What I need is a backpack that can take the following gear and can be used as a travel and hiking daypack…



Canon 30D

100-400 lens

17-85 lens

10-22 lens

50 lens

Filters/batteries etc



I also need as much space as possible for waterproof jacket, extra clothing, food, binoculars, maps etc.



I would like the bag to have a good comfortable harness, and possibly be waterproof/resistant.



Any suggestions? I've looked at the Lowepro Orion Trekker which is too small for my needs.

That Lowepro Orion is definitely small one.


Tamrac Expedition 7 or 8

Also Lowepro's bigger models like Pro Trekker/Super Trekker. (these appeat to be really expensive)

Here's some reviews

As curiosity Lowepro DryZones are fully water tight, including dropping them to water. (most are rain proof)

Thanks for that. I like the look of those bags. How much other gear does the front pocket ofthese bags hold?

The first backpack I bought was to hold everything I have, but lugging it around is a pain. If I get another bp, it will be smaller, and I will take what I think I will need for that day. Just a thought ~ Ron

In general, I don't like backpacks for camera. You have to take them off, and set them on the ground to change lens. I go hiking a lot and I went with a belt back. I do have smaller lens (18-55mm and 70-300). I went with Lowepro Orion beltback. I then use a regular backpack for food, jacket and water, or use my camelpack. Your needs may vary depending on the type of backpacking you do, but this is just a suggestion.
