Very comfortable, but it does not have a belt so the shoulders and back are taking the weight.

Care to elaborate :) ? What's above sounds quite contradictory to me really...I've always been told to use the waist belt/hip belt to transfer the weight to your hips and onto your legs...

Yes, the weight is transferred to the hips/legs with a waist belt. What I was saying is that the Streetwalker series does not come with a waist belt. There is an add on belt available but I have not tried it.


Gear List:
Canon 5D MkIII
24-105mm f4L 70-200mm f2.8L Zeiss 50mm 1.4 Zeiss 18mm 3.5 Zeiss 25mm 2.0 100mm 2.8 Macro USM

Thanks everyone!

I feel like I've looked at every smallish backpack on the planet. There are so many great contenders.

My primary focus was 'weight when empty' in relation to capacity. I'm not exactly known for my upper body strength, and I know my limits. At the same time, I'm just a beginner and a hobbyist, and I wanted to future-proof my choice, which to me, means flexibility in the layout.

I'll definitely be getting the Think Tank Steetwalker, or Pro, as they have all of the above. My preference is the smaller of the two, as it comes in under 3 lbs empty, but I feel like I need to try them in person to make that decision. Once I've decided, (it could be awhile) I'll post a quick review here.

Thanks again!

I can tell you who doesn't, Kata.

I love my Tamracs.

I can't recommend the bag enough - Tamrac Adventure 74 or 75(if you need bigger) The price is right, the Cordura is amazing. It's comfortable. Real Winner.
