Thinking 'bout buying this backpack and wanting to know the good and bad if there are any users with this set-up. Thanks

I purchased the photo trekker about 6 months ago, and found out that with all my gear it is way too heavy to carry around. I would suggest if you want a back pack to purchase the nature trekker. If you are dead set on the Photo Trekker I know where you can get a almost new one.

I have the Nature Trekker AWII. the photo trekker is just a bit bigger.

could you list what you plan to put in the bag? because the Nature trekker is pretty huge as it is, and if you could get by with it it would save you a bit of money.

sounds to me like the nature trekker should fit all that fine, with room to spare.. for me it fits the:
1D with 300 2.8 in the center chamber
20D, 24-105, 50mm/tubes on one side
17-40 and 70-200 on the other side
and flash and accessories in the front pouch and zippers.

Thanks I'll figure out what I'll do and I forgot to add the flash and a few other smaller items. But the way I got a price for the phot trekker for $183. so I was just wondering.

wow. thats sounds like a good price, is that local? if it is take a look at the bag in person and see how it sizes up for you. these bags are pretty darn big by any standards.

I can't imagine hauling around a bigger backpack than the Nature Trekker AW II. It's massive! I didn't realize the photo trekker is bigger!

Getting the new bag through digital corp. And also thinking about packing my RB67 with a couple of lenses along with it instead of hauling two bags around. Two bags now weigh 65 lbs. anyway, mighy as well just have one bag.
