    I have the super trekker, and it work great for 8x10 - holds my Zone VI ultralight, 3 lenses, meter, filters, DSLR body and 3 lenses, and in the daypack, I carry 6 8x10 film holders. I have a second bag I carry my other 4 holders is. I don't carry my tripod on the back (it is a heavy manfrotto 075) but when I replace that with a Carbon Fibre, I will shift to having the tripod on the bag too.

    Well, I've been looking for this exact pack (since I'll be trekking my 8x10 around NZ hills and terrain with my bad back). I did some shopping and just bought one!

    Adorama- 389.00
    B&H- 389.00
    EBAY- Buy Now, New 279.00!

    Good ole Ebay

    Here's my dissenting opinion. I have a Lowepro Pro Trekker, which has the same suspension as the super trekker. Coming from a mountaineering background, the suspension on the pack sucks. I've started carrying my gear in a regular old rucksack by dana design. I'm also in the market for a good padding system. I have my eye on the dividers from pelican cases.
    Facts are facts; however, perception is reality.

    I didn't think it would be the same suspension since their advertising brags that compared to the Pro Trekker the Super Trekker AWII was recently rebuilt from the ground up.

    "Super Trekker AW II went back to the drawing board. The result? A great-looking, virtually new pack with new, hi-tech materials and lots of extra features. An improved harness system — the most advanced technical harness system of any camera pack — includes an adjustable expedition-quality harness with an internal frame, load adjustment straps, CollarCut shoulder straps, quick-adjust waistbelt, and many comfort "

    With luck I can manipulate the insides to take a Wisner 12x20 at some point in the future. I ordered one a few days ago from the same company in Ebay as you did Sean. My f64 is spent! No one who regularly backpacks with an 8x10 should buy that bag - it simply disintegrates after some heavy use. I am excited to get the ST AWII as I now have a few more lenses I need with me in the field.
