The ONE Backpack is a bit of a weird one–it’s a backpack for sure but then it also comes with a hard protective shell sort of like a turtle. Their Kickstarter marketing campaign is pitching it to be fashionable in some circles like the Urban Wear circuit. The ONE is designed by two architects, and when it isn’t in turtle mode, the bag has a polygonal shape to it. The main objective: protection for your gear on the inside. While it isn’t being specifically pitched as a camera bag, it’s being pitched as something for the everyday worker who happens to also have camera gear with them. Though when using the shell, it could be one of the best protected backpacks available.
Perhaps the best thing about the ONE is that it doesn’t look like a camera bag, but it’s sure to also stand out due to its specific shape. However, the designers state that there are lots of anti-theft protection implementations incorporated into the design. Of course, we could also easily say that maybe this whole “Keeping my gear safe” thing is going a bit too far. If you’re a city dweller, then you’re going to be very conscious of your gear at all times. And if someone is too close to you, you tend to move away or get on your guard. In those situations where you put your bag down though, things can be a bit different. Though if a thief really wants to get into your bag, they’ll find a way.
