Tips for packing larger tents.
I sprung for the Osprey Aether Plus 60 which has loops with buckles just outside the sleeping bag compartment, but when it there the balance gets thrown off and pulls back in my collarbone quite a bit. I tried packing it into the pack and it feels great that way, but doesn't leave be with enough room to fit either my bear canister or cooking system. Besides getting a more compressible or compact tent, are there alternative spots to strap the tent to keep the balance?.

Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack
Awsome back pack but small space for camera + lens
Everything about this backpack is really good, i love it.
My only problem is how small the camera area is. For example i use the Thule Aspect for a day to day use and it can fit almost everything i need in the camera area when i go out (Nikon FF camera with a 70-200, 24-70 and even a 14-24) so my...

Osprey Aether Plus 60 Pack - Men's
Legendary Osprey quality with tons of thoughtful features
I’ve used, enjoyed, and (sometimes) abused my Osprey gear and I’ve never been let down by the backpacks or luggage. This pack is no different. The materials and components are high quality and I trust them to hold up under the most demanding conditions. The various straps, buckles, and gear loops pr...

Perhaps the best well thought out camera back pack in existence
I'm a photographer. I obsess about having the right bags to store my gear when traveling. I have bags for almost every occasion. Billingham, Tenba, Lowepro, ONA, Case Logic,...the list goes on. This is my first review on a camera bag, so you know I really like it. I normally do not like side loading...

Osprey Aether Plus Series Review
Let me say this: the ether series is built for men to see the same packs designed for women check out the ariel series, and let me also repeat that point about carrying large loads. I think the 70 85 and 100 liter packs you see here make that clear.

Great Urban Camera Bag!
This is honestly an awesome urban camera bag. I have not used it as a hiking bag yet, however I have walked around the city for long periods of time with it - the straps are not the most comfortable, but if you have layers on it's totally fine. There is no waist strap so if that's important for you ...

Review: Case Logic Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack
The zippers are strong and operate smoothly and it stores a lot of gear and the overall design of the bag and the thought that went into how you have access to the different compartments and the configurability of the bag and the flexibility and how you can change. The use of a backpack and customize it to exactly how you want to use the bag is really well-thought-out and well done. So this is a great bag and I think you're going to get a lot of use out of it on your adventures
