Default What pack do you carry your DSLR in on rides?

I've searched for years and haven't found one that I really like. Used Lowe Pro Trekkers and Clik bags, but nothing is really made for people who aren't hikers. I've made a foam internal case for my ABS bag for this year... probably stick with that.

What are you using? Pic? Link?

Ya its tough to carry expensive equipment safely in this sport. I have a couple differemt Slingshots and a large Lowepro backpack i use in other applications for carrying my big SD vid cam. Lowepro makes some good backs for sure. I like the ABS idea.

I use a padded backpack, but now that I went to an AVi-Vest I can't wear a pack and that was part of my intent when I went to the Avi-Vest is to get weight off of my back.

My current plan is to use a Pelican case that is padded and will easily stay shut or locked and make a mount or buy one where I can mount it on my tunnel. Cut the foam in the case to fit my camera and lenses perfectly. I'm sure for normal riding they will be fine, Might consider taking it off for big drops and what not.

This year I've switched over to a pelican case to my tunnel. Absolutely bullet proof! I made a custom rack to hold the thing down. Quick access, waterproof, shock proof. I'll see if I can get some pics, but imo, it's the only way to go.

I use the pelican 1400 case also. It is a nice size to strap on your tunnel. And can fit the camera with a 300 mm lense easily and the smaller lense also. My hardest thing has been finding the right straps to hold it onto the tunnel. I've been on some pretty rough trails and it performs great at protecting the camera. I would not think twice about dropping it in the lake to show people how much i trust it. Totally waterproof. I use a Nikon d3100.

I see half the guys on this thread are from Idaho. Guess we love our scenery!

I don't know about you guys, but there is no way I want my camera bouncing around in a case on my tunnel. I don't care how padded/tight it fits in the case/padding. lots of precision parts/glass.

Can you still ride like a crack head in a stolen car with a camera in that case? I would be nervous.
