Guys,
I am looking for a real backpack, that holds camera gear and has a large section for personal items, e.g. jumper/jacket, water bottle, food container, pens, wallet. It needs to be a bag for everyday use.


Canon 7D Mark ii, 17-55 f2.8, 24-105L f4, 50 f1.8 stm, 85mm f1.8, Sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS, Sigma 18-300 OS C, Canon Speedlite 430ex ii

I use day-hike sized hiking packs, with a LowePro TopLoader Pro 65 inside. The Toploader sits in the bottom of the bag which gives me room for other things on top of it. Works like a charm.

Specifically my bags are a CamelBak RimRunner, and an Osprey Manta 30 so you can get an idea of the size.

Just looked through their website, really nice stuff. This is now at the top of my list for a larger camping/hiking bag...

I second that!

Or if you have a backpack you like get a padded case for your camera and toss it in there.

I chose the Lowepro Rover 45L http://store.lowepro.c​om/rover-pro-45l-aw (external link)

The Rover 45 L backpack is 1/3 open space and 2/3 camera compartments.
The two camera/accessory compartments can be taken out.
The price is a shock!

The other option I have used is a regular backpack for my camera, lenses etc. with independent Lowepro carriers for each piece. This provides each piece exceptional protection, but is bulky, depending on how many cameras and accessories you wish to carry.
