I am travelling on a hiking holiday in a couple of months time and need some suggestions from my wonderful friends here. I have a shoulder camera bag which is great but as we will be walking (10-20km/day) up and down hills, I think a backpack would be better.
I will be carrying my Nikon D300 with 18-200mm lens attached and will also be carrying my 11-16mm lens and probably another 1 or 2?? depending on weight. Other items include water and water bottles (Summer), jacket (for cool morning starts etc), passport, wallet and other basic items etc etc. Not sure about the tripod. I have a lightweight carbon one which is great for travel but I am 52 now (in body) although my mind has not realised this yet lol. This may stay in my pack which is being transported between hotels.
Any suggestions ladies? I will need something that can be locked with a padlock.
PS I am going hiking in Bulgaria so if anyone has any suggestions specific to this location, please let me know.
