anyone know of a good camera back pack that has a segregated compartment for a water bladder?

Makes sense .. going out on photo excursions without hydration is a big no no.

I'm thinking of grabbing my old camelbak and finding a way to fasten it to the outside of my camera backpack ... thanks for the reminder!


a camera , a few lenses, various accessories and never enough time.

Water and gear together, interesting. :)

Lowepro Dryzone Rover has one, iirc.

No, but MSR makes hydration systems that have holes or straps (depending on what model) that allow you to attach them to the back of whatever pack you're using. They fit kind of like a shell on a turtle.

And with these you would keep your gear and water fairly seperate.

I saw a review of the lowepro fastpack 250 where he put a camelbak reservoir in the laptop section.

I've been looking for something that can do this and also hold some non camera gear, so will pick one up.

Bit disappointed with my camelbak's storage space tbh, fill it up with water and your not left with any room, had trouble putting my powershot g3 in there, let alone getting an SLR in.

Should be able to then cycle places and take some good photos as well, whilst not dying of thirst either ;]

*EDIT Just checked out the dryzone rover

Looks good as it has tripod holder and proper waterproofing of the camera section. Doesn't look like it will take a laptop as well though and its not got the quick access for the camera either. Looks to hold about the same amount of camera gear, though I've not seen one in the flesh. The bladder it comes with is on the small size and it costs about 3x more than I have found the fastpack for here in the UK.

^ This is what I do. I have the Lowepro CompuTrekker AW. I only use the laptop compartment to tote my laptop between home and work... when I go hiking or on photography excursions I slide my camelbak into the empty laptop compartment. Works for me at least.

Ditto for the Lowepro Dryzone Rover...carries enough of your gear, some room for the essentials, and the camelbak. My shooting partner on a recent trip to Havasu had one (I didn't). Had to hang nalgene bottles from my Expedition 7 straps...total PITA. A Rover is next on my list...its not cheap, but what it does it does well.

I'm not sure, but the Dakine and Burton packs probably have provisions for a bladder as well. Maybe also the LowePro Orion. I would think something advertised as a "daypack" might as well. Hope this helps...

Just do NOT put it in the section with the camera/lenses. ;)

When we do log dives we use these (external link) you could easily slide this into a side pouch or something on a backpack.

I bought the Lowepro Sliplock water bottle holder and attach that to my bag(s) and carry a water bottle.

Thought about that... Will it hold an insulated bottle?

Eh, probably not, I dont think one could fit anything larger than a standard cycling squeeze water bottle in there. I usually carry a bottle of Dasani or something in it.
