    Are there any nice bags out there, preferably in a backpack format, that can fit a gripped D90, plus an additional lens, as well as serve as a hiking backpack, which includes space for water or maybe a hydration bladder, pockets for snacks and other stuff, and also a rain cover?

    For hiking with minimal photo gear, i normally just use my regular The North Face backpack, and just wrap my camera and lenses in padded wraps. The backpack is also accommodates a hydration bladder.

    real photo bags are usually too bulky for hiking. Unless you're taking a ton of gear, then it's probably worth it to go w/ a real photo bag. In that case i'm fairly happy w/ my loewpro computrekker AW.

    Doesn't the Sequence have a black that takes up the whole bag? So he can't put in a bunch of other stuff.
    I haven't seen the Mission before but it looks like there isn't an actual compartment for camera gear. Just looks like a normal backpack?

    Tried the Fastpack 350 wwith my gripped 40d and it barely fit with the tripod quick release attached... top of the body was very tight against the flap... which I didnt like in case something DID hit me, or I fell/etc.

    the pro runner 350/450aw is roomier, im going back and forth between that an a tamrac expedition 6x or 7x.


    I was looking for a small bag that could comfortably carry a gripped body and 2 of my lenses and a flash, for when I go to disney world and so on without taking my whole setup, but most of the smaller bags just don't cut it.
