We just got in a stock of the Lowepro Flipside series packs. If you are into photography, and you like to hike, here is the ideal way to combine the two. The Flipsides come in several sizes and are priced starting under $100 which is close the price of a good day pack anyway. I put the Flipside AL 15AL through its paces today with a 2.5 hour 10 mile hike at Umstead. I packed a 5D Mark II with three lenses, a flash and all the small goodies that fall into the “we have to have them ’cause we’ll need them if we don’t bring them” category. I also packed a snack and an Osprey 1.5 liter hydration pack ( yes these babies have an H2O sleeve!). With the adjustable waist and chest straps, I will have to say this pack was just the ticket for carrying camera gear on a hike. The inside camera gear sleeve is also removable if you want to convert into a day pack sans camera gear. Come by the store and check ‘em out.
