Canon's Deluxe Backpack 200EG

I just couldn't keep quiet about Canon's Deluxe Backpack. In short, the 200EG is my favorite pack - reliable workhorse,  through and through.

The Canon Deluxe Backpack 200EG is  designed to hold 1-2 digital SLR cameras with 3-4 lenses, flash and accessories. I carry the maximum and it does so easily. 

The pack also has a carry handle and detachable strap. There are front and side pockets for accessories and tripod straps on the bottom of the backpack.

The 200 EG is not only sturdy, durable and roomy, it's price is nothing short of unbelievable - I paid $40! Yes, you read that right. I still keep pinching myself. 

I've owned dozens of camera bags over the years, and this bag has everything I need, and then some. Did I mention it was lightweight? How's 2.58 pounds? This comes in handy when you're lugging two Canon 5Ds, three lenes, two speedlights and a host of batteries, cards, and gear. 

Not that I see much rain in Rancho Santa Margarita, but even us Orange County Photographers can get caught in a downpour. Gratefully, this pack is water resistant, coated with water-repellent urethane. I've had the occasion to rely on it and every scintilla of my equipment remained bone dry. 

Now then, it is the best pack in the world? No. It has it's limitations. It's not a quick pack, and it the construction, though good for my purposes, more expensive packs can make this appear slightly amateurish. However, if your needs are like mine (I've been creating portraits in Orange County for family, children, high school seniors and business and the arts for over 31 years), restricted to lugging equipment from the car to a portrait site, or similar close proximity, this bag will last you at least ten years. Considering the price, it's a no-briner!

Besides my personal perspectives, here are a few official stats:

Water resistant nylon backpack
Lash tabs with straps on the sides to hold clothing or various other lightweight items
Keyring retainer inside exterior's main pocket
Comfortable waist strap, sternum strap & wicked mesh backing
Tripod straps on the bottom of the back pack.
