Hello!

In autumn I ordered an Fstop backpack, containing an internal storage box. This backpack is great for one to two days hiking. But the problem is to get access to the camera, if you need it immediatly.
I will have to look for another backpack with an fast release on the side, sized about 25-30 liters.
It has to contain a Canon 5DMkIII (with grip if possible), 100-400mm L, (or 70-200mm 2.8 II). One 100mm 2.8 Macro, 50mm 1.4 and a 18-35mm 1.8 lens. No notebook. Place for some food and drinks and clothes. good carrying comfort needed.

Price: Not above 500$.

Who can help me?

Mona

Dear Mona.
I love my KATA 3in1-30 Backpack/ Slingpack, that can open the camera with lens on the Sides and on the top.

Great bag!

Have a look at this one:

http://www.kata-bags.com/revolver-8-pl-revolving-backpack-for-pro-dslr-5-lenses-ktpl-r-8

It's an updated and new style. I Love the rotating middle. I've tried it with a 5d3 and 3 lenses (70-200 2.8 v2 & 24-105 attached) + flash inside. Worked really well.

Than you, Sir, Dear Mr. gshocked.
Wow, I need to up date  my 3 years old KATA, Do you have any Video that show how KATA 8PL-Revolving work ?
Thanks you, Sir.
Surapon

PS---Thanks Mr. Gshocked, I find it now

Dear Mr. Surapon!

Much thanks for your reply. Your Kata is not available anymore, and I think I need one that is a little bit bigger.

It is a little bit to small for me. But the revolver is an excellent idea. Maybe Kata produces an bigger one. One minus is mentioned, the quite uncomfortable carrying comfort on long hikes.

Have a look at the photo-backpacks from EVOC. I own the 26l version myself, which really works great with the fast release on the side. With little exercise you can have access to the camera with one hand even without getting out of the shoulder slings.

Much thanks. Ok. Looks good. How big is the upper storage part?

"60/40 division between camera compartment and pocket for other equipment"

So the upper part has about 10,4l...

Just purchased this one, the Uinta Backpack from Gura Gear.

I have both the 32 & 26 Batalea Packs, best I've owned, The Unita is for those days where I want less gear & more hiking.

You can access your gear without taking off the pack through a pocket at the top rear, watch the video on the Gura site, may be what your looking for. USD$400 with both internal modules, the water carrier & Tripod carrier, I think it's an excellent pack, just like any of the Gura Gear equipment.
