    Rover Plus AWII

    Accompanied me a good week over in Japan with body+grip/18-35, 24-85, 50mm with space for portable HDD, charger, blower.

    Flash leave at home.

    I use tripod bag to bring my tripod over.



    Still carried, jackets, fleece, food, wallet etc in the bag. Also carried a Qoo bottle when flying back

    Doesn't look too bad, but suggest getting a bag that have alittle more space for other stuff like sweater, water bottle etc...

    thanks for the recommendation! i checked out the lowepro site they only have the Rover AWII or Rover Plus AW for viewing. Can't find the Plus AWII should be bigger than the Plus AW right?

    Looks ok to me.. Wun be a leisure/tour backpacking but a trek/backpack thingy. so might need to prepare for 24hr food supply. Did you get yours from CP?

    the nova 3 only carries my photo equipment. I was hoping for seasoned photo-backpackers to shed light unto me how they carry their trekking bag and photo eqpt.

    I have another bag that I used to backpack with before going into photo-taking, but it's too long and slinging the nova3 makes movement a bit awkward.

    Body + kit lens, hang on neck.

    50mm, 100mm, charger, PnS, flash put it in ur Nova3 OR a better alternative... PhotoRunner.
    Tripod in tripod bag.

    Check in tripod together with luggage. Nova3 or PhotoRunner place under ur seat. Camera remain on ur neck.

    Done deal. Or at least this is my method for my trip this week.

    Hi I just came back from an 18 day trip. Carried a 60L Deuter backpack for my clothes, tripod, charger, etc. Kept my D70+Tamron 18-200+50mm+SB600 in a Lowepro Photorunner which I belt strapped and also slung under my coat (to reduce movement). If you want to add a 100mm or a P&S, you might wanna add some belt attachments onto this combi. Overall it was comfortable for me to carry the equipment ard with relatively good accessibility to my camera with lens attached.

    If you have the option of a hotel room or holding area for your main luggage, you may also want a smaller day pack (30L) to put your tripod, spare clothes, camelbak reservoir, snacks, cleaning kit etc etc.

    Have fun!
