    Trying to find a decent pack that will fit my rebel with vert grip attached and my 70-200 L. Most packs aren't deep enough for the body and grip. Anyone have a similar setup and a pack they like?

    Canon EG 200 is about $50. Not the best padded or most features, but its the best for the money. I've taken it skiing and hiking with no probs, and fits the grip fine. I'm apgrading to the Tamrac 5575 soon for the better straps and more features. Lowepro and Tamrac make a ton of different models, i'd check their websites to see how mig you want it to be

    I just got a Photo Trekker Classic, but it's probably a tad larger than what you need if you only literally need to fit the body + grip and the 70-200:
