Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack
B&H has the Tamrac 5374 Adventure 74 Backpack available for $59.95 with free expedited shipping. Regularly $109.95.
 
Note from Sean: I own and use one of these backpacks all the time. When I want to carry most of my gear, I take the Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x. But for all other times, I pack what I need into a Tamrac 5374 and hit the road running. It's been a very good bag for the outings that require less gear.
 
Don't get me wrong, though – you can stuff quite a bit into one of these bags. For my latest trip to Atlanta, GA, I planned on filming our family Christmas get-together with my DSLR gear yet I also wanted to be prepared to capture static images as well (just in case). Here's what I packed into the Tamrac 5374:
 
  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II with Battery Grip
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Battery Grip
  • Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L Tilt-Shift
  • Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
  • Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
  • Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
  • Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC
  • Canon 580EX Speedlite
  • Canon TC-80N3 Timer Remote
  • BlackRapid RS-Sport Extreme Strap
  • ND Filter and Step-up Rings
  • Flash Gels
  • Gaffer Tape
  • Microfiber Cloth
As you can see, this backpack can hold a decent amount of gear. ;-)
