Originally made for our 25th Anniversary and now back due to popular demand the Rucksack 25 is perfect for the serious photographer who wants to spread the load across both shoulders. The biggest of our two backpacks and improved from the previous design the bag is intended to carry a DSLR plus a few small to medium-large lenses with a high level of protection.
In the main compartment, the bag features closed cell foam padding on all sides - 2.5cm thick in places - to protect from bumps and impacts. Additionally, inside the main compartment are removable, repositionable padded foam dividers to create places to store spare lenses, light meters, etc. Of course, all this foam padding leaves the camera and lenses incredibly protected.
Unlike some bags out there the protection doesn't stop with just the padding - the three-layer Stormblock fabric, including a layer of butyl rubber, is impermeable to water. Further, the double zips that grant access to the main compartment and the double zips that allow access to the front pocket are both protected by rain guards - the rain guard on the main compartment is adjustable with a drawstring so it can be closed tight over the zip or pulled back to allow ease of access. The outer protection is finished off with four brass feet on the top grain leather bottom corners to minimize wear.
Extra storage is provided by a slim document pocket inside the main compartment that's ideal for a map or tourist leaflets and by the generously sized front pocket - perfect for carrying a newspaper or a raincoat. If that isn't enough AVEA pockets can be attached to strong leather patches on the side.
Finally, ergonomically designed shoulder pads and central backing both made of padded spacer fabric promote breathability and make it easier to carry the bag for long periods.
All in all, this will be the perfect medium-sized backpack for a great many photographers - use it and you'll see why so many requested we start making it again!
