Best Backpacks for Adventure Photography?

I know there are some climbers who are serious about photography. This includes adventure photography and scenic photography - from the mountain perspective.

So you are climbing with something more than just a small camera. If you climb with a digital SLR (dSLR), and possibly telephoto lenses, how do you carry them? I'm just wondering if anyone has found a backpack that works well for breakable gear - provides more protection?

thanks,
dT

Perhaps this would be best asked in the "Photography" sub-forum?!?

DT -

Two thoughts. First, Lowepro makes a line of backpacks called Slingshot. It's only got one strap - sort of like a messenger bag - and you can swing it around to get at your camera in a hurry if you need to You couldn't wear it in conjunction with another pack, though.

Another thought is the Blackrapid strap. The strap goes across your chest, and the camera hangs by your waist for easy access. Hard to describe, but they have a video.

I've used both and liked each.

Or, you could just wrap your camera in a t-shirt and toss it in your backpack.
