OP expressed a desire for a backpack, and I would agree with that for Yellowstone.

sorry for the error. My bad.... :-D

Description is little different. ProTac Vs Runner.

Ordered the original ProTac from jet.com with 15% discount coupon. This is the exact model I had in mind, Thanks to the forum.

Got the yellowstone pdf, it is great but most of the pictures were shot in winter with snow, may not be much helpful for me as my visit to yellowstone is in July.

Most likely a knock off that is severly short on LowePro quality

Note the statement

FREE Economy Shipping from China/Hong Kong/Taiwan to worldwide

Further it says the item location is Spain.

But at $15, including shipping, what the heck! Just use PayPal as opposed to a credit card.

Contact the seller Tom. I know that several years ago when I bought my Jackson Hole guide he was very helpful (via email). He would likely appreciate the criticism as well as answer any questions you might have.

FYI, if you are near Jackson around the 4th of July, the town goes crazy patriotic in a fun way. Lots of free concerts, one of the best parades I've seen in years, and fireworks.

Ive got the mindshift ultralight dual. Though it's not top opened you can access everything from the side.
It'll easily fit my 1dx, 16-35, 24-105 and a 70-300.
Also has plenty of storage in main compartment.

We stay at a place named Inn on the Creek and sometimes, depending on the size of our group rent a condo out in Teton Village. You can walk to most places in town from Inn on the Creek, where Teton Village is a 10 to 15 minute drive.

I've never been to Big Sky but mapping it shows about 3-1/2 hour drive to Jackson so that is a little much for a day trip. Big Sky likely has its own 4th of July celebration so check the schedule at https://visitbigskymt.​com/summer-events-big-sky-2017/ (external link). Looks like they also have some free concerts...check http://bigskyarts.org/​events/ (external link).

Looks like I'll have to add Big Sky to my bucket list.

I have an S-Zone canvas backpack that I bought off of Amazon and I love it. It fits all my stuff, it's lightweight, and I I love the design of it.

Had the pro tactic and sent it back. Never could get the inside arranged right because of the arrangement of the outer access holes being where I wanted/needed to attach a divider. The inside has huge seems running across it meaning getting things to sit level was a pain. Also an odd thing for me to get used to is when you open the bag from the bottom you have to store your gear upside down so that its rightside up when you pull it out the access hole. Plus the way the top hole was cut meant that to get a 70D gripped out the top would mean setting the bag on the ground. Defeating the whole purpose of the "quick access". I know lots of people like that bag and for some its perfect, just saying it never worked well for me.

I was trying to carry more stuff that my slingshot 302AW could handle. I ended up with pro runner 450.

A couple of bags you might look at would be the manfrotto. A friend of mine has that and loves it. Has side access as well. https://www.manfrotto.​us …amera-backpacks/yes_-dslr (external link). I had the back30 for a while and really like it. Sometimes I wish I woulnt have sold it with my 70D. https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17996118


Also if you are after quick camera access. I found nothing better that a Lowepro slingshot 302AW. Which unlike most sling fast access bags has a padded waist belt to put most of the weight on your hips. You can get a 5diii w/70-200 pulled out and shooting in a matter of seconds.

Does anyone know if this would qualify as a "personal item" for flying? As in, could it be stored under the seat in an aircraft?

Likely late to the game with this info but also check http://travel.resource​magonline.com …in-big-sky-country/15731/ (external link) for Big Sky related content.
