The TrekPak system uses a unique design of panels that are connected with clips, allowing you to completely customize your bag or Pelican case to the exact size you need for your gear. What’s even better is that while we’re using their standard Deuter backpack system, TrekPak has systems that work with Pelican cases and even ‘RolliPaks’ that you can use to retrofit your existing backpack or bag.
You can see how I’ve configured the backpack to handle all of our gear, with the DSLR taking top spot. I use standard felt bags to hold smaller items and keep things organized, and most of the time I can get to the item I need very quickly. My intention was to carry the bag through the halls at SEMA show, but in reality this is a great system for hiking / outdoor work (it fits great in the back of the FJ), but isn’t the best for tradeshows since space is such an issue.
So far I have about 100 hours into this setup, and it’s worked out perfectly. I’ve re-arranged the components a few times and I’m thinking of adding a TrekPak RolliPak to my messenger bag for event work where I don’t need all my gear with me.
