I currently have a Billingham Hadley Pro that i use for storing my 6D, 35mm f/2 IS, flash, BR strap, and various minutae like memory cards and spare batteries.
i also use the Billingham to carry my camera locally (i.e. trip to zoo). however, i dont find it to be a very practical travel bag, especially for overseas trips - other than my kit, i cant fit much else in there. this leads me to use a regular incase backpack, and roll the camera up in a tshirt.
im considering selling the Billingham, and storing the camera in a box in a drawer. however, what i am really looking for is a recommendation for a backpack that isnt just a dedicated camera backpack. as mentioned, i currently have an Incase, its an older Slim backpack. I love bringing it on vacation with me, as it allows me to carry a bunch of stuff not just on the plane, but also when im out and about (had it with me on my trip to spain just now) and it allowed me to carry my 6D + sling (when not using), a large bottle of water, and allow me to shove a sweater in there and the like.
can folks recommend a backpack that will allow me to do this - something that has a small camera compartment, and yet still allows for space to carry other things?
or am i better off purchasing a camera insert such as this one: https://www.incase.com …camera/camera-insert-lite and just continuing to use my current backpack
