DAKINE Quest Backpack - 1710cu in
Best compromise I could find.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Protects & holds canon equip well (camera body w/24-70 zoom & hood in place, 70-200 f/2.8 II, extender or 3rd lens & misc pieces). Room in top for jacket & food, laptop, water btl. Tripod fits nice (full size Manfrotto). I carried 40lbs. Cons- waist support belt rides too high. I tucked it under my pants belt for comfort. Shoulder straps are well padded. Why no D-rings? Less bulky vs. Kata or Lowepro camera only bags.
