My current camera backpack, a Tamrac is stupidly uncomfortable when even moderately loaded. Strap a tripod on the side and... let's just say it doesn't get used often.
So, after much research, reading reviews, watching videos, looking at photos, I decided to build my own bag starting with the Hazard 4 Second Front backpack, and with a trip to the deserts of California and Arizona looming for later in the year, I decided on the coyote (tan) colour.
First up was to source some supplies.
Room for improvement, but I'm fairly pleased with my efforts for version 1.0.
I'd like to source some loop fabric and use that instead of the loop tape, which would improve the look of the bag, and also reduce the weight a bit.
