im thinking of going to newzealand early next year. the thing is, im quite noob to photography and havent figured out how best to carry my equipment around. will be looking to carry a canon 350d with battery grip, 1 or 2 additional lenses + accessories.
my needs are:
1) a small daypack - to carry photo gear, jacket, small towel, snacks, mp3 player, swiss army knife etc.
2) a way of carrying both the daypack AND your big backpack together.
ive seen military backpack systems where you can "piggyback" a smaller pack on the the larger one. i dont really like the idea of wearing the small backpack in front and the large one on my back. looks funny haha. are there any non military type bags with this feature?
also, how do you people carry photo gear in non-padded normal backpacks (for example camelbak)? is there a padded insert you can buy and just drop inside these bags?
