Default Fanny Pack or small backpack

We're headed to DisneyWorld over Christmas Holidays. I'm looking for the right Fanny Pack or small backpack to take to the parks.

I'd like a fanny pack, but my Canon 5D doesn't fit in any fanny packs sold by REI. I found one at LowePro, but it seems to just be a camera shaped case that is so camera specific that there's no room for anything else I want to carry in the fanny pack.

I'm taking my whole bag of stuff to the hotel, that's not an issue. I'm just looking for a walk around the park fanny pack.

My second choice is a back pack, any nominees?

Thanks, and have a magical day.

LowePro Toploader Pro AW is my choice.

Adults don't normally go to DisneyWorld by themselves, you must be going with the kids. If you have small children, you may want to think about buying a small backpack carrying case. There is a chance you may need to put some of your kid's stuffs in it. Take a look at this:

It's is only $40!

Have a look at Kata's bags, one of the DW or DT-family bags might suit your needs. Well made, functional and durable. Design might not be to everyone's taste though.

The above mentioned Toploader is very good as well

Thanks for the Kata Bag recommendation. I bought a Kata DW 495 and it perfect!!

It can hold my 5D with a 24-70 or 28-135 lens attached. It has two side compartments that are permanently walled off. And it's a study built fanny pack.

Bring on DisneyWorld!!

Faithfully Yours,
