I have a bag problem. It's rivaled only by my shoes and my jacket problems. I collect the things. I throw away too much money every year on the quest for the perfect bag for travel, or every day, or evening, or conventions. I have four different bags just for lugging my camera equipment around. But I only have one backpack in regular use (the other is from high school and covered in X-Files quotes). It's specifically a backpack for cameras, and unless I need to haul a multitude of lenses around it never leaves my closet.

We hold our backpacks to the same high standards as everything else we review and buy, and while we'd like to pick a "best backpack," we know it's impossible to make one pick that fits everyone's style, budget, body type, and carrying needs.

It's just too bad this one doesn't actually play games.
