I was looking for a super light compact day pack to carry some walk around kit in

I discovered the Macpac AMP 12 hr with a wide padded waist band and sternum strap, which is designed for adventure racing.

Normally I would just use it to carry the 5dm2 gripped with a couple of telephotos or standard lenses, but it is surprising how much this back-pack can hold.
I got away from using dividers and inserts by using neoprene lens sleeves to protect the equipment.

Fully loaded Pack with zipped compartments in the waist band


200L in a neoprene lens sleeve goes in the front mesh pockets, the compression straps hold it in place

Main compartment carries 50L, 5dm2 with 24-105L attached, 17-40L, 430exII flash

Teleconverters 1.4x and 2.0x goes in the flap pocket

Everything that fits in the bag, to give you a perspective on it's small size

Size of the bag compared to the 5dm2 gripped

The waist belt zipped pockets can carry a range of accessories e.g TC's, batteries, mobile phones etc.

The small expandable pocket on the shoulder strap is ideal for batteries

1Dx, 1DM4, 5DM2, 7D, EOS-M, 8-15L, 17-40L, 24 TSE II, 24-105L, 50L, 85L II, 100L, 135L, 200L f/2.8, 300L f/4, 70-200L II, 70-300L, 400Lf/5.6

I like that tripod, that rucksack too.
