    Any good pack recommendations for riding with an SLR camera? Ideally it would be more accessible than having to take everything out of the bag every time I get the camera out. I don't care about having a bladder/straw.

    Thanks.

    The Lowepro Photo Sport 200 AW looks really nice. Pretty spendy though.

    I own that pack and it's pretty good. Has enough storage for some snack, a jacket, and some miscellaneous equipment as well as a 100oz bladder. The camera compartment is more accessible than other photo backpacks, but like most photo backpacks they are still a bit cumbersome.

    Depending on your situation you could also run a chest pack. You'll sacrifice protection for accessibility though.
