    How do you get your gear to the field in style?

    I have been looking for a decent backpack for my FPV needs... I did pickup the standard "FPV pack" made popular a few years back, see video by Slowjet. I have been generally using this but never really liked it.

    Since I have had DJI products, I have had nice 5.11 packs for them, it has made life easier and gives me a "grab and go" solution that protects my investment... been searching for one that would meet my daily FPV needs.

    Any way, Strix just released a backpack, it is targeted at the quad guys, but I really like it. It isn't a genuine 5.11... but quality wise it is really close. It arrived this week and I will be taking it with me to the TCRC race this weekend for the "maiden voyage" so to speak. So far I am very impressed with it, as well as the accessories that it comes with.

    It is a little expensive at about $120, but in my opinion it is well worth the cost.

    My only complaint is that I would have preferred a lighter color, so that it doesn't absorb the sun and heat the contents up when in direct sunlight.

    Post up what you guys use!
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    All you need is a good Camera Backpack and some Snowshoes.
