    Travel backpack for compact cameras?

    Hi guys,

    I've been visting my parents in Portugal and I've also spent a week in Paris. My wife and I would walk about 10km everyday and I decided that having my Sony A7 and some lenses in my packpack was becoming too heavy and a bit of overkill for just travel pics. I'm planning to get an Lx100 for some of my more relaxed vacations and I was wondering what is a good SMALL and comfortable backpack that would allow me to carry a foldable raincoat/windbreaker, maps, some food, documents, sunglasses, a small unbrella, a compact camera with accessories (batts, cards, etc).

    A bit off the beaten path but top quality packs. Goruck GR Echo would be my first choice. Or the Redoxx mini ruck if you like the layout better.

    Red Oxx Carry-on Mini Rucksack Backpack meets all airline requirements

    My favourite is Kata DR467. I'm on my second one. There are also smaller DR465 and DR466 versions:

    The Digital Rucksack 466-DL | Kata Bags
    The Digital Rucksack 467-DL | Kata Bags

    I have two Think Tank shoulder bags ........
    ......... but when I need a back-pack style bag
    I just replace the shoulder strap with
    Shoulder Harness V2.0

    f-stop Kenti.

    Perhaps a bit too big for your need.
    But very compact, high usability, exceptional backpack.

    I ended up getting a camebak m.u.l.e for a veery good price. Itīs not a camera bag, but itīs perfect for long walks and I think it will do for the LX100.
