We’ve examined rather a lot of digicam luggage. Here are others that we actually like however which were eclipsed by our prime picks.
Peak Design Everyday Sling for $159: The Everyday Sling has lengthy been one among my (Jaina) private favorites for on a regular basis carry or heading out for a day of capturing. It comes with versatile dividers you possibly can modify or take away, relying on how a lot group or space for storing you want. It is available in 3-, 6-, and 10-liter sizes. The 10-liter model has room for a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a charger, and my FujiFilm X-Pro 2 digicam. If you want room for added lenses or a bigger digicam physique, you would possibly need to forego the MacBook; it could actually get a bit tight in there.
Wotancraft Scout Daily Camera Bag 9L for $299: If you are after a trendy messenger, I’ve all the time preferred the designs from Wotancraft, and the Scout is not any completely different. It’s product of sturdy Cordura with some cowhide leather-based thrown in for the straps on the flap. The essential compartment is spacious and separated by sturdy dividers, together with a padded laptop computer pouch that may simply barely match a 13-inch MacBook Air. There are two pouches within the entrance that may loosely carry some small gadgets, however there’s not a lot in the way in which of group right here. There is a baggage pass-through and a rear zippered pocket, however no aspect pockets and no straightforward strategy to connect a tripod.
Tenba Fulton V2 16L Backpack for $140: I actually want luggage which have some strategy to rapidly seize the digicam, and that is why the Fulton V2 is not greater above: The solely strategy to pull out digicam gear is by taking the bag off and unzipping the again compartment. (Technically, you possibly can entry this compartment from the roll prime, however that requires undoing a variety of Velcro.) Otherwise, it is a good, small bag that may match quantity of drugs, with an expandable roll prime to retailer lunch or spare garments, a stretchable mesh aspect pocket for bottles, and a canvas aspect pocket that may match small tripods. Tenba says this could match a 16-inch laptop computer within the padded compartment on the entrance, however I may solely squeeze a 13-incher. It’s waterproof and comfortable to tote round.
Ona The Bowery Compact Messenger Bag for $209: I’ve owned this bag (the black waxed-canvas model) for seven years, and it stays in nice form. It’s enticing and good for brief outings, with loads of padding and a divider to maintain your gear protected. You’ll solely have the ability to match a digicam and one further lens. There’s a pouch on the again I’ve used to stow a Nintendo Switch or a Kindle, and I shove my cables, batteries, and SD playing cards within the pouch on the entrance. Unfortunately, the 2 aspect pockets are too tight to suit something larger than a pen or a microfiber fabric. One perk? You can rapidly detach the strap to show the Bowery right into a digicam dice for an even bigger backpack. It is available in an array of colours and supplies.
Lowepro PhotoSport Outdoor Backpack III 15L for $190: This pack solely seems to be good on the path and can solely match a small DSLR or mirrorless in its detachable dice (with aspect entry!).
