Make your own camera gear backpack

posted on 8th of november, 2009

I do alot of hiking daytrips with my camera gear, so I was in the market for one of those camera packs that has a compartment for camera gear plus a compartment for hiking gear. Well after looking for awhile I never found anything that quite met my needs as the hiking gear compartments were too small, the pack was expensive, and the shoulder and waist straps were too minimal for proper comfort.
So my solution was to modify an regular hiking daypack to suit my needs.
First, I bought a 55litre small overnight backpack, which in my case was this Outbound Canyon 55 litre pack. I got this one on sale for $55.00. This one works well as it has a bottom sleeping bag compartment with an outside access zipper (where the camera gear...

Hi Timothy, this is such a nice article and very useful for all of us who plan to preserve memories on hiking tours.

Well…to be fair, it is Sesame Street, and it is kind of cute. The big yellow bird is turning 40, and to celebrate Big Bird's Birthday, he's going on Jimmy Kimmel, after getting a caricature on the front page of Google. Other Sesame Street residents like Elmo (the most annoying thing ever created, except maybe for Sarah Palin or possibly Nancy Grace or the Gosselins) will also be making appearances.

I'm planning to do a long 3 week hiking trip next year and surely I'll be carrying my gear. Maybe just one lens, because I'll be hiking in high altitude and will have to travel light, but almost surely I'll have to adapt some backpack as a way to fit everything I need. Great tips you gave here, thanks.
