Does any one have a suggestion for a decently padded back pack that can be adapted to carry a Crown Graflex, 6 or so film carriers, a few filters and other small "do-dads" and a tripod straped to the outside? Probably DON'T need room for a any large flash equipment. Thanks.

as for me I broke my back & NO langer us a back pack
I am looking at making a 2wheeler pack of some kind
I have tryed some AND small wheels DON'T work very good
I now have wheels off of a golf bag to try they are wide but
not tall looking as to using a tripod as part of the frame

Take a look at the Tamrac 750 and Tamrac 752 Photo Back Packs. They are well padded, partitioned, and the straps transfer the weight to the hips. I have one for my Hasselblad, one for my Pacemaker Speed Graphic and one for my Graflex Model D.

I use / recommend Backpacks from

http://www.photobackpacker.com/home.asp

Very comfortable to wear, easy access to gear and they allow strapping a tripod to the side. With 40# of gear in one it's cpmfy enough to walk miles in.

The variety of containers allows the BP to be used from MF to 8x10.

The pack I use is the TAMRAC Adventure 10-loads of room, well padded, comfortable (it's going to be my one "personal" bag on our flight to Provence) and very well built.

I've used the Tamrac 757 (see http://www.tristatecamera.com/lookat.php?sku=TAM757GY) for many years and consider it the best combination carry bag/backpack on the market. BTW, the photos in the link don't show the capacious space underneath the rounded top compartment; this space is where I carry my Century, two rollfilm backs, light meter, and cable release, with the darkcloth in the top compartment. There are plenty of pockets, including two on the side where all the filters and extra lenses (separately bagged) go. Try one, I think you'll like it. And that price from Tri-State looks good, too (disclaimer: I have no connection to either Tamrac or Tri-State).

Afterthought: the 757 has straps to hold your tripod!
