Digital camera backpacks have advanced, and we’re now attending to see a collection of trendy, purposeful digicam luggage which can be far departed from custom.
The Wandrd Prvke 31 mixes a cool city model with off the overwhelmed monitor perform and utilises supplies equally at dwelling in each environments.
Beginning with the outside, the fabric is hard, providing water safety. Whereas the bag isn’t 100% waterproof, it does supply a protect towards heavy downpours.
The outer materials can also be extremely powerful, and there’s loads of internal padding, making certain your kits safety.
Checking over the bag and one of many factors in regards to the redesign is that Wandrd has labored arduous on the consolation of the straps and again panel. Positive sufficient, attempting the bag on, and it does really feel snug and supportive.
I wasn’t that eager on the texture of the earlier model because of the small door within the again panel. Simply as a notice.
On the outside, there’s additionally loads of loops for equipment; Wandrd sells a wide variety of strap options in addition to further bag equipment. Try the orange straps; they give the impression of being phenomenal.
Taking a look at entry choices, you may have aspect entry once you swing the bag round your proper shoulder.
You may also undergo the highest, though I’d be tempted to maintain this for private results resembling a coat.
The one touch upon the design is the highest strap; this strap is comprised of webbing materials and options a big steel buckle on high. It appears nice, however it’s good to make certain it’s hooked and safe correctly. Most of the time, I’d discover it dangling throughout the again of the pack, not a serious concern.
Contained in the pack is a modular part that’s inserted into the bag to create the digicam divides. Its lid could be folded again so you possibly can entry the package simply. In fact, if you wish to use the Prvke as a typical non-photo day pack, all it’s good to do is take away the module, with package, and go away it at dwelling. As in case you’d do this!
It’s a pleasant characteristic to have and provides you loads of choices. Establishing the internal module, you possibly can flip excessive and backside part lids to allow simple again and high entry as you require.

Good in case you stay right here within the UK.
Positive sufficient, it does fold out properly, and there’s a collection of pockets on the again, together with these for a laptop computer and pill. You’ll be able to simply match each.
Package in, zipped and put in over the shoulders, and the bag is surprisingly snug. The straps are good and huge, however for me, the one factor letting down the consolation barely was the again panel. It’s snug however not fairly as snug as another backpacks I’ve examined not too long ago.
Total preliminary impressions are good, so loading the pack with two Sony A7’s outfitted with 24-70mm and 12-24mm, a ProFoto A1X flash, and as ever a bag of canine treats, I head out.
