I've been looking around and searching for posts regarding what others in AK use to protect their DSLR cameras.
I will be heading to AK this summer and I have purchased a new Canon 60D with a kit lens. I have been looking at some waterproof (class 3) backpacks as well as the camera specific options such as the Lowepros, Think-tanks, and Tamracs.
My primary need is to protect my camera from moisture. I work for a boat manufacturer and spend many hours on boats, offshore fishing, and would like to get something that will serve me well in the offshore saltwater environment as well as while I'm in Alaska.
We will be RVing for two weeks and fishing from shorelines almost all the time. I am thinking maybe a waterproof backpack that I can use as a carry-on that will hold my camera (plus other gear) and buying a holster style case for the camera. This would give me a holster for off-water use and protection (padding) while in the backpack.
I figure I can keep the pack and camera on my back while wading/fishing.
So am I crazy? Is there a solution that will not require a $300-$400 backpack? What are others' using?
