I want a pack for a Pro body+ 70-200. I don’t want to carry anything else but a hood but the hood is not mandatory.

I know of the Lowepro pack and I like it. I also would like to be aware of the alternatives. I am thinking of a pack that I can wear on my back. Sling/Back? For accessing action/extreme sports.


cheers...jim

I use Dakine Mission Photo.
Canon 40D Gripped + 80-200/2.8 fits fine in there, may excet that camera with grip it "a bit too high". However i can ride snoboard and shoot photos with that pack. I

I've fall some time with my camera in a backback hard and it was safe. Camera works fine.

Some shots:

^^^awesome photos. You know what I am taking about. The ultimate would be a front/back/sling mount.

Well... I see no reason to buy 2-3 backpacks, as i have only one pack. Probably now i'd try and buy some sling, but i'm happy with my Dakine.
There's one more reason to get a Dakine: Once you're wearing Loewe or something.. People see that you're carrying pricey gear in there. Once you walking with your plaid dakine. people see a typical young men on a street carrying his stuff.

In addition to the LowePro bag I am looking at the Think Tank Digital Holster 50 V2.0 (external link) If anybody has and experience with the TT I would like to hear your thoughts.

I picked up the Toploader for exactly what you want, to carry just my camera and 70-200. My gripped 50d and 70-200 2.8 fit perfectly, with the hood reversed. I looked at several bags, it settled on this one and have no regrets.

+1 for the TT Digital Holster 50. I have the V1 and I'm sure they have improved on it like they always do with the V2 versions.

I've used a TT holster 10 v2.0 + chest harness to bring my 400D+15-85 while skiing. I barely noticed it was there, this will probably be different with a heavier combo. The holster stayed perfectly in place and would not move except when making small jumps.

I've also got a holster 40 v2.0 and 50 v1. The 50 is much bulkier, I'd imagine a 40 would stay better in place. If you have to possibility to use a non-pro sized body I'd go for that in a holster 40.

Make sure to use a V2.0 holster and V2.0 chest harness, as the V2.0 harness has 3 straps on eacht sides opposed to 2 on the V1.

My gripped 7d and 70-200 2.8 fits into the toploader but it's snug. Perfect if you don't want it moving around too much.


Big dreams, small wallet.

imo the 75 is more rugged than the TT. My 5dII with 70-200L IS mkI fits nicely. I just wish they would make one that can accommodate an extended hood. I think the TT does that. Get both:D

For me the 75 was to snug for a gripped camera that also had a L-bracket on it. I have a 5d3 with BG-11 that is a little taller than even the 1D family. The TT didn't have this problem. Otherwise I might have gone with the 75.
