I have had a large number of Tamrac bags in the past. All were fine for their intended purposes, but I don't use the over the shoulder bags much anymore. I have four that I use on a regular basis. The big bag is a Model 777 Summit Photo Backpack. It is pretty roomy, holds my 400 f5.6 with ease, and even full it is comfortable with well padded straps. I have carried it on decent length hikes at 10,000 feet and survived. Built in the USA and is very high quality.


I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I use a ThinkTank Streetwalker Pro for day trips, and a Streetwalker HardDrive if I want to take a laptop and/or need a little more room than the Streetwalker Pro.

I researched and invested in a LowePro 300AW

http://www.the-digital-picture.com …ngshot-300-AW-Review.aspx (external link)

This is perfect for hiking and holds my 5D2 with 70-200 f/4 L IS lens mounted(hood inverted).

Plus my 17-40mm, & 50mm as well, along with external flash, battery charger, filters, etc.

The newer ones look even more improved.

I suppose it depends on what you're packin'!

I just got a Tamrac Adventure 75 today. Can't wait to get it all configured and see how it works. I had a Tamrac bag before and really liked it.

ThinkTank makes the best quality bag. They use the top nylon, top sewing thread available in the market. More importantly, they use a very special YKK zipper product that is virtually indestructible. The zipper is the most used part of the bag so this is a key point. None of the other top bag manufacturers use this zipper due to the high cost. Thinktank bags are expensive but worth every penny.

Think Tank Streetwalker Hard Drive. Bought it and immediately took it on a "far far away" international trip. Many airports and thousands of miles later, I returned happy as could be. It holds so much so SOLIDLY that I was never worried my gear would tear the zipper and burst out. I didn't feel fatigued, and my back stayed cool due to the air channels cut into the (thick) foam of the backpack.

I got the Lowepro DSLR Video Fastback 250AW, about $95 from B&H (external link). It holds my 7D with a grip and either my 70-200L II or 100-400L attached to the camera, plus room in the lower storage compartment for 3 other lenses AND two speedlites. The upper compartment holds lots and lots of smaller stuff, and I can attach a tripod to the exterior straps. There's also an inner padded compartment for my laptop. Finally, the AW (all weather) option is an integrated waterproof cover that comes out from its attached self-contained pouch on the bottom to wrap around the entire backpack in case of inclement weather. It's easily carried onboard a plane, and I had no problem carrying it on my back all day for a trip with the family to Disney World. When carrying it on my back, I can quickly sling it around by slipping one arm out from the straps, bringing a zipper quick-release into view permitting very fast access to the camera when needed.

I like either my burton zoom pack or various arcteryx packs with gear inside them inside lowepro cases.

Depends on what I'm doing.

-For weekend hikes or when I need to carry A LOT of gear: F-Stop Tilopa BC
-Walk-around, including the office and just need a single lens and maybe a flash - ThinkTank Retrospective 50
-Walk-around for the day, small amount of gear - Currently Lowepro DSLR Fastpack 350 but going to get F-Stop Kenti

My favorite is the think tank hardrive(non-pro). It doesn't look like a thick camera backpack and while it doesn't carry all of my gear it will hold what I'd need for most shoots.

this. have the non-pro (considering the pro HD though as a second, larger travel pack). The straps are worth the price alone. Very well made, easy to put on and take off, and has a small external footprint.
