Do you use a Maxpedition Bag as a camera bag?

Considering getting a Colossus and wondering if anyone else has done this...
Best,

I've used a Jumbo to carry a camera, lens (in the water bottle pouch) and a small flash (side pocket) but no experiences with the Colossus.

How does the Jumbo work for you?
I use a dslr+grip; my lenses are't so large, but my camera body is large with the grip.
Best,


Dave

My every-day-carry bag is my Tenba Messenger. It did a good job carrying my g11 and stuff for work. However, I'm not comfortable carrying my dslr+grip in that bag.
Jon has suggested using my Domke F3/X ruggedwear; I'm thinking about that. It's bought and paid for. (Much more expensive here in Canada)

From thread I replied to about Maxpedition Bags:
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=734660


I have the COLOSSUS Versipack and primarily use it for work carrying tools and first aid supplies, but I do convert it into a decent camera bag.

Just to let you know one major thing: it's called COLOSSUS but it's actually smaller than it looks. I can carry my 5DM2 without the battery grip with a 24-105mm L attached comfortably, however, don't expect any space in the main compartment for anything else. I can also hold the 5DM2 with the battery grip attached but it's a really tight fit. (edit: I also carry the 5DM2 with the battery grip attached but with a 50 1.4 lens attached)

It does have a CCW compartment but with the camera with a grip inside the main compartment, holding a firearm is next to impossible. There is some padding but not like a conventional camera bag. Most of the padding was designed for the CCW compartment and not for the main compartment.

All maxipedition Versipacks utilize PALS (Pouch Attachment Ladder System) so you can attach lens pouches and other modular systems that have a similar PALS design. I have the ACUPAT version and can't find any lens pouches to match, If anyone knows where I can find digital camo pattern lens pouches that would be awesome! I can also post some photos if requested.

Here is the thread where I posted some pix of the bag

Ive got the Mongo S-type for everyday humping around. G12 in a Caselogic case is always in there. Never tried my Dlsr though, but i think it would fit.
