Hiking/Travel Backpack for the C100?

I'm looking on taking my C100 on hikes and was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for one that can hold the body, 2-3 lenses, and ideally a sticks/slider.

I wouldn't mind an actual hiking pack but I'm not too familiar with them.

The company fstopgear.com makes lightweight backpack with a solid internal frame that you can attach an icu (internal camera unit device that ranges in size. Really well constructed and designed for what you are talking about.

Ah great thanks. I'd love to pre order the Loka UL but do you know if their packs allow you to strap a slider to the back?

Edward,
I first learned about the bags reading Jonah Kessel's blog and about his using the c100. He has a gear page.

GEAR | JONAH M. KESSEL

He would could give you a better answer than I about carrying a slider. Or contact f-stop gear. The company always seems to be evolving and this may be something it might be interested in as a way to improve one of its bags.

BebopBag in London are making a special C100 backpack that will carry the camera fully assembled, an extra lens, plus power and 'bits'.

Re: Hiking/Travel Backpack for the C100?

After a through search for backpacks for c100, I got this one and very happy with it. My main reason to select this one was ability to carry the camera fully assembled (including top handle and a lens attached (L24-105). In addition to the camera, it accommodates three more lenses, two batteries, battery charger, cables, microphones and more. The divider options are limited, you need to be creative to make it work for your needs. There is a place to attach tripod on it but I don't know whether it will accommodate a slider. I carry my tripod separately in a tripod bag with a shoulder strap.

Re: Hiking/Travel Backpack for the C100?

I've been using a Tom Bihn Brain bag with my C100 for a while now, and it's awesome. The C100 fully rigged out goes in the front part, and 3-4 lenses go in the back part, and a tripod and slider go in the Quivers attached to the sides.

Here's my full blog post on this setup: Complete Documentary Filmmaking Kit in One Backpack | Alaska Video Shooter

It's not as roomy as the F-stop bags, but it's sized for carry-on restrictions, I use the quivers to carry other things like a Kessler Traveler Jib or an Ice Light and stand.

Re: Hiking/Travel Backpack for the C100?

Got my F Stop Loka with a large pro ICU over the weekend and tested it all day yesterday. It's absolutely amazing an allows me to pack my C100 with a QR plate (no handle/external mic attached). 4 lenses (1 attached to the body), batteries, Zacuto C100 Z Finder, and more in the top panel pockets!

The hip and shoulder strap adjustability allows you to easily transfer weight if you're standing, or when you're moving. This pack can even emulate the Mindshift rotation motions by doing this method:

I was able to securely strap a Manfrotto 755cx3 with a 561 head and Manfrotto Monopod as well. I tried attaching a Kessler slider but it shifted the center of gravity too much in the side pockets.

I am VERY pleased with the pack so far.

Re: Hiking/Travel Backpack for the C100?

I have the big f-stop pack and it is awesome. The C100 is a tight fit, but I got it configured pretty well after a while.
This pack is at least as well made and designed as my Osprey backpack that I use when carrying everything except a camera. Very impressed and the folks there are nice and helpful. Expensive but woirth every cent. I have tried other packs but none of them were made to hike (or ski or climb, etc.).
