Gear for the Trail....

There is a fair amount of discussion here about gear--the merits of the 12-60mm versus the 14-54mm or a 11-22mm over just going 12-60mm.   These are important discussions to be sure, but the toughest choice I face with gear is how to carry it, particularly if you are a day hiker such as myself.

I am using a lowepro pack--AW400. With this I normally carry a lens or two--a 50-200mm and maybe the 8mm.  I also bring along binoculars, some snacks, lunch and water and more water

I also use a cotton carrier vest. This usually includes the e-5 and the 12-60mm.

I am pleased with the vest, which was overpriced and worth every cent of the price, but the pack is another story. Getting camera gear in is a pain.  I don't feel like there is adequate space for water.

Would I be better off with a regular day pack?

What do the hikers amongst us use?
