Awesome piece of equipment! The adjustable, padded cells provide much needed protection for all your camera gear. The Block can be adjusted to fit several lenses, two to three bodies, and plenty of other smaller pieces of equipment. Tested this one out with a d90 and d50 body, one 55-200, one 18-55, and several adapters and lens kits. Worked out very well. I would suggest using a larger pack, maybe 30L, for a good fit. Any back access feature would be pretty essential for the block as well.
good roomy camera case
I love his case, like all dakine products it's super good quality and fits perfectly in my heli pro II and in my messenger bag, so wether I'm commuting or boarding I know my camera will be safe.
Perfect Camera Bag!!
I am a professional motorsport and wedding photographer and have a plethora of camera bags, but this one, by far is the most practical for on the go photographers. The padding is superb, the size just right and the zippers make for easy transition from one lens to the next.
Does this fit in a Dakine Heli Pro DLX...
Does this fit in a Dakine Heli Pro DLX (20L)?
It should but it might be a tight fit. I was told by a dakine rep that these camera blocks would fit in MOST of their packs. The block itself is 880 cubic inches. I cram my block into my poacher pack and it's a tight fit. The dakine backpacks for photo use are designed to specifically carry camera equipment. The pack you are talking about is 1200 cubic inches and it also depends if your pack has a rear entry so the block can be put in easier.
There's no way the block will fit in a 20L pack... 30L is the minimum i would say, anything smaller is much to tight. It really depends on how deep the backpack is. The Block is 11x15 by 5inches deep so the pack has to be at least 7 inches deep for it to fit good. Try the Dakine Chute pack (36L), i have a feeling that one will fit the camera block very nicely as it has lots of room and it's 9 inches deep, with Back access which is KEY for the block...
