I have a regular backpack that I really love to use, I want to be able to put my 7d with a 15-85 attached into it. Since the backpack doesn't hav ea specific place for the camera to go, I'd like someway to provide a little bit of cushioning.

As such, I'm looking for the most form fitting case that I can get for this combo while still protecting the camera.

I already own a toploader 70aw, which fits my camera great but it's just too bulky to stuff into a backpack for me.

Anyone have any thoughts, ideas or own any of the above??

I wouldn't say a holster is very ideal. The body cover or some sort of bucket would work. Crumpler makes some along with...kata. You could get a small insert or something similar that would still allow you to stick things in your backpack.

Thanks _aravena!

Would you suggest the Crumpler Haven M or Haven L for my needs?

Tenba insert may be a solution. I sometimes use it in Northface surge back pack. Fits perfectly.

If you want a pouch type thing then yes, similar to the Crumpler but Tenba or Domke's inserts could work too. That's what I did for awhile using my Bug Out bag and my laptop.

I use this one with my T2i and 17-50mm Sigma. I throw it into my hiking backpack and it protects very well. http://www.amazon.com …ster-Black/dp/B001TZUS98/ (external link)
