    current options for backpacks that will carry up to 5x7

    I need a backpack for my LF gear up to 5x7. I had a total knee replacement last December and things are feeling pretty good. I went on my first short photo outing 3 miles with DSLR gear a couple weeks ago. That was enough to know my over the shoulder bags have got to go.

    I thought about a jogging stroller but my outings are 99% off developed trails.

    What are current makers besides F64 that people are using? I did a search but, honestly there was a lot of wading through long threads that needed to be done and several of the options are no longer being made, such as photobackpacker. That looked like a great system.

    Check out this site. A friend has two of these and is very happy - he carries up to an 8x10.

    You could search this site for many previous discussions of this topic. The most efficient way to do so is with Google, actually, then restrict the results to this forum. If you read a couple of threads you will see what different people here do.

    I have several of these, one for my 4x5, one for 8x10 with a 5x7 reducing back, others for lenses etc.
    Very nice packs with movable dividers.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    @David Schaller - I have and there is nothing that just has current makers. Lots with stuff that no longer exist, and others that travel off into long tangents. Threads are like conversations and travel where they will.

    Not cheap, but if you are doing a lot of hiking, probably worth it. I am buying one after the new year, and will report back.

    A current maker is mr. König in Germany. He's the one who makes backpacks for Linhof as well as Leica Academy. For my Linhof MTC 4x5" gear (including 2 lenses) I'm happy with their backpack no.1. See here on their website: https://www.koenig-photobags.de/fotorucksack/. Unfortunately I don't see an English website but google translate may give you a first impression. For 5x7" I assume the no.2 would be better. It is possible to have a custom-made interior produced for a small extra fee. Orders are preferably received in personal communication. But keep in mind they're in Europe and therefore, if you're in the USA, their products can best be acquired when traveling here.

    I use real backpacks, as in actual backpack trips. Why does someone need a special camera pack? Plenty of past threads on this topic. 5x7 is no problem.
