It'll be interesting to see how this works out for you. I picked up a Camelbak BFM with the same intentions, photo gear in the main compartment with regular supplies and such in the lid and exterior sections.

Realizing I'm a complete hack with a sewing machine I tried thick foam sheets with only marginal success. Another option I thought of was to get some of the pluck foam from Pelican which will most likely be my next endeavor when my current ruck falls apart(at current rate should probably be within the next six months or so).

Good luck in sorting it out.

try out diamondbacktactical.com

they're 3day pack w/ optics upgrade is right up your alley.

i personally run with the lightfighter RAID pack. the internal pockets and retainers work well. i placed a smaller camera bag inside to seperate the gear...

here's a few pics of my set up.








there are a couple of advantages as to why i use milspec gear.

1. expandable- moreso that any camera bag that i've seen. imagine running out of room and only shelling 30 more dollars to add on to your bag when you get that one lens that doesn't fit inside.

2. rugged- made of denier 1000d nylon- abrasion and water proof, along with flash fire proof material.


on my last hike i was able to fit 1 d60, 1 d70s. 2 18-55mm kit lenses, 1 50 mm 1.8f, 1 70-300mm lens, 1 wool jacket, 1 MRE, 2 bottles of h20, a large set of filters,1 radio, 1 large tripod, 1 rocket blower, an e2 cleaning bottle with swabs, 1 midsized laptop with charger and a gorillapod, extra set of SD and CF cards.

here's a better view of the internal pockets and how a d70s with 18-55 lens looks. it actually fits.

Kevin, you might look at this , and you can get the camera block separately.
Kata bags used to sell padding kits but it looks like they have been discontinued.
