Bags for hiking
I have tried Lowepro, Tamarac and Kata and Mountainsmith and still have not found the secret sauce. If I hit the Lotto I will try Gura Gear. I spoke with the designer at the ABQ NANPA Summit and they have a great looking lightweight backpack system that had a butterfly type of access system but at the cost of a "L" lens, (not really but close), its pretty steep. My best solution so far is a old lowepro drysac insert that I put into a Dana Designs backpack that I have. I use the sleeping bag compartment for the camera gear with it's own access and use the top section for all my hiking/camping gear. Funny how with all the systems on the market most folks have some homespun solution.
