    Nice douche! > 5:17

  2. SeditiousOrange on July 17, 2018 at 8:28 am

    What is the best solution for bringing you gear on a trip where you will already be travelling with a backpack, not a suitcase?

  3. Porkin Mcnugget on July 17, 2018 at 8:28 am

    Have you tried or heard about compagnon backpack? It is stylish and can carry a lot of camera gear you should try it out!!!

  4. Survive Travel on July 17, 2018 at 8:28 am

    Cool vid. Subscribe to my videos too. Cheers 😛 http://bit.ly/2IgEpyT

  5. Daniel Chiu on July 17, 2018 at 8:31 am

    good lord that shin is huge lol but great video!

  6. Uyan Tien on July 17, 2018 at 8:31 am

    I bought Peak Design 31l, it suits me perfectly. Maybe because i just have one camera + 2 lenses, and gives me so much freedom to add whatever i want on the outside.

  7. E. Rivera Badger on July 17, 2018 at 8:31 am

    Those are awesome bags. Thanks for the video, so helpful. I’m currently looking for a new camera bag. This video came just in time.

  8. Su Merget on July 17, 2018 at 8:32 am

    The waist strap was missed in the commentary and also that the bag’s dividers have pop sections which makes for about 9 compartments. Watch the videos on the Peak Design website.

  9. Ryan on July 17, 2018 at 8:33 am

    I used a Lowepro Rover AW over 10yrs ago and, despite the fact that it did its job, I didn’t really like it. The Lowepro Primus Minimus though (discontinued now) is a brilliant bag if you’re using one body and have 2-3 other lenses plus usual accessories. Has plenty of room for a jumper, water, travel docs, etc and the zippers/openings are mostly protected or back facing. It has a side opening compartment for quick access. I’ve done 2 international trips with this bag and countless domestic ones and it’s a great design for having access to all my travel needs at my finger tips.

    These days, I’ve gone mirrorless and have transitioned to camera bags that snuggly fit my camera with lens attached so I can put it in any day pack and also have it over my shoulder. It’s light enough to not be a burden and small enough to easily put away when I’m not shooting. The Lowepro Munich 100 and Format 120 are good, cheap cases for such a set up. This is what I like when using my 75L travel backpack with 25L day pack.

  10. Liam Taylor on July 17, 2018 at 8:33 am

    Can the sukha go on carry on? 🙂

  11. Sal Ada on July 17, 2018 at 8:35 am

    LOL Marco at the beginning of the video 😂

  12. Michael Angelo H. on July 17, 2018 at 8:38 am

    Camera cubes are extra convenient to swipe.

  13. payamace on July 17, 2018 at 8:38 am

    Hi, Is it possible to take the fstop 50l as a carry-on luggage into planes?

  14. MKPV on July 17, 2018 at 8:41 am

    Vinta S bags looks the best, it does not look like a camera bag at all. Fashion at its finest. You are correct about the negatives but technically youre able to place a tripod either on the side of the bag or the bottom straps (optional feature). Another good to review though is the Hexbrand Camera bags.

  15. CarlosVanVegas on July 17, 2018 at 8:42 am

    Will you be reviewing the Shimoda bags soon?

  16. andrew landerman on July 17, 2018 at 8:43 am

    kanken camera bag

  17. Anthony Awaken on July 17, 2018 at 8:45 am

    Nice list, guys! There are quite a few that I hadn’t heard of 🙂

    My favorite bags are (ranging from large to small):
    • Large: Lowepro ProTactic 450 and Kelty Redwing 50L (with a camera cube)
    • Medium: Recycled Firefighter 12 Hour Bag (with small camera cube) and Vanguard Alta Rise 45
    • Smallish: ThinkTank Turnstyle 10, Vanguard Discover 38 and I’m currently testing the Signature 10 from ThinkTank…I have high hopes for it 👍🏻

    PS: I have the Mountain Pack from Topo Designs and it’s really well made + very functional. But the shoulder straps do cause quite a bit of strain, even with minimal weight. The hip belt doesn’t offer much relief either.

  18. Andreas Oxinos on July 17, 2018 at 8:46 am

    Peak design one does have a waist strap dude 🙂

  19. DutchGamer on July 17, 2018 at 8:46 am

    i need a bag for 1 camera body 2 lenses and a tripod a laptop and some school books

    it neads to be cheap

  20. Aspen Knight on July 17, 2018 at 8:46 am

    Anything BELOW $101.00 for us poor folks & students?

  21. Diego Marcano on July 17, 2018 at 8:47 am

    Liked and subscribed. Hero video, helpful and precisely what I’ve been looking for. Many people that make these videos have a complete studio and work as producers doing exclusively that. I’m looking for a all round travel-camera bag and this was so accurate. Thanks! Keep on the good work.

  22. Megan Feichtel on July 17, 2018 at 8:49 am

    You should look into Brevite backpacks! 👍

  23. Y&S FOOD! on July 17, 2018 at 8:51 am

    Wonderful video clip! Sitting here at Y&S FOOD! we all love to run across these types of contents. We create Travel & Food shows too, anywhere in the world, and we are always searching for inspirations as well as concepts. Thank You.

  24. Kendall B on July 17, 2018 at 8:51 am

    Random I know, but anyone know what boots those are at 11:54 ?

  25. Seth Hughes on July 17, 2018 at 8:53 am

    Have you ever had issues taking the Sukha on as hand luggage? Fstop stays their 40L Ajna is the carry on compatible one.
    Thanks 🙂

  26. G&M Media-Design on July 17, 2018 at 8:54 am

    How is the Sukha Carry On compatible?

  27. ShangleLP on July 17, 2018 at 8:54 am

    a very helpful video, thx 🙂

  28. Corbin LeGrand on July 17, 2018 at 8:56 am

    In a pinch, sock caps/beanies make great camera and lens protection in any bag. Also, very cheap.

  29. dpanch_89 on July 17, 2018 at 8:59 am

    What about Atlaspack or Shimoda design?

  30. Curt Gerston on July 17, 2018 at 8:59 am

    Good reviews of the bags…couple of corrections about the peak design everyday bag, though, which I have: it does expand 8 liters, but it expands from 12L to 20L…the “20L” name is for the max capacity. And, it does have a hip belt, tucked away in the side water-bottle pockets. It’s not padded but it’s better than nothing.

  31. Shots of Jameson on July 17, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Great reviews thanks guys! Major help and I ended up with the peak designs everyday. I’ve been really overwhelmed with options but this was huge. Thanks again!

  32. George Robinson on July 17, 2018 at 9:08 am

    I use Osprey Kamber with ICUs, finally found the set-up I’ve been looking for! My Clik Elite backpacks are now just resting in my closet. The Kamber is a backcountry snowsport pack, and does not look like a camera bag for security.

  33. vomillicious on July 17, 2018 at 9:08 am

    the second bag (peak design ) have a waste strap. it’s hidden in a pocket at the front kinda under the bag.

  34. Enan Fu on July 17, 2018 at 9:08 am

    I think the Lowepro Hatchbag is also very good for travel, especially with a mirrorless system. It fits a Sony a7 series camera with a 16-35gm and three other prime lenses. The ICU is also detachable, and you can only open from the back which can prevent fro’ theft. It’s super lightweight, and you still can fit many daily essentials in the upper storage space.

  35. Galab Sharma on July 17, 2018 at 9:09 am

    how about lowepro protactic 450 Aw?

  36. Christoff Busschots on July 17, 2018 at 9:12 am

    I’m all into rolltops, so can you do a comparison of these? 😀
    – Brevite Rolltop
    – Thule Covert

  37. Photorocket on July 17, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Nice and informative video. You showed some very nice bags I may get one for a second one. My all-time favorite and what I use all the time for all my gear is a MindShift gear rotation 180 professional.

  38. Samski on July 17, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Thank you for sharing! You are very talented. I really like to travel too:)I just shared my first ever video – My holiday diary in Queenstown. Eep!Would certainly enjoy your observations on my video/editing thus I could develop like you!

  39. 2wheelAdv on July 17, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Great video, saw some bags I hadn’t heard about. What do you guys think about the Wandrd travel bags?

  40. Spanish and Go on July 17, 2018 at 9:12 am

    I’m a huge fan of Peak designs stuff and have been eyeing one of their camera backpacks for awhile now. Thanks for reviewing it here! Great stuff as usual guys. -Jim

  41. Anthony F. on July 17, 2018 at 9:15 am

    Mindshift Professional Deluxe 180 degree rotation camera bag…check that out…it is awesome

  42. Guido N on July 17, 2018 at 9:17 am

    There is no way that the Sukha is international carry-on compatible. It’s way beyond the published carry on sizes of ANY airline.

  43. Kara Quan-Montgomery on July 17, 2018 at 9:17 am

    Nice video guys. I would highly recommend Shimoda Designs bags. It was a very successful kickstarter last year. I find them more comfortable that my F-Stop bags. And one of F-Stops former designers created the bags so he has similar design elements.

  44. Emerson Tapia on July 17, 2018 at 9:18 am

    Can you guys recommend a camera please I’m about to spend like $1,000

  45. adrian martinez on July 17, 2018 at 9:19 am

    RVCA Zak Noyle backpack for quick trips
    and mindshift rotation 180degree pro for longer getaways

  46. Power Couple Life on July 17, 2018 at 9:20 am

    Love your videos! Subscribed! <3

  47. EvaKefa on July 17, 2018 at 9:20 am

    I have an osprey fairpoint 15 backpack but would like to add a day packbag which is big enough to carry a mirrorlesscamera, dji spark drone and gimlet and MacBook air but small enough to fit into the other packbag. Which of the rucksacks shown in the videos would you recommend?

  48. Matt on July 17, 2018 at 9:23 am

    So to keep things cheap and light, obviously it makes sense to travel with only a carry on. Are you using one bag for everything, including the camera gear and clothes? I’m backpacking Europe but I need to restrict everything to a single carry on bag with has a daypack obviously. Not sure how to go about that.

  49. Iván Romero on July 17, 2018 at 9:23 am

    You guys are the best!

  50. Evan Tung on July 17, 2018 at 9:24 am

    The peak design bag does have a hip strap
