Find me a backpack
Apr 29, 2010

Okay, maybe not quite the right forum, but searching through the various forums, can't say there's a better one.

I'm looking for a backpack style camera bag. I know people's tastes vary, and what you might like, I might hate, etc. With the death of camera stores where you can go try stuff out, you're reduced mainly to shopping online, which doesn't leave you much in the way of what's really functional about a given bag and what's not.

So here's what I'm looking to tote:

Canon 7D
Speedlight 580
24-70 Lens
70-200 Lens
Possibly a tripod (external) - would be a nice to have, not a must.
Cards, charger, hurricane blower and lens cloths

I'd like to spend

I saw a neat video for the Kata DR-467 - which seemed pretty good, but the camera compartment is the only "compartment" - everything else seems randomly strewn inside the remaining large pocket. It might be okay for my small amount of gear, though.

So what's your take? Do you own one you like, and why do you like it? Thanks in advance for the advice.
