I have not used my backpack much in the field during foul weather until yesterday. It had been raining and I wanted to capture some great looking clouds but I quickly realized everything was muddy and wet, I had no place to set my backpack down when changing lenses or bodies.

I have a Tamrac Expedition 6X which is a nice bag with lots of storage. However to get anything out of it you have to lay it on the ground. Well that was not feasible unless I wanted to get it all muddy and wet.

So I was thinking there has to be something better for these situations, I did some looking around and have not found much besides a flip side but it would appear you still have to put it on the ground to get lenses and accessories out.

So I am looking for suggestions, I know a big shoulder bag would work but I would rather stick to something like a backpack.

Thanks!

If you have the waist belt on the flipside just hangs around you waist, allowing you to get stuff out of it without putting it on the ground

Just put it down and use it. Clean it up when you get home. Unless you are talking about 1' or more of mud, I don't see the issue.

Any Flipside series will be my 1st choice followed by Guru then Loka. Guru and Loka solution is not as elegant but should work in a pinch. Loka opening flap is too long too long and both Guru and Loka zips way down which makes a little awkward to use like Flipside.
