    Hi!

    I'm going backpacking for 8 months, and am looking for the perfect camera bag.

    -It needs to be as small and light
    -It cannot look like a camera bag! I'm going to Asia, and don't everyone noticing my big, flashy camera bag. It should look like a regular backpack.
    -I prefer two straps, so it can be used as a backpack rather than a shoulder bag.
    -The only camera gear I'm bringing is a Panasonic GH3 with a small lens attached.
    -Some extra room would be nice, as I'm probably going to use this bag as a daypack as well, carrying it with me on day long hikes etc.
    -If it can fit my 13" Macbook Pro, that's a plus.

    Here are two examples of what I'm looking for:
    - http://www.amazon.com/Koolertron-Shoulder-Backpack-Rucksack-Waterproof/dp/B007528LF2/ref=pd_cp_p_3

    - Smoky Mountain - Millar - Products

    Can't find any proper advice on this on the internet, do any of you have any experience with these kinds of bags?

    Thanks a lot!

    Thank you for the link!

    I just realized the Koolertron bag is huge, so that's out of the race, but why not the F-stop? Other than the additional zipper, it looks like a regular backpack, it's the perfect size, it's very light. Why add another shoulder bag to the equation if I'm trying to reduce weight and stuff that takes up place?
