Looking for DSLR + Daypack
I am looking for a backpack that can serve me both as a DSLR bag and carrying other stuff like t-shirts, jacket, book, food and similar stuff.
My camera gear is modest, Nikon D90 with Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. This summer I will be going to see different european cities, mostly 2 or 3 day trips from my base in Paris. So I am looking for a backpack that can serve me well while keeping me light for budget airlines and city travel.
I have found these two options from Crumpler.
Both are within my budget, and thing I like about them is that the camera compartment is at the bottom so I have all space at the top.
I wanted to know if someone else is using one of these or any other brand with same gear as me. I can also look into buying a simple day pack (I have a camera insert from Vanguard Up Rise 33 messenger bag), but I have no clue about simple hiking backpacks. Some are 25 liter and some are 30, 35, 40 or even above 40 liters. I am confused which one to get, I do not want to get a big one to carry (I am 5'7") or too small.
Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.
maybe something like this?
What I do in similar situations is use a regular day pack and wrap the gear in a towel or clothes.
IMO most camera bags have way more padding than needed, if you are the least bit careful.
Thank you for the replies, the Compuday 250 is bit small for my needs. I will probably get a 35L regular backpack than then put camera with some sort of protection.
