In this episode of non-photo tech for photographers we look at non photo backpacks. Many of us also own camera bags photo backpacks with all of the pockets and sections for cameras, lens and other gear and these bags are great except one thing, they scream photographer and depending on where you are that could also be screaming rob me. A regular backpack can help you fly under the radar and still keep your gear protected inside. Thats where the Lewis N. Clark Waterproof Day Pack comes into play.
Good: The Lewis N. Clark Day Pack is waterproof. The bag is TPU coated so even if you are out walking in the rain your gear inside is going to remain dry.
Good: The bag has a massive top loading opening so you can easily fit in lots of gear and large gear with no trouble.
Good: It has adjustable sternum straps so you can comfortably carry whatever load you have in the bag.
Good: It has a large easy to access front pocket to carry memory cards, batteries and other accessories.
Bad: Its not designed as a camera bag so there is not much cushion as photographers are accustom to with camera bags so I would recommend just keeping a rolled towel or a spare shirt at the bottom of the bag to provide a little cushion against impact if you set your camera down hard and forget you gear in there.
Bad: I wish there was an inside pocket that I could easily store my wallet and phone or other valuables but the inside is one large compartment which is great but also easy to lose stuff in the giant compartment.
