Photo Backpacks

Photo backpacks - maximum comfort in all weathers


A photo backpack can be incredibly practical for photographers who carry a lot of equipment on their travels and also want to store it safely. There are a variety of different photo backpacks that have different special features. To help you find out exactly what to look for when buying, we will try to give you a few tips below.

What should you look for when buying a photo backpack?

The first thing to note is that your new photo backpack should be made of the highest quality materials possible, which make the backpack durable. After all, it contains very valuable and sometimes easily breakable items. Size is also important. A larger backpack holds more equipment, but more equipment means more weight. For example, the following might be in the backpack of a professional photographer: The camera with an attached lens, a tripod, several replacement lenses, a remote shutter release, several spare batteries and memory cards, cleaning supplies and a flash.

In order to be able to carry this equipment and the corresponding weight well, it is helpful if your backpack has wide carrying straps to distribute the resulting weight better over your back and shoulders. Furthermore, storage space that is as flexible as possible and several compartments are very practical in order to be able to individually adjust where your equipment is located in the backpack.

What are the advantages of a photo backpack?

A photo backpack offers you several advantages, but it is not a must for every photographer and every situation. The most important advantage is that you can carry all the items that are or could become important during photography. With extensive equipment, the backpack can quickly become quite heavy, but at least it is much more practical than a camera bag, for example.

Due to the fact that photo equipment can quickly become relatively expensive in its entirety, theft protection is an important aspect. Many photo backpacks can only be opened from the back, virtually from the side that faces the back when carried, making it far more difficult for thieves to steal from such backpacks.

Another important aspect is carrying comfort. This can be promoted, for example, by additional padding on the shoulder straps. Furthermore, it is also important that the backpack is ergonomically shaped on the back, because especially if you are going to wear the backpack for a longer period of time, such a design pays off. When choosing a backpack, pay attention to your body size and especially that the carrying straps are tight enough so that the backpack sits comfortably on your back. Your health will thank you for it, guaranteed.

If your model of choice also has a chest strap, you should also make sure that this strap is height-adjustable. This makes it possible to wear the backpack over thinner clothing as well as under winter clothing.

What material should the photo backpack be made of?

First of all, it is very important that you choose a robust and water-repellent material. Especially if you are going on hiking tours, you should make sure that the material is also abrasion-resistant. Another point regarding the material is that the zips are made in such a way that they do not let water into the inside of the backpack. If you are worried about heavy rain, you should also take a special rain cover with you, as this is guaranteed to protect your camera and other accessories from the rain.

A good photo backpack is usually made of robust, water-repellent material to ensure the highest possible protection. In addition, make sure that the backpack is abrasion-resistant and rubberised at the bottom so that neither dirt nor moisture can penetrate the fabric. This is indispensable, especially on hiking tours. This applies not only to the surface, but also to the zips.

And if you have taken everything into account but nature still throws a spanner in the works, it is important that the backpack is as easy to clean as possible.
