Bags I use

The North Face Recon serves me best on my hikes, but recently I starting using the Ruggard Commando Pro 75 DSLR Shoulder Bag as shown below for walkaround local stuff. I would never take it on a mountain hike due to form factor, but I am really liking it for short trips from the car.

It’s fliptop and generous compartments are handy for short walk-around stuff where I want to set the bag down and be able to quickly set down or extra a lens from the nicely padded foam interior. I can also set it down on wet stuff or dirt. The Laptop sleeve fits 15" MacBook Pro (not shown), and that maxes out the height of the bag. The shoulder strap carries it for walkaround. It’s on the large side, but that’s what I like about it.

I’m about ready to give up on the very poor quality of the iPhone 7 Plus 2X camera. This image is barely usable even for web, at least to my standards.

The Arco Video Dr. Bag 30 is wider and narrower, but a bit less deep but has more pockets and other features for video haul and carry. For my needs, I prefer theRuggard Commando Pro; the Arco is awkward for carrying on a shoulder, though it may be very good for other purposes.
