The Pakk Promises to Be a Versatile and Stylish Backpack for Photographers

The Pakk is a brand new camera bag that is touting itself to be both functional and stylish–and of any company out there so far they seem to be the closest to getting it right. Peak Design, Vinta, ONA, WANDRD, and Langly all come close but they’re all missing one or two small things to make their bags absolutely flawless. However, the Pakk seems to be the backpack that every discerning photographer will want: on paper at least.

The 48Hr Switch, The Ultimate All-In-One Bag For Photographers?

The never ending struggle as a photographer is finding that perfect bag. The one that carries everything you need it to without a ton of wasted space, that also looks good and matches your unique style. The one that can double as a camera bag, or a travel bag when needed.

For most of us, we never really find the one bag that covers it all, instead resorting to multiple bags for each use. This is expensive and not very space efficient (just ask my wife) but, lucky for us, there is a new option on the horizon that could be the answer to all our prayers – The 48hr Switch.

Review: Vinta S Series Backpack Camera Bag

More and more, I’ve been leaning away from messenger bags and towards backpacks. No one has really gotten what I want perfectly, but some are close. When you consider what Vinta makes, the Vinta S series of backpacks seem very much in line with what lots of photographers would want. They’re stylish, minimal, low profile, and able to carry a fair amount of gear if you’re a mirrorless camera user. The company markets it to being used by outdoor and landscape photographers very often. But in real life use, it seems to be better for city trekkers.

Review: Hawkesmill Jermyn Street Camera Bag (Small)

Without a doubt, some of the most luxurious camera bags on the market are made in England by Hawkesmill. Not only are the bags luxurious, but they’re also built very well overall for the most part. With the new release of the smaller versions of the company’s larger bags, there have been a few changes. For example, the Hawkesmill Jermyn Street camera bag has a few new updates like the use of a hook system to keep the bag closed.

Otherwise though, it’s business as always: a beautiful bag that’s well built.

The Cosyspeed CAMSLINGER Streetomatic+ Can Hold Larger Mirrorless Cameras

Cosyspeed is a camera bag manufacturer that was initially known for creating some pretty suped up fanny packs for photographers. In some ways, they kind of are–but they’ve also evolved quite a bit with the company’s Streetomatic making a decent sling bag. Now, Cosyspeed is releasing their CAMSLINGER Streetomatic+. This is a camera bag that is a bit larger and designed to accommodate larger mirrorless cameras and even serious DSLRs without a grip and that have a lens attached.

What Cosyspeed has always valued is quick access to your camera, and for the most part they’ve done a pretty good job in their improvements over the years.

Review: Brevite Rolltop Camera Bag

Brevite got their start on Kickstarter a year or two back with their original backpack, which mimicked the look of that classic ‘Jansport’ school book bag. I used it regularly as my day trip bag for everything from business meetings to photoshoots; I loved its versatility and its overall build. (My one complaint was the plastic looking faux leather used.)

So when I got word that I was going to be getting a chance to checkout one of the companies new additions to their line, the Rolltop, I was excited to see what it had to offer. I have had this bag now for well over a month, and have used it for everything from day trips to local wildlife refuges to cross country air travel.

Today it is finally time to share my thoughts on the Brevite Rolltop, so lets get into it.
