Recently we have seen several camera bags that look like anything but camera bags, and Wandrd’s new Prvke 21 is the latest example for this trend. With its roll-top and rugged style it looks like a cross between a bike messenger bag and a mountaineering backpack. The Prvke 21 is made from ballistic nylon, water-resistant Tarpaulin and rugged YKK zippers, the combination of which should keep all your gear dry and safe. Magnetic loops and large buckles allow for easy conversion from backpack to tote.
The Prvke 21’s design has been based on feedback from users of the original Prvke bag, many of whom were looking for a smaller version. The interior is customizable and its 21 liter capacity, that can be expanded to 25 liters, makes it a good option for the commute bag, for the occasional hike or even a quick weekend trip.
That said, photographers will probably be most interested in the Prvke 21’s removable camera cube. It holds a mirrorless camera with up to four lenses or a full-frame DSLR body plus two lenses. Integrated straps allow for “hands-free” access to your camera gear and a camera sling keeps your camera ready without having it dangling from your neck. In addition the bag comes with a hidden passport pocket, front pockets for the small stuff, a padded laptop-sleeve and various other small pockets, for keys, mobile phone and memory cards.
If you like the look of the bag you can now secure one by pledging $149 for the early-bird option on the Prvke 21’s Kickstarter page. Delivery is planned by Christmas 2016. More information can also be found on the Wandrd website.
