Re: Cycling DSLR Backpack (or insert)

I don't use a backpack but a messenger bag (a large Timbuk2 like so: ) with an insert (the Tenba BYOB series are OK but IMO the padding is too thin).

This is surprisingly comfortable while riding a bike. I sometimes carry >10kg of groceries in the same messenger bag: that's less comfortable but mostly because it's hard to pack groceries so that nothing pokes into my back.

It also allows me to carry a tripod over my shoulder on top of the messenger bag using a sling strap.

I could easily carry this for longer rides (40+km) but I have a relatively long cycling commute every weekday, so I'm used to it.
