Re: Best backpack / rucksack for hiking photographers

Been there done that!  To this day, If I am on the trail or in an abandoned building, my best "camera pack" is a Kelty Redwing 50L with on or two Peak Design Travel Cubes inserted in the pack- depending on what I am taking for gear.

1.  It doesn't look like a camera bag full of expensive gear- especially when I have room to put my tripod inside the pack.

2. It's a true hiking pack with thought and design put into a comfortable strap system.  Most designated camera packs seem to put more though into the gear area and not the shoulder straps.  I will say the the Lowepro Whistler series, seems to have a pretty comfortable strap system.

3.  If packed with some thought, you have plenty of room left over for carrying non camera related gear.

4.  The travel cube system turns my pack modular- configure the pack for the mission at hand.

To the OP, nice write up.
