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.
Though it looks like waxed canvas, the exterior is made by Cordura which I’m unfamiliar with. However, a bit of digging states that the material is a type of wool which promises to be weatherproof. Plus there’s a roll top, leather accents, quick access, a passport section, space for a tripod and a water bottle, and it can hold a 15 inch laptop. The bag also turns into a tote, which is really cool.
