Thread: Backpack

  1. #1

    Backpack

    The little camera bag that I have is getting crowded with the 2 bodies and 4 lenses. Once I add the flash it'll be even more packed. So I'd like a backpack

    Here's the ideal setup for it to carry -
    1-2 bodies
    at least 4 lenses
    flash
    pockets for filters and film

    If it could hold a laptop as well that would be a hands down winner but not 100% necessary if it's got everything else. Any ideas?

    Here are 2 that look decent off the bat -
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ck_200_EG.html - I know it's cheap as far as bags go so I'm not sure about it but it meets the requirements (w/o laptop)

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc..._Backpack.html - specifies it holds a laptop (mine is 15.4" widescreen) but doesn't speak of how much it holds as far as lenses/accessories.

    Either way, they're a good start I think. Anyone have others to look at?

    I'd also consider the Crumpler Brazillian Dollar Home--It'll hold all that, and a bag of donuts. You can wear it messenger style, or back-packishly. Crumpler also makes custom-to-order bags in NYC.....but bring your checkbook.

    Yeah I know crumpler is expensive and I missed the beer for bags trade last month - i got all the stickers and stuff from them about it. I'm not sure if I could give up beer for a bag though. tough call.

    EDIT: I do really like the Brazilian Dollar Home bag. I like the way it's set up and that it holds the tripod folded at hte bottom like that. Not sure if I wanna stick with the backpack though. Either way, thanks for reminding me about crumpler. I think between that and the LowePro, I'll find one that I'll be 100% happy with.

    If they have good deals I should check it out. I was avoiding both of those places on principle after the horror stories I heard from all of you here.
