Can a DSLR fit in a Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack?
I had trouble finding a definitive answer to a question that needed answering before I selected which Maxpedition Versipack to buy. Which one will fit my DSLR, camcorder, flash unit and a few other things for travel? Colossus? Mongo? Jumbo?
In fact, I spoke to a couple people who said a jumbo would never work and had put the colossus in the internet shopping cart more than once before canceling. Finally I decided to take a run out to a dealer. The closest one was about 45 minutes south. 10-8 Police supply in Santa Clara has a pretty good display with many of the more common models and sizes in stock and on display.
I brought my camera and gear with me so that I could see what physically could fit and even though it was a tight squeeze, the regular jumbo Versipack was a winner.
It turned out I had a cheap slr/lens case in the closet, which by itself was never low key or comfortable enough, but made an excellent liner for the camera in the Versipack.
In the video I show a simple unloading and reloading of the pack.
I hope that if you’ve been considering a gear bag to carry your photo gear and wanted a Maxpedition, that this is of some help to you.
