Stealth Camera Bag
Just got this camera bag, The moment I opened the box, I fell in love with it
Holds all my gear with plenty of room to spare.
If your at all iffy on getting it. I would highly recommend it, and already have to all my photog friends
Solid protective bag and looks amazing
The perfect stealth Nikon pack - D300 plus three highly expensive pro Nikkor lenses fit and are extremely well padded. Some of the places my wife and I go for photo shoots are considered tourist traps which also attract some folks who like to relieve tourists of their belongings. Other places we go are best described as rough and tumble prone hikes. This pack is perfect for disappearing thousands of dollars worth of Nikon equipment and protecting the same should a tumble down the slope happen. Ironically we had this pack packed for our first hump out with it and I opened the back door on the vehicle and the pack literally fell out and rolled down the dirt road about twenty feet. My fault for not securing it in the vehicle. Said the prayer to the Nikon gods and opened the pack. Everything secure and working. That "save" saved us hundreds if not thousands. The pack paid for itself on the first use. Nothing else to add. If you don't have one, get one. PS. I also carry a defunct Olympus digital on the off chance someone does want to steal it. "Here take the Olympus just leave us the pack with our dirty clothes."

does this pack have the diagnol ski carry?

Does this backpack have the removable insert bag inside? Also, is there a rain cover available for this backpack?
I got this backpack because of the great reviews on handling photo gear. I am not disappointed. A couple of other things to note. I find it EXTREMELY comfortable. I can hike for hours and it doesn't cause any sore spots. I can also jog with it and it doesn't bounce around. I find it so comfortable, that I have even taken the camera block out and used it more as a backpack with a single camera protected in cloths. And if you are just out for a big day of photography and want all your stuff with you (lenses, tripod, panorama head, with room for a few snacks and a place to tie off a jacket, it is great. It's also got enough little pockets to keep some smaller stuff organized. THere have been some comments on the inability to carry a laptop. I can't really say as I never bring mine out on day trips. Great product that is well thought out.
I've tried all the rest, this is by far the best!
This is the only reasonably-sized hike-worthy camera backpack that will carry your camera and large telephoto lens without disassembly. Holds 70-200mm Nikon f/2.8 and 1.7X Nikon Teleconverter all connected with room to spare for an even bigger telephoto, and also has space for at least 3 other lenses (non-telephoto), or another big prime telephoto lens up to 300mm f/2.8.
This pack is durable, very well made for the price, has plenty of compartments in intuitive places, and is very comfortable on your back even with 15 pounds or more of camera gear on your back.
The laptop pocket? if that's what the pack is meant to hold (the large front pocket) is very shallow and can barely fit my macbook 13" notebook. This could be the only downside to this pack, although it does hold my macbook so I'm stoked.
If you have a 15" laptop and like to carry it with your camera gear, you might be able to place it above the camera gear on the other side of the pack, but it will require some adjustment and hassle becasue you'll have to place it aside every time you pull out your camera.

Will the smaller camera block "mission photo pack block" fit into and clip into this bag? Therefore creating more room for other gear.
Great for travel
Used this on a trip and did tons of walking with it on and it did not hurt my back. Plenty of room and cushioning for several lenses. I like that it opens under the back straps for extra security.
ultimate photo friend
if you are looking for ultimate backpack for your camera this one is what u looking for.
i've been using it for almost 1 and a half and you can fit everything inside.
totally worth the money
Dakine does it again
If you have ever had a Dakine bag, then you know what i'm talking about. this is my third dakine backpack that I have purchased and I love them all. My oldest one is 6 years old and still working great. This bag offers all the protection that I need for my camera gear and give me an easy comfortable way to hike it wherever I want or need to take it. The design is amazing, the inner case comes right our of the bag so I can take that if I just need a smaller protective case and then I have a great backpack.
wondering if this bag will fit my camera...
wondering if this bag will fit my camera equipement and a 15inch laptop in a sleeve? im assuming the macbook you talk about is only 13inch correct?
This bag can fit a a large amount of camera equipment, check out the dakine image for a very detailed photo with camera equipment filled in it. (http://www.dakine.com/snowboard/packs/photo/sequence/). With a 15 inch laptop you might be pushing it a bit. -C

i have a heli pack, but it's too small and it doesn't fit my skis. I've started to film a bunch, and I want a film pack that can carry my pow skis, can this fit skis that are 122mm in the waist?
Yes, this pack is sick and has an adjustable wire cable that will fit any size ski. I am able to carry the Kuro, 140 waist, on this pack no problem.

would this camera bag be able to carry a tripod...along with some other things..(camera, chargers,lenses, laptop)?
for sure.. it could carry it all easily
would this bag hold a nikon d 40?
would this bag hold a nikon d 40?
A great camera backpack!
I'm using this pack for almost a year already! It suits my camera greatly, as well as laptop, chargers, etc. It handles also my snowboard greatly...real tidely and safe.
Thumbs up for the dakine sequence!
Not too Shabby
At first i was a little sketch on its size but after using it for a few weeks now i have to say i am pretty pleased. It is plenty big to hold the goods (for me thats a D90 or D300). I can fit about 3 lens in this, and the camera block's compartments are adjustable, so when you are constantly putting different lens in like me ( sometimes its a 50mm sometimes a 70-200 F2.8!) they fit well. I took a helluva tumble with this and about 4000 dollars worth of gear in this bag, and it was a baaaaad tumble, about 120 yds at least head over heals. but, guess what, everything was stillin 100% condition afterwards and shooting my buddies huck the same cliff with good gear intact, made my day!
Alright i am going overseas and i want to...
Alright i am going overseas and i want to take my camera with me. but the thing is is that i have seen people get robbed of their personal belongings. so how hard is this to get into? can someone easily get into it lets say on a subway or walking down the street or something?
If it's all buckled down, they're not going to get into it without you noticing.
Great travel bag
Perfect for airplanes. Unlike most backpacks, it isn't too deep and oddly shaped to fit in the overhead bin or under your seat. It fits my 40D and several lenses with room to spare. I can also fit my laptop in a sleeve in the front pocket. Extra straps store away nicely too!
do you think it could hold a nikon d80...
do you think it could hold a nikon d80 with a 28-200mm lens on it
Yes, the inside camera block can hold a 200mm lens just fine. It has adjustable dividers so you can make it fit best around your setup.
I bought this pack to use at at Mt. Hood for the summer. It's a great pack and super durable. I appreciated all the little outer pockets for random accessories. It cinches down super nice while riding too, which is great if you want to have a good time riding down instead of being afraid you camera parts are going to be bouncing all over the place. I did have a problem with the water bottle holder though. The elastic came undone and I ended up having to tie it to the bag.
