    Re: Backpack for 8x10

    I'd get an old Kelty aluminum frame pack and slide 'er into that. Use your dark cloth for padding and be careful around rocks and trees and other stuff that doesn't like cameras.

    Have you knocked your front end out of alignment yet? If not, it's probably adequate.
