I was looking for a camera backpack for travel. I needed a Camera backpack for airline travel. I researched a lot of bags. It had to fit in an airplane overhead. It had to have space for multiple camera bodies and lenses, and also hold a laptop, tablet, and headphones. I also wanted some external pockets. One for easy access to my headphones so I could listen to music or movies on a plane. I wanted a couple of smaller pockets to hold my passport and cell phone. I use the airline app on my phone for my boarding pass. So I have to have my phone out going through security but need a pocket to put it in before the bag goes through the x-ray machine.
I finally settled on a backpack style bag. With camera equipment and a laptop and a tablet, it was going to be heavy. If you have to change planes, you could be walking a long way through the airports.
I chose the Vanguard Alta Rise 48 backpack. It’s not too big, but big enough to hold everything I wanted to bring on the trip.
I had a lot of equipment to put in this bag. A Nikon digital SLR camera with multiple extra lenses. A Panasonic Lumix compact camera. A laptop, tablet and headphones. Chargers for cameras, phones, tablets and laptops.
Here’s a youtube video showing the backpack being packed.
