WHAT FITS IN THIS BAG?
Compact & Efficient
Depart tomorrow for summer adventures. Hiking to The Wave and White Pocket, then off to Morocco to travel by Camel and Hot Air Balloon. This pack, unlike my other 20 bags/packs, forces you to only bring what’s important. Canon 5DS, 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8, Zeiss 21mm prime, 13” macPro, Gitzo Carbon traveler and a Light L16 for backup. All ya Need!
Perfect Mothers Day Gift
My wife is using this with her new Nikon system and loves it. Nice looking bag.
Perfect size for daily use
I bought the Backstory 13 and the Everyday Backpack Zip (15L) by Peak Design so I could compare them side by side. I'm 5'3” and have been looking for a smaller backpack to carry my Canon 6d and one or two extra lenses. Both packs are well built, similar in size, and can be accessed from the top. I loaded each one with the camera body and 70-300 lens attached, an 85mm lens, a 24-105 lens, a phone, a few incidentals and an iPad. The PD was pretty stiff to open (both the material and the zippers) and readjusting the dividers was a little more difficult than the Backstory 13. Overall, it was fairly comfortable and had a lot of great features but one big drawback for me was that didn’t come with a waist belt. The weight of the gear adds up quickly and the belt helps take the weight off your shoulders and back. The Backstory 13 was noticeably more comfortable right away. It not only comes with more dividers but they’re easier to adjust. The opening at the top is far more convenient to access, the straps have thicker padding and it has a waist belt. Both packs are nice, but the Backstory 13 is more comfortable so I returned the PD pack.
Really like this backpack. Well made, as someone who writes and photographs being able to have my laptop and tablet with me is nice. I also like the top camera access works better for me over a side access. I set my bag on the front passenger footwell so if I need my camera a quick zip and there it is. One thing if you could make the tablet slot a bit wider it might fit a tablet with its case installed which a lot of use. I wished in came in black but the gray and white is growing on me.( I got another black camera backpack if I want to use a black bag)
BackStory13: Great Slim Profile Well Built Minimalist Bag.
Overall very good but the pass through for attaching it to the Think Tank Airport International roller is difficult at best. It’s a struggle to get it on and off. It could be designed with a narrower band and a little more flexibility.
