    Trunk for DSLr?

    I want to start bringing my DSLr with me habitually, but I hate anything on my back. Thinking of getting a seatpost rack with a trunk of some sort. Has anyone found a pack which will protect the camera (falls notwithstanding), yet make it easy and quick to grab when I spot that Eagle soaring overhead?

    Edit: My bad, this should probably be over in photography... admin please feel free to move.

    My Ortlieb Ultimate handlebar bag came with a padded separator to keep body and lenses separate.

    Pretty sure the Ultimate 5 has just recently been superseded by the Ultimate 6

    Cass Gilbert (While Out Riding | Dirt road adventures across the Americas) is a mountain bike fiend and DSLR user, you might prowl through some of his gear lists or just leave a comment on a blog post in hopes he'll reply. Either way you may find out what he's found effective for carrying a big heavy camera on a mountain bike.

    If you need bombproof get the smallest Pelican case that your gear will fit, bungee strap it to the rack. Easy to access and even a crash is no problem. I've dsone this with a rangefinder and three lenses in all kinds of extreme conditions and enjoyed having not to worry about my gear no matter what. It's not the lightest solution but lots of bang for the minimal extra weight.
    A Useful Bear is a handy thing.
