Re: Cycling DSLR Backpack (or insert)

While not cheap, the F-stop Guru UL works with their ICU system, is small, light (for a camera pack) and carries really well.

Otherwise the EVOC camera packs (18l works great) also has a side hyrdation, and a side access so you aren't fully removing the pack to pull the camera with attached lens off.

For an insert some of the Tenba inserts (BYOB series) are solid, but still a little softer. They will slide into a pack that you already have.

Neither will fully protect the camera in a fall, but are some of the best.

And having been a mtn biker for the past 20years, and many of that riding with a hydration pack, and also commuting with backpacks...don't listen to the naysayers. It is hotter, it will make your back a little sore at first, but it also strengthens your back and if the load is low and handled mostly by the waistbelt you will be fine.  If I have to carry something i always prefer to do it with a back pack.  Also, for protecting your gear, your body will act as suspension and stop a lot of the vibration from going into your gear.

Hope that helps a bit more than some of the other messages.
