A dedicated bottom compartment can be swung around from your back to give you instant access to your DSLR and up to three lenses. Locked into place inside the backpack, this rotating belt pack can be accessed by lifting a nifty magnetic connector. 

You can even separate the beltpack to wear it separately on shorter outings. It has enough space to pack your camera, a 10” tablet, binoculars, and much more. 

Or combine it with the backpack; the main storage compartment will give you additional room to carry clothes, climbing gear, and a laptop.

What started out as a Kickstarter campaign has become one of the most successful camera bags of the decade.

The Wandrd Prvke 31 is exceptionally stylish but most notable for the fact that it doesn’t look like a camera bag at all. Combining elegant design with durability, the Prvke features subtle branding and colours, a heavy-duty, wipe-clean tarpaulin construction, and waterproof zippers. 

The adaptable bag has a roll-top compartment that can be easily expanded and compressed. In fact, with the roll-top fully extended, it can hold up to 36 litres. 

A removable camera cube makes the bag easy to tailor to your needs, with three different access points throughout the bag helping to keep it easy to use on the go. 

With a big zipped front pocket, a small hidden back pocket (great for stashing your passport), and a fleece-lined laptop compartment, this bag is a joy to use.
