01 Lo­ca­tion Con­sid­er­lap­top slot whereisn’t ideal you’ll for be car­ry­ing shoot­ing, on as a a trek, sleek while day­packa full-blown­with a hik­ing back­pack doesn’t really be­long in the city.

02 Cus­tomi­sa­tion Most day­packs come with cus­tomis­able di­viders in the cam­era com­part­ment, but a re­mov­able cam­era insert is bet­ter still, and some bags can be re­con­fig­ured into a nor­mal back­pack.

03 Added ex­tras Just be­cause th­ese bags have split per­son­al­i­ties doesn’t mean they skimp on ex­tras. Fea­tures like lap­top slots, tri­pod hold­ers and hip belts are all use­ful ad­di­tions.

04 Rapid fire When you need to snap a shot in a hurry, a day­pack that lets you ac­cess your Nikon on the go with­out stop­ping is a must.

05 Ev­ery cloud You’ll want to your gear to stay dry if you and your bag get caught in an un­ex­pected shower, so it’s worth find­ing a day­pack that comes with a sep­a­rate rain cover.
