We’ve examined rather a lot of digital camera baggage. 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 considered one of my (Jaina) private favorites for on a regular basis carry or heading out for a day of taking pictures. It comes with versatile dividers you may alter or take away, relying on how a lot group or cupboard space 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 digital camera. If you want room for extra lenses or a bigger digital camera physique, you would possibly wish to forego the MacBook; it might 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 favored the designs from Wotancraft, and the Scout is not any completely different. It’s fabricated from sturdy Cordura with some cowhide leather-based thrown in for the straps on the flap. The foremost 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 best way of group right here. There is a baggage pass-through and a rear zippered pocket, however no facet pockets and no simple strategy to connect a tripod.
Tenba Fulton V2 16L Backpack for $140: I actually choose baggage which have some strategy to shortly seize the digital camera, and that is why the Fulton V2 is not larger above: The solely strategy to pull out digital camera gear is by taking the bag off and unzipping the again compartment. (Technically, you may entry this compartment from the roll prime, however that requires undoing lots of Velcro.) Otherwise, it is a good, small bag that may match an excellent quantity of substances, with an expandable roll prime to retailer lunch or spare garments, a stretchable mesh facet pocket for bottles, and a canvas facet pocket that may match small tripods. Tenba says this may match a 16-inch laptop computer within the padded compartment on the entrance, however I may solely squeeze a 13-incher. It’s water resistant and cozy 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 excellent for brief outings, with loads of padding and a divider to maintain your gear protected. You’ll solely have the ability to match a digital camera and one additional 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 facet pockets are too tight to suit something greater than a pen or a microfiber material. One perk? You can shortly detach the strap to show the Bowery right into a digital camera dice for an even bigger backpack. It is available in an array of colours and supplies.
