    Tenba is very good.

    Also look at Lowepro. http://www.lowepro.com/Products/Backpacks/allWeather/

    ThinkTank has an interest backpack. http://www.rotation360.com/

    There is also F.64 and others. Here's a good list. http://www.imaginginfo.com/article/a...siteSection=26

    Don't forget Tamrac. http://www.tamrac.com/

    Hope that helps broaden the search.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I've been very happy with my f64 backpack though I use it for long walks, not camping trips. It wouldn't be big enough by itself for an 8x10 system plus food and a lot of camping gear. But for day hikes it's very good - large enough to hold an 8x10 camera, three medium size lenses on boards, light meter, filters, loupe, and three holders. I've used it with two Deardorffs and a Kodak 2-D. It works better with a clam shell design camera such as the Deardorff rather than a tail board like the 2-D because of the depth of the latter with tail board. But it will work with that type camera, things are just a tighter fit. Since it isn't heavily padded the weight of the pack alone isn't bad, unlike some of the big, padded packs from LowePro et al.

    I have an f64 pack that I don't like. I'm looking at the photobackpacker system.

    Cheers,

    I have an older Lowepro PhotoTrekker AW that I like quite a bit. I don't shoot much 8x10 (4x5 almost exclusively at this point) but can pack my camera, 4 or 5 lenses, tons of film holders, plus a Mamiya 7 and a couple lenses, plus all the accessories pretty easily in it. The straps are heavily padded and placed well for me (6'1") to distribute the weight well. It's not the lightest bag out there, but it's comfortable, carries well, and has served me very well for years on some heavy travels. A friend remarked the other day how impressed he was with how well it's held up. I have used it to carry an 8x10 'dorf and it worked well. The film holders are the killer with 8x10. I was carrying 5 holders and one lens. Could have carried another lens or two.

    I have a Lowepro Phototrekker AW as well. Its a heavy duty piece of gear and certainly can carry a lot of 8x10 stuff!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Also 8x20!!!. But you need a suppertrekker. Excellent bag. Always Think Big. You never know where you end up 5 years later.
