  1. #1 Best backpack for Epic? 
    Hello my friends on reduser,

    Now I need your help again.

    The question is like the title tells it, what kind of backpack is best for Epic?
    What do you use, or recommend or don't?

    Please help me with this, cause I need easy to carry around one man band system.

    Thank you.

    LowePro 450 is the way to go. I can fit a full Epic and lens kit in there with room to spare. Super durable too, my backpack usually weighs in at about 40lbs, still holding together as good as the day I bought it 3 years ago.

    I am using this one: http://www.manfrotto.co.uk/pro-vii-backpack-black
    and Im very happy with it. I like that it has a top loader so I can keep my camera assembeled and ready to go. Just put the bag down and pull out the camera.
    The quality is s2n! I keep a small rig with Redvolt XL's, small Redvolts, a FF, 5"lcd, filters, redmag Pelicase, some spare parts and a 15"mbp. I also use the Trekpaks backpack system which I prefer to velcro. I dont carry lenses in this bag though.
    This is however the only backpack I've used with a RED camera, so I have nothing to compare it to.
    That Fstop bag seems nice. Very spacious.

    This is my favorite because this one ROLLS and carries everything and converts into a backpack and has my laptop and has awesome compartments

    I carry a full Dragon camera package with 3 primes, 2 zooms, 8 REDvolts quad charger, laptop and 3 changes of clothes
    all in 1 rolling bag
    hard to beat ive never seen more complete for me.

    the part that makes it best is the warranty, 1 wheel went bad and they replaced the entire bag no questions just got it fixed

    I have an identical sized roller. DO love it, but no idea how you fit all that plus 3 changes of clothes. You go by "BigLu", but you must have very small clothing. LOL

    I second the Tenba bag. I have the back pack version of the roadie and i love it. It holds my scarlet pkg (scarlet, nikon 17-35 2.8,Anton bauer brick, atomos samurai blade, red station 1.8) + my lavs, 2 swtronix torch less, leatherman, zacuto rig, various cables, filters, etc. It's great for carry on for most flights. it's built like a rock.

    All the ones mentioned above, and the think tank airport acceleration, if you have to fly a lot. I love it, huge space plus 15" laptop.

    I have a Tamrac expedition 8 and can fit a full epic kit into including 3 red bricks , then my matte box slots into the front pouch and shoulder rig strapped to it.
    Granted its heavy....very heavy I have never been stopped getting on a plane with it, and have snowboarded with all that in there.

    I have had the bag for at least 4 years and it looks new, couldn't recommend them enough.
