Here's my writeup on the Retrospective 10 if you want to have a look at it. (I'm new to writing reviews, but I promise they'll get better!)

Here is my new Pelican 1514 that just came today. I noticed it had black dividers which I have not seen on this case yet...i've only seen gray but I am diggin the black.

From left to right on the top row there is:

200mm f/2.8L, 24-70 2.8L, 135 2L, 2 430EX flashes in their cases.

Left to right on bottom row:

open space for wires and random stuff that will eventually be organized, future room for cyber syncs and nifty fifty which are in transit right now, 2 extra batteries, memory card case, and a few AA battery case holders for my flash batteries, 1D Mark II N and 1Ds Mark II. I love how everything fits nicely in this case and it works absolutely perfect for my needs. I love it!

The only difference between the Retrospective 10 and 20 is that the 20 is about 2 inches deeper. Now the 30 is the wider one.

Hmm descisions....descisions....Retrospective 20 or 30? Hmmm. I guess I need to work out which Urban Disguise I need to retire? My UD40 or my UD60? I think My UD 60's laptop space is very under utilised (I don't like to take a laptop and a camera with me) so the Retro 30 would be a good choice for me. I like the UD60 size, but I could do with the extra width across the bag.

Wider width = more things to put in = heavier load and possibly more clutter, unless you're very organised or strict in your packing of gear.

I've been trying to find a good camera backpack that would comfortably fit all my stuff, and I think the Dakine Mission Photo fits the bill. A few reviews I saw posted on these forums sold me on it, and it really seems like a terrific bag. Here's a quick shot of how I've got it initially laid out:



For some reason the camera block is a little shallower at the top than the bottom, so my T2i with a grip sticks out too much when placed right side up and pokes through the bag into my back, but simply putting the camera on its side solved the problem nicely. Plenty of room for future lenses and accessories too!

treck_dialect---if you go to the Maxpedition site there are lots of photos of bags being worn.

Another site for photos? do a search for everyday carry forum and you'll see lots there too.

That style of bag is very interesting to me. However, by the time they are imported into Canada they become prohibitively expensive. I know every one has to make a dollar...

Henry's sells these Think Tank bags through Head Shots, a store of theirs. Although our dollar is almost at par, the cost of a $149 Retro bag becomes just under $250 Cdn out the door with tax in. That was the last time I checked. That's where I lost interest.

Same feature with Domke, from Henry's as well. Watch the "free shipping"; some vendors limit that to the Continental US. Another vendor arranged shipping through USPS for me; much appreciated, because there was quite a saving compared to UPS. And UPS sometimes charges a broker's fee too...So shipping is a very real cost to Canadian consumers if things don't go right.

Glad you found an arrangement that works for you. I'm eager to learn, because I hate paying more than I should for gear.

At a current exchange rates, that should be $151 CDN. What is going on with the pricing over there? Can't you just order it from the US?

Has anyone ever tried Maxpedition Vulture II for backpacking? I was wondering if I can use it for day or two hike and have some inserts for the SLR and say 2 lenses? Any ideas?

What kinda inserts would be the best for such an arrangement?
