Cycling DSLR Backpack (or insert)


I've decided to loose some weight (being over 40 sucks;-)) and a nice way to do it is by cycling. I leave in 10-15 minutes distance of a nice woods that is often called "Lisbon's lung" as it is its biggest green area. It's also home of several birds, plants, flowers, etc. Many things to take nice pictures. I've decided that I'll get only the D5300 with the 70-300 and the micro 105 just in case. A flash only if I'm able to squeeze it in (my i40 is quite small and has its own (lightly) padded nylon bag.

It doesn't need to be too big (camera and lenses fit in a 240x200x100mm space) but it must protect my gear in case I fall from my bike. Comfort (riding) and low weight will be a plus factor.

I can use one of my casual backpacks if I find a proper shockproof insert.

Any experience or suggestion?
