more along with a few other features....

    I can take photos of both for reference and have them side by side for comparison, etc. Also, I can throw some lenses in the blocks to give you an idea as well. Let me know what you'd like to see and I'll be able to take it when my brother gets back with the Mission.

    There are a few places that can support a tripod on the Sequence, which are on the side, where as the Mission has the very front two straps to support it. Which is great due to being out of the way.

    Love my sequence. Currently holds in the main body . . . 30D, 70-200 2.8, 10-22, 17-34L, 50 1.8, 430ex, filters, sensor duster thingy, and remote release. The only complaint i have is that I cant sit on the chairlift without feeling like im gonna go ass over tea kettle

    A side by side would be really helpful!

    Is the extra 200 cubic inches really useable?

    It's actually a considerable difference IMO. I'll take some photos later tonight and hopefully have them up in the next 2 days. My main laptop is down right now so it's a slight delay in getting photos up online. :hsd:
