Photography hiking bag?

Does a product that combines a multi day hiking bag and a everyday camera bag exist?


When I go on hikes I like to take my camera but I'm forced to either carry my body w/ lens and stash my other lens in my camel bak or just deal without water and snacks and carry by camera bag. If any of you have seen a multi functional bag that'll carry my water bladder, snacks and other misc equipment with a camera and keep it all safe I'd appreciate the info.

I've seen inserts which may work decently well but I think a full bag would work better.

Best bet is to go to B&H's website and check out the hundreds of bags they carry. I use a Lowepro fastpack that has a separate lower section good for a camera and a couple of extra lenses and a upper compartment for snacks, jacket, and whatnot. No hydration pocket, but I'm worried about a bladder that close to my cameras. I prefer a nalgene bottle in an outside pocket or clipped to the waiststrap. I have a lowepro trekker about the same size that carries more camera gear but less room for other stuff. I also have a calumet pack that is about the size of a weekend pack, and used that for overnighters though it really isn't designed for that. Tamrac makes some with hydration pockets and room for non camera gear but they tend to be pricy. Like I said, B&H should give you a good idea of what's out there and prices.

I forgot about b & h mostly because IIRC they were more expensive than other places.

A good bag designed to carry both a bladder and electrical equipment would have a solid water proofing system. Of course it'd cost a lot but it could be worth it. I see a potential need for it.

I not only carry my stuff, but sometimes my girlfriends and always my dogs extra stuff as well(I always carry a spare leash, water bottle and bowl for them and I've added a dog first aid kit as well so that's more than my little camel bak can even carry without a bladder and camera). The last thing I want to do is throw it all in a regular backpack. I did buy a hunting fanny pack that I intended to use to carrying my camera on hikes but it's lack of overall padding makes me hesitant.

I'm kinda surprised there isn't a full fledged hiking back pack for this already. Of course you want the pack as light as possible but what you'd need to take pictures in the wilderness doesn't take up a whole lot of space or weight.

I appreciate the input. I will definitely check it out when I get a chance.
