Q: I was really inspired by your recent post about the things you guys use on a daily basis and it really got me thinking about the 20 year old Jansport bag I've been lugging around all this time. For one, my laptop and dSLR literally receive no protection aside from the cheap neoprene cases I put them in. Do you know any good bags that can hold both a laptop and a dSLR, while also providing plenty of protection?
A: Hey Miles,
We've definitely got your back covered in the bag department (no pun intended). Here are a few really nice ones we've seen on the web these past few months:
Incase recently released a their Ari Marcopoulos Camera Bag ($149), with plenty of space for your Macbook and mountains of film (if you still carry it) if needed. Available for preorder now.
Crumpler also makes a pretty sweet one. It has room for literally every dSLR piece of equipment we can think of. This one's the Customary Barge Deluxe ($295).
Finally, one of our all time favorites is Kata's Sensitivity V Camera and Laptop Backpack ($100), which has plenty of room for a laptop and a dSLR with a couple lenses and extra pocket for any other stuff you need to carry. We've owned this bag for about a year now and absolutely love it.
