Hi guys, so I've had a few people ask about my LowePro Photo Hatchback on IG, so I thought I would share a bit more and let you take a peak inside. My LowePro is one of the smaller versions of the hatchback, which is rather perfect for me because I'm kind of small and for the amount of gear I like to carry it works perfectly.
WHAT FITS IN MY PACK
- Nikon D300s w/35mm Lens
- Nikon D700 w/50mm Lens (it's counterpart)
- Instax Mini Polaroid
- Ipad mini
- Camera Accessories
- Pouch w/ goodies
- Hydro Flask
- Gorilla Pod
WHY I LOVE MY PACK
We originally picked out the hatchback because we needed a really good hiking pack and we loved it so much that we started carrying it every where. I took my pack to Colorado this year... I take my pack every time we go to New York City... it goes with me everywhere. The back of the pack and the shoulder straps are nicely padded. The Hatchback also has a chest and waist strap, which help distribute the weight. Even if I'm not using the chest and waist strap, the weight is evenly distributed and there are pockets for nearly everything.
The main camera compartment is on the back side of the pack and has extra padding for protection. I always put one of my cameras in the back compartment with a few accessories and the other camera goes inside the front compartment. For this trip I brought my mini instax, which fit nicely in the front compartment with one of my DSLRs. I am also able to get a small zip pouch, snacks, and more accessories packed away.
Another great thing about the Hatchback is that it cleans up great. There have been plenty of times we have returned from long sweaty hikes and I'm able to wipe down the pack and spray it with some febreze and it's good as new. What are some of you favorite camera packs? xoxo. Samantha
