Okay, so I'm a ski photographer looking for a new backpack.

I have a big bulky Burton Focus camera backpack that can fit all of my gear other than my strobe (plus hard drives computer and whatnot).
It's fine for shooting inbounds, events and traveling.

But now, I'm looking for a smaller backpack for inbounds (in a ski area) powder days, backcountry touring day trips and days when i just need less stuff.


What it needs to fit:
Canon 5d2 body (gripped or ungripped, not a big deal)
Sigma 15mm fish
Canon 17-40
Canon 70-200
Avalanche shovel
Avalanche probe
Climbing skins
Lunch
Extra layer
Small first aid kit

Thats all
Does this pack exist?


I've used a friend's Dakine Sequence for this, and it worked okay. I think Fstop Guru might work, but IDK. I could also look into other packs+ICU, but I love the quick access of camera bags and don't want to sacrifice that.

Thanks

I think the f-stop Loka would fit all that nicely, but the Guru might just work too.

Check this thread. You may be better balanced with the chest/back pack combo Ben uses.

The loka is a little bigger than i'm looking for.
I'd love to see a guru in person, thinking its the best option right now

F-stop and clik elite are two good brands to look into. Each offers see real packs that will meet different needs.

I definitely prefer having the camera in a chest pack. It does help balance the weight and makes for easy access. I do a lot of backcountry snowboarding and always pack my dSLR.

Mindshift has a couple packs out now that look really interesting though. They have a hipbelt that rotates around and brings out a camera pack that tucks into the backpack. Hard to explain. Just read Lou's review:

F-stop will let you try one, give them a call.
