Camera backpack/storage for multi day hikes - cannot find a solution
Nov 23, 2011

Hi,

I've been trying to find a solution for carrying my 60d on 3+ day hikes. I have a camera backpack, but it is far too small to carry my photographic gear, as well as stove, sleeping bag, food etc. I really need at least 60 litres of carrying capacity.

The local camera store had few recommendations, apart from trying to find padding for my gear (4 lens, body, flash, filters) and retrofitting it to a standard hiking backpack. I suspect it will be challenging to securely stuff and pad a non-camera backpack in this way, however have not seen any specific photographic backpacks that are anywhere near large enough. (Carrying more than one separate pack is not an option).

Would love to know what others experiences/recommendations are. Thanks.
