    I'm looking for a hard plastic case to put the d200 or the d70 in while its in my Skiing backpack, It's a Dakine Heli-Pro, It's not very big, but I can put my camera in there with a fleece wrapped around it, but If I land on my back, my shizz is going to be toast.

    Just any suggestions that will hold the camera without grip and the 18-200, I have a hard plastic long case for the 70-200 already.

    Any Ideas?

    I hate to recommend something that's a different solution, but how about going with a Dakine Sequence/Camera Block?

    the zoom has a shovel pocket, pockets for probes and handles, and a external beverage pocket i put a water bottle in for skiing.

    but...it is thick and sucks man annoos on the lift.

    you'll have to find something really hardcore solid if you want to withstand a fall on your back snowboarding on a groomed trail...

    Something like a custom built box or modified small toolbox.

    That's what I used to do for an A70. It worked, thoguh it was ghetto. I don't know if I'd do it with my D80, though...

    I'm searching on the subject a little, and seems most go with a Pelican hard case (i.e. not ergo) to carry stuff like this:

    pelican hard case. best there is.

    you said you wanted something to protect your camera, and it will protect it. it may not be comfy on the chairlift, but you obviously wan't to protect it.

    want comfiness? keep doing what you are doing
    want to protect your gear that cost 2 grand? pelican

    i found with my sequence its pretty eazy to just swivel it around when getting on the lift. matt if you want to borrow the backpack for a day to try it out give me a call.

    you can probably get a pelican small enough to fit in the backpack, of course it's a pita to take your gear out, but you could fall as much as you want with that case in yoru backpack

    Yeah, I don't care about that, because wheneever I stop to take pics, it's going to be of about 5 of my freinds, so I'll be stationary for a while, Which I wont have to worry about easy access.
