need suggestions for lightweight photo backpack.........
Jun 28, 2013

.....mostly for vacations.

traveling with the following gear:canon rebel t2i,  canon 17-40 L lens and the 24-105 L lens plus a gitzo travel tripod which only folds down to 22" including the ballhead..

i need something that will allow me to pack all of the above plus some personal things-like a book, rain jacket if needed.  had been using a regular (not photo) northface backpack which does hold all of the above but doesn't really protect the camera gear and is kinda heavy.

wondering if such a backpack exists.  lowepro makes oine that you strap the tripod to the outside of the backpack but doesn/t seem to be too much room for other stuff.

i'm 5'6".  my tripod extends so that i don't have to bend over.

Canon EOS 550D (EOS Rebel T2i / EOS Kiss X4)
