 As a photographer, it's not uncommon to travel to a shoot with 15-20 lbs of photo equipment between various camera bodies, lenses, tripod, battery packs etc. That might not seem that heavy, but lugging around the weight equivalent of 3 gallons of water can be a huge drag! Another drag would be lugging all that around in the rain.. which is what happened the day I met up with Chris and left with a Virginia Rucksack. He noticed that my canvas backpack was bursting at the seam with camera equipment and that my waterproof "pack-cover" wasn't doing a great job. He asked me to take the Virginia home and see how that worked for me. ... That was 7 months ago and I haven't given it back. The Virginia is super voluminous so it holds all of my essential camera gear  plus  a jacket if it starts to rain in sunny LA. The union of water-repellent waxed canvas and durable Horween tan leather makes it ideal for any trip that might scare any of my other bags. I love the Virginia and I'm not even slightly afraid to beat it up. It gets tossed on the ground, thrown into checked baggage on the plane, dragged along with me for most of my camping or hiking trips. Clearly, the Virginia is not an Osprey or Patagonia pack, it doesn't have the same benefits of the speciality backpacking packs, but it still seems to find its way on most of my trips due to its durability and capacity. Like most bags of this nature, the Virginia can be a little hard on the shoulders if you're wearing it fully loaded for long periods of time; but Chris is doing some R&D with my input in an effort to make the backpack a little more comfortable on long and heavy hauls. I can't wait for the next trip that requires the extra space of my Virginia, someplace with snow I hope!  Sandast Ambassador, Michael H. Los Angeles, CA
