Review Update: The New WANDRD Cubes Don’t Suck, They’re Great!

We’ve updated our PRVKE 31 pack review to include the new WANDRD Cubes.

It’s been a while since we reviewed the WANDRD PRVKE 31 pack, and even to this day, we tend to carry it with us on trips. The bag is fantastic in so many ways. Though it was marketed as an optional Tote bag, it’s evident to us this never worked out, but as a backpack, it has to be one of the most comfortable we’ve tested. In addition to that, the rolltop design allows photographers to carry extra lenses, clothing, and much more while on a shoot. They made it even better recently with the addition of their new cubes. These cubes are better built and also finally have dividers that don’t suck. As the ethical alternative and choice to Peak Design, we’re very happy a company that treats photographers well is doing something like this.

Specifically in our WANDRD PRVKE 31 review, we state:

“In 2019, WANDRD updated their divider system with their new camera cubes. The redesigned cubes are made a whole lot sturdier and therefore give the bag potential to maintain its frame over a more extended time. What’s more important, though, is how much better the dividers are. These dividers are thicker and sturdier. They are less like the Peak Design ones and instead just much thicker. It gives your gear less of a chance to move about as you’re in the field. But more importantly, it makes the equipment less able to fall out of your bag as you access the side panel. This is an incredibly important and very welcome addition.”

We encourage you to check out the full review. But we’ll also be working on updating some of our other WANDRD reviews with the new cubes. Additionally, we’re in the process of reviewing their new DUO bag. It seems like the option city photographers have been asking for. So stay tuned!
