Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW Backpacks
The Photo Sport 200 AW is Lowepro's first pack designed to carry a hydration system (water bladder and hose) as well as camera gear. It's designed for active outdoor photographers who want to carry a digital SLR and lens, water and extra outdoor gear like food, raingear, tools, etc. It can accomodate a medium-sized prosumer DSLR and lens without a battery grip, with room for a second lens or flash. Like all Lowepro "AW" camera bags, it includes a built-in rain cover. The weight of the pack is a very reasonable 2.9lbs/1.3kg.

Strengths: Light weight / comfortable . Hydration bladder up to 2L . rain cover/ tripod easily carried. Enough room to stay out all day
Weaknesses: The lower pockets on the waist belt are a little small
I went looking for a pack that would let me stay out all day in the Florida woods on hikes. I carry my Nikon D5100 along with a 55-300 kit lens with hood reversed in the camera area. Along with a 18-55 and memory cards and a few filters. A triopd goes on the right side no problem. My personal affects go up top. which includes a firstaid kit,bugspray, food for the day and light jacket if its cool or a rain poncho for the afternoon thunderstorms we get. Plenty of attatchment points on the outside. I can almost imagine doing an overnite with this but you would have to really downsize for it. All in all a great daypack that is comfi and works. Perfect for the person who wants to spend more than 1-2hrs out and stay out half to all day.
