As a Photohiker gen.1 owner, I am happy to report that Cosyspeed has launched the Photohiker Gen. 2 on Kickstarter.
The difference to so many other “photo-backpacks” is that this one is designed together with Vaude, hence this is a professional hiking backpack adapted to photographers needs.
So you get the high comfort thanks to features like “areoflex back” that puts a bit of distance between your back and the backpack, so you’ll sweat a lot less (a MUST HAVE feature for me, sadly not available on 99,9% of other photo backpacks), easy to adjust carrying system and more plus features like a built-in rain cover and more. Check out the details here.
And of course plenty of space for your gear and your laptop.
It’s the bag that I was personally looking for a long time, and also the guys at DPRTV loved the first generation bag (video below).
Now the second generation comes in different sizes and configurations. You can check it out all here at kickstarter.
I also feel confident to bring this kickstarter campaign to your attention, as Cosyspeed is an established brand, I have a few of their bags, I met the guy running it a few years ago at Photokina and he is an absolutely genuine person. Plus some of their stuff is made Africa to support local communities with fair salaries. A good guy running a good company.
