Great Pack

  • Excerpt: I've used this pack on several day hikes in the three weeks I've had it. I converted it to a camera bag on the bottom and day pack on the top. It works great. Plenty of room in both sections. I usually carry a Canon 7D with a 70-300 mm lens attached and a Canon 6D and 24-105 mm lens detached. And still have room in the bottom section for additional lenses. The shoulder harness and waist belt are comfortable for long hikes.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Roomy

good, but not very good

  • Excerpt: the potential the design was not fully utilised. could have been a great bag if a few more thought was put into the design. the padded inserts were poorly designed and i have to use the ones from my old Kata bag in place of the ones that came with it.<br /><br />the construction however was incredible, it is also roomy enough to accommodate a pro camera with a long lens attached.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Looks Discreet, Roomy, Rugged, Strong Construction, Versatile
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Hard To Access Equipment, Padding Design Not Good, Poor Design

This is what you're looking for

  • Excerpt: I searched for days and choose this to replace my Tamrac expedition camera backpack. At first I dismissed it since it said it was for birders but I am so glad I chose the Kinray 53. I carried a Nikon d7000, a 50mm, a 18-200, and a 12-24 lens, a Manfrotto tripod as well as water and food for 2 sons and my wife for full day hikes in Zion. I removed the large cushion for the "Birder" scope and it becomes a perfect Camera backpack.
  • Pros: Adjustable For Laptop, Customizable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Room For Other Gear, Well Padded
  • Cons: None

Simply The Best

Dr. Dick, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The very best pack for birdwatchers. Can carry 1-2 spotting scopes, tripod(s), and digital camera(s). Need to create a strap to carry the second tripod. Only negative is Vanguard (who makes Kinray) cannot supply spare parts such as buckles, strapping, etc. I asked for before going on an overseas trip. But these can be easily obtained from a camping store.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Roomy Lens Compartment, Supports Lens Well, Well Padded

  • Excerpt: Покупал "не глядя" через интернет. В целом доволен.
  • Pros: Большой! Красивый! Можно "перестраивать" внутренние отделения, использовать как обычный рюкзак, делить на отсеки для фото и других вещей.
  • Cons: Цена. Система дышащей спины не особенно помогает. Для фоторюкзака маловато карманов под разную мелочь.
