I use a Jansport backpack that you can get at the local sporting goods store. It's got a large upper compartment a medium lower compartment and two front smaller compartments + water warter bottle holders on either side (these also work great for holding a light stand). on the lower part of the pack their are straps that are designed for bed roles but I use it to attach my tripod to the pack. All total I carry 80 to 90 lbs of gear and this pack works really well.
