Am looking for a light-ish bag that I can use to take on walks with me. I have been looking at the range of half and half bags which seem to be on the market at the moment. We're talking Kata 3in1 - 30,Tamrac Aerospeed 85 etc.
I want to have a normal bag section for some lunch and a camera part to take limited gear with me. Easy access would be a bonus I suppose so the side opening bags seem like a good idea but I am unsure of how well they would work in practice.
Ideally some means of attaching a tripod should I need both hands free would be good, although not essential as I can get a tripod sling.
I have tried the body in both of the bags I mention above and it fits most easily in the Kata. The body kept snagging trying to get it in the side aperture of the tamrac.
The zips worry me on the kata though, there is always a gap and if you walk in a sandy place that will mean camera gear + sand in storage... this bothers me a lot.
Anyone have any crazy suggestions that will absolutely sell me to something?
P.s. Not keen on sling due to historic back issues, I would rather share the weight on both shoulders.
