    Going to Colorado for a week in Feb. Want to take my 30D with me. Should I be cautious about cabin/snow/cabin conditions? Will I have condensation? Forgive my cold weather noobness.

    i've snowboarded with my 20d in my back pack :rofl:

    some condensation on the lcd from my breath, and on the uv filter when i bring the camera indoors from the cold....

    but thankfully, they survived many tumbles in the snow :rofl:

    I've ski'd with my D50 no problems. I've actually had it out when it was snowing really hard no problem either.

    My brother and I ski with his D50 in a DaKine Sequence bag with Camera Block quite often, no issues at all and very quick and easy to get out. The bag protects the camera nicely and the only hard falls I've taken with it on were in deep powder so no issues.

    I know that Airpoppoff uses his D200 very frequently while up skiing in a DaKine Mission photo bag and will shoot a ton while he is actually on the move skiing.

    Pick up a pair of these for the maximum effect:

    POW Photog Gloves (They look different on the production model, almost all windproof fleece outer with a grip palm and magnets to draw back pointer, middle and thumb finger):

    I have the Dakine Sequence as well, but I didn't bring my camera block, b/c I couldn't get my 17" laptop and my D300/grip, and all my lenses in there...so I just traveled light. It was more enjoyable that way. If I was more backcountry - I would have my bag with me. I really like the pack it is very well made.

    Dakine Sequence is a great bag. I think I want to pick up a Lowe Pro Stealth Reporter to use for my wedding gigs.

    That sucks on the laptop part for you with a 17" because my 15" Macbook Pro fits perfectly in the front pouch of the Sequence. Makes traveling with that easy.

    i use the sequence, heres last weekend. I like it, when its tight.

    I like the sequence cause it opens from the back, so when I lay it down in the snow, it doesent make my back covered in snow and cold. It also hold a bunch of stuff like my nalgene, some googgles, and my poles collapsed.

    I've landed on it a couple of times with no problesm.
