I really like this new concept by Think Tank Photo. One of the reasons why I currently have a compact DSLR ("C-DSLR" as I would call it), is because I go hiking and take pictures (yes, I need to post my images on DigitalDingus!) and in addition to the essential hiking basics, a person can get weighed-down. These bags appear rather compact and TTP says: "...quick and unencumbered access to gear". I like this.
