I've been considering the Deuter Freerider Pro 30L along with an F Stop camera insert for my tavels. Inexpensive enough and seems to have everything I need with room to spare for travelling.

Can you get the camera out, quickly stash it, or change lenses quickly without taking the pack off?

If not, it's a dead deal.

Stealing a couple photos from my own Facebook page:

Without the camera within easy reach and lenses instantly accessible, you will miss shots.  What do teenagers, wildlife, and clouds all have in common?  They're impatient and won't wait around for you to take off a pack and dig around for a camera and lens.

You don't want to be digging through a pack when standing here, potentially spilling or dropping something:
