Looking for a suitable backpack for the mavic, spare batteries, a mirroless camera, Ipad Pro (small one) and a couple of GoPros. Any recommendations?

Have been considering the GoPro seeker or Manfrotto Advanced Camera/Laptop bags.

I just got this one: http://www.tenba.com/products/shootout-backpack-24l.aspx  It is like Magic where the size is perfect (I did not want a bulky bag) yet it seems like there is endless room and pockets.

I ordered this one https://microraptorcases.com/products/custom-backpack-designed-to-fit-dji-mavic-and-accessories?variant=30347015619 . Looks really good but because it's on backorder, I can't give any hands on experience.

I use a Peak Design 20L Everyday Backpack:

https://www.peakdesign.com/product/bags/everyday-backpack/

I can fit the Mavic Pro with a battery, two spare batteries, filters for the Mavic, Mavic controller, my DSL, extra lenses for my DSLR, my tablet, a tripod, and still have extra space.
I'm strongly considering the Peak Design Everyday Sling instead:

I received a DJI mavic pro bag from amazon, looked to be authentically sealed. It was nothing like the one pictured.,no dividers, no handle, and a tear in the interior lining. No leather on outside as well. I'd rather not say what vender from amozon it came from.

I'm going to go to Curry PC World (UK) and try out a bunch of lowepro bags. Will let you know if I end up getting one. Although I don't have my mavic yet so can't post pictures with the mavic in it.....(just getting everything ready)

I have just had the following delivered for trying out:

Lowepro Tahoe (£44.99 amazon)
Manfrotto Advanced Travel Rear Backpack (£69 Wex photographic)
GoPro Seeker (£99 argos)

The Manfrotto is nicely made and pretty roomy but the access to the padded section at the bottom is infuriating. Pretty sure that will be going back but I will try the others over the weekend before making a final decision.

The GoPro looks nice but it will definitely require a bag within a bag. If the fly more bundled bag fits I may go with that for the extra padding otherwise the DJI bag is likely to go on eBay as its pretty useless on its own for my needs.

I am using the Voltaic Array, not a lot of weight and enough room for everything. This also helps in the power department when you need a charge.

I got this bag on Amazon. I didn't want a full sized back pack, but something that was more portable, just like the drone. They have lots of sling type bags like this, I think it's going to be perfect. Plus it still gives the dividers and support. The bag and the mavic should be getting here in a few days, fingers crossed. https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... 0_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

As you can see in my post above. I have ample room still in the PD 30l pack. I use their field pouch (which I got free on their black friday sale) for my extra batteries and cable. The blueish pouch all the way at the bottom is my laptops power brick  and my 15" MSI ghost laptop is in the laptop compartment. What you dont see here is I also have 3 more spare batteries for my devices (though I plan to replace it with the omnisync when or if that ever gets shipped to me).  On the other side of the pack I also have a 24-70mm tamron VC lens, and a 70-200 nikon. I use a Nikon dF with a 35mm prime mainly for street shooting.

in the near future, I plan to purchase either a sony a7s2 or a fuji X pro. and there is ample room for me to take out the 70-200m lens and replace it with a 2nd micro four thirds body. Or I could get a secondary d800 shooter instead. Not sure yet as I havent really decided on which camera to buy for my second body. (though I am looking for something smaller ever since I got the Mavic lol)

The PD 30l can fit the drone, a laptop, and maybe 2 classes worth of books (going by the monstrous size of my accounting and economics books back in college)

The LOWEPRO Tahoe BP 150 posted by jamgabbi looks ideal to me for now.

Wondering if there is something a bit more compact which would also be good? DJobi please let me know how you get on with the Case Logic CPL-107GY.

Thanks

Update: I received my backpack from Micro Raptor Cases. The backpack is very nice quality. I modified 2 of the battery cutouts to accept the battery charging station and my gopro 5 camera. It is the perfect size and has plenty of extra pockets/compartments for storing extra gear (I carry around my tablet and the mount that I fabricated for my tablet with no problems at all). It did have a lot of unneeded straps in my opinion but I was able to easily remove them. Overall, I would give this backpack a 9/10. Just my 2 cents.

The Lowepro Tahoe 150 arrived today - I can recommend this one too. Seems like a good fit for the Mavic and accessories.

I got the LowePro Slingshot 150 AW.  Like it a lot and thought that it would cover everything but the Mavic is prone to accessory creep and I'm finding there's a couple things I can't squeeze in (the sun hood for my tablet, in particular).  Otherwise I've got MP, 2 extra batteries, tablet mount, iPad mini, RC, ND filters.

I wanted a bag for day hiking and droning and ended up buying the lowepro 250 viewpoint. It cost me £60 but I am really happy with it. The section that fits the "go pro's and accessories" is perfect for the drone, two spare batteries, filters, spare blades, memory cards, and whatever other small things you could think of (cables etc.). The remote fits perfectly in the top of the bag along with snacks for the day, a dslr with a spare lens, and a bunch of other stuff. You can also remove the bottom section and use it as one large space.
This is more for people that want to have a backpack to use around town and on day hikes that is used for more than just the drone/camera equipment.
